Leonotis nepetifolia is one of the most common aromatic plants (Family Lamiaceae) traditionally used for its ethnomedicinal potential. The plant is known for its antibacterial, antifungal, antioxidant, antispasmodic and antiasthmatic potential. The FTIR, NMR and MS study of the chloroform extract of this plant showed the presence of hederacine- B. Hederacine- B is the first report from Leonotis nepetifolia. The availability of hederacine – B also indicates that the plant might be helpful in cancer treatment.  

Keywords: Aromatic plant. Hederacine- B, Leonotis nepetifolia.
