7. Cinnamon


Cinnamon is another effective home remedy to fight this oral yeast infection. Its powerful antiparasitic and antifungal properties can control the growth of candida albicans.

According to a 2012 study published in the Journal of Traditional Chinese Medicine, the curative effects and antifungal activities of cinnamon oil have a positive impact against candida albicans.

  • Drink 1 to 2 cups of cinnamon tea daily. To make the tea, boil ½ teaspoon of cinnamon powder or a small piece of cinnamon stick in 1½ cups of water for 5 minutes. Strain and drink it. You can also add a little lemon juice in it.
  • Dilute a few drops of cinnamon oil in 1 tablespoon of extra-virgin olive oil or any carrier. Apply this oil on the white patches caused by oral thrush. Leave it on 10 to 15 minutes and then rinse it off. Do this once daily for a few days.

Note: Pregnant women should avoid cinnamon.


8. Garlic


Garlic is another effective treatment for reducing the thrush infection. Its antifungal property helps kill yeast in your mouth and it even gives your immune system a boost.

In a 2005 study published in the Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy journal, results appeared promising for the antifungal activity of fresh garlic extract against candida albicans.

  • Chew 2 or 3 raw garlic cloves on a regular basis to fight the infection. Alternatively, take garlic capsules or tablets, after consulting your doctor.
  • Also, apply garlic oil on the affected area a few times daily.

  1. I’ve recently discover that taking a folic acid improves oral thrush pretty quickly. I suffered with it for months, it just kept coming back no matter what I tried. I read an article on another matter and decided to take folic acid and then an iron pill an hour after and within days my oral thrush was gone and hasn’t returned. I can’t believe it

  2. The salt seems to help somewhat, but my tongue feels irritated. How do I know if the irritation is from the salt or from the oral thrush I got after using a steroid inhaler. I may try the baking soda remedy as an alternate for a while and see what happens. I’m also drinking apple cider vinegar in water, with and sometimes without the raw honey.

  3. I tried salt methods first. It had a noticeable effect and reduced the symptoms a bit but tasted awful and made my mouth feel dry, and if I understand correctly, good flow of saliva is beneficial for recovery. Go in trial was garlic chewing (only 1/3 of a glove at a time) and it seemed to work the best, but the smell and pain of it was too bad. I did not think coconut oil would have such a good effect, but it was pleasant to use and seemed to finally get things back in balance in my mouth. I rinsed my mouth with oil-water mixture before and after taking my asthma medicine. I also ate teaspoonfuls twice a day. I could definitely try garlic and coconut oil again if the thrush comes back. I cut down my asthma prescription by half, which probably helped. Now I wonder if I could take the full dosage with continuous use of coconut oil…

  4. All options mentioned seem reasonable. I went to the dentist a month ago because I have some bleeding and some mouth lessions and he told I have Paradontitis. Two weeks later, my sympthomes went worse. So, I researched in the internet and I found I may have oral candidiasis. Went to the doctor (took another week waiting) and indeed it is that. He was furious for the wrong diagnosis by the dentist. I was taking Nystatin because my infection was getting really BAD, and for a week I started to use amphotericin B. I spitted blood out of my throat, so bad was the infection. Whatever you do, don’t let this get too far. If it is too late, must use a strong medicine, because it can be very damaging to your health, besides that it is already incredibly painful. Particularly at night you get worse attacks from the fungi.

  5. I started the apple cider vinegar and salt rinse and immediately noticed soothing on my poor, raw mouth! I believe that this will clear this up for me. For those that try this, make sure that you use the correct vinegar. I used Braggs organic apple cider vinegar with the mother and it really did not burn at all. I was shocked that salt and vinegar soothed instead of burned! Thanks for these remedies!

  6. How come no one mentioned Hydrogen Peroxide? this is supposed to be the best remedy, I did well rinsing twice a day with 3% peroxide swishing it around my mouth for 5 minutes each time,one week thrush is gone. I only had one white lesion.

  7. Got bad dose oral thrush following rather a large amount of antibiotics taken for surgery followed by complications. Gone through the over the counter stuff, Daktarin, not done any good. Just been prescribed Nystatin which I started on yesterday. I am doubtful about this one. I will try the salt as well at the same time. The thing with the Gel’s is that I can’t get them right to the back of my mouth and I am concerned it’s spreading down to my throat which is still healing from the tubes from the op. Man this is miserable.

  8. I swished the coconut oil around for five minutes then swish the salt around immediately I saw a change. This remedy kill the yeast.

  9. Gargling 50/50 water and hydrogen peroxide mixture gave me immediate pain relief when I had severe tongue and throat oral throat.

  10. How much cider vinegar and salt should I use and how often, I use seretide inhaler and get thrush recurring even after rincing
