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.
