The essential oil of an Italian wild type of sage classified as Salvia officinalis L. var. angustifolia Ten., was analyzed by GC/MS. Thirty-four components of the oil were identified, monoterpenes being the most abundant (about 70%). The oil, characterized by high content of α-thujone (39%) and considerable amounts of β-pinene, 1,8-cineole, β-caryophyllene and α-humulene showed a composition very similar to that of the commercially available Dalmatian sage oil confirming the ascribed sage classification.

Abstract

The essential oil of an Italian wild type of sage classified as Salvia officinalis L. var. angustifolia Ten., was analyzed by GC/MS. Thirty-four components of the oil were identified, monoterpenes being the most abundant (about 70%). The oil, characterized by high content of α-thujone (39%) and considerable amounts of β-pinene, 1,8-cineole, β-caryophyllene and α-humulene showed a composition very similar to that of the commercially available Dalmatian sage oil confirming the ascribed sage classification.
