  • The study evaluated the antimicrobial activity of Thymus vulgaris essential oil (29.74% thymol) and Origanum syriacum essential oil (66.64% carvacrol) on standard and human wild type strains of Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus pneumoniae and Candida albicans prelevated from the oral cavity. Some possible adverse effects were determined by hematological and blood biochemical routine tests performed on experience animals after the oral treatment with essential oils. The study is part of the… CONTINUE READING
