Alternative Treatments for Bacterial Vaginosis and Vaginal Odour


The smell of a healthy vagina is mild, slightly pungent with a pleasant and musky aroma. It definitely does not smell like a dead fish rotting or have a strong foul odor.
Poor hygiene can also be a cause of bad vaginal odor in certain women.
Bacterial vaginosis, or BV, is typically the cause of vaginal odour. Bacterial Vaginosis is a very common vaginal infection. It occurs when bacteria that normally exist in small numbers in the vagina multiply rapidly. Even though antibiotic medication is effective in up to 90% of cases, 25% of women will develop BV again within four weeks.

Listed below are some effective home remedies for feminine vaginal odour:

Remove sugar from your diet! Avoid all sugar until the active infection passes plus two weeks longer. After this, reduce your overall sugar intake by less than one-third what you are currently eating. This includes the sugar that is found in processed foods.

Clove Oil / Clove Tea
In a clinical trial, eugenol (present in clove tree oil) was as effective as prescription medicines used in the treatment of bacterial vaginosis and vaginal candidiasis.
Diluted Clove Oil with water or Clove Tea can be used as a vaginal rinse or add five drops of Clove Oil to your bath.

Please DO NOT use concentrated essential Clove oil directly on the vaginal area as it may burn!!!

Garlic as a Natural Treatment for Vaginal Odour: It is suggested that the anti-fungal property of garlic can check yeast infection, thereby treating vaginal odour. One might make a paste of fresh garlic and apply it to the vaginal area. Alternately, one may wrap some fresh garlic in cheesecloth, tie it and insert it into the vagina for some time. It is truly effective or you can say magical remedy for your vaginal infection.

Tea Tree Oil
In my opinion this is one of the strongest natural cures for BV.
Tea Tree Oil as a Natural Cure for Vaginal Odour: Experts believe that the antifungal property of tea tree oil can help in treating vaginal odour. Mix 2-3 tbsp tree tea oil in a small bowl of water. Rinse your vagina with the solution. You can also try this remedy on a tampon.

Vinegar has many valuable purposes and one being the vinegar rinse. Apple cider vinegar has been used for centuries to fight off toxins. Its natural antibacterial tendencies fight off the bad bacteria that can cause a woman to suffer from bacterial vaginosis. Mix one tablespoon of vinegar per quart of warm water – this work wonders. You can also do this to your bath.

Goldenseal is another herb that helps the immune system fight against the Bacterial Vaginosis. To treat vaginal odour take Goldenseal orally, use it as a tea and drink three times a day. Alternatively, you can buy capsules Goldenseal, and take as directed, two Goldenseal capsules every day till your smell clears off completely. Goldenseal is also available in a tincture or powder form.

Eat yogurt regularly. It acts as a Probiotic. It is a safe home remedy to treat vaginal fish odour.
You can also insert some yogurt with the help of a tampon inside your vagina to expel the fishy odour caused due to Bacterial Vaginosis. Yogurt helps balance the bacterial flora.

A traditional herb known as Tracheal has the property to eliminate toxins like bacteria or parasites from our body. To cure bacterial vaginosis take 1 teaspoon of dried tracheal and soak it into 1 cup of hot water. Drink this solution like tea before bedtime. If you don’t like its taste than try to consume 500 mg capsules daily as a natural remedy.

One of my favourites. Sage has antimicrobial and antibacterial properties and help to fight infections. Recent laboratory studies support the use of Sage to guard against infections it has demonstrated an ability to fight against several infection causing bacteria. Drinking Sage tea three times a day or rinsing the vagina with Sage tea could help against Bacterial Vaginosis and vaginal odour. To add to your bath sprinkle half a cup of Sage into a warm bath and have a long soak.
For a homebrewed Sage tea, Add two teaspoons of dried leaves to a mug of boiling water. Steep for 10 minutes, strain then drink.

Another one of my favourites. Thyme (Thymus vulgaris) is a strong killer of fungus, bacteria, mould, yeast, viruses and has potent antimicrobial properties it also relieves discharge, itching and thrush. A vaginal rinse can be made with two tablespoons of Thyme and three cups of boiling water.
Use as a vaginal rinse several times a day. You can also do this to your bath.

Besides relieving the itching and burning, Wormwood vaginal washes help restore the flora and reduce abnormal secretions.
Boil 4 tablespoons of wormwood in 1 l / 34 oz water for 5 minutes. Strain, then let it cool at body temperature. Drink this tea several times a day between meals and apply a compress moistened with tea in the vagina letting it act for 20 minutes. Repeat 2-3 times a day.

The foods that are believed to be good for certain types of bacterial infections include :
Yogurt (The plain and unflavored kind)
Mashed beans
In order to flush out the germs from the body, you need to increase your consumption of water too.

