Abstract
ANTIDANDRUFF ACTIVITY OF THE ESSENTIAL OILS

Pankaj Saxena and Richa Sharma*

ABSTRACT

Potential inhibitory effect of Curcuma longa (turmeric), Mentha piperita (peppermint), Pinus sylvestris (pine) and Cinnamomum verum (cinnamon) oils alone against the yeast like fungus, M. furfur which causes dandruff have been studied by using Disc diffusion method. The diameter of the inhibition zone of the Curcuma longa (45 mm), Mentha piperita (17 mm), Pinus sylvestris (16 mm) and Cinnamomum verum (15 mm) was greater than the inhibition zone of the standard antibiotic (Clotrimazole) 13mm respectively. These judgments suggest that all of these essential oils can be used as an herbal medicine for the treatment of Dandruff.

Keywords: Curcuma longa, Mentha piperita, Pinus sylvestris, Cinnamomum verum, M. furfur, Clotrimazole etc.
