    Aim: To compare and evaluate the antimicrobial activity of neem, cumin, and clove oil on various pathogens. Introduction: An antimicrobial is an agent that kills microorganisms or stops their growth. Antimicrobial medicines can be grouped according to the microorganisms they act primarily against. Antibacterials are used to treat bacterial infections. The drug toxicity to humans and other animals from antibacterials is generally considered low. As a consequence of widespread and injudicious use of antibacterials, there has been an accelerated emergence of antibiotic-resistant pathogens, resulting in a serious threat to global public health. Materials and Methods: The oil samples were obtained commercially and the anti- microbial effect is determined by using well diffusion method under various concentrations of the samples. The positive and negative control were added. The results were obtained and statistically analysed. Results: Clove oil is an important source of compounds having antimicrobial, antioxidant, anti-tumour, anti-fungal, anti- inflammatory and antiviral properties. The result indicated that using various parts of the clove have beneficial effect in controlling the oral pathogens than neem and cumin oil
