Staphylococcus epidermidis is a gram-positive bacterium that can cause infections in individuals with weakened immune systems. Given its pathogenic potential and increasing resistance to traditional antibiotics, there is an urgent need to explore alternative antibacterial agents. This study assesses the effectiveness of different J. sambac flower essential oil extract concentrations against S. epidermidis at De La Salle UniversityAngelo King Medical Research Center using experimental observation as a data collection method. The varying J. sambac flower essential oil extract concentrations exhibit results that show its incapability in showing antibacterial properties against S. epidermidis, therefore proving that J. sambac flower essential oil at these concentrations is not ideal for the said bacterial infections.
