Medicinal distilled waters (hydrola) are substances that are prepared by distilling water in the presence of aromatic plants or plants without fragrance. In Iran, these waters are often used for medicinal properties and their taste and smell are similar to plants and volatile substances from which aromatic water is prepared. Some of these aromatic waters have been studied, previously. In this manuscript we have analyzed some hydrolas from some medicinal herbs in Iranian Traditional Medicine, so that it may be used to identify and standardize such waters. The hydrolas of 13 Iranian medicinal herbs were prepared and analyzed by GC/MS. Major components of Tripleurospermum disciforme, Citrus aurantium, Alhagi pseudoalhagi, Foeniculum vulgare, Cuminum cyminum, Bunium persicum, Cichorium intybus, Mentha spicata, Anethum graveolens, Salix aegyptica, Zataria multiflora, Rosa damascana and Fumaria parviflora were identified. Except rose water, it’s first report analysis of some hydrola from Iranian medicinal plants. These analysis may be help to standardization of high-consumption aromatic waters.
