The essential oils from the leaf of E. globulus showed varying degrees of antibacterial activity against two clinical isolates. From the above experiment, it can be inferred that extract suggests significant growth-inhibiting effects on Gram-positive (E. coli) and Gram-negative bacteria (S. aureus). The efficacy of leaf oil of E. globulus against these microorganisms may provide a scientific ground for the application of the herb in the prevention and treatment of bacterial infections caused by various pathogenic bacteria such as Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli, which have developed resistance to antibiotics.
