The essential oil was obtained by hydrodistillation and the identification and quantification of components were achieved with the use of GC-MS analysis. The antioxidant activity was evaluated by the method of sequestration of DPPH. Essential oils were used for study the cytotoxic front larvae of . In the evaluation of the antimicrobial activity of essential oils, we employed the disk-diffusion method. The potential larvicide in mosquito larvae of the third stage of development of to different concentrations of essential oils was evaluated. The major compounds found in the essential oils of were linalool (51.8%) and epoxyocimene (19.3%). The percentage of antioxidant activity was 79.9 ± 1.6%. The essential oil showed LC = 414.6 g/mL front of and is considered highly toxic. It shows sensitivity and halos significant inhibition against . The essential possessed partial larvicidal efficiency against .
