Abstract: The chemical composition and the antimicrobial activity of essential oil from O. applii e O. vulgare were studied against the bacteria Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Salmonella choterasuis, Rhodococcus equi, Micrococcus luteus, Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, Bacillus subtilis, S. epidermides, Streptococcus faecium e Enterococcus faecium. The essential oil was analyzed by Gas Chromatography Mass Spectroscopy (GC-MS). Antimicrobial activity was evaluated by bioautography with subsequent MIC (Minimal Inhibitory Concentration) determination. The main constituents of O. vulgare e O. applii essential oil was identified (%): p-cimeno, 4,27 and 9,37, a-terpinoleno, 9,13 and 30,23, linalol, 6,35 and 8,75; terpin-4-ol, 24,96 and 3,56 and carvacrol, 17,96 and 11,23, respectively. The essential oil of both Origanum species presented strong activity against Streptococcus faecium and moderate activity against S. choterasuis, S. aureus and B. subtilis.
