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%), a-pinene (30.7%), tcrpin-4-ol (7.5%), P-pincnc (6.5%), Iimonene (5.6%) and bomyl 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.
