Escherichia coli is a Gram-negative, non-sporulating facultative anaerobe found in water and soil and is a normal flora in gastrointestinal tract of human, warm-blooded animals and reptiles. E. coli strains are categorized into six pathotypes caused different syndromes and shows high rate of resistance to different antibiotics. The aim of this study was to identify the most important native medicinal plants of world, effective on E. coli. All required information was obtained by searching keywords such as E.coli, medicinal plant extracts or essential oils in published articles in authentic scientific databases such as Science Direct, Wiley-blackwell, Springer, Google scholar, Scientific Information Database (SID) and Magiran. According to the literature review, our results showed 44 different native medicinal plants were effective against E.coli and used to colibacillosis treatment traditionally in all over the world. The results of this review indicated that some of the most important plants that have anti-E.coli effect include Rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary), Syzygium aromaticum (clove), Thymus vulgaris (Thyme), Zataria multiflora (Avishane shirazi), Salvia officinalis (Sage), Cymbopogon martini (Palmarosa), Aloysia triphylla (Lemon beebrush), Origanum vulgare (Oregano), Satureja cuneifolia (wild savory), Pluchea indica (Indian camphorweed), Eucalyptus tereticornis (Forest Red Gum), Aloe vera (Aloe) and Foeniculum vulgare (Fennel). An overview on phytochemical analysis has shown that bioactive compounds of medicinal plants with their antioxidant and antimicrobial properties are good alternative for synthetic drugs in food and drug industry and in other word to treatment microbial diseases in medicine. © 2017, Pharmainfo Publications.
