Essential oils (EOs) are complex mixtures of volatile compounds with different biological properties. Essential oils and their ability to resist the production of biofilms by pathogenic microorganisms have been linked to antimicrobial activity. After adherence of these pathogenic microorganisms to surfaces leads primarily to antibiotic resistance, it is vital to look for compounds or methodologies with this capacity. Essential oils have gained a lot of attention in recent years due to studies of their anti-bacterial, antiviral, anti-fungal, and insecticidal properties. Due to their low toxicity, biocompatibility, biodegradability, capability to precisely target tissue, and initial structures that enable various therapeutics to be attached, MNPs (magnetite nanoparticles) are one kind of nanocarrier that could be used to deliver EOs for antimicrobial therapies effectively.
