Anti Fungal Uses For Essential Oils

( Fungus, Ringworm, Jock Itch/Yeast Infection, Athletes foot..)

By  Beth Dupree and J.C. Shannon

ATHLETES FOOT:

Prevention: School is in session and our children are once more involved in various sports like football and soccer. ATHLETE'S FOOT is one of the most common complaints from those young sportsmen, as is jock itch. Because ATHLETE'S FOOT is so contagious, your first concern should be treating it as quickly as possible. Since they are both caused by fungi, the best thing to do is dry the problem area out and keep it clean. Whenever possible, let a pair of shoes dry out for 24 hours before wearing again. Better yet buy 2 pairs of shoes and rotate. Wear clean socks and underwear every day. When playing sports, use a fresh pair of socks while playing and change to clean ones after showering.

Treatment:

In all of these recipes Nightingale essential oil blend can be used in place of Niaouli essential oil. Personally I prefer it because it contains all the tea tree oils and clove; which is a 1-2 punch for fungus and discomfort.

There are also several treatments using Rocky Mountain essential oils that will help you. Niaouli (melaleuca quinquenervia) essential oil is the best essential oils for athletes foot and jock itch because Niaouli essential oil is antiseptic, antiviral and, most importantly in this case, anti-fungal.  Niaouli essential oil is also safe to use neat, or full strength, on even the most delicate parts of the body.

Lavender essential oil shares many of the same properties of Niaouli essential oil and can be used together in any treatment. Both essential oils are safe to use on children, cats, horses, dogs, goats, and the elderly.

The following are a few recommendations in treating ATHLETE'S FOOT and jock itch:
 

ATHLETE'S FOOT Bath

6 drops Niaouli essential oil
4 Drops Lavender essential oil
2 drops Sandalwood essential oil
2 gallons warm water 

Mix well and soak feet for at least 20 minutes.
The Sandalwood essential is added because it conditions and soothes sore, cracked feet and toes.
 

Anti-itch Foot Bath

Blend together:
10 drops Lavender essential oil
12 drops Niaouli essential oil

5 drops Clove essential oil  

Add:
1 quart hot water
1 cup epsom salt

Mix well. Soak feet for 20 minutes.
 

Foot Spray
4 drops Lavender essential oil
2 drops Peppermint essential oil
2 drops Rosemary essential oil
4 drops Niaouli essential oil

add 4 drops clove essential oil if you are experiencing a lot of itching!
16 oz water 

Put in spray bottle and spritz feet after they have been cleaned and dried. This will help in the treatment of ATHLETE'S FOOT as well as eliminating many of the nasty odors combined with foot problems. The Peppermint essential oil will help with cooling the burn of the fungus and the Niaouli essential oil and Lavender essential oil work hardest at killing the fungus.
 

Treating the inside of sneakers and cleats will also help avoid worse problems, as well as eliminating odors. Spray them at night when you take them off for the last time of the day. You do not want to spray them and then wear them as the moisture can lead to fungus. 
 

Shoe Freshener Powder
7 drops Lavender essential oil
5 drops Niaouli essential oil
3 drops Peppermint essential oil

or 10 drops Purifying essential oil blend

or 10 drops Nightingale essential oil blend
1 cup baking powder 

Add drops to powder in jar with shaker lid. Shake vigorously to spread the oils completely through the powder. Store in a airtight container with a shaker top. Evenly coat insides of shoes with powder overnight. Be sure to empty powder from shoes before wearing. Use treatment 3-4 nights in a row. Or use as needed for prevention. Repeat when necessary.

JOCK ITCH/ VAGINITIS

Never share jock straps or supporters. Treat these as you would underwear and test and spray (see below). While this does increase your laundry loads, it, more importantly, helps avoid more fungus problems. Because the fungus that causes jock itch is so heard to kill, your best bet is to replace all underwear worn during the infection. Borax can be helpful in eradicating fungus.

You can test for the mold on underwear by spraying Oxyclean spray on the most intimate parts of the underwear. If it bubbles there is live active mold. If you do this for the entire family once a month, you can avoid a lot of misery later.

Ladies, toss out all your underwear every six months. Or immediately after each yeast infection. If your husband has jock itch or you have a yeast infection; you can spread it to each other. Use diligence in abstaining and treating until you are both clear of infection!  Men should replace their socks and underwear Once a year! Every six months if they are prone to infection or sweat on a daily basis.

