3 Jade Egg Natural Home Remedies for Treating Yeast Infections
What is a yeast infection?
Vaginal yeast infections, also known as candidiasis, are a common female condition. A healthy vagina has bacteria and some yeast cells. But when the balance of bacteria and yeast changes, the yeast cells can multiply. This causes intense itching, swelling, and irritation.
Using natural remedies coated over a Jade Egg can relieve symptoms within a few days.
Vaginal yeast infections aren’t considered a sexually transmitted infection (STI). Sexual contact can spread it and it’s possible for a man to develop a yeast infection, but women who aren’t sexually active can also get them. Once you get a yeast infection, you’re also more likely to get another one.
What are the symptoms of a vaginal yeast infection?
Vaginal yeast infections have a common set of symptoms, such as:
- Vaginal itching
- Swelling around the vagina
- Burning during urination or sex
- Pain during sex
- Whitish gray and/or clumpy vaginal discharge sometimes described as cottage cheese-like
Usually the length of time your yeast infection is left untreated has a direct impact on how severe your symptoms may become.
What causes vaginal yeast infections?
The fungus Candida is a naturally occurring microorganism in the vaginal area. Lactobacillus bacteria keeps its growth in check. But if there’s an imbalance in your system, these bacteria won’t work effectively. This leads to an overgrowth of yeast, which causes the symptoms of vaginal yeast infections.
Several factors can cause a yeast infection, including:
- Antibiotics (they lower the amount of Lactobacillus, or good bacteria, in the vagina)
- Weak immune system
- Poor eating habits, including a lot of sugary foods
- Hormonal imbalance near your menstrual cycle
- Lack of sleep
- Oral contraceptives
- Declining estrogen levels after menopause
Home remedies for treating yeast infection
There are many simple home remedies that can help to eliminate the infection. For a long time, many home remedies have been prescribed by using a tampon for insertion of these alternative medicines. As we’ve learned in recent years that tampons are not as good for the body as once believed, perhaps try using your Jade Egg by coating the egg in chosen remedy medicine then inserting twice a day. If symptoms persist, it’s best to chat with your doctor.
A few remedies are:
Lactobacillus acidophilus, a “friendly” strain of bacteria present in yogurt, can control the growth of infection in the body. For treating a yeast infection, only use organic, plain, and unsweetened yogurt.
You can externally apply plain yogurt on the affected skin area and let it sit for at least 20 to 30 minutes, or preferably overnight. This will help relieve the itching sensation. See Sleeping with a Jade Egg.
For a vaginal yeast infection, lavishly coat your Jade Egg in yogurt and then insert it in the vagina for two hours. Do this twice a day.
Also include yogurt in your diet plan.
Tea Tree Oil
Tea tree oil has powerful and effective natural anti-fungal properties that can help with home treatment of yeast infections. Pregnant women should not use this remedy, as some of the properties present in tea tree oil have said to be harmful to the child.
For a vaginal yeast infection, place a few drops of tea tree oil on your Yoni Egg and insert it into your vagina for two to three hours. Repeat the process twice daily.
Myrrh is a resin, or sap-like substance and is most commonly known as one of the gifts (along with gold and frankincense) the three Wise Men brought to Jesus in the stories of the bible.
Myrrh oil is still as commonly used today as it was in biblical times a remedy for a variety of ailments due to its potent antioxidant activity and potential as a cancer treatment. It has also been shown to be effective in fighting certain types of parasitic infections.
To use Myrrh Oil to treat yeast infections, dilute by adding a few drops to a carrier oil such as almond oil or coconut oil. Alternatively, Myrrh oil can be combined also with yoghurt treatment by adding a few drops to a teaspoon of yoghurt.
Coat Jade Egg with healing mixture and use 2 times a day.
Which Yoni Egg should I use?
While any authentic Yoni Egg can act like a suppository for the medicine, Rose Quartz is the egg with the highest healing vibration because it is renowned as the ‘Love’ egg – so this is the egg we recommend.
Our Groovy Rose Quartz Yoni Eggs are usually for extra stimulation of sexual energy, however in treating yeast infections the grooves in the eggs help to capture and hold the medicine while the egg is being inserted.
Caring for your Jade Egg
I’m sure it goes without saying that its important to be diligent about cleanliness when using your Jade Egg to treat a yeast infection. Use a gentle exfoliant or manicure nail brush to wash surface between uses.
Jade Eggs can also pick up negative energies from the infection. Once the infection has cleared take time to rid the egg of low vibration by energetically cleanse your yoni eggs and returning your egg’s vibration to it’s positive and natural state. – See article on 6 ways to energetically cleanse your yoni eggs.
