|Klebsiella pneumoniae (K. pneumonia), Staphylococcus aureus, Candida albicans and Candida tropicalis are opportunistic microbes associated with certain diseases such as diabetes, deep wounds and immunodeficiency. Those microbes have evolved their resistance to antibiotics in recent years. The aim of this study is to prepare oil extracts from the dried roots of Indian Costus and sea-Qust and test that oil's effectiveness on some bacteria and yeast. The results have recorded significantly high antimicrobial activity against K. pneumonia and C. tropicalis during treatment with Indian Costus oil, the sea-Qust oil was also very effective on C. albicans and S. aureus. Because the cell wall (SEM) of C. albicans was rough and wrinkled. Therefore, the budding of yeast became less with a treatment of Indian Costus oil. Thus, this result demonstrates that oil extract of Costustype plants is effective that their oil extract could be considered as a natural alternative to antibiotics.|
