The aim of this work was to study the antimicrobial activity of essential oil from the inflorescences of lavender angustifolia. Antimicrobial activity was determined by the sensitivity of test cultures by diffusion in a solid nutrient medium. Diameter of the zone of inhibition of bacterial growth in mm - St. aureus - 28.0, St. epidermidis 26.0, E. coli 30.0, C. albicans 22.0, Bacillus subtilis 33.0. Based on the above, we can conclude that the essential oil from the inflorescences of narrow-leaved lavender has a pronounced antimicrobial effect against gram-positive cocci, bacilli and yeast-like fungi of the genus Candida, it can be recommended for the manufacture of wound healing medicines.
