Diffuser and Stand

THE MOST PREVALENT YEAST INFECTION is caused by the overgrowth of Candida albicans, a yeast that is common and natural unless present in excess. When found in the mouth, it is usually called thrush whereas when found in women's privates, it is referred to as Candidiasis. Candida can occur almost anywhere, including the blood, gastrointestinal tract, or on the skin.

 

 

The main oils for treating fungal infections such as athlete's foot, toenail infections, and candidiasis are: tea tree, eucalyptus, geranium, and wild oregano. These are followed by myrrh, lemongrass, lavender, and lemon. Since some oils can be gargled and others can be applied topically, usually after significant dilution, it is important to consider questions of skin sensitivity, taste, and suitability for ingestion and absorption. Where the skin is tender, diffusing is possible and for a variety of reasons might be preferred. The illustration to the left is intended to be a bit humorous: after levitating, be sure to land with the feet apart, one on either side of the diffuser! Using a skirt, sari, bathrobe, or towel to make a sort of tent over the diffuser makes for a very pleasant experience. Please limit the treatment to 2-3 minutes, once or twice a day. The treatment "systemic" in that some vapor will be absorbed.
