The growing resistance and side effects to common antifungal drugs have promoted herbal essential oils as antifungal agents in recent years.

Peppermint Essential Oil (50ppm) 

Peppermint has long been known for its antifungal properties and it has been used successfully in attempts to battle Candida. Peppermint oil is effective in this regard because it can either reduce or completely eliminate, the nine enzymes that are essential for untreated yeast to grow.

Peppermint has a cytotoxic effect on these yeasts and will cause the fluidity of their membranes to collapse, essentially killing them. Peppermint is especially effective against oral thrush, which is also a common symptom of Candida albicans.

Rosemary Essential Oil (50ppm) 

This herb is known for both its antimicrobial and antioxidant properties. When it comes to skin health, rosemary’s natural oxidative defenses may help prevent free radicals from causing damage.

Geranium Essential Oil (50ppm) 

Geranium essential oil acts as anti-candidal agents. Given the amount of research done on geranium essential oil, it is sensible to conclude it is in fact a great Candida killer. With the variety of Candida species examined, you can be quite confident that this oil will perform well against rarer types of Candida. 

Lemon Essential Oil (50ppm) 

Lemons are antiviral, astringent, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory, and the most important one for this topic being antifungal. This antifungal property is most effective in your gut. There are several different acids inherent in lemons which are effective in breaking down food.

Thyme Essential Oil (50ppm) 

Multiple studies show that like clove, thyme essential oil helps prevent and destroy candida biofilms. This potent antifungal agent contains the main ingredient thymol, which fights a wide variety of pathogens.

Calendula Essential Oil (100ppm) 

 The antifungal assay results showed for the first time that the essential oil has good potential antifungal activity: it was effective against all 23 clinical fungi strains tested. In vitro study, it showed antifungal activity of calendula when compared to nystatin against different species of Candida including those causing oral candidiasis.

Calendula essential oils and extracts have been traditionally used for treatment of skin wounds, burns and sun burns. Its flowers and leaves are used in the treatment of poorly healing wounds, minor bruises, rashes and burns and also in the discomfort alleviation caused by stomach ulcers or inflammation of the oral and pharyngeal mucosa. Calendula oil has antimicrobial and antifugal activity.  These carotenoids have been found to have antioxidant, antimicrobial and antiproliferative properties.

Artemisia Annua (Mugwort) (50ppm) 

Artemisia annua L. is one of the famous traditional Chinese medicines commonly known as “Qing Hao.” It has been used in China for more than 2000 years to treat many disorders. In China, it is traditionally used for the treatment of fever (especially malaria) and hemorrhoids.

Artemisinin is the primary bioactive compound of A. annua. Galal et al. (2005) reported antifungal activity of A. annua (Artemisinin derivatives) against two opportunistic pathogens, Candida albicans, and Cryptococcus neoformans. The antibacterial properties of artemisinin have been tested on a wide range of bacteria, such as E. coliS. aureusP. aeruginosaMycobacterium intracellulareBacillus subtilisBacillus thuringiensis, and Salmonella sp.

(2014) also reported antimicrobial activity of the plant extracts against the periodontopathic microorganisms Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitansFusobacterium nucleatum subsp. animalis, Fusobacterium nucleatum subsp. polymorphum, and Prevotella intermedia.

Prunella Vulgaris – Self Heal (50ppm) 

The chloroform and hydroalcoholic leaves extracts of Prunella Vulgaris contains compounds with antimicrobial properties, which can be used as antimicrobial agents in pharmaceuticals and natural therapies of infectious diseases in humans, management of plant diseases and preservation and/ or extension of the shelf-life of raw and processed foods. The antioxidant activity of the Prunella Vulgaris extracts indicates that they have a protective effect against ROS and can therefore be used as a natural preservative ingredient in the food or pharmaceutical industry. The antioxidative activity observed in the in vitro cultured callus is particularly important, since the production of active principles can be provided throughout the year.

These plants have potential for development of antimicrobial agents against oral microorganisms, for use in tooth paste, mouth wash etc. for preventing and treating oral infections.
