Dear Anis,

Here is a reference of an article about in vitro culture of Hypericum 
canariense L., that mentions the use of a natural antioxidant 
(carnosic acid) extracted from Salvia canariensis L. (Lamiaceae 

MEDEROS, M. S., 1991. In vitro growth and multiplication of Hypericum 
canariense L. Acta Horticulturae, 289: 133-135.

Hope this helps,
