Have you ever had an outbreak of some recurring ailment only to find that you are out of your prescription and it is Friday night with no hope of getting a refill until Monday morning?
A few years ago, I had this very thing happen and I was panicked because letting the yeast infection go for even a day meant longer on the course of meds from the doctor. I was still new to herbalism, but had a pretty big garden. After some research and a quick harvest of the Oregano and Calendula in my yard, I whipped up a batch of this Fungi Foe Salve and was amazed at the results. I have not had to refill that prescription since.
In a double boiler (or a pot nestled in a larger pot filled with a bit of water) over medium heat, add the oils and beeswax.
Stir until the beeswax melts and is fully incorporated.
Remove from the heat and allow to cool for a moment.
Add the essential oils. Stir.
Pour into clean and sterilised jars.
Apply topically to any fungal infections, yeast, rashes etc…
I have used this salve on toenail fungal outbreaks as well as on my most intimate parts. It works really well.
