(Geraniaceae) growing wild in Mediterranean region of Turkey were obtained by hydrodistillation of the aerial parts (calyx), with a yield of 0.2 % and analyzed by GC and GC-MS. Thirteen components, representing 98.12 % of the oil, were identified. The main constituents of the oil were cis-limonene oxide (47.90 %), beta-caryophyllene (9.70 %) and alpha-bisabalol (8.23 %). Oxygenated monoterpenes (51.25 %) were the main group of constituents of B. orphanidis essential oil.
