Fundação de Amparo à Pesquisa do Estado de São Paulo (FAPESP); Conselho Nacional de Desenvolvimento Científico e Tecnológico (CNPq); Coordenação de Aperfeiçoamento de Pessoal de Nível Superior (CAPES); The aim of this study is to evaluate the in vitro antimicrobial activity of essential oils of Ocimum basilicum (basil), Thymus vulgaris (thyme) and Cinnamomum cassia (Chinese cinnamon) against strains of Streptococcus mutans (ATCC 25175) and Staphylococcus aureus (ATCC 25923). The antibacterial activity of the essential oils was determined by Minimum Inhibitory Concentration (MIC) and Minimum Bactericidal Concentration (MBC). The MIC was obtained by the microdilution technique using 96-well microplates, in which we inserted: 100µL of Brain Heart Infusion broth at double concentration, 100µL of the dilution of the essential oils and 10µL of bacterial suspension (1.5 x 10(6) organisms / mL). The products were diluted from the initial concentration of 8% up to 0.0625%. The MIC corresponded to the last dilution in which there was no presence of bacteria or turbidity in the culture medium. The MBC was obtained by seeding, in Mueller-Hinton agar, 10µL aliquots of dilutions corresponding to the MIC and the two immediately preceding ones (2MIC and 4MIC). The plates were incubated at 37°C in a bacteriological incubator for 24 hours. The tests were performed in triplicate...
