I’m sure Cinnamon oil would kill as much good bacteria as it would candida. Its a very harsh oil and would not recommend it internally. Cinnamon oil can cause extreme gut irritation/inflammation(internally). I have done a drop(diluted) in the past and I would never do it again. With a topical infection it would cause too much burning and inflammation. It might be worth a try for a oral rinse.
Do you have the study/article? Curious with how they did the study and the results with lavender?
I do cinnamon oil in the form of a breath-spray almost every day.
I am sure it is very diluted,
I couldnt imagine what it would be like to ingest cinnamon oil without proper dilution.
I believe it is responsible for eliminating my esophageal candida, which needs aggressive treatment .
I am not telling you to do it.! I am telling you what I have done. I have taken until four capsules of Cinnamon Bark Oil a day diluted in olive oil. I do the capsules myself using 3 drops of Cinnamon Bark Oil. I don’t use the Cinnamon Leaf Oil but the bark. The leaf is rich in Eugenol but the bark contains Cinamaldehyde that is a tremendous fungicidal substance. Kill candida like few products. By the way, I have made mixed capsules using Pogostemon Oil with Cinnamon Oil and Olive Oil.
Mechanisms, clinically curative effects, and antifungal activities of cinnamon oil and pogostemon oil complex against three species of Candida.

The anti-fungus mechanisms and curative effects of cinnamon oil and pogostemon oil complexes towards intestinal Candida infections were investigated. We measured the minimal inhibitory concentration (MIC) values of the complexes against Candida using proportionally-diluted test-tube medium, and examined the evolution of the morphology and structures of Candida albicans using scanning electronic microscopy (SEM) and transmission electronic microscopy (TEM). We found that the average MIC values of the complexes against the fungi were 0.064 mg/mL (cinnamon oil), 0.032 mg/mL (pogostemon oil) for Candida albicans, 0.129 mg/ mL (cinnamon oil), 0.064 mg/mL (pogostemon oil) for Candida tropicalis, and 0.129 mg/mL (cinnamon oil), 0.064 mg/mL (pogostemon oil), for Candida krusei. SEM examination over a 24-48 h period showed that the morphology of Candida albicans cells changed significantly. Irregular hollows appeared on the surfaces, inside organelles were destroyed and the cells burst after treatment. TEM examination over a 48 – 72 h period indicated that the cell walls were damaged, organelles were destroyed and most cytoplasms became empty bubbles. Sixty intestinal Candida-infected patients were treated with a capsule containing cinnamon and pogostemon oil. The curative ratio was 71.67% (43/60), and the improvement ratio was 28.33% (17/ 60), giving a total ratio of 100%. Thus, the cinnamon oil and pogostemon oil complexes had strong anti-fungus effects against Candida albicans, Candida tropicalis, and Candida krusei. They impacted the morphology and sub-micro structures of the fungus within 48 – 72 h, and eventually denatured and killed the cells. The complexes have also shown considerable curative effects to intestinal Candida infections.
