Natural cures include:
- Tea tree oil
- Oil of Oregano
- Coconut oil
- Apple Cider Vinegar
Tea Tree Oil
Tea tree oil contains compounds called terpenoids, which act as an antifungal. It has been shown to kill Candida, the yeast responsible for vaginal infection, but there has not been enough research yet to be certain of its effectiveness in treating yeast infections.
Tea tree oil can be used in a douche (20 drops to 8 ounces of water) or applied directly to a tampon and inserted into the vagina.
Oil of Oregano
Oregano for yeast infections is a medically verified yeast and fungi killer.
You can use oregano internally and externally.
Topically, you can rub a few drops of it on the affected area. For use on the genitals, always dilute it. You can take one drop of this oil and mix it with a teaspoon of coconut oil or olive oil. It works just fine too.
Orally, you can take 2 drops of it. You should increase the dosage by one drop a day until you reach five drops. Do this until two days after the symptoms disappear for good measure.
Coconut oil is high in both lauric acid and caprylic acid, which both have antiviral, antimicrobial and antifungal properties.
Apple Cider vinegar
To douche with apple cider vinegar, add two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar to 8 ounces of filtered water.
