Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

My dentist prescribed penicillin for my tooth infection, and I started taking it immediately. Of course, in about a day and a half, the vaginal yeast infection ensued. I stopped taking the antibiotic immediately and went on an increased dose of probiotics (Life 5 is great!). However, the skin in that area was very uncomfortable, and at times embarrassingly so.

Using Higley's reference book, I quickly formulated a blend of Myrrh - several drops, Thieves - a few drops, Melaleuca, and Oregano (sparingly!) for their anti-fungal properties, and added a few drops of Peppermint to control the itching.

I diluted them in a carrier oil and adjusted the dilution as needed. I applied about a 1/4 teaspoon 3-4 times a day, or as needed. It certainly helped the discomfort to decrease and in less than a week to be gone completely.