When combined with capsaicin and other substances, black pepper was also found to burn as many calories as taking a 20-minute walk.6 As an aside, black pepper also increases the bioavailability of just about all other foods — herbs and other compounds – making it a healthy choice for virtually any meal.

Bee Pollen
Bee pollen stimulates the metabolism and helps to curb appetite. Bee pollen as a snack between meals or in the evening as an appetite suppressant. Enjoy Bee pollen grains sprinkled on food, in smoothies or with fruit.

Cayenne Pepper
It is a well known spice, which provides detox support to our body which ultimately curbs the appetite. Cayenne pepper is absorbed by stomach quickly and which generally kills the hunger.
The lemon cayenne pepper diet became more famous, after it was used by singer and actress Beyonce, before the Academy awards.
Cayenne pepper helps speed up colon cleansing, which is paramount to the detoxification of the human body.

Burdock Root
Burdock root can also help to reduce cravings and hunger and thus assist in weight loss. The best way to use burdock root for weight loss is as a standard decoction: Bring water to a boil, pour in about an ounce of dried burdock root, gently simmer for ten to twenty minutes, and allow to cool. Drink between meals.

Parsley has been know for a long time to assist in weight loss, primarily due to its diuretic properties
Eating and living with herbs can bring you a lifestyle which may be more conducive to weight loss. Instead of taking a capsule, eat a handful of fresh parsley. Experiment with tasting each of your favourite herbs made up as “diet” tea. Collect dandelion leaves, mints, lettuce, whatever, and whip it up in your blender as special diet “green drink.”

Uva Ursi
Because of the cleansing effect and increased flow of urine, Uva Ursi leaf has been used by many people because of its ability to reduce bloating and water retention. This diuretic effect is very beneficial for weight loss.

Consult with your health care provider before introducing your body to any herbal remedy, especially if you are being treated for illness or you take medication for any condition. Even if you are perfectly healthy, some herbs can be toxic if you ingest too much of them.

If you care enough for the result, you will almost always attain it. – William James

Herbs for Mental Health and Trichotillomania

herbalMental Health

A Healthier Mind – The Natural Way
Trichotillomania (trik-oh-til-oh-MAY-nee-uh) is categorized as an Impulse Control Disorder and OCD are related through triggers. Herbs offer a source of relief to some people dealing with trichotillomania and Mental Health worries.

Trichotillomania, also known as Trich, is the compulsive urge to pull out (and in some cases, eat) one’s own hair leading to noticeable hair loss, distress, and social or functional impairment.

Aromatherapy practitioners and Herbalists use a combination of frankincense and myrrh to ease emotional tension, depression, anxiety and panic. Traditionally, practitioners believed in the medicinal benefits of frankincense and myrrh for mental clarity; it was said that the tree resins could open the mind and promote memory.

Bergamot is thought to mimic Diazapam which was first marketed as Valium a benzodiazepine drug. Bergamot is for peace, happiness, sleep and stress. Bergamot has the benefits of bringing peace to the nervous system in a gentle natural way. It’s commonly used for treating anxiety, panic attacks and to reduce tension, anxiety and even depression. It has sedative properties. It calms anxiety and relieves fear. It is considered a natural antidepressant and all-purpose mood enhancer.

I know youy all know this one but its got to be my personal favourite. Lavender has been used for centuries as a tonic to ease conditions of the nervous system. It is a relaxant that calms nerves, relieves fatigue, depression, migraine and tension headaches, nervous exhaustion, irritability and excitement.
Lavender act as a mild sedative on the heart and may be effective in lowering blood pressure.

Lemon Balm has been used for thousands of years as an effective calmative that is beneficial for all kinds of nervous problems, including tension headaches, migraines, neuralgia, hysteria, nervous tension, stress, anxiety, excitability, heart palpations (resulting from anxiety) and agitation. Frequently called “the calming herb,” it may be effective in treating Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorders (ADD- ADHD), easing such symptoms as inability to listen, fidgeting, inability to sustain attention and shifting from one incomplete task to another. It also appears to relax muscle tension without daytime drowsiness.
To combat anxiety and insomnia, Lemon Balm is used to calm and relax the nerves, and Lemon Balm is an old and particularly reliable treatment for relieving the feelings of melancholy and depression.

The distinctive aroma of Patchouli is a blend of earthy richness and exotic spice with a gentle sweetness. This duality in its properties is reflected in its ability to relax the body while stimulating the senses and as such it is greatly prized for its effectiveness as an antidepressant, helps relieve nervous disorders and eases psychological, emotional and anxiety issues.

