Yeast infections can appear on any wet skin area or mucous being triggered by any factor that produces imbalances of bacterial flora in the body – for example, poor health, pregnancy, stress, antibiotics, contraceptive pills. Other causes include diabetes, hyperacidity, excessive consumption of refined carbohydrates and sweets.
Aromatherapy has proven to be very effective in getting rid of yeast infections, especially the vaginal ones. Combining some essential oils you can say goodbye to this itchy and smelly situation.
1. Pour 2 liters of warm water in a large basin and add 6 drops of tea tree oil and 2 drops of sweet thyme oil. Dip your genital area in the water and stay there, covered with a towel, for 10 minutes. Another remedy is to add in your bathing water 2 handfuls of dandelion leaves and stay in the water at least 10 minutes.
2. Mix 2 drops of sweet thyme oil with 4 drops of lavender oil and 2 teaspoons and half of cold pressed oil, such as cold almond oil or olive oil. Apply compresses in the genital area to relieve itching and burning sensation.
