Possibly the Most Effective Yeast Infection Treatment Ever

Possibly the Most Effective Yeast Infection Treatment Ever

An easy, at-home remedy for yeast infections.

Yeast infections are the worst! Most women have had at least one during their life. This simple oil concoction can help.

Note: using essential oils internally is a controversial topic. With that in mind, I’m not advising you on what to do. I’m simply telling you what worked for me when I was desperate. Talk to a trusted healthcare professional about your options! 

Yeast overgrowth is commonly due to an imbalance of good and bad bacteria. Coconut oil, lavender oil, and tea tree oil are beneficial antifungal and antibacterial oils, so I decided to make a concoction and see how it worked. It was amazing! Instant relief.  I’ve tried a few other natural treatments before, like eliminating sugar, taking probiotics, applying yogurt or garlic for their anti-yeast properties, but this one is by far the best and most effective in my opinion.

I used:

I used high quality oils (no additives, fillers, fragrances — I prefer Aroma Foundry for affordable quality oils). I tested each of these oils on my skin first to make sure I didn’t have a reaction. Tea tree oil is a very potent oil, so I used caution and didn’t apply it neat — I mixed it with coconut oil first. After skin testing, I made the mixture.

In a small bowl, I mixed about two tablespoons of coconut oil with one drop of tea tree oil and three drops of lavender oil.  I ended up adding a few more drops of each essential oil to make the concoction more potent, since I tolerate these oils well. The genitals are sensitive mucous membranes though, so I was very cautious and only added one drop at a time, then retested my skin before adding more.

After mixing the oils together, I put the bowl in my freezer, stirring the mixture regularly to shape the oil into a solid clump. This made the oil easier to insert, since coconut oil melts as soon as it comes into contact with skin. Once the oil blend froze into a solid, easily insertable clump, I used clean fingers to gently insert it into my vagina. I used a cloth pad to absorb the oil, which leaked out over the next couple hours.

I found this to be an incredibly potent treatment that relieved the itching immediately, and cured the infection overnight. Hooray!

Consult a trusted healthcare professional before trying this treatment.

  1. Hiii!
    I’m so glad I found this information. I have a question though: did the itching/burning ever get worse before it got better, using this method? I also got some homeopathic pills from the health food store, but I began using your “concoction” yesterday, too. It makes total sense to me, and it’s the exact sort of solution I believe in. Thanks!

    1. Yes, this is called a healing crisis and is very common. Rule of thumb – for every year that a condition has been present, it will take 3 months to correct that condition. From acne to yeast…

      1. OMG
        I felt the onset this morning after a mild UTI yesterday. I mixed the oils in a Tampon and have had INSTANT relief. I have frozen the rest of the recipe for this evening to use before bed. A million Thankyou’s!

        1. I did not even freeze it i jis rub it on the outer vagina walls an i guess the healing properties enter the inside of the vagina
          This reallu works

          1. Also, making it cool helps to heal. If you apply warmth to your vagina, even when using warm/hot water in the shower, it could irritate it more. Coolness, (not cold) can relieve the itching and help heal faster. Lavender is good for inflammation. It can ease the itchiness as well because it’s a calming agent. Tea Tree kills bacteria.

    2. I just simply washed my fingers and inserted the tea tree oil directly into the vagina rubbing the vaginal walls. Yes the first application was itchy at first, but the second was relieving. I tried to remove any vaginal discharge first before applying. Worked fine for me.

  2. Well that was a little messy but really helped and provided some immediate relief. I’ve also had much success with a similar recipe using a douche made of yogurt, water, lavender and tea tree oils (from the book Herbs for Health and Healing by Kathi Keville)

  3. I love this. I had some immediate relief of the itching and some of the burning. Did you ever use this for longer than one day? I may not have used enough of the oils my first night

  4. Is this true? I find this wonderful. Been looking for efficient yeast infection treatment that is wise and affordable. I hope this is the one I am looking for.

