Aromatherapy for Vaginal Yeast Infections

Essential oils are extracted from flowers, bark, stems, leaves, roots, or another part of a plant. They can be used for oral or vaginal yeast infections because of their powerful antibacterial, anti-fungal, and immune-stimulant properties.

These blends can be made more effective if used in conjunction with The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D). I had systemic yeast infection years ago which caused chronic vaginal yeast infections and it wasn’t until I started B.E.D. that I felt better – tons better. I wish I’d found out about it earlier, so now I talk about this anti-fungal, probiotic diet when I can. It can help eliminate the underlying yeast overgrowth that may be causing your vaginal yeast infections.

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, educate yourself on their powerful and sometimes potentially unsafe effects. Do not administer oils in larger doses than what is 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.
