Steam distillation of the essential oil of P. jauberti was performed using a Clevenger apparatus. Essential oils were analyzed by gas Gas Chromatography-flame ioziation detector (GC-FID) and Gas Chromatography coupled to chromatography–mass spectrometry (GC-MS). The majorchemical components identified in P. jaubertii essential oil include carvotanacetone (63.975%), 1-methyl-1,2-propanedione (5.887%), 2,5-dimethoxy-para-cymene (3.303%) and ar-curcumene (3.276%). The antimicrobial activity of the essential oil of P. jaubertii was evaluated against all tested microorganisms. P. jaubertii essential oil inhibited all tested microorganisms except Escherichia coli with a minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) of 5.0 μg/mL against Staphylococcus aureus
