6 Comments for the Yeast Infections Home Remedy

I had a yeast infection for 3 solid years. I tried all these other remedies and more, including several crazy sugarless yeastless diets and multiple courses of every medication the doctor could get me; monistat, diflucan, etc. Nothing helped for more than a week or so. Finally I found something that ended my battle. A couple of drops of tea tree oil mixed with about 4 tablespoons of olive oil. The tea tree oil is antifungal, and the olive oil fosters growth of good bacteria. Don't use too much tea tree oil though, or it will burn. If you have a lot of yeast built up, you need to get it out; my method was to coat my finger with the oil mixture, reach up in there, scoop out the white stuff, and wipe it on a paper towel (obviously, be sure your finger is clean and the nail clipped) Then coat your finger again and repeat as needed, trying to gently scour the whole surface of your vagina including the area around the cervix. This kind of hurts if you have a bad infection, but trust me, it's worth it. Every time I start getting a little itchy, I just put some of my oil mixture in there. I've now been yeast-free for about four years. The other great thing about this is that it's way less messy and gross than topical yogurt or garlic, and way cheaper than prescription. Tea tree oil smells clean and medicinal, like pine or something. It truly changed my life.

May I add that tea tree oil on your vulva feels AWESOME? I was using it even before I knew it would help with yeast infections! It is very tingly, and it is a common ingredient in 'stimulating creams.' It is also great for black heads!

I coat a tampon with olive oil and then put about 10-15 drops of tea tree oil all over it and then insert it and leave it for 5-6 hours during the day or overnight. I unfortunately get recurrent yeast infections for many years now and when I first feel one coming on I use this method. I also wash myself with hydrogen peroxide diluted with water after sex and that seems to work well at preventing them too.

GIRLFRIEND, I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM, FOR YEARS!!!
Try Vitacost.com. They are an online health food store that sells everything for a very reasonable price.
Tea tree oil and garlic oil works! Very cheap by the way, cheaper than monistat.
Yogurt, honey, and, vinigar salt douches DO NOT WORK.
Good luck.
