These powerful herbs can help combat yeast infections internally and conditions like tinea externally. Together, let’s explore some of nature’s most effective antifungal herbs and learn how to incorporate them into our healing routines.

Garlic (Allium sativum)

Thanks to compounds like allicin, garlic is renowned for its potent antifungal properties. Consuming raw garlic or garlic supplements can help combat fungal infections internally. Additionally, applying crushed garlic topically to affected areas can help address external fungal infections.

Oregano (Origanum vulgare)

Oregano contains carvacrol and thymol, two compounds known for their antifungal activity. Consuming oregano oil or adding fresh oregano to your meals can help fight fungal infections internally. Topical application of diluted oregano oil can also help address external fungal infections.

Tea Tree Oil (Melaleuca alternifolia)

Tea tree oil possesses powerful antifungal properties, making it a popular choice for treating fungal infections externally. Dilute tea tree oil with a carrier oil like coconut oil and apply it to affected areas to help combat fungal infections such as tinea.


Coconut Oil (Cocos nucifera)

Coconut oil contains lauric acid, which exhibits antifungal properties. Consuming  or applying it topically to affected areas can help inhibit the growth of fungi and promote healing.
