A few things that I have done in the past for yeast infections:

MYRRH OIL! Very soothing! Just applied it topically. We have used oils in a vaginal insert. I just fill OO capsules and insert them then go to bed. Inserting a tampon to "keep the oils in" may be a good idea too.

My personal favorites are:

RC oil - very cooling and kills the itch IMMEDIATELY!
Melrose oil - same as above
Rosemary oil - we diluted this one 50/50 in a capsule.
Melaleuca Ericifolia - very soothing and gentle.
Gentle Baby oil - very cooling, a bit "tingly" but not painful.

I used oils for five days on, three days OFF then five more days. No more yeast infection. Women can also use PLAIN (no sugar) yogurt too as a vaginal insert, very cooling and comfortable. I have found TREMENDOUS relief douching with a MILD solution of Young living Alkalyme. All it takes is about a teaspoon of Alkalyme to a quart of water. I would also not hesitate to open some Acidophilus capsules and douche with them.

I just looked in the Essential Oils Desk Reference. Let me give you MY personal opinion on some of the oils listed there (under vaginal yeast infections) getting any where NEAR the genetalia! OUCH!!! Even diluted, I would not advocate Purification, Bergamot, Mountain Savory, PEPPERMINT, SPEARMINT, THYME, Cinnamon, CLOVE, or Juniper! YOUCH!!! THAT section must have been written by a MAN, for SURE!! *grinning!*

I HAVE personally used the ones I mentioned above though and there was VERY LITTLE irritation, and usually, just a cooling, comfortable feeling!

Hope this helps.
