Application of orange essential oil as an antistaphylococcal agent in a dressing model was conducted in a 2012 study. The study looked at the effect of orange essential oil on strains of Staphylococcus aureus that are resistant to antibiotics. The study found that when added to infected human cells in culture, low concentrations of orange essential oil killed the bacteria without harming the cultured cells. The study demonstrated the anti-staphylococcal effects of sweet orange oil, i.e. inhibition and bactericidal effects on MRSA.
In 2018 a screening of the antifungal activity of 12 essential oils, including orange oil, against eight pathogenic fungi of vegetables and mushroom was conducted. The influence of five doses of each essential oil was tested against Botrytis cinerea, Sclerotinia sclerotiorum, Fusarium oxysporum, Phytophthora parasitica, Pythium aphanidermatum, Alternaria brassicae, Cladobotryum mycophilum and Trichoderma aggressivum f.sp. europaeum. All essential oils (EOs) analysed showed antifungal activity against the test pathogens. The study concluded, further research is warranted into the practical use of essential oils for control of myco- and phytopathogens in horticulture for possible future application of the essential oils as alternative antifungal agents.
