Materials and Methods: A vaginal sample of 100 women with vaginal candidiasis was collected in the tube containing 1cc of normal saline. These samples were cultured and 24 C. albicanses were identified which entered to the study. Then C. albicans was cultured in Sabouraud dextrose agar media which contained clotrimazole or extract of Salvia officinalis and MIC 50% and 90% were determined. Results: The Salvia officinalis inhibited the growth of C. albicanses. The mean concentration of Clotrimazole was 0.65±0.55 µg/ml in MIC 50% and 4.8 ± 3.59 µg/ml in MIC 90% . The mean concentration of Salvia officinalis was 24.04± 24.2 mg/ml in MIC 50% and 56.2± 28.4 mg/ml in MIC 90.
