annua before flowering contains mostly oxygenated monoterpenes, such as camphor and 1,8-cineol and during flowering period contains almost same amounts of these monoterpenoid representative, but in different contents, and after flowering period contains slightly higher amount of oxygen containing sesquiterpenoids, such as Caryophellene oxide and Spathulenol [3].