Because Myrhh opens the heart chakra and is uplifting to the mind myrrh may be used to treat emotional disturbances, depression and anxiety.
Myrrh can lower blood pressure, calm breathing and act as a powerful antidepressant.

Herbal medication should be used with additional techniques to help combat anxiety. Some of these techniques include yoga, relaxation through breathing, exercise, massage, positive meditation and aromatherapy.

The healing remedies of Myrrh


Myrrh (Commiphora myrrha) was one of the most desired and sought after items in the world. Historically, it was associated with divine healing powers and considered to be more precious than gold.
It is mentioned in the Bible more than 20 times, it was used as incense in religious rituals throughout the ancient world, and it promotes spiritual awareness and is uplifting. In the Bible, Moses was said to have used oil containing myrrh to anoint priests
Myrrh was used in a purification procedure used to beautify the women who were presented before King Ahasurerus of the Medes and Persians when he was choosing a queen. This is mentioned in Esther 2:12, “…for so were the days of their purifications accomplished, to wit, six months with oil of myrrh, and six months with sweet odours, and with other things for the purifying of the women”(Rainbow Study Bible 636-637)
A few selections are
“I have perfumed by bed with myrrh, aloes, and cinnamon.” Proverbs 7:17 “I arose to open to my beloved, and my hands dripped with myrrh, my fingers with liquid myrrh, upon the handles of the bolt.” Song of Solomon 5:5

It is good for diarrhea, thrush in babies, vaginal thrush, athlete’s foot, ringworm, viral hepatitis, chapped skin, wrinkles. It is used in a lot of skin care products for its ability to smooth out wrinkles.

The Amazing Benefits Of Lavender


Charming fragrance is just the beginning of Lavender’s bountiful aromatherapy benefits. Likely the most popular and versatile of the essential oils, lavender has been used through the centuries as a natural antiseptic, antibiotic, anti-depressant sedative and de-toxifier. It is thought to provide both internal and emotional cleansing as the name itself implies—derived from the Latin lavare which means to wash.
Lavender was used by ancient Egyptians as well as Greeks and Romans.
Egyptians employed the vapor from steamed lavender plants as incense and perfume. Lavender flower heads were used in the communal baths of Rome both as an antiseptic and as a soothing fragrance. Medieval European herbalists exploited lavender water to treat head lice. Many of our ancestors in the Middle Ages placed small bundles of dried lavender in laundry for a fresh smell and moth deterrent, and in their beds, the aroma treated insomnia while warding off bed bugs. Queen Elizabeth I reportedly drank lavender tea to treat her frequent migraine headaches.

There are many ways to capture the benefits of lavender essential oil:
Diffuse or inhale it directly for aromatherapy.
Some experts recommend making an herbal tea by mixing 2 drops of lavender essential oil with 1 teaspoon of agave syrup or honey, and add it to a teacup of warm water, or adding a drop or two to juice, milk, or other cool to lukewarm foods.
Combine 4-5 drops of lavender oil with a bath gel base—a dab of shampoo, liquid body soap, or a tablespoon of olive or coconut oil (to slow the evaporation of lavender oil)—and use in a warm bath.
Place 1-2 drops of lavender essential oil on your pillow.
Massage several drops of lavender oil into your feet which easily absorb the oil and distribute it throughout your body. You can also mix a few drops of lavender with a massage oil for an overall body massage.
And what should you use lavender oil for?

Nervous System. The calming scent of lavender oil triggers a biochemical reaction in your brain to soothe stressed out, tense nerves and to lift you from a general feeling of anxiety or depression. Lavender works so well for this that you should take care not to drive or do other jobs which require heavy concentration for a while after using it. You may become too relaxed to react quickly to problems.
Stressed out, overstimulated and overtired babies benefit amazingly from a lavender oil massage (a drop of lavender oil on their blankie or teddy bear isn’t a bad idea, either). Manufacturers of baby products like bath soap, shampoo, and lotion have begun adding lavender fragrance to their products to leverage its benefits. Just be sure — if you are willing to use a typical commercial product on your little one — that the lavender is pure essential oil and not a harmful, synthetic substitute.

Migraines and other headaches can respond well to lavender oil. Rub a drop or two on your temples if you don’t have time to indulge in a bath or a cup of tea.*
Insomnia. A couple of drops of lavender oil on your pillow will often bring on a restful sleep. You might also run lavender oil in a diffuser beside your bed.

Pain Relief. This is where you’ll want a lavender oil massage. Congestion in bodily tissues due to injury, overuse, or joint problems causes pain and sometimes swelling, but lavender oil’s anti-inflammatory qualities might help to relax and relieve sore, tense muscles, sprains, backache, and general joint pain. If you care for an elderly person, try massaging his or her aches and pains with lavender oil for a loving treat.

