Treating Fungus

In my older posts Beating Acne... and Warts and Plants To The Rescue, I have told you about how tea tree essential oil can help get rid of acne and warts. Here's another great use I found about the oil... you can use it to treat fungus. Toenail fungus is when your toenail becomes thicker, turns dingy yellow, pulls away from the skin or develops crumbling edges.

To treat it, use a cotton swab to apply 100 % tea tree oil to the affected area for six months. Recent studies have shown that the antifungal compounds found in the oil killed fungus spores as effectively as chemical-based meds. While treating with oil, you may also try soaking your feet in a mouthwash bath for 30 minutes. Just fill a basin with two gallons of warm water and 1/4 cup of antiseptic mouthwash.

Fungus loves to thrive on warm, moist environments, so avoid walking barefoot on wet floors, pool decks, public showers or locker rooms. And be careful when having a pedicure in a salon, the basins and drains should be disinfected as well as the instruments.

Hey Liza,

I had no idea that feet funghi could be treated with tea tree oil; so I have written it down and I will recommend it to people I know who have this problem.

I hope all is well with you, and I wish you a blessed weekend, darling :D!

Cheers and hugs

Hi Ate Liz! I once had fungus on my big toe which I think was caused by regular visit to a foot spa salon. I've tried and tested this and it really works but, it is more effective if you file the nail first then dab some bleaching solution (clorox) to the affected areas before applying tea tree oil. You must apply the tea tree oil frequently though as it becomes dry easily. Hope this helps...
