Candida is a yeastlike fungus that is present in the
mouth, intestines, esophagus, throat and genital tract. Under normal
circumstances, it inhabits these areas and lives in balance with other
bacteria and yeast in the body. However, certain conditions (for example
a weakened immune system) can cause it to multiply and cause an infection
which travels through the bloodstream to other areas of the body.
|Suggestions for Use:
- Add ten drops
of essential oil to the bath and soak for fifteen minutes
- In the case
of Vaginitis (the result of Candida infecting the vagina) massage
the abdomen and lower back with essential oil diluted in a carrier
If you have chronic
or unusually persistant Candida infections, consult your physician.
