Natural Ingredients and products for yeast infections

Address yeast infections from the comfort of your own home 

This includes individual ingredients you may already have and some of our fan favorite products that can be kept on hand for preventing and addressing yeast infections.

If you're seeking effective, safe solutions to tackle this common issue, you're in the right place. We've gathered easy-to-follow remedies that you can try from the comfort of your own home.

First Understanding Yeast Infections: Yeast infections, also known as candidiasis, can affect anyone, regardless of gender. They occur when there is an overgrowth of the Candida fungus in the body. Common symptoms include itching, burning, and discomfort in the affected area. And yes these infections are most common in the vagina and vulva. 

But fret not, as there are natural remedies that can help you find relief without having to resort to the same old "fem care solutions". Let's dive into some effective and accessible ingredients that can be found in our products. 

  1. Probiotics: Consider incorporating probiotic-rich foods or supplements into your diet.  We offer a triple threat probiotic supplement that can help restore the balance of good bacteria in your gut AND vaginal microbiome as well as improves your immune response, which is crucial for fighting yeast infections.

  2. Coconut Oil: Coconut oil is a versatile remedy known for its anti-fungal properties. Apply it topically to the affected area for soothing relief. Remember to use an organic, unrefined coconut oil for best results. Coconut MCT's are found in both our suppository (used vaginally) and salve (for the vulva). 

  3. Yogurt and Probiotic rich foods: Plain, unsweetened yogurt contains live cultures like Lactobacillus acidophilus, which can help restore your gut and vaginal pH. Other foods like kimchi and sauerkraut are beneficial as well.  

  4. Suppositories. Our certified organic and homeopathic suppositories can be used for maintenance when experiencing a "trigger", this could be your period, penetrative sex, a change in diet and more. These suppositories help balance vaginal pH and fight off yeast infections, and associated symptoms such as itching, irritation and inflammation. Also can be used for up to 14 days for acute infections. Shop suppository.
  5. Tea Tree Oil: Tea tree oil has natural antifungal properties. This is due to its active ingredient: berberine, which has been proven effective in fighting candida.  Tea tree can be found in tonic, suppository and our salve. Shop our yeast infection bundle.

  6. Dietary Adjustments: Reducing sugar and refined carbohydrate intake can help starve the yeast. Focus on a balanced, anti-inflammatory diet to support your body's natural defenses.

  7. Hygiene Practices: Ensure good personal hygiene and opt for breathable 100%  cotton underwear to prevent moisture buildup where bacteria can potentially breed.

Remember that everyone's body responds differently to remedies, so it might take some trial and error to find the solution that works best for you. Like we always say, vaginal wellness is not one size fits all. 

We know dealing with a yeast infection can be uncomfortable, but there are plenty of natural remedies to help you find relief without relying on the same old "fem-care" options that are seeing about a 50% resistance rate.

When trying out these remedies, it's essential to listen to your body and consult a healthcare professional if your symptoms persist or worsen. We hope this guide has provided you with valuable insights into managing yeast infections naturally, and remember, sexual health is part of your overall health.
