excerpt-

Cinnamon And Candida

A Chinese study in 2012 looked at the effect of cinnamon oil on Candida albicans both in the laboratory and in patients suffering from intestinal Candida. The results were dramatic.

When the researchers examined the Candida cells after they were treated with cinnamon oil, they noted that “Irregular hollows appeared on the surfaces, inside organelles were destroyed, and the cells burst after treatment.”


In the second part of their study they took 60 patients infected with intestinal Candida. The patients were suffering from chronic digestive problems, had already been treated with antibiotics, and had eventually been diagnosed with Candida using a stool test.

They were treated with a capsule containing both cinnamon oil and pogostemon oil (an Asian herb). After 14 days of treatment, 72% of the patients were found to have no Candida at all in their stool, and the remaining 28% had seen a significant reduction.


Another study in 2011 looked at the use of cinnamon oil in hospitals. Candida infection can be extremely dangerous among those with severely weakened immune systems, and over the past few decades it has become increasingly common in hospitals.

This study looked at the effectiveness of sixteen different essential oils against another type of Candida yeast, and found that, “The most active essential oil was cinnamon oil, which showed anticandidal activity.”

Here's a link to the study:

They actually used cinnamon & pogostemon oil - which is patchouli oil.

An interesting combination! The study says it worked better than Fluconazole. I'm not sure what specific variety of cinnamon they used. It says - cassia twig and Chinese cinnamon - in the study.

I bought some cinnamon oil at the supermarket & it says cinnamon "leaf" (in tiny letters). I thought it was the bark. I don't think it's as potent as the bark.

I would suggest using only high quality oils .. In my opinion the best are from Young Living. doTerra is OK too.

I'm now allergic to cinnamon .. just giving you a heads up on the oils.

Thanks. Too bad about the allergy. You might want to try patchouli...?

DoTerra cinnamon oil is $28.00 for 5 mL & Living Young is $31.58. It's a bit pricey. It's a fairly common spice so I will go with a cheaper brand. Piping Rock is $1.79 for 15 mL.

I think this brand is comparable to the more expensive ones like DoTerra & LY-

Eden's Garden oils are very good quality & alot less expensive. The cinnamon is $8.95.

I got the oil from the supermarket because I didn't want to wait for shipping.

Even the spice can burn badly for those who have irritated mouth, esophagus, GI tissue. So whether oil or the powder spice there are enteric coated capsules available from several brands.

Same with mint, oregano and some other strong plant oils. Best in enteric coated capsules.

Nanoparticle-Stabilized Capsules for the Treatment of Bacterial Biofilms.

. . . Abstract

Bacterial biofilms are widely associated with persistent infections. High resistance to conventional antibiotics and prevalent virulence makes eliminating these bacterial communities challenging therapeutic targets. . . .

. . . The peppermint oil and cinnamaldehyde combination that comprises the core of the capsules act as potent antimicrobial agents. . . .
