Tea Tree Oil Yeast Infection Treatment
Tea Tree Oil, also called melaleuca oil, can be used a couple of different ways as a treatment against yeast infections.
You can gently melt 1 oz virgin coconut oil to liquid form and then add 4-5 drops tea tee oil to that, mix well and soak an organic cotton tampon in the oil. Insert tampon for 3 - 4 hours, and do this twice a day.
Below is a tea tree oil douche treatment I found on a product guide explaining the many uses for the oil.
It will be handy to have a small dropper bottle to store the concentrated mixture outlined below.
1 teaspoon of Tea Tree Oil
1 teaspoon of Isopropyl Alcohol (rubbing alcohol).
Combined they will turn a milky color.
Add 10 drops of this solution to 1 pint (2 cups) of pure water. Use distilled water, spring water from a trustable source, or tap water that has been boiled for 30 minutes and cooled to room temperature.
Use this douche solution once a day for up to a week.
You could replace the alcohol with raw apple cider vinegar for a double whammy against the yeast infection. I imagine the alcohol is added to help the oil disperse in the water. Maybe the vinegar could work instead, and we all know it's great for treating a yeast infection.
NOTE: If you're pregnant, consult with your doctor before beginning any treatment, even a natural treatment like this.
Make sure you are eating healthy, real foods, getting plenty to fresh vegetables, healthy fats and clean sources of protein. Avoid junk foods and refined flours. Reduce the sugar in your diet, this includes all forms of sugar (maple, honey, agave, molasses). Take a good probiotic too (and eat probiotic foods), to help restore natural balance in the body. Reduce your stress levels, taking some extra time to rest and rejuvenate your body. Warm baths are fine to help relax but only add pure essential oils and mineral salts, no perfumed bubble baths.