  5. Hey there!!! I just put this mix in (after leaving in fridge overnight) and it’s 11:58am. Will it be OK to use this method again tonight while I sleep so it stays in all night? Thanks! Xo

    1. I use this method freely. Whenever I pee basically. The more you apply, the faster you’ll heal, I find. The key word is, consistency.

      But when I was in my 20’s many years ago, I went on a sugarfree, ferment-free, and any heavy foods that way me down free diet, and drank lots
      and lots of water. I did this for 2 weeks and it was gone. Back to my routine after that.

      1. I used Thieves once. I add it to my drinking water and baths often, so I figured I would be fine. However, it was so intense and painful Down South as it shot up my insides that I ended up crying on my bathroom floor in the fetal position. I shall never put it down there again.

        I WILL SAY, though, that after the terrible experience with Thieves and after the pain wore off, my yeast infection was, well, gone! It just took the cauterizing Thieves to do it.

    1. Do NOT put Theives in your vagina! There are hot oils in there and that will NOT feel good, and only cause more problems.

      1. I’ve put some thieves oil in my bath with some raw apple cider..after reading this and I’m sitting in my bath I’m panicking!! ..nothings burning though and maybe mixed I with the bath it isn’t so bad. I’m definitely gonna try this though…for me it’s a new relationship and over eager on the sex especially not having it for so long. I will find a balance!! Thank you again!!

  6. Could I skip the freezer part and add some of the mixture to a syringe and insert like a yeast infection cream?

    1. I believe that should work, yes. Just remember to use panty liners of some kind, as the liquid will come back out! Laying down should help. Part of the benefit of freezing it is that it stays solid inside of you for longer, vs leaking right out.

      1. Has anyone ever used this remedy while pregnant?? I am 22 weeks and am experiencing my first ever yeast infection, I love using my oils whenever possible however I am cautious while pregnant.

        1. I haven’t used it during pregnancy, and I can’t recommend it. But I do wonder how it compares to other conventional treatments during pregnancy… I’d feel more comfortable with it being primarily coconut oil with a drop or two of lavender, vs. the tea tree oil (which is more harsh).

        2. You’ve had your baby by now, but for future pregnant women reading this. Do not use tea tree oil as a suppository if you are pregnant. It was an option for me as a treatment for Strep B positive at 37 weeks, but about 30 minutes after I used it, my bag of waters prematurely ruptured. I love the oil option, just not tea tree when preganant.

          1. I use now while pregnant and I’m ok. I’m 27 weeks. Maybe for you was just a coincidence? Hmm:(

      2. So you insert the frozen concoction with your hands, similar to inserting a tampon? Just want to make sure I get it right, I need to try this!

  7. I tried this concoction an hour ago and already feel relief! How long do I need to wait between applications? I’m wanting to do it again tonight while I’m laying down. Is that too soon?

  8. Trying this out today… so far, so good! It beats having to go to the doctor and taking an antibiotic medicine. Thank you for the info!

    1. That’s what I do–with an organic, non-applicator tampon. I put about a teaspoon of coconut oil in my hands and then mix in 4 drops of thieves oil and 4 of tea tree, and then coat the tampon with this before inserting. I also do this to feel fresh towards the end of my cycle–works great! I rarely find the thieves too “hot” so long as it’s diluted, but use caution, because we are all different! However, I may replace it with lavender and see how that goes! 🌸

    1. This is what I did. Worked amazingly well. I also froze this concoction in small oval shaped ice molds and used them that way. More messy but worked effectively.

  9. When I read this story I realized just how similar it was to my condition. I suffered through a severe case of vaginal yeast infection that would not let up. The itching, burning and swelling of my labia were simply unbearable. Drugs, creams and lotions are designed to tackle the symptoms of yeast infections, not the real cause. This is why most conventional treatments for candida infection which work as a temporary band aid solution, fail to work in the long run. Even probiotic therapy which is considered an alternative, natural treatment that re-establishes the balance between the good bacteria and the bad bacteria in your digestive tract, fails to work in the long run simply because the root cause of Candida infection is still ignored. I don’t use drugs or creams anymore to bring me through the nightmare of yeast infections that was my reality for too long! The constant itching and rashes that sometimes continued for months are completely gone. Among the things that helped me out was the information on this website: http://www.journalofnaturalhealth.com/yeastinfection
    Hope it helps anyone reading this!

