Cinnamomum bodinieri Levi is a fast-growing species in tropical forests and widely distributed in southern China, Rich essential oil is in the leaves, which can be utilized as folk medicine. The chemical constituents of the essential oil obtained from the leaves of Cinnamomum bodinieri Levi were analyzed by GC-MS-DS. Sixty-three constituents were identified in the essential oils and the main constituents of the essential oils were terpinoids. The principal components are (content): camphor(40.81%), cineole (24.87 %), a-terpneol (8.75%), ß-pinene (5.17 %), a-caryophyllene (2.17 %), caryophyllene (2.14 %), a-pinene (1.57 %), p-menth-l-en-4-ol (1.28 %), germacrene D (1.18 %).
