BACKGROUND The aim of the present study was to appraise variation in the chemical composition, and antimicrobial and cytotoxic activities of essential oils from the leaves of four Mentha species-M. arvensis, M. piperita, M. longifolia and M. spicata-as affected by harvesting season. Disc diffusion and broth microdilution susceptibility assays were used to evaluate the antimicrobial activity of Mentha essential oils against a panel of microorganisms. The cytotoxicity of essential oils was tested… Expand

Antimicrobial and antioxidant activities of three Mentha species essential oils.
TLDR
The present study describes the antimicrobial activity and free radical scavenging capacity (RSC) of essential oils from Mentha aquatica L., Mentha longifolia L., and Mentha piperita L, and the most powerful scavenging compounds were monoterpene ketones (menthone and isomenthone) in the essential oils of M.Longifolia and M. aquatica.

Composition and antimicrobial activity of the essential oils of three Satureja species growing in Tanzania
TLDR
Hydro-distilled volatile oils from the aerial parts of three Satureja species were investigated, mainly by a combination of GC and GC/MS, and showed that the oils had a high antimicrobial activity against two Gram-positive and four Gram-negative bacteria, two oral pathogens and three pathogenic fungi. Expand
Chemical composition, antioxidant and antimicrobial activities of basil (Ocimum basilicum) essential oils depends on seasonal variations.
TLDR
The essential oils investigated, exhibited good antioxidant activity as measurements by DPPH free radical-scavenging ability, bleaching β-carotene in linoleic acid system and inhibition of linolesic acid oxidation, as seasons changed. Expand
Seasonal and phenological variations of the essential oil from the narrow endemic species Artemisia molinieri and its biological activities.
TLDR
The volatile components of the aerial parts of Artemisia molinieri, an endemic wormwood of southern France, were analyzed by GC and GC-MS and have shown interesting antioxidant activities on the basis of alpha-tocopherol as reference compound. Expand
Biochemical activities of Iranian Mentha piperita L. and Myrtus communis L. essential oils.
TLDR
GC-MS analysis of essential oils of Iranian Mentha piperita and Myrtus communis extracted by hydrodistillation lead to identification of 26 and 32 compounds, respectively, which suggest feasibility of application of M. pipersita oil in treatment of the infections caused by C. albicans and E. coli.

Antimicrobial and antioxidant properties of the essential oils and methanol extract from Mentha longifolia L. ssp. longifolia
TLDR
The essential oil showed strong antimicrobial activity against all 30 microorganisms tested whereas the methanol extract almost remained inactive, and the extract showed much better activity than the essential oil in antioxidant activity assays employed, e.g. in the inhibition of free radical 2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) and β-carotene/linoleic acid systems. Expand
Antimicrobial activities of methanol extracts and essential oils of Rosmarinus officinalis, depending on location and seasonal variations
TLDR
The results indicated that the tested bacteria were sensitive to the essential oils and partially to the methanolic extracts, and the antimicrobial activities of the essential aromas and extracts differed, depending on location and seasonal variations. Expand
