Abstract: The discoveries of pharmacopoecia of scientific medicine which was derived from the herbal knowledge of native people simply as a result of the search of new type of food was lopsided but have been developed through modern experimentations and instrumentations. The extraction, isolation and Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS) analysis of the plant bulbs were carried out using Methanol, Ethyl acetate and Petroleum ether crude extracts. The methods employed were soxhlet extraction, column chromatography (CC), thin layer chromatography (TLC) and GC-MS analysis. Fractions that show single spot on the TLC plate from each solvent were elucidated for GC-MS spectral technique. The GCMS analysis identify the compound accounting for the molecular masses, fragmentation patterns, thermostatically molecular mass ions and the major ions of the fragments. This result showed the presence of 2-methylbutane, methyl benzene, 2,3-propanediol, 1,4-dimethyl benzene, 2-prop-2-enoyl benzoic acid, hexadecanoic acid, methyl-11-methyldodecanoate, hexanol, 1,3-octadiene, pentane, octanal, hexenal,2-methylpentane,heptanal4,6-dimethyldodecane, nonane, pentadecane, decane, 2-oxo-phenyl methyl,2,2-dimethylbutane, phenol,2,4-bis(1,1-dimethylethyl)-5-methyl, 2,4-octadiene and propanamide. These compounds are indications that the bulb of C. zeylanicum has potentials for affordable and locally available alternative plant medications for bone settings and skin troubles.
