The aerial parts of Pituranthos tortuosus, collected during November and April, were analysed by GC and GC–MS. In total, 56 compounds were identified by their retention indices. Antimicrobial assays showed that the November essential oil is more effective than that of April against the Gram-positive bacteria Enterococcus faecalis and Staphylococcus aureus. The April essential oil displayed the highest activity against Staphylococcus aureus.
