Antifungal Properties of Some Essential Oils against Saccharomyces cerevisiae (CTBM)- Lupinepublishers

Antifungal Properties of Some Essential Oils against  Saccharomyces cerevisiae (CTBM)- Lupinepublishers

To evaluate the antifungal activity of four essential oils against Saccharomyces cerevisiae in vitro, four commercial essential oils extracted from Thymus vulgaris, Echinacea Angustifolia, Rosmarinus officinali and
Salvia officinalis were tested at three different concentrations (10, 50 or 100 ppm) for their antimicrobial activity against Saccharomyces cerevisiae using well diffusion method. S.cerevisiae was least susceptible to the essential oils. The diameter of zoneinhibition ranged between 0 and 3 mm.  E. angustifolia, and R. officinalis oils appeared to be the most active, while T.vulgaris and S. officinalis oils exhibited most weak antifungal activity against S. cerevisiae. These findings increase the possibility of exploiting these essential oils as a safe alternative natural preservative.
