Abstract Staphylococcus aureus is a Gram-positive, non-moving cocci found in grape-like clusters in the upper respiratory tract and skin. It is a member of the Bacillota and can grow without oxygen. Although it acts commensally, it can also become an opportunistic pathogen, causing skin infections, respiratory infections, and food poisoning. In 1880, Scottish surgeon Alexander Ogston discovered that Staphylococcus can cause wound infections after observing bacteria in pus from surgical abscesses. S. aureus is a common bacteria that can be found on the skin of the host, but most of its carriage occurs through the nasal passages and ears. The purpose of this study is to assess the antibacterial efficacy of the homoeopathic remedies Hamamelis virginica, Myristica sebifera, and Mercurius iodatus ruber against Staphylococcus aureus.As a result, the Agar Well-Diffusion assay is employed to screen the bacteria at 30C, 200C, and 1M potencies. Findings: Myristica sebifera 30C(11) mm, 200C (9 ) mm, 1M (10) mm; Mercurius iodatus ruber 30C (6 ) mm, 200C ( 8 ) mm, 1M ( 7) mm; Hamamelis virginica 30C(3 ) mm, 200C( 4) mm, 1M ( 5) mm; Mercurius sebifera in 1M showed maximum Growth inhibitory zone (GIZ) against Staphylococcus aureus following comparison with Vehicle control (dispensing alcohol or ethanol 90%) and Positive control (Amoxyclavatum).