    1. I know this is a very late response… But I would NOT use purification EO it is a blend and has lemongrass in it… Ask someone on your team or ask in a FB group if anyone has tea tree that you can replace with your next order!! Good luck! Toni

  10. I’m 34wks pregnant. Coconut oil is great to cure because it is natural. Natural is the best way to go, especially during pregnancy. I make little coconut oil balls in the morning, about 7 to last thru the week, nd just pop them in the freezer and before bed pop one in. It really is effective like I was surprised.

    1. I can’t advise you specifically, but I would use coconut oil because of its antibacterial properties. If there’s no way I could get coconut oil, I suppose I’d use olive oil in a bind.

  11. Hi all!
    I was searching for something to help with my problem and my mom , found this website.
    Thank GOD for you, you’re an answer to prayer.
    I did have some of the things you were talking about, but I did use vinegar and lemon grass, lavender and Eucalyptus with water and was soothing,the itching and pain stop
    What I used was 1/2 tsp of vinegar 3 drops lemon grass, 2drops lavender and 1drop Eucalyptus and the rest water and use it to touch with. HAPPY CAMPER!😄

    1. Same coconut oil drop.of tea tree drop of lavender an apply around the vagina. I did that
      Also when d outer area is a little dry i used that method as well it works for me an continue to work
      Love all of you this site is great

  12. have been reading about candida for the past 2 hours now as i have had recurrent episodes and currently in the middle of one. I was feeling really fed up with how sore i am today and looked up natural remedies and came across this one. I had all the ingredients so rushed upstairs made the mix and wow, yes immediate relief from the soreness and itching. Going to put the rest in freezer and use later. ill try this over the next few days. Thanks so much

  13. I have melaleuca, is this the same as Tea Tree Oil? I used a lavender-melaleuca blend with instant relief and have re-applied about 3 times a day when itching gets uncomfortable, day 2 and I can tell it’s almost gone, I will probably keep applying at least around the outside and inner labia for a few more days to keep it away. But seriously so nice and so much more relief than over the counter drugs. The melaleuca has that nice tingly-cooling effect.

  14. Sweet RELIEF!!! I used Monistat 1 yesterday morning and this morning it felt like it was a million times worse!!! I used this as instructed and also added 1 drop of oregano oil. I did this a few minutes ago and already have major burn and itch relief!
    TIP: If you are in desperate need of instant relief and don’t want to wait for it to set up in the freezer try this. Mix everything up in a shot glass (or another very small glass). Put it in the middle of a bowl and surround it with ice. Sprinkle some salt over the ice and add enough cold water to go slightly above the level of the oils in your shot glass. Try gently spinning the ice around the glass and stir as it sets up. It was ready in just a minute or two!

    Thank you so much for this remedy!!!

  15. Last week I was at an event (walking lots) and wore the wrong panties and now I have a rash that is very raw and tender on the outter lip. I tried some over the counter stuff but it seem to make it more ra. Last night I use lavender YLEO and sweet almond oil… It’s better today. I’m going to try the tea tree, lavender and coconut oil today.
    Thanks for all the great information
    Toni

  16. After endless searches for months on how to combat yeast infections I’ve finally come across your page and I’m desperate. Thankfully I have all the ingredients, lavender, melaleuca, and coconut oil. I have slathered as much of this concoction as I could onto the end of a tampon and inserted it, wearing a pad for extra oil leakage protection. The remaining bit is in the freezer to be used tomorrow as needed. After all the comments here I’m very hopeful this will work for me too.

    1. I fell better after using it 3 nights but is not completely gone😥 I wonder for how long I have to uses it. For how long you use it?

