Shuchi Kaushik, Raghvendra Kumar Mishra, Sharmistha Banerjee and Rajesh Singh Tomar*

ABSTRACT

Nosocomial infections are frequently associated with Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus pathogenesis and treating these infections with chemotherapy is very hazardous. On the contrary, some of the herbal products are very potent in curing these infections. The presence of antibacterial compounds in the higher plants is well established. Plants are continuously explored in search of new bioactive components with medicinal properties since past few decades. The current work is focused on analyzing the antimicrobial activity of few selected plant essences and scents against the test organism. This was done not only to identify the antimicrobial spectrum but also to authenticate ethno medical claims. Plant scents or plant essences are a mixture of essential oils and aroma compounds, fixatives and solvents. These are multifunctional in that many have antimicrobial action besides contributing to the fragrance and / or flavour of products in which they are used. The present study revealed that plant derived essences and scents could be used as an effective alternative to conquer microbial resistance against the existing drugs.

Keywords: Nosocomial infections, chemotherapy, herbal compounds, antimicrobials.
