Lemongrass (Cymbopogon citratus Stapf) has been used in cooking and in many traditional medicines; the essential oil contains citral as a major constituent. This study evaluated the antimicrobial activity of lemongrass oil against Staphylococcus aureous, the oil was then incorporated into novel herbal gel. The formulated herbal gel were kept at room temperature (28º-30ºC) and under accelerated condition (45ºC). Selection of an appropriate formula was based on antimicrobial activity, the physical appearance, the chemical properties and stability of the formula. Two percent lemongrass oil provided the required qualities necessary for commercial use.
