Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.

Here are 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 blend - 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 blend - 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's Alkalime powder. All it takes is about a teaspoon of Alkalime 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 reference book. Let me give you my personal opinion on some of the oils listed there (under vaginal yeast infections) getting any where NEAR the genitalia! Even diluted, I would not advocate the Purification oil blend, Bergamot, Mountain Savory, Peppermint, Spearmint, Thyme, Cinnamon, Clove or Juniper!

I have personally used the ones I mentioned above though and there was very little irritation and usually just a cooling, comfortable feeling!

I hope this helps you.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: candida — "As proven in vitro, essential oils [Eucalyptus, Melaleuca Alternifolia, Thyme, Lavender, Lemon, Lemongrass, Cinnamon, Grapefruit, Clove, Sandalwood, Peppermint, Sage] represent a cheap and effective antiseptic topical treatment option even for antibiotic-resistant strains [such] as MRSA and antimycotic [antifungal]-resistant Candida species."Link
2.Associated topics: candida — "Herbalists treat skin ailments, such as fungal infections (like candidiasis), wounds, eczema, and acne, with lavender oil. It is also used in a healing bath for joint and muscle pain. One study evaluating treatments for children with eczema found [that] it was therapeutic touch from the mother that improved symptoms; in other words, massage with and without essential oils (including lavender) both reduced the dry, scaly skin lesions. Another study found that lavender oil may improve pain control after surgery."Link
3.Associated topics: candida — "It is suggested that the in vivo effect of tea tree oil ointment in the therapy of fungal infections of the skin and mucous membranes as well as in the treatment of dandruff, a mild form of seborrheic dermatitis, may be at least partly due to an antifungal activity of tea tree oil."Link
