New formula of Rhuscoriaria L. and peppermint water extract was prepared. The formula tested against five common pathogenic microorganisms (Str. Mutants, Staph.aureus, E. coli, Ps. aeruginosa, and Candida) as in vitro test, this study found that the largest MIC was observed to be against Staph.aureus. The new formula was also depended in prevention of vaginal infection for 22 donor patients compared with 5 cases with infected vagina but used medications as positive control and another 5 cases healthy individual (healthy vagina) and not get treatment as a negative control. The results documented that the natural product formula is better than the commercial antimicrobials in sense of shorter time of treatment, no side effect, and less cost.
