|Abstract: ||Treatments for bovine mastitis based on antibiotictherapy are not always effective which may lead to
recovery of diseased animals, selection of resistant bacteria and the presence of antimicrobial residues in milk. In
this context the use of essential oils configures as an alternative to control mastitis pathogens in dairy cows because
they have antibacterial action against gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria and no diverse effects
on human health. The objective of this study was to determine, by the method of broth microdilution, the minimum inhibitory
concentration (MIC) of essential oils of Salvia scl
area, Eugenia caryophyllata, Thymus vulgaris, Cymbo
winterianus, Elettaria cardamomun, Cymbopogon flexuosus, Rosmarinus officinalis and Cinnamomum cassia
isolates of Staphylococcus aureus and Streptococcus
agalactiae associated with clinical and subclinica
l mastitis. C.
cassia, T. vulgaris, C. flexuosus, E. caryophyllata
, C. winterianus essential oils presented high anti
against both the pathogens. The S. sclarea and R. o
fficinalis oils did not show significant antibacter
against both the microorganisms. High synergism in
antimicrobial action against S. aureus and S. agalactiae was
observed in the combination of C. cassia, C. flexuosus and E. caryophyllata essential oils. Moderate synergism in antimicrobial effect was also observed in associations involving the C. cassia essential oil. The results indicated the
prospect of using essential oils to control bovine
mastitis caused by S. aureus and S. agalactiae.|
