Abstract The chemical compositions of the essential oils from rhizomes of Curcuma aromatica cultivated in Japan and India were analyzed by GC and GC/MS. These oils were extremely different. The major constituents in both oils from Japanese samples were curdione, germacrone, 1,8-cineole, (45,5S)-germacrone-4,5-epoxide, beta-elemene, and linalool, whereas those in the oil from Indian were beta-curcumene, ar-curcumene, xanthorrhizol, germacrone, camphor, and curzerenone.
