Aromatherapy for Vaginal Yeast Infections

Essential oils are extracted from flowers, bark, stems, leaves, roots of plants and can be used for oral or vaginal yeast infections. They are potent antibacterial, anti-fungal immune-stimulants!!

These blends are made more effective in conjunction with a healing diet such as B.E.D. I had a horrible yeast infection years ago which caused me to get vaginal yeast infections. It wasn’t until I started B.E.D. that I felt better – a ton better – and I swore then that I’d help others learn about this way of eating that is anti-fungal and probiotic rich.

If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have a chronic condition, please consult your care provider before using essential oils.

#1 Oil Blend

2 drops therapeutic-grade tea tree oil

2 drops therapeutic-grade spike lavender oil

2 drops therapeutic-grade bois de rose oil or myrrh oil

#2 Oil Blend

2 drops therapeutic-grade tea tree oil

2 drops therapeutic-grade oregano oil

Orally

Mix 2-4 drops in a cup of warm water, or an ounce of solubol.  Blends taken by mouth, can be especially helpful for systemic Candida.

Before using essential oils internally, learn of their powerful (at times unsafe) effects. Do not administer oils in larger doses than recommended. Many essential oils have more strength in a single drop than several ounces of that same herb in whole form.

Vaginally

  1.  Purchase a sterile silk or natural cosmetic sponge (check with your local pharmacist) to make a vaginal insert;

  2.  Tie a length of dental floss to the sponge, leaving a 4-inch “tail” for convenient retrieval;

  3.  Disperse the essential oil blend into a cup of warm, sterile water;

  4.  Immerse sponge and gently squeeze out any excess moisture – so it is not dripping;

  5.  Insert sponge into the vagina, leaving it overnight;

Note: Boluses, known as ovules or vaginal suppositories, can be used to treat infections in the vagina – click for an easy recipe.
