Abstract:

The use of plant extracts and especially essential oils is a traditional medicine method that is many centuries and even millenniums old. We summarized and analyzed the effects of some essential oils or their extracts on Candida fungal strains and the methods used in testing antifungal in laboratories. The use of such essential oils in laboratory experiments showed considerable therapeutic results and antifungal effects on different Candida strains. The modern medicine, reconsider it in order to use it as an alternative to the antimycotic medication in fungal infections. The newest research demonstrated that these natural origin substances can be used with success in many cases of fungal infections.


Keywords: essential oils, fungal infections, Candida species, natural origin antifungal.
