Psidium guajava L. is native plant of Tropical America. The indigenous people use it for various human ailments like wounds, bowels and cholera. In Mexico the water, alcohol, and chloroform extracts from the leaves of Guava were affective against Staphylococcus aureus, because of its essential oils that contains tannins, flavonoids, cineol, and triterpenes (Sanches, N. R. et al. 2005). Staphylococcus aureus bacteria is one of the causes of human diseases. It is one of the cause of infections such as abscesses (boils), furuncles, and cellulitis.
