Abstract

The hydrodistilled essential oils of the dried fruits of F. halophila Peşmen, an endemic species growing near Salt Lake in Central Anatolia, were analyzed by GC and GC-MS systems; 27 and 24 compounds representing 92.1% and 79.8% of the essential oils were characterized, respectively. The main component of the essential oils was identified as β-phellandrene. The antibacterial and anticandidal effects of the essential oils were determined by using partly modified CLSI methods M7-A7 and M27-A2, respectively. The essential oils from two specimens showed weak to moderate inhibitory effects on the tested pathogenic bacteria (MIC, 125-2000 µg/ mL) and Candida panels (MIC, 156-1250 µg/mL).