  17. I apologize in advance for the novel I’m about to write, but am desperate for some answers, or input from others who may be able to empathize or share their experiences.
    I am seeing my GP tomorrow, but I started with what felt like a yeast infection on Christmas Day. I haven’t had a yeast infection in over 10 years! I turned 40 this year and am feeling many (not so great) changes in my body and health.
    I used Monistat 1 that evening. After a few days I experienced some relief and thought I was on the mend. Yesterday it got much worse and today is unbearable! I’m questioning whether this is, in fact, a yeast infection or something more serious. My cycle, which is now somewhat irregular, should start in the next 3-5 days. I’ve had flank pain/discomfort, particularly on my right side, for over a week. I went to the ER for it on Dec. 28. I have bilateral kidney stones, but none that appeared to be blocking or causing problems with my urinaty tract. I’ve had them before so I know the excruciating pain when they pass!!! Has anyone had flank/back pain with their yeast infections? I’m not noticing much discharge, just major redness, some swelling and major itching and some pain. Thank you in advance for any insight you may be able to offer. God bless!

    1. I was just at the Dr today for the same thing I have very bad back pain so I thought it was a uti. But Dr said the test came back negative and it was a yeast infection. This is my first infection that has been in my lower back. The Dr did say it is pretty comments.

  18. That is amazing. I am suffering since 20 December, and saw the doctor 10 days ago. I used creams and pill for a week, and they didn’t help. I heard about coconut properties before but was skeptical. Well, once you are desperate, you start to try different things. I want to say THANK YOU!!! I had instant relief after using tea tree oil and coconut oil on my pants, and after that first test, I tried it freezed, and oh my God, the discomfort, itch, redness and pain subsided. It is 90% better. That is crazy how something simple can be more effective than medicines. You live, you learn. Keeping Spreading the true, girl!!

  19. I tried mixing some tea tree, lavender, eucalyptus oil and some aloe Vera gel. Its helping relieve the itching and burning sensation.

  20. O. M. G!! I cannot tell you how excited I was to find this post. I’ve had labia itching for almost a year! I had gone to my PCP who said it was a yeast infection and she gave me a 2 day antibiotic….it worked for mainly a day or 2 and then the itching started back up. I’ve been using a topical cream ever since which sometimes helps, other times it did nothing to help the itch. Tried this this morning (I was desperate to try it), didnt freeze it up just glob globbed it onto a tampon and left it in for a couple of hours. I have been itch free all day!!! ALL DAY! I still have some left over that I refrigerated this morning so will try it over night. Thankfully I’ve become obsessed with EO so I had everything on hand. THANK YOU!

  21. Does it not make your insides freeze? Read thru the comments and didn’t see anyone mention it. I would think it would be so cold it would be uncomfortable? Just wondering!

    1. Your insides are so warm that it almost instantly melts the frozen coconut oil. Insert quickly, Laying down, with a paper towel underneath yourself( for when the oil melts). I do this at night before bed.

  22. OH HOLY No More Itch!!
    A couple of years ago I found out about the amazing things coconut oil can do and have since used it for so many health and beauty applications I couldn’t list them.. Too many to remember.
    I have used it too cure a yeast inf. a couple times but this time the coconut oil wasn’t working fast enough, it would help for a short time but that’s it.. ( although in coconut oils’ defense I think my current jar is a not as high quality as I usually have on hand) but I digress….I got a jar of my regular brand this evening , then found this post, mixed some up and the intense relief was HEAVENLY!!!! You are my hero Kristen Tea!!
    I have used EO for a UTI and many other things but for whatever reason I had never thought of mixing them in coconut oil!!
    You should get an award or the “Best Idea Ever” prize.. Something …
    THANK YOU THANK YOU >>>
    My husband thanks you too!! no waiting it out while this cure works its magic ! 😉

    1. She is amazing this combination really works thank u so much kristian your name is really holly you are god sent

  23. This is the second night I’ll try it, yesterday it was burning so much I understand is normal because the yeast will disappear.
    Girls how long you sugesr using the oils 2 nights o more ?
    Thank you

