Essential oils of aromatic plants with antifungal, antibacterial, antiviral, and cytotoxic properties – an overview

Author(s):

Kumari, Chandana BC and Nagaveni HC

Abstract:
The abundant use of anti-infective agents resulted in the emergence of drug-resistant bacteria, fungi, and viruses. To overcome the increasing resistance of pathogenic microbes, a variety of medicinal plants have been screened worldwide for their antimicrobial properties. The aim is to find new, effective antimicrobial agents with novel modes of actions. Essential oils derived from aromatic medicinal plants have been reported to exhibit exceptionally good antimicrobial effects against bacteria, yeasts, filamentous fungi, and viruses. The progress of this expanding scientific field will be documented here by the most important results published in the last decade.
