The potential of using castor oil as an antibacterial agent was investigated on three species of bacteria chiefly responsible for throat, skin and enteric infections. Staphylococcus aureus was used as the test organism for skin bacteria, the throat bacteria used was Streptococcus viridans, while for enteric bacteria, Shigella dysenteriae was used. Castor oil was extracted by cold pressing of seed kernels. The extract obtained was assayed for antimicrobial activity on the in-vitro growth of test… Expand