  24. Everyone should have tea tree oil and lavender and coconut oil in every medicine cabinet across the world! But for the true oilman, if you happen to have chamomile oil or rosemary, you can also mix coconut oil, a few drops of rosemary and chamomile oils and give a really good rub in all over the labia area for immediate itch relief. The chamomile is so soothing. Intense itch can make you feel like you’re about to lose your mind! I’ve been using oils for years for this issue, I’m extremely sensitive down there and any thing can trigger a reaction, I’m talking about anything with artificial fragrance, even the wrong toilet paper can make me itch like a mad woman. Tea tree oil has been my best friend for years. This last time though, I used toilet paper from Sam’s club at the same time that I had washed with a cleanser that I THOUGHT was all natural olive oil soap, I read it twice and failed to see the word fragrance on the ingredients. It was like a 5 alarm fire. My entire southern region was on high alert. So so so stupid! This time however the tea tree with coconut oil alone didn’t do the trick, I started to wonder if I had become resistant to tea tree oil. I pulled out the big guns, melaluca t40-c3, mixed with liquid coconut oil… no lasting relief. This is what led me to do more research. I found this site along with the info for rosemary and chamomile, I only had the rosemary on hand, I’ve since added chamomile. What I’ve learned through this, is if you really plan to go all natural, you’ve got to make sure that you have a good oil selection of oils on hand. Side note, I do not buy doterra or young living oils as I find the mark up to be astronomical. I buy very high quality oils though, there are lots of good companies out there. I’ve done tons of research. I HAVE bought oils from the big two, but when I am filling my oils supply and stocking up I have had to buy elsewhere. Essential oils are amazing. Life changing.

    1. What do you mean when you said, “Young Living” oils are astronomical.
      Anything wrong with that? I heard it was the best. I heard that anyway.

      What really good quality oils name brand do you recommend? Are they better than the ‘astronomical’ ones?

  25. HELP!!!!!!!
    I think I have Candida on my skin. I have never had a vaginal yeast infection in my life. I am 36. i suppose I have been lucky. ANYWAY — I was diagnosed with Endometriosis and was prescribed birth control pills for the always present pain. they helped enormously, HOWEVER, I have been ITCHING OH SO BAD around the area of my c-section scar. It itches so bad at times it hurts!!! I was told to get monistat cream and apply it, it went away but it always seems to come back. I have applied plain tea tree oil to the area, it helped but it came back.
    I’m hopefully because this got rid of all the posters’ yeast infections…im hoping it will do the same for me for a skin yeast infection!!!!!
    Do I just apply this topically to my skin in the area?? and can I increase the amounts of E.O. since I’m applying this to my skin? I itch so bad I’m ready to just put on straight essential oils to the area in hopes that the itch will go away!!! someone–please help me out!! pretty please!!

    1. I had the same problem and after much frustration and months of expensive treatments I tried an anti fungal cream(think athletes foot) and it was gone in 2 days. So I made a natural version which was the original posted recipe above with a few added drops of chamomile & oregano oil

  26. Thank you soooo much! This was amazing.

    I actually also found my bottom was super itchy too (argh) so froze a little ball along with a larger one. Before going to bed, I used the larger one like a tampon & inserted the the smaller up my rectum. I woke up in the morning with mostly all symptoms gone.

    Don’t forget to use a light pad before going to bed.

  27. Thank you for this and a tweak to share! I haven’t had an infection in long enough that I didn’t recognize the symptoms until a few days later when it had progressed to ‘drive you crazy and keep you up all night’. When you mentioned melaleuca oil, I suddenly remembered I had some Melaleuca’s water soluble Nature’s Cleanse. I added some lavender oil to that within a few minutes… SIGH!

    But that’s not my tweak. I made up the blend in the article so I could use it overnight, and was trying for figure a way to make it less messy and convenient to ‘apply’. This is what I came up with… Do you have any of those big 3/8″ smoothie straws, or have any straws saved from your bubble tea? I took a big straw, pinched the end shut, and sealed it with Scotch tape, making sure it couldn’t leak, After an mixed the blend, I spooned it into the straw and tapped it down. Using a drinking glass to keep it upright, I put it in the freezer.

    Because it was so thin, the mixture hardened very quickly. To use it, I just applied pressure at the base and squeezed a column of the hardened blend out. I broke off about 3 inches, and slid it in. Repeat to use more. Minimum mess and easy to use!

