ABSTRACT

Natural products have been studied aiming to understand their biological properties. Thus, this study aimed to investigate the antimicrobial activity of three essential oils (EOs) used in aromatherapy procedures, a natural therapy with great emphasis currently used against Bacillus subtilis, Staphylococcus aureus, Klebsiella pneumonia and Salmonella enterica strains. Three medicinally important plants Swertia ciliata, Acorus calamus and Viola serpens were evaluated for their antimicrobial activities. The pure oil of Swertia ciliata exhibit maximum activity against Bacillus subtilis with strong inhibition zone of 21.0.±0.26 mm diameter and MIC 200 μL/mL. The pure oil of Acorus calamus exhibit maximum activity against Klebsiella pneumonia with strong inhibition zone of 21.4±0.12 mm diameter and MIC 200 μL/mL, and The pure oil of Viola serpens exhibit maximum activity against Bacillus subtilis with strong inhibition zone of 20.0±0.16 mm diameter and MIC 200 μL/mL.
