This present work is part of a contribution to the recovery of natural substances. We were interested in valorising two Moroccan species of rosemary, Rosmarinus tournefortii de Noé and R. officinalis L., as possible medicinal and aromatic plants. This study gives a new perspective about the presence of some major compounds in R. tournefortii and R. officinalis L. plants. The essential oil obtained by hydrodistillation, was analysed by GC/FID and GC/MS. The constituents were identified by their mass spectra and retention indices. About 99.50 % of the total components were identified from the oil obtained from the plants, with 39.27 % camphor as the major oil component from R. tournefortii and 56.50 % 1.8-Cineole the major oil component from R. officinalis. The second study gives a new perspective about the presence of some major trace elements in two samples of rosemary plants collected from Moroccan regions in which they grew in 2011. The samples were composed of 14 elements (Cd, Cr, Cu, Fe, Li, Mn, Pb, Zn, Se, La, Ca, K, Mg, and Na) determined by inductive coupled plasma atomic emission spectrometry (ICP-AES). These results may be useful for the evaluation of the quality of cosmetic aromatic plants.
