Yeast infection or Candida infection affects mostly the vaginal area and also develop under the breasts and lower abdomen. A lot of factors other than infection could be responsible for yeast infection including menopause, hormonal changes, stress, diabetes, and use of antibiotics.

Some signs and symptoms of yeast infection includes:

    vaginal Itching
    vaginal swelling
    burning sensation while urinating
    odorless vaginal discharge

Garlic is a natural and age old remedy that has been used for centuries in treating yeast infection.

How does garlic work in treating yeast infection?

    Garlic contains antibacterial, antifungal, and antiseptic properties that fight against the yeast or fungus causing the infection.
 It contains an enzyme called allicin which has antibiotic property that cures the infection and also increases up the immune system to prevent a recurrence.

  It is a natural anti-inflammatory agent that relieves the irritation, itching, pain and other discomforts caused due to the infection.

    It restores the good bacteria, thereby maintaining a proper balance of good and bad bacteria in the body. This in turn, prevents the yeast to grow and cause this infection.

How to treat yeast infection using garlic
Method 1

Garlic alone can be used effectively to treat the infection and also helps for preventing its reoccurrence.

Peel a clove of garlic and use a needle to make holes all over the garlic.
This process will help to get the juice of garlic properly when applied on the skin.
Tie a small thread to the garlic and be sure that it should look like garlic tampon.
Insert the garlic clove as a tampon and leave it for few minutes to overnight.
Replace the garlic with a new one for every 8 – 12 hours and keep on repeating the same process till you get complete relief from the infection.

You can prepare a fresh garlic paste by crushing few garlic cloves and place it directly on the yeast affected skin areas. Wait for few minutes and rinse the area with warm water. Dry the skin thoroughly and repeat it.
On the other hand, crush a garlic clove with 2 – 3 drops of tea tree oil and wrap the mix in gauze. Place it on the affected areas for 15 – 20 minutes. Remove it and rinse with water.
You can also include garlic in your daily diet like in curries, recipes, fast food, soups, salads, fries, bread or simply consume a clove directly to prevent the infection.

Method 2: Garlic Oil, Vitamin E and Coconut Oil
Garlic oil and coconut oil have antifungal properties that kill the yeast or fungus causing infection in the body. Vitamin E oil pacifies the irritated area. So this combination is very effective in getting quick relief from the problem.

Pour in a bowl a few drops each of garlic oil, vitamin E oil and coconut oil.
Stir properly and apply this oil mixture on the yeast affected skin areas.
Gently massage it to get the oil well absorbed into the skin.
Leave it on for few minutes and wipe it off to clear the oil mix.
Wash the area with lukewarm water and dry the skin thoroughly.
Repeat the process regularly until all symptoms cease.

Method 3: Garlic Juice with Tomato and Carrot
This recipe is used to treat the vaginal yeast infection, especially in pregnant women. Hormonal imbalance is very common during pregnancy, thereby leading to yeast infection.

In a blender, put 2 – 4 peeled garlic cloves, 1 carrot, 1 stalk of celery and 2 tomatoes.
Blend it together to form a smoothie and sprinkle some salt and pepper in it.
Stir well and drink it with breakfast in every morning that helps to cure the vaginal yeast infection.

Method 4: Garlic Douche
This process is another effective way of getting rid of vaginal yeast infection.

Add 3 – 5 garlic cloves in 3 – 4 cups of water and pour this in a blender.
Blend properly to mix the cloves paste in water and pour this mix in douche applicator.
Use this mix to douche, then dry your vagina properly without moisture.
Continue doing the process for once or twice a week to get rid of the yeast candida.

Alternatively, add equal quantities of garlic, Echinacea, myrrh and calendula in an 8 oz squirt bottle and fill the remaining with water to form it as a tincture. Apply 1/2 teaspoon of this tincture on the affected areas.

Tips and Precautions

Consuming garlic cloves will cause terrible mouth odour but it works more effective in treating the infection. Make sure you brush your mouth properly after consuming garlic cloves to prevent foul breath.
If you don’t like the taste of garlic then you can simply consume garlic pills or capsules. Also, insert the pill directly into the vagina for twice a day to get rid of the infection.
Always keep your vagina clean and dry because Candida yeast loves a warm and moist environment and grows faster in moist areas.
The moment when you place the garlic in the vagina then the taste of garlic will travel up to mouth and causes bad breath.
Placing garlic for the first time in the vaginal area will cause some stinging sensation along with irritation and redness. But it would clear up the infection.
It might interact with certain medications like oral contraceptives and other medicines. So, consult your health care provider before using garlic.
