In this study, the antimicrobial activity of Cuminum cyminum and caraway essential oil on Bacillus cereus, which is one of the causes of food poisoning, At 10 ° C in sterilized milk was investigated. The Bacillus cereus bacterium, purchased in the form of liofilization, was recovered in a nutritious meal culture medium. Subsequently, 103 bacteria per cc in milk were selected and into utensil milk those were added to autoclaved before that time. Then,concentrations of 0, 0.03, 0.06, 0.1, 0.2, 1 and 2 percent of essential oil of cuminum cyminum plant and 0, 0.03, 0.06, 0.1, 0.2, 1, 1.5 and 2 percent of the essential oil of the caraway plant, which had been extracted by the Clevenger device, was added to the sterilized milk container. The incubation was performed at the test temperature and then the study of bacterial condition was done on days 0, 1, 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18 and 21 by spread plate count.