  28. So happy I came across this post! I’m always a bit skeptical when I hear or read about quick remedies because they seem too good to be true (and usually are). But after reading all of the positive comments here, and how desperate I was to kick this yeast infection, I decided to give it a go. I felt relief instantly and by morning I saw dramatic improvement! Thank you for sharing- it was a life saver!!

  29. Hello,
    I hope someone replies to this. I have had a yeast infection for the last 3 months and I have tried going back to my doctor over and over again. Yesterday was my first day trying it and although I have noticed some symptom relief, the infection is still there. In fact, by now I feel almost the same way I did before. So in general, the symptoms only disappeared in the morning and came back right now. If your treatment was successful, how long did you do it for? I am currently using coconut oil, lavender oil and tea tree oil. Thank you!

    1. Sorry, when I said “Yesterday was my first day trying it ” I meant that it was my first day trying the oil treatment mentioned on this page.

  30. I read from another site that lavender oil was antifungal and I have different carrier oils. A few days ago I noticed itching, swelling, nasty yeast infection which has been probably 10 years since I had one, not this severe though. I decided to take gauze pads soaked in sovereign silver, coconut oil and a few drops of lavender oil, folded up and inserted into vagina for at least a half hour. I bought the stupid twenty dollar Monistat one day insert with the seven day cream prior to trying this. No relief whatsoever. Thank God for forums and info like this because I don’t know what we would do if pharmaceutical poisons were the only place to turn. The silver and oils have had an immediate effect on symptoms and just doing this a few times a day for 2 days has reduced the discharge dramatically and swelling.

  31. Even though the swelling had gone down a bit, I was itching like mad at night from a yeast infection.. my first dreadful experience with this, and I just could not get any relief! I was prescribed a cream which after use for 3 nights, did not work. After another sleepless night I couldn’t take it anymore and decided to try tea tree oil.

    I was a bit hesitant as I already had a bottle that I used for inhalation only, when I had the flu, and just by the smell you know it is potent stuff. I searched the internet and came across a simple application method (as did not want to put anything up the jay just yet).

    Not sure if this will work for you but it saved me. I had a quick shower to clean myself first. I put 1/2 teaspoon of tea tree oil in 1/2 cup warm water and stirred. Now yes the oil kinda sits on top of the water obviously, so probably best to use a water soluble version. But this was all I had. I then used several cotton balls dipped in the solution (squeeze out excess water) and gently but firmly apply/rub around everywhere. I did insert just inside the vagina as could feel the itch there too.

    The feeling overall is like your mouth after a fresh mint..it didn’t burn but was really fresh. If it had burned I would not have continued. But My God. Instant relief. Literally instant. I used about 8 cotton balls in total and then left it for 15 minutes. I then jumped in the shower and rinsed it off.

    Afterwards I made a salt bath using warm water. I used iodinized salt as was all I had, but prob better to use natural sea salt. I plunked myself in. At first there is a weird sensation but then relief. I washed my hands thoroughly with antibacterial soap first, and very gently rubbed around the area to make sure the salt water was getting everywhere and inside too. I sat there for 10-15 mins. I got out gently patted area dry then used a couple to a few drops of jojoba oil and applied to the area as well as the anus to moisturise. Jojoba oil is naturally antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, analgesic, anti-inflammatory and hypoallergenic. Or so they say. That night I slept so well and the itchiness never returned. I did the same method the next day as well to be sure.
    Everyone is different so I am only sharing my experience, it may not be a fix for you. I actually couldn’t believe this worked, all that money going towards prescriptions…that couldn’t do what tea tree oil, water and salt did for me. 🙂

  32. This was a Godsend. Thank you so much. I have an applicator from a box of monostat. I froze the mixture, scooped it in the applicator and inserted the mixture. Worked great, no mess. THANK YOU for this amazing remedy.

