Abstract

Antibacterial activity of aqueous decoctions of Clove (Syzygium aromaticum), Star anise (Illicium vernum), Asafoetida (Ferula asafoetida), Holy basil (Ocmium sanctum), Ginger (Zingiber officinale), Nutmeg (Myristica fragrans), Garlic (Allium sativa), Bay leaf (Laurus nobilis), Turmeric (Curcuma longa), were investigated against Staphylococcus aureus isolated from college ground soil of apparently. Screening of antibacterial activity was performed using disc diffusion method (Kirby- Bauer method) and cup-plate method (Heatley`s original cylinder-plate method). The highest antibacterial potential was observed from the aqueous decoction of Star anise which inhibited the tested microorganisms than aqueous decoctions of Clove> Asafoetida > Holy basil > Ginger> Nutmeg > Garlic > Bay leaf = Turmeric.
