13 Anti~fungal Necessities

featured products

Anti-fungal Why do we need anti-fungal properties in our first aid kits and medicine cabinets? Science Daily:  Currently, there are relatively few types of anti-fungal drugs to treat infections and those that are available often have side effects.  The rise of resistant strains of bacteria, fungi and viruses has become a widespread problem because of overused antibiotics.  

Time and time again, medical science keeps bumping into the truth that pure essential oils have benefits that drugs can't duplicate. If more people knew the truth how about how much easier it is to maintain wellness naturally without the "help" of pharmaceuticals we would be a much healthier society today - in my humble opinion (shouting this in my head!). Okay, let's talk about which EOs have marvelous anti-fungal properties and what some of their additional benefits are...

CASSIA  ~  Physical and emotional stimulant that gets the blood and mind going, improves circulation (massage topically), supports digestive system, diffuse to reduce drowsiness.

CINNAMON  ~  Cinnamon is a hot oil should use with caution. Anti-inflammatory, levels blood sugar, effective against Staph infections, mouth freshener, digestive, curbs cravings.

CLARY SAGE  ~  Calming, regulates hormones, nerve tonic, anti-depressant, calms convulsions, antioxidant, deodorant.

CLOVE  ~  Clove is a strong oil and should be used with caution, natural numbing agent, anti-inflammatory, expectorant, control nausea by inhalation, levels blood sugar, slow macular degeneration.

CORIANDER  ~  Analgesic (pain reliever), spasmodic cramp relief, natural detoxifier (heavy metals), inhibits growth of fungus, digestive, deodorant.

GERANIUM  ~  Astringent, diuretic, prevents microbes from developing on wounds allowing body to focus on internal challenges, a styptic (stops bleeding) speeds coagulation, encourages cell regeneration, tonic, dewormer.

LAVENDER  ~  Lethal to skin pathogenic strains (dermatophytes, candida/thrush), important oil for immunocompromised such as chemo, transplant or AIDS patients, boosts immunity, calming agent, analgesic, effective for lice

LEMONGRASS  ~  Analgesic, useful for tendon/muscle/plantar fasciitis aches and pains, inhibitor of bacterial growth external and internal, reduce dangerously high fever, prevents intestinal gas, increase perspiration, sedative.

MELALEUCA  ~  Cure-all reputation, effective for dangerous microbial infections, capable of rupturing casing/cyst that protects virus from antibiotics, promotes absorption of nutrients, inhibits fungal growth, faster healing.

OREGANO  ~  Oregano is a hot oil use with caution. Expectorant, natural antibiotic, kills parasites (Giardia effective), repel bed bugs, neutralizes free radicals, allergy relief, pain killer, use in moderation.

PATCHOULI  ~  Insecticidal, a repellent, reduce inflammation from fever, reduces fever, antidepressant, protects wounds from becoming septic, speeds healing and reduces scarring, sedative, effective for eczema and psoriasis.

ROSEMARY  ~  Digestive, promotes hair growth, reduces symptoms of herpes virus, respiratory/bronchial, beneficial soak for arthritis and muscle ache, reduces cortisol levels, immunity booster.

THYME  ~  Antispasmodic, diuretic and stimulant - removes toxins (uric acid) and stimulates circulation simultaneously which is beneficial for arthritis, gout and rheumatism, cough suppressant, excellent for heart health.  

First-Aid-Kit  

As you can see with just a few PURE essential oils you have a well rounded and highly effective first aid kit in a few small bottles.  Keep in mind, giving emergency preparedness considerable thought is always an intelligent choice for our families. Many have experienced damaging weather conditions as Mother Nature has been very active in recent years.   Our health care system is changing and some may of us may find ourselves changing with it.  

The truth of the matter is that none of us are exempt from being without medical or dental care in times of an emergency.  I encourage you to start using pure essential oils in the present, not only are they good for your health, cost effective and efficient but, using and learning about them now is the best kind of preparedness should the road get bumpy in the future. A friend of mine offered great insight the other day which prompted this blog post, should you have to leave your home in an emergency - carrying a small assortment of essential oils can replace anti-septics like rubbing alcohol, hand sanitizer, betadine, OTC medications, bandages, stockpile of prescription drugs even.  

All I ask is that you give emergency preparedness serious consideration and learn about the long term benefits of pure essential oils now, there's no time like the present!

There are several: melaleuca, cinnamon, lemongrass, lavender, patchouli and an essential oil blend called Shield…to name a few of the top considerations.

I started using Melaleuca last October on my two big toenails, which have a fungus that I haven’t been able to get rid of. They’ve been growing out clear! Meds for toenail fungus are so expensive, and last time I tried one I had to get a blood test once a month to check my liver.

Neem oil is wonderful on superbugs like staph. Use it as the carrier oil for the EO

Mickey, do you have any All Purpose Healing Salve by chance? If so, use that morning and night. Or, make your own blend of 1 tablespoon organic coconut oil with a drop each of Lavender and Patchouli, store in small glass jar.

I have a patch of eczema on my face that just seems to be getting worse. Tried coconut oil and Shea butter. Of course doc wants me to use a steroid cream but I am hesitant seeing that the area affected is on my eyelid, getting bigger, which means even closer to my eye! Any advice?

Rebecca. Thank you so much. I have just been diagnosed with a candida overgrowth. In addition to dietary changes, I see that I can also treat this with essential oils. It looks like lavender and melaleuca would be good to use but I don’t know how to use them. Do I put them into a carrier oil and apply topically (and if so how many drops do I use and can I use both in the same preparation?) or do I use a food grade eo and ingest them? (Sorry, I’m new to this and have a lot to learn.) Can you recommend a book that might have this sort of information? I really appreciate all you are teaching me.

He might try apple cider vinegar soaks or applications in between the EO applications too. I have seen that help a lot as well. But he needs to be persistent and not get lax about treatment (I know how tough that can be for a 20 y/o guy) and keep feet as dry as possible maybe EO foot powder (I believe you can find a recipe on this site) in sneakers and cleats. Athletes foot can be such a bear, good luck!

Louise, first of all look to your diet. I would cut out all sugar and white flour if you haven’t made this change already. Here’s a good link with an EO blend you might want to try!

I wasn’t sure where else to post this, but do you have any recommendations for psoriasis? Which EO works or is worth trying and how? Thanks!

Marcia, you might want to try the LLP Allergy Blend now. 9 drops in a capsule every 3 hrs if needed or, 3x daily! Diffusing the blend is good idea too.

My husband has developed a consistant runny nose. It drips all the time. He’s never had this before. I think it might be linked to alergies but not sure. I tried rubbing lemon on both sides of his nose but it didn’t help. Could you please suggest another method? Thanks. Your site is so helpful to me and my family. I love using all natural treatments. We’re on enough prescription meds.
