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.


I had a yeast infection break out on a Monday, the first day of a 5-day camping trip. My family and I were too far away from a store to drive to buy some Monistat-7, which is what I normally used to get rid of these annoying infections! Thankfully, I brought all my Young Living essential oils with me and wanted to treat this naturally using them instead of the M-7!

I got out my essential oils reference book and read the suggestion of internally taking Oregano oil, which I did 3 times a day (6-7 drops in a gelatin capsule). I also chose to dilute about 3 drops of the Purification oil blend in about half a teaspoon of coconut oil to apply topically.

After only the first day, I noticed that the discomfort of itching I had the previous day had significantly gone down and, by day 3, I had NO discomfort at all!

I was also very careful to steer away from carbohydrates and sugar in my diet. I was amazed! The oils will be my first "go-to" if I ever experience another infection!

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
