Clove Bud Oil: Using clove bud oil for Candida July 11 2014
Candida is a type of yeast infection that occurs most often within the digestive tract, but can also be found topically on the skin. It is essentially a strain of yeast that can overgrow on or in the body and cause a host of problems, ranging from digestive upset, skin disorders, fatigue, thrush, vaginal yeast infections, and more. Studies have shown concentrated clove bud oil treatments can help to eliminate fungal infections, and since Candida is a type of fungal infection, it can help to inhibit Candida growth both on and in the body. It’s important to note that this may take some time (and patience), as fungal growth best responds to a diligent application process over a substantial period of time.
How to use clove bud oil to treat Candida:
To treat intestinal Candida, take 2-3 drops of tea tree oil in 8 ounces of water or herbal tea. Repeat up to 3 times daily.
For topical treatment, make a spray of 4-5 drops clove bud oil per 8 ounces of distilled water. Use on affected areas periodically throughout the day.
Add 10-20 drops to a bath or foot soak to treat harder to reach areas such as the back, hands and feet.
Tea tree oil may be applied topically to fungal spots on the skin in its pure form, using Q-tips or cotton swabs to apply a small but concentrated amount to affected areas.
In addition to treatment, clove bud oil can also be used in the prevention of a Candida outbreak. Once you have successfully treated a fungal infection, use any one of the above methods periodically to prevent a recurring outbreak and maintain overall skin health.
