POTENSI EKSTRAK DAUN KEMANGI (Ocimum sanctum L.) SEBAGAI ANTIBAKTERI TERHADAP Staphylococcus aureus ATCC 25923
Antibacterial compounds are compounds that can inhibit bacterial growth. The components contained in the basil leaf extract have the potential to be developed as a source of antibacterial active ingredients. Basil leaves are a plant that has antibacterial potential. This study aims to test the antibacterial activity of the basil leaf extract (Ocimum sanctum L.) with various concentrations of 20%, 40%, 60%, 80%, and 100% against Staphylococcus aureus ATCC 25923. Antibacterial activity test using the well diffusion method. The results showed that basil leaf extract (Ocimum sanctum L.) concentrations of 20%, 40%, 60%, 80%, and 100% could inhibit the growth of Staphylococcus aureus ATCC 25923. The concentration of basil leaf extract was 100% effective as an antibacterial against Staphylococcus aureus bacteria. ATCC 25923 of 12.60 mm.
