Articles » The In Vitro Action of Essential Oils on Aspergillus flavus

Abstract: The fungistatic and fungicidal activities of the essential oils of Thymus vulgaris
L. (thyme), Myrtus communis L. (myrtle), Eugenia caryophyillata (clove) and Citrus aurantifolia
(lime) were determined, and most effective essential oils were found to those of thyme and clove.
Thyme and clove oils completely inhibited A. flavus growth either when added into the medium at
600 and 900 μl l-1 or by the volatile oil with 12 and 24 μl per 8cm diameter Petri dish.
