Results: Results showed a significant difference to P= 0.05. The addition of Thyme and Nigella oil increased the transverse strength, and hardness of the denture base materials, no porosities, an increase in residual monomer elution at 1 st day, and both additives Nigella and Thyme oil act as antibacterial materials. Conclusions: The additives materials of pure natural oil of Nigella sativa and Thyme with concentration of 1.5% were recommended to give a proper properties, and as antimicrobial after curing of the acrylic resin denture base, but Thyme oil showed no effect on the color after curing in relation to Nigella sativa
