The essential oils of the inflorescences and leaves of Achillea coarctata Poir. (Compositae) growing spontaneous in Greece were obtained through hydrodistillation and analysed by GC-FID and GC-MS. Both oils were characterized by the abundance of oxygenated monoterpenes with 1,8-cineole (26.9% and 29.1%, respectively), camphor (22.1%, 9.2%) and borneol (5.0%, 6.8%) being the major constituents. Their in vitro antimicrobial activity against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria strains and the yeast Candida albicans was determined.
