2. Tea tree oil. This essential oil is a powerful natural antifungal and antibacterial. In order to fight candida, mix 4-5 drops of tea tree essential oil in some water and use it for a washing.

3. Yogurt. In order to rebalance your vaginal flora, with a sterile needleless syringe, put some plain Greek yogurt in your vagina. Apply every night before going to bed for a week.

4. Baking soda. This product creates a chemical environment which hinders the development of this infection. Moreover, it also soothes the itching. Once a day, make a washing with a tablespoon of baking soda mixed in water.

5. Lapacho. This plant has antifungal and antibacterial properties, very efficient in the fight against vaginal infections. You can buy it in the form of mother tincture or supplements at the herbalist’s shop or at the pharmacy.

6. Soothing creams. In order to stop itchings, burnings and reddenings, you can apply more times a day on your vulva a soothing cream containing chamomile and calendula. Moreover, you should not use antifungal creams without your doctor’s prescription.
