Sources of natural antioxidants are primarily plant phenolics, which may occur in all parts of the plants such as fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, leaves, roots, and barks. Interest has considerably increased in finding naturally occurring chemical constituents for use in food or medicinal material to replace synthetic chemical. The chemical constituents of leaf, flower and stem samples were analyzed by using Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS). The leaf was found to be rich 2-(2-ethoxyethoxy)ethanol (26.45%) and Kaur-16-ene (3.37%), while 2-(ethoxyethoxy)ethanol (11.08%) and butyl cyclohexyl ester 1,2-Benzenedicarboxylic acid (3.48%) were the main components in the flower. Octadecamethyl cyclononasiloxane (5.24), Kaurene (3.39%) and 1,2,3,4-tetramethoxy-5-(2-propenyl)-benzene (3.26) were the predominant constituents in the stem.
