Abstract: The aerial parts of Salvia palacstina Benin am (Lamiaccac) on steam distillation afforded an essential oil, which was analyzed by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GG'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 sclarcol (26.S %), p-caryophyllcne (16.9 %), linalool {7.8 %), guaiol (5.4 %), and 1,8 -cineole (5.2 %). The oil was lested against seven Gram positive and negative bacteria and two pathogenic fungi, to exhibit an interesting antimicrobial profile.