MEN:

When treating Jock Itch, the following remedy is best:
2 drops Niaouli essential oil in a bowl of warm water. Wash affected area and dry off completely.
 

Then apply to affected area:
1 drop Niaouli essential oil and 1 drop lavender essential oil. OR 1 drop Nightingale or Purifying essential oil blend. If it starts to burn apply FCO (Fractionated Coconut Oil). Repeat morning and night for 5 days.

LADIES:

There are many treatments available to treat yeast infections. The most important thing to know is what is if it really is a yeast infection and causing them; if they are occasional (less than once a year) or recurrent (more than twice a year). Chronic Yeast infections can be caused by antibiotic/ hormone/ steroid use, chronic immune disorders, bodily acidity, passing back and forth between partners, reaction to soaps/ detergents/ perfumes/ douche, thyroid disorders, diabetes, bacteria/ fungus imbalances, toilet paper, feminine products, and restrictive, synthetic fabrics. Take our free hormone balance, thyroid function, and toxicity tests. Switch to chemical free cleaning and laundry products, switch to chlorine, softener and dye free feminine products and toilet paper. Wear 100% cotton underwear, crotch less pantyhose, correct an over acidic diet by not eating and grains and increasing fruits and vegetables, and start a daily regimen of kefir.

Here are some different and effective options:

Douche: (Use nightly for 7 days and each time you have relations)

1 disposable vinegar and water douche

2 drops Niaouli essential oil ( Do not substitute Nightingale it will sting)

2 drops Lavender essential oil

If the infection is very severe you can add 2 TBSP Betadine iodine solution or 1 TBSP Boric acid

Capsule Insert:

Drop all the oils into a gelatin capsule and quickly ( before it melts) insert high into the vagina at night; right before bed for 7 nights) There are many recipes (mix and match). Always fill the remainder of the capsule with fractionated coconut oil or other carrier oil after you drop the essential oils in the capsule.

These go from mild to severe:

Recipe 1: 3 drops Bergamot essential oil  and  3 drops Spruce essential oil

Recipe 2: 3 drops Niaouli essential oil, 3 drops Lavender essential oil, 1 drop Purifying

Recipe 3: 3 drops Purifying essential oil

Recipe 4: 2 drops lavender, 2 drops rosewood, 2 drops patchouli essential oil

Recipe 5: 2 drops Oregano essential oil ( make sure you use a carrier oil)

Recipe 6: 1 capsule filled with boric acid

Recipe 7: 1 capsule filled with boric acid, 1 capsule filled with Betadine or Colloidal Silver

I'm Dying, I'm In Hell and I am going to scratch myself raw! Help...

 Go take a warm bath immediately, or use a warm wet wash cloth or icepack in a wet washcloth until the misery subsides. Then do recipe 6 or 7 (above) and moisten a cotton ball with colloidal silver or Betadine and rub all over the genital area. You may have to do this a couple of times for a day or two.

Ringworm:

Ringworm is not a worm but a fungal infection. It is often caught from animals (even your own pets), clothing, school, yard work, or even other people! If you have this infection you need to find the source and make sure you don't spread it to others. The most important tool in the fight against ringworm is a black light. You may not be able to see ringworm in pets with the naked eye. Ringworm will glow under black light!

The first step is to make sure once you are diagnosed, is to make sure there all no other sources of infection in your home. Check all other people living in the home and all pets with a black light. If the infection involves children you should notify their school, church, sports groups or other social activities.

Treatment is simple but you must be vigilant. Treat any active spots that are visible to the naked eye or glow under backlight (make sure you check the hair) with a drop of niaouli, nightingale, or purifying essential oil. Do this 1 time a day for 2 weeks. Make sure you treat pets also if they are infected. Black light all bedding and clothing if there are active spots spray them with oxyclean (this safely kills it without hurting your clothes) and wash in hot water with borax. For couches or carpets have them steam cleaned. To help clear up or prevent scalp infection add 20 drops of the afore mentioned oils to you favorite shampoo. Wash your cats or dogs with shampoo but also add 20 drops to theirs.

Always remember, fungi thrive in warm moist areas. To kill them and keep them from returning, keep the area as clean and dry as possible and treat with 100% therapeutic grade essential oils. The fungi don't like the oils anymore than they like dryness. Those two things will solve most, if not all, of your fungus problems. Here at Rocky Mountain Oils, we provide the high quality, therapeutic grade oils you need to treat the personal fungus problems we all run into at one time or another.
