Abstract: 

Helichrysum arenarium L. is a perennial herbaceous plant that belongs to asteraceae family and traditionally used to treat various diseases in many countries. In this study, the essential oil from the aerial parts of the H. arenarium L. was extracted with hydro-distillation using a clevenger approach and then its antimicrobial effects was studied on the growth of two yeasts species, Candida albicans and Saccharomyces cereviciae, using micro-dilution method at ten different concentrations. The results of this study indicated that the essential oil of H. arenarium had significant effects on reducing and eliminating tested yeasts (P<0.05) but C. albicans with MIC=195.31 and MFC=3125  mg/ml indicated more resistant than S.cereviciae so that growth of S. cereviciae in all concentrations was lower than that of the C. albicans. The results revealed that the essential oil of H. arenarium had a significant anti yeast activity (P<0.05); therefore, it can be used as an antifungal agent in the food and pharmaceutical industries.
