Oral thrush or oral candidiasis (infection by and accumulation of yeasts, particularly Candida albicans, on the lining of your mouth) is a common condition, especially among people with a compromised immune system. A recent laboratory study confirmed that lemongrass essential oil kills yeasts associated with oral thrush and also improves the activity of nystatin against these yeasts.

Add one drop of lemongrass to your mouthwash to cleanse the oral cavity.
