Composition and antimicrobial activity of the essential oil of Salvia palaestina Bentham growing in Saudi Arabia



Composition and antimicrobial activity of the essential oil of Salvia palaestina Bentham growing in Saudi Arabia



Saudi Pharmaceutical Journal 15(3/4): 218-223



The aerial parts of Salvia palaestina Bentham (Lamiaceae) on steam distillation afforded an essential oil, which was analyzed by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC/MS). Out of thirty-eight peaks (representing 99.2% of the oil), thirty-four components representing 97.1% of the total oil composition were identified. The major components were sclareol (26.8%), beta -caryophyllene (16.9%), linalool (7.8%), guaiol (5.4%), and 1,8-cineole (5.2%).
