Essential oils obtained from inflorescences of three Origanum vulgare L. ssp. hirtum (Link) Ietswaart samples, growing wild in different locations in Campania (Southern Italy), were analysed. Three chemotypes were found: the first, with a prevalence of carvacrol/thymol; the second, characterized by the prevalence of thymol/α-terpineol; the third, featuring a prevalence of linalyl acetate and linalool. This chemical study attempts to provide a contribution in shedding light on the relationship…

Chemical Composition and Biological Activity of the Essential Oil of Origanum vulgare ssp. hirtum from Different Areas in the Southern Apennines (Italy)
The chemical composition of the essential oils of Origanum vulgare ssp. hirtum, growing wild in three different localities in the Southern Apennines, was studied by GC‐FID and GC/MS analyses. In
Antimicrobial activity of essential oils of cultivated oregano (Origanum vulgare), sage (Salvia officinalis), and thyme (Thymus vulgaris) against clinical isolates of Escherichia coli, Klebsiella oxytoca, and Klebsiella pneumoniae
TLDR
The antimicrobial efficiency of the EOs from oregano, sage, and thyme cultivated under different conditions in a region of NE Greece was studied in comparison to the data available in literature and most efficient were the E Os from thyme followed by those ofOregano.
Chemical Composition and Antimicrobial Activity of Origanum vulgare subsp. viride Essential Oils Cultivated in Two Different Regions of Iran
TLDR
The antimicrobial test results indicated that the essential oils had antibacterial and antifungal activities against all of the tested microorganisms, and has a good capacity as an alternative to synthetic products in various industries.
Chemical composition, antimicromicrobial activity and insecticidal activity against the lesser mealworm Alphitobius diaperinus (Panzer) (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae) of Origanum vulgare L. ssp. hirtum (Link) and Artemisia dracunculus L. essential oils.
TLDR
Greek oregano EO may be a good alternative to antibiotic growth promoters and coccidiostats whose use in feeding farm animals has been prohibited since January 2006 under European Union directives.
Commercial and wild Sicilian Origanum vulgare essential oils: chemical composition, antimicrobial activity and repellent effects
TLDR
The study extends knowledge on oregano EOs for their potential use as food protectants during storage with relevant antimicrobial and repellent activity, with variable efficacy depending on chemical composition, concentration, targeted species and exposure time.
Antimicrobial activity and constituents of the hexane extracts from leaf and stem of Origanum vulgare L. ssp. Viride (Boiss.) Hayek. growing wild in Northwest Iran
TLDR
The hexane extract from O. vulgare leaf was detected as an important source of unsaturated fatty acid compounds and the bioassay showed that the both oils exhibited a moderate antimicrobial activity.

Essential oil chemical composition of wild populations of Italian oregano spice (Origanum vulgare ssp. hirtum (Link) Ietswaart): a preliminary evaluation of their use in chemotaxonomy by cluster analysis. 1. Inflorescences
TLDR
The main components of the essential oil were thymol and carvacrol, while their biogenetic precursors, p-cymene and γ-terpinene, were the most aboundant monoterpenes, and a significant variability of composition possibly correlated with the individual genotypes was observed.
Antimicrobial and Cytotoxic Activities of Origanum Essential Oils
Three Origanum essential oils, Origanum vulgare ssp. hirtum, Origanum dictamnus, and a commercially available Origanum oil, were analyzed by gas chromatography−mass spectrometry (GC−MS) and showed a
Composition and antimicrobial activity of the essential oils of two Origanum species.
TLDR
The essential oils obtained from the aerial parts of Origanum scabrum and Origaum microphyllum exhibited a very interesting antimicrobial profile after they were tested against six Gram-negative and -positive bacteria and three pathogenic fungi.
Antimicrobial properties of the linalol‐rich essential oil of Hyssopus officinalis L. var decumbens (Lamiaceae)
TLDR
Linalol, and in a lesser way, 1,8-cineole, may contribute to the greater antimicrobial activity of var.
Variability of Essential Oil Content and Composition of Origanum vulgare L. Populations from a North Mediterranean Area (Liguria Region, Northern Italy)
TLDR
Native populations of Origanum vulgare L. from the Liguria and Emilia regions of northern Italy were analysed for essential oil content and composition, and the presence of some particular morphological characters suggest that the taxonomy of O. Vulgare, especially in its western distribution area, needs further investigation.
Composition of the essential oils of Turkish Origanum species with commercial importance
TLDR
GC and GC/MS profiles of the essential oils of the above mentioned Origanum species are presented in a comparative manner and it is found that O. majorana and O. minutiflorum appeared to be more stable in carvacrol, containing 78.3–79.5% and 75.1–83.6% respectively.
Antimicrobial activity of essential oils and their components against the three major pathogens of the cultivated button mushroom, Agaricus bisporus
TLDR
Essential oils of Matricaria chamommilla, Mentha piperita, M. spicata, Ocimum basilicum, Thymus vulgaris, Origanum vulgare, Salvia officinalis, Citrus limon and C. aurantium were tested for inhibitory activity against the three major pathogens of the button mushroom.
