Eucalyptus Honey – Research Article

The use of honey as a traditional remedy for microbial infections dates back to ancient times [1]. The aim of this study was to
evaluate the antibacterial activity of Eucalyptus honey oflibyan against multidrug resistant bacteria (MDR) by the method of agar
well diffusion. Different concentrations (50.75, 80 and 100%) of honey sample where checked for their antimicrobial activities, using
some medically important micro-organisms including Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Enterococcus faecalis, Acinetobacter
sp and Staphylococcus aureus. The mean inhibition zone produced by honey when applied to gram–negative bacteria and gram–positive bacteria was significantly higher than that of the antibiotic used.
