Professor Yiannis Samaras and Dr Effimia Eriotou, from Technological Educational Institute of Ionian Islands, Greece, presented their research about essential oils as cheaper and effective alternative to kill hospital superbugs in Society for General Microbiology’s spring meeting in Edinburgh that.

Superbugs are drug-resistant bacteria.  The researchers tested the antimicrobial activities of eight different plant essential oils, and they found that thyme essential oil is the most effective, followed by cinnamon.  Thyme essential oil was able to kill almost all bacteria, in particular Staphylococcus species, within an hour time.  Infection caused by drug-resistant bacteria, such as meticillin-resistant Straphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is hard to treat.
