All natural Yeast infection salve

So long vagasil, this is my natural alternative. (sorry for the TMI)
This salve arose out of necessity. While on vacation I developed the worst case of yeast overgrowth in my you know…I was in an unfamiliar city and it was the middle of the night.  There was no way I was going to be able to sleep.  I went to take some ibuprofen for the swelling, when I noticed my oregano oil capsules that I take for my sinus yeast overgrowth…. Well duh, Mindy! I emptied 2 of the capsuls into some coconut oil and used it twice a day on the 2 day ride home. It helped, but didn’t completely cure the issue. So when at home I mixed this up. It works (and smells) great. 6 days on this and it cleared the whole thing up. Also helped with the immediate itching. Also, works on diaper caused by yeast and soothes the rest, my kids love it.

1\4 cup coconut oil
1 tsp olive oil
2 tsp lanolin
1 tsp bees wax
20 drops oregano essential oil
15 drops lavender essential oil
10 drops rosemary essential oil
5 drops tea tree essential oil (not recommended for children or pregnant women)
15 drops peppermint essential oil (not for children under 2.5 years)

Heat oils, wax and lanolin until melted.  Cool, until comfortable to the touch add essential oils then cool completely.

Note: I am not a health Care professional, this is a product that worked well for me.  Essential oils are very strong, please test a small amount on your arm to see if you are sensitive to any of the oils before applying in large amounts. If you have a reaction wipe off with olive or coconut oil, as essential oils are not water soluble.
