The genus Salvia (Lamiaceae) is represented by more than 900 species distributed worldwide [1]. In Algeria, there are 23 species from which S. jaminiana, S. verbenaca subsp., S. clandestina, S. barrilieri, and S. argentea subsp. aurasiaca were the subject of our studies [2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7]. We present here the first report on the essential oil composition, the antioxidant, anticholinesterase, and the antibacterial activities of the species Salvia buchananii Hedge which has been previously investigated for its phytochemicals [8, 9].

Extraction. The hydrodistillation, in a Clenvenger-type apparatus, of fresh aerial parts (200 g) of Salvia buchananii, collected at Constantine in August 2015 (Voucher number: LOST Sb08.16), yielded 0.9% of a yellow fragrant essential oil.

GC and GC-MS Analyses. GC analysis was performed on a Hewlett Packard 6890 gas chromatograph equipped with an FID and HP-5MS capillary column. The GC/MS was performed using a Hewlett Packard 6890 gas chromatograph coupled...
