Abstract Staphylococcus Aureus is an extremely potent Gram Positive bacteria. It has recently gained resistance to many drugs previously used against it. Researchers have found that theoretically, aromatherapy may be a feasible and effective cure for Staph A infections. However, it has never been experimentally proven. The purpose of my experiment is to test this hypothesis, and discover the effects of aromatherapy on Staph A cultures.
