In this study, we analyzed the chemical composition of essential oils of two types of lavender cultivated in Herzegovina. Lavender essential oil was isolated by hydro distillation. Chemical characterization of individual components of essential oil was performed by gas chromatography GC-MS. The most ingredients of essential oil of Lavanda angustifolia are linalool (28.01%), linalyl acetate (27.59%), cis-β- ocimene (5.05), trans β-ocimene (4.09), terpinene-4-ol (4.86), lavandulyl acetate (5.90) i β-caryophyllene (3.93). The most ingredients of essential oil of Lavanda sp are: linalool (34.76%), linalyl acetate (27.59%), 1.8-cineole (3.21), camphor (6.93), borneol (4.05), -terpineol (2.49), terpinene-4-ol (3.21), lavandulyl acetate (2.83) i β-caryophyllene (2.28).
