Objectives: This research was aimed at analyzing the effect of propolis extract and candies on Candida albicans growth. Methods: After C. albicans was exposed to propolis extract and candies, the minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) and minimum bactericidal concentration (MBC) were determined with spectrophotometry, and post-exposure colonies of C. albicans were counted. Results: The MIC of propolis extract against C. albicans was determined to be 10% and MBC to be 15%. Furthermore, C. albicans colonies were decreased after propolis extract and candies exposure. Conclusions: Propolis extract and candies were effective to inhibit C. albicans growth.
