Essential oils (EOs) fromSalvia dolomiticaandSalvia somalensis, widely employed in the cosmetic and perfume industry, were analyzed for composition and tested against bacterial and fungal pathogens isolated from clinical and environmental specimens. The analyses were carried out againstStaphylococcus aureus,Staphylococcus pseudointermedius,Pseudomonas aeruginosa,Escherichia coli,Streptococcus canis,Streptococcus pyogenes,Klebsiella pneumoniae,Proteus mirabilis,Microsporum canis,Microsporum gypseum,Trichophyton mentagrophytes,Aspergillus niger,Aspergillus flavus,Candida albicans,Candida krusei,Mucorsp. andTrichothecium roseum. Both EOs showed similar percentages of total monoterpenes and sesquiterpene hydrocarbons. The main constituents were 1,8-cineole andβ-caryophyllene inS.dolomiticaand bornyl acetate and camphor inS.somalensis. The selected EOs have no relevant antifungal or antibacterial activities if compared to conventional drugs.

Abstract

Essential oils (EOs) fromSalvia dolomiticaandSalvia somalensis, widely employed in the cosmetic and perfume industry, were analyzed for composition and tested against bacterial and fungal pathogens isolated from clinical and environmental specimens. The analyses were carried out againstStaphylococcus aureus,Staphylococcus pseudointermedius,Pseudomonas aeruginosa,Escherichia coli,Streptococcus canis,Streptococcus pyogenes,Klebsiella pneumoniae,Proteus mirabilis,Microsporum canis,Microsporum gypseum,Trichophyton mentagrophytes,Aspergillus niger,Aspergillus flavus,Candida albicans,Candida krusei,Mucorsp. andTrichothecium roseum. Both EOs showed similar percentages of total monoterpenes and sesquiterpene hydrocarbons. The main constituents were 1,8-cineole andβ-caryophyllene inS.dolomiticaand bornyl acetate and camphor inS.somalensis. The selected EOs have no relevant antifungal or antibacterial activities if compared to conventional drugs.
