Composition and Antimicrobial Activity of the Essential Oil of Salvia lanigera

Tawfeq A. Al-Howiriny

Abstract:
The aerial parts of Salvia lanigera (Labiatae) afforded an essential oil on steam distillation, which was analyzed by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC/MS) using direct injection. Out of forty-eight peaks (representing 99.4% of the oil), forty-two components were identified representing 98.8% of the total oil composition. The major components were 1,8-cineole (36.2%), α-pinene (10.7%), terpin-4-ol (7.5%), β-pinene (6.5%), limonene (5.6%) and bornyl acetate (4.5%). Furthermore, the oil exhibited a very interesting antimicrobial profile after it was tested against seven gram-positive and –negative bacteria and two pathogenic fungi.
