Antibacterial Properties of Essential Oil Extracted from Kaffir Lime (Citrus Hystrix) Peel
Background: Citrus hystrix (C. hystrix), locally known as ‘limau purut,’ is Malaysia’s major commercial fruit harvest. Besides being a common ingredient in Asian cuisines, the extracted essential oil
Cytostatic, cytotoxic, and antibacterial activities of essential oil isolated from Citrus hystrix
TLDR
Melanoma cells were more sensitive to the essential oil from C. hystrix peel than normal cells (HSF) and a need for more detailed research on its possible use in therapy is suggested.
Essential oil composition and antibacterial activity of Canarium strictum Roxb. resin
TLDR
The essential oil composition and antibacterial activity of the resin of Canarium strictum Roxb was investigated and the oil was found to be active against all the strains.
Chemical Composition and Biological Activities of Lemon (Citrus limon) Leaf Essential Oil
TLDR
The results obtained in this study have shown the moderate biological potential of essential oil of C. limon leaf is probably due to its particular chemical composition, mainly the high amounts of linalool, which could be used to raise the shelf life of foods as a natural preservative ingredient.
Antibacterial activity assay of essential oils from limau kuit peel against Staphylococcus aureus
This research aims to determine the antibacterial activity of essential oils from Limau Kuit (a local variety of limes of South Kalimantan) peel against Staphylococcus aureus ATCC25923, the minimum
Antifungal Effect of Kaffir Lime Leaf Extract on Selected Fungal Species of Pathogenic Otomycosis in In vitro Culture Medium
TLDR
KLL has significant antifungal effect towards pathogenic fungi causing otomycosis, particularly Aspergillus niger and Candida albicans, particularly KLL aqueous extract have bigger mean of inhibition as compare to aqueously extract against CandidaAlbicans.
Citrus hystrix (makrut oil) oral sprays inhibit Streptococcus mutans biofilm formation
TLDR
Results show that all strains of S. mutans tested in this study were sensitive to most of the oil formulations and might be an alternative, inexpensive natural medication to prevent dental caries.
