Abstract

The present work aimed to study the phytochemical composition of the essential oil of Apium graveolens var. dulce (Mill.) growing in the region of Sidi Bel Abb´es (Algeria, NW) as a condiment and a medicinal plant, and to evaluate its healing activity. CG/MS analysis of the essential oil obtained from the seeds led to the identification of 20 compounds representing 98.5% of the oil, with limonene (54%) and β-selinene (30.7%) as the dominant compounds. The essential oil showed exceptional healing power, with the burning surface shrinking to 100% after 15 days of application.
