Economically important and endemic plant species have many important uses. In this research essential oil and fatty acid constituents of endemic plant taxa Origanum acutidens, Micromeria elliptica, Nepeta congesta var. congesta and Ballota saxatilis subsp. brachyodonta were analyzed. Detected major compounds as: carvacrol (18.2%), thymol (11.3%) and caryophyllene oxide (7.5%) in Origanum acutidens; camphor (12.9%), caryophyllene oxide (12.5%) and pulegone (10.2%) in Micromeria elliptica; -cineole (18.8%) and nepetalactone (14.5%) in Nepeta congesta var. congesta; - caryophyllene (11.0%) and pulegone (7.2%) in of Ballota saxatilis subsp. brachyodonta. Palmitic (31.46%), Steraic (13.22%), Petroselinic (22.22%), Linoleic (9.94%) and Linolenic acid (22.53%) were found to be main fatty acids.