  33. 🎶Hallelujah! 🎶Hallelujah!🎶It worked for my infection almost instantly after I’d already taken TWO Diflucan pills 2 weeks before. The vaginal pain had come back with an angry vengeance. The Tea Tree, Lavender, and Coconut Oil felt like heaven!!! There was absolutely ZERO pain associated with the oils. I can not believe I’ve dealt with these things off and on for 43 years! Thank you so very much for sharing this miracle. Thank You Father for providing us with such a simple and thorough CURE.

    1. I was getting ready to hit a diflucan regimine soon, as I cannot get these things under control. I was beginning to think I might be diabetic, they are constant. I read that if over the counter stuff doesnt work, diflucan wont either, because you may have a drug resistant strain. Im going to try this first, im desperate. Thank you for your post here.

  34. I have a severe case of thrush caused by Candida Glabrata, which is not as common as Candida Albicans. About 3 weeks ago I began inserting boric acid in a capsule every night for two weeks. I used Young Living hand sanitizer externally am and pm. This burns for a few seconds, after which comes great relief from the itching caused by infection discharge. Most posts I read said not to use boric acid for more than 2 weeks. Then I found this blog and I used above recipe internally for around 10 nights, with Young Living Claraderm externally one night, then above mixture the next night, and so on. Im still going as infection is not clear yet, however itch and discharge are well under control. There is a brilliant website called optimal health which has a heap of information on how to make and use essential oils in anal and vaginal suppositories. There I found different recipes for vaginal thrush suppositories and they say to use alternate essential oil combinations for several weeks until infection has completely cleared. I make the suppositories in ice cube trays which are circular and have a rubber base to make it easier to pop the suppositories out. You freeze them and you have them ready for whenever you need them. Frozen coconut oil/essential oil suppositories are extremely soothing to infected tissue and bring instant relief.

  35. I started getting the yeast infections due to indoor pool and hot tub. I was wondering if I could wear a tampon soaked just in coconut oil while swimming to prevent any further infection? And does the coconut oil work by itself or do I need to add the tree tea oil and lavender with it?

  36. I developed a slight yeast infection yesterday after taking a course of antibiotics for a UTI a couple of weeks ago. I was dreading having to go the chemist and get diflucan or similar and having recently started using EO’s I googled and found this page – Yay!!! I don’t have any tea-tree at the moment but I did have a few drops of Lavender left in the bottle. I only had fractionated coconut oil which never hardens of course so I mixed about a teaspoon of this with what I had left of the lavender and then put it in a little 5ml spray bottle like the kind breath freshener spray comes in (the one I used was an old breath spray bottle that I rinsed thoroughly with hot hot water) and then laying down on the bed sprayed the oil directly into my vagina and also the surrounding area. Oh sweet relief! It wasn’t messy at all because the spray only applies a thin layer so I didn’t need to wear a panty liner. I’m going to apply this every time I go to the toilet for the next day or two. If the initial result is anything to go by I should be feeling 100% by then and if not I’ll borrow tea-tree from a friend and try again. Thanks for posting this, by the comments I can see its helping many people!

  37. I found the coconut oil to help a lot, I rub it all over inside & outside of vagina for a yeast infection. I tried the tampon with tea tree oil and coconut oil and I felt relief right away. I also found a warm bath with 2 cups of raw organic apple cider vinegar helped to sooth my skin, it has anti fungal properties too. You can drink a diluted glass of the cider in water which is said to help clear up a yeast infection also…

  38. Unrefined coconut oil is the solidifying one right? Not FCO. just realized i have my first yeast infections in YEARS. going to try this but want to know exactly how much of the mixture to insert at a time and about how many times before you can stop. Wanna nip this in the butt ASAP. Since I work from home I can’t leave to get anything but I’ve got all my “witches potion” so my husband calls it!

  39. I only have organic coconut oil. Will that be just as effective even without the essential oils ? And how long do you think I should do this? I don’t have any discharge or burning , just red , inflamed , and slightly itchy , and a little sore .

  40. Not sure If its me & my diet but I have on going yeast infections and its absolutely killing me !!!
    I don’t have any lavender oils but I do have coconut and Tea tree oil, any methods i could use to make this go away possibly overnight or within the next day?
