Presenting our Herbal Recipe for Yeast Infection Relief

Things you’ll need:

  • 2 drops of Lavender essential oil
  • 2 drops of Tea Tree essential oil
  • 1 tsp of organic plain yoghurt with no flavouring and no added sugar
  • 2 tsp of unrefined organic coconut oil
  • Cotton tampon – unbleached and organic if possible
  • Pad to wear overnight

What to do:

  • Mix essential oils into the coconut oil.
  • Pour the yoghurt into the oil and mix well.
  • Roll the tampon in the mixture and let it absorb the mix.
  • Prepare for bed, inserting the tampon into your vagina. Use the overnight pad to absorb any discharge.
  • Take out first thing in the morning and clean out your vagina in the shower.
  • Repeat every night for a week.

This mix has a combination of things that will help restore the balance of your vaginal microbiome – which is a significant factor in women who get reoccurring yeast infections.

It will help to eliminate the yeast infection, soothe the irritated skin, promote healing and start to correct the imbalance in the microflora.

This herbal recipe for yeast infection relief is taken from a recipe in ‘Family First Aid, Medicine Cabinet & DIY Recipe Guide’ by Eric Zielinski.
