Currently, despite significant advances in medical science, the emergence of new diseases and their spread, especially in industrialized and developing societies, this phenomenon represents a directly relationship with the lifestyle of the twentieth century. On the other hand maintaining and increasing the shelf life of food for many manufacturers consideration and often with the use of a chemical preservative to achieve this aim, but the use of preservatives and additives natural against pathogenic organisms instead of chemical compounds is preferable in terms of food security as well as the taste of different food products. Antibacterial effect of twenty kinds of spices and herbs were evaluated on the Staphylococcus epidermidis 1878 and Pseudomonas aeruginosa 1471 by agar and broth dilution method. In agar dilution method showed, Vanilla planifolia, Rosmarinus officinalis and Engenia caryophyllata have antibacterial effect on growth of both of bacteria; Myristica fragrans, Piper nigrum, Mentha piperita, Brassica and Thymus valgaris have antibacterial effect on growth of Staphylococcus epidermidis and Thymus valgaris, Mentha pulegium, Cinnaamomum ceylanicum and Myristica fragrans have antibacterial effect on growth of Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Except vanilla planifolia that completely inhibited the growth of both bacteria in the broth dilution method, in this method there are no inhibitory effects on other spices and herbs. Spices and herbs can have an inhibitory effect selectively on microorganisms. According to the results spices grouping to three groups can be highly effective, ineffective and low.