Urinary Problems. Lavender oil stimulates urine production, helping restore hormonal balance and reducing cystitis or inflammation of the bladder and its associated cramping. (If you have problems with recurrent urinary tract infections, check out Beeyoutiful’s Cranberry Power Cleanse to stop them in their tracks.)

Respiratory Disorders. The ancient Greeks first used lavender for respiratory and throat problems. To help sooth colds, coughs, bronchitis, whooping cough, laryngitis, and even tonsillitis, diffuse lavender oil or add it to a vaporizer while applying it to your neck, chest, and back.

Skin Care. Antiseptic, antifungal ,properties make lavender oil a fragrant way to treat acne, wrinkles, psoriasis, and other skin disorders. You can rub it on straight, without diluting (Making sure to test for skin sensitivity first!), or add it to a healthful carrier like coconut, grape seed, or olive oil to spread it more easily. For eczema, you can try adding lavender oil to chamomile tea, and apply it to the affected area.
Burns, Sunburns, and Wounds heal more rapidly when treated with lavender oil because it promotes quick regeneration of skin cells and scar tissue. A famous story about lavender oil’s use on burns tells of French scientist Rene Gattefosse, whose lab experiment exploded, severely burning his arm. He had a vat of lavender oil at hand and plunged his charred limb into the solution. Doctors were astounded at how quickly the injury healed — and without the usual complicating infections!

Hair Care. Lavender oil is a fragrantly effective way to get rid of head lice. To overcome a serious infestation, coat hair and scalp with full-fat mayonnaise to smother as many lice as possible. Then add a few drops of lavender oil to your shampoo and wash well. It may take a couple of washings to get rid of the mayonnaise greasiness. After washing, massage lavender oil into the scalp and hair shafts. Once your hair is dry, have someone check it under a bright light or in sunlight to remove any nits still stuck onto the shafts of hair. You can repeat the treatment as often as necessary since lavender oil is non-toxic.

Blood Circulation. A regular lavender oil body massage has worked wonders in some individuals to lower high blood pressure. And lavender oil massages on the abdomen may also sooth menstrual cramping.
Feminine Disorders. For those who suffer from leucorrhea (a recurring, whitish discharge from the vagina) lavender oil is a gentle way to address this problem. Add lavender oil to your bath or use a drop or two in a squirt bottle of warm water consistently sprayed on the genital area after using the toilet. Be sure to dry thoroughly (use a hair dryer for best results). And for a stronger treatment, treat a small tampon coated in olive oil with a few drops of lavender oil and insert in the vagina (be sure to change it regularly!).
Digestion. Because lavender oil stimulates the production of gastric juices and bile, it is useful for treating indigestion, stomach pain, colic, flatulence, vomiting, and diarrhea. This is the time when some make a cup of lavender oil tea,* as well as for aromatherapy.

Immunity. Routine use of lavender oil is thought by some to boost your resistance to diseases. For regular use, even when you have no physical or emotional complaints: Use lavender oil as a perfume by dabbing it on your pulse points. This is far preferable to synthetic fragrances which can soak in and harm your body.

Insect Control. Mosquitoes, moths, bedbugs, and such do not like the smell of lavender. If you have meal moths in your pantry, don’t spray poison! Diffuse lavender oil near the pantry or place cotton balls soaked with a few drops of lavender oil in there instead. And please don’t use standard, toxic mothballs to preserve your wool clothing! Lavender sachets or oil-saturated cotton balls (re-soaked every week or so) provide healthy, effective moth warfare instead — and it leaves a conspicuously more pleasant scent in your clothing than mothballs!

Natural and Holistic options to cure Candida overgrowth and vaginal infections


Candida is a microorganism that is part of the yeast family. Candida and other bacteria are always present within our bodies; however, if the body has an excess amount of Candida, a yeast infection can occur.
Thrush is basically caused by a group of microscopic fungi or yeast called Candida albicans. It generally affects the vaginal area but it can also develop around dentures, feet, under the breast, lower abdomen, nail beds, and beneath skin folds.
Constantly struggling with candida overgrowth is a humiliating and frustrating experience for anyone who has to suffer through the uncomfortable symptoms of yeast infections.

Candida is the yeast organism causing thrush. Candida lives naturally on the skin, in the bowel and in the vagina. Sometimes it starts to grow rapidly and causes a rash (thrush). This growth can be triggered by some things – like sexual intercourse, taking the pill and antibiotics, pregnancy or less commonly diabetes, but often there is no obvious reason. Some women rarely, if ever, get thrush, while some women can get it several times a year. Thrush in the vagina can cause a lot of discomfort. Most often the immune system is depressed
