28 Comments for the Bacterial Vaginosis Home Remedy


Like so many women on here I am so thankful I found this site--what a relief to know I wasn't alone and see all the options I could try! After 3 rounds of Metro Gel and one round of oral antibiotics I had NO RELIEF. I was fed up with my doctor telling me BV isn't something to be worried about! I have been married for 11 years and aside from 4 or 5 easily treated yeast infections over the years I had never dealt with anything like this! My worst symptoms were itching and inflammation. I did not have a strong odor, but the Dr. confirmed it was BV. After antibiotics I tried many of the remedies and supplements on here. Some helped a little but did not cure me (garlic, probiotics inserted vaginally, Vit D, Vit C, multi vitamins...). Finally I found what's working for me. I will update if the BV comes back but after treatment, so far so good!
If you have access to very good quality essential oils, then please try this!

INFO: I recommend DoTerra oils (because that's what I used and I can't say if other oils are the same) The suggested oils for BV are Rosemary and Cinnamon. In addition Melaleuca (aka Tea Tree oil)and Lavender can help immensely with the itching and irritation. With that said, I had to wait a while to get the recommended oils and ended up using Oregano (always recommended for infections) instead and that worked for me.
OK here is the step by step of what I did:
1.Basic changes that are going to be life long: Cutting back on sugar (I'm not too self controlled in this dept but getting rid of BV is very motivating!)Added a multivitamin and good probiotic (Ultimate Flora 30billion) every day. No more soap for washing down there. Just rinsing with water! Lots of water with lemon.
2. 'coconut tampons' I froze organic,extra virgin coconut oil in those water bottle ice cube trays (they are the size of a tampon) added a drop each of melaleuca, lavender, and oregano oil (inserted these at bedtime for 5 days and wore a pad). This is very soothing and since I did it at night, it wasn't very messy. When I first woke up some drained into the pad, but after getting ready for the morning I was able to take it off and just wear my cotton undies alone for the day. (You smell great down there all day!)
3. This is what I think was key to really killing the infection: Lemon, Melaleuca, and Oregano Oil: 1-2 drops each in a veggie capsule 3x day for 10 days. I felt well by day 3.
4. I was able to be intimate with my husband by day 5 after months of abstaining. I did feel a bit irritated externally afterwards and (after a shower)just put a quarter size drop of coconut oil in my palm with a drop each of melaleuca, lavender and Oregano oil and applied externally-- instant soothing!

That's it. If I begin to feel symptoms return or very irritated after sex, I will probably pop in a 'coconut tampon' for the night. If that doesn't do it, I will do another round of oral oils and experiment with rosemary or cinnamon oils in my coconut tampons.

I am praying this helps someone and I am sure that the LORD led me to this resource! If you are discouraged: remember there are lots of different, natural things you can try and you are not alone in this struggle!

The veggie capsules did you insertions in the vagina are take orally ?


Please tell how you used the rosemary and cinnamon. Thanks


I have been looking for something like your post on BV. I have all those d?TERRA oils & am willing to give this protocol a try. Thank you so very much!


Worked perfectly

Research analyst

I love Doterra oils, I bought a non throw away ennima bag with hose, I poured about 1 cup peroxide and put about 8 drops Doterra Oregano and 6 drops On Guard then added 1 cup luke water. Shook the bag around to mix it up. And squeezed everything out as deep as I could go. I noticed instant results after the first use. I continued twice a day for a week or so just the make sure. Immediately it was vanished from my body.


Wouldn't oregano oil burn the skin?


I just read your blog...thank you very much for the advice. I'm trying it tonight!!!! However....instead of freezing the oil I just diluted the oil with refractionated coconut oil, used an organic tampon, soaked up the oils and inserted the tampon and I will be leaving it in overnight (I guess you could do it during the day as well.)

Fingers crossed it works and hopefully a little less messy than the frozen way!?


hi your post was amazing so i need to try for this without chemical BV that would help me so much so thank u for share :)


I am thankful that I found this site! I was diagnosed with BV , first time in my life , and the metro gel didn't work. I used rosemary, melaleuca, lavender, and oregano / 1 drop each added to coconut oil and applied externally. Instant soothing relief of all symptoms. I took a veggie cap with 1 drop each of oregano , melaleuca, and lemon , filled the remainder with fractionated coconut oil. I took this 3x day for 10 days and the infection was completely cleared! Thanks so much for posting this!!


Do you think virgin olive oil would be ok to sub for the coconut oil? I'm new to essential oils and don't want to mix up something that will be harmful. I've already made myself sick with peppermint oil...used to much and was nauseaus.
