Tea Tree Oil

Tea Tree oil saved my life. I had a bad case of BV for over a year and all the medication in the world wasn't helping. I developed a severe anxiety problem from the constant embarassment of the wretched smell that followed me everywhere. One day in my desperation for a cure I read about T. T. O and took a 100 organic cotton tampon and dipped it in a small portion of water mixed with drops of T. T. O. I kid you not, within two hours the smell was gone! After paying $35 I don't know how many times to buy these random different types of medication that the doctor was giving me that didn't even work, the T. T. O that was sitting in my medicine cabinet for half a year did the trick. Before spending money you don't have try T. T. O. and if by the end of the day it's not working, then perhaps you should think about getting medication.

Bacterial Vaginosis- I've tried many ways to try to get rid of it. I gave up on medications from my physicians after I kept getting reoccurances. After trying baths of H2O2 and yogurt tampons I came across tea tree oil. If you put some on a tampon and leave it in for a few hours it seems to make the BV disappear. I would do this once a day when the symptoms are bad and once a month to keep it at bay. After doing this for a few months I've never had a reoccurance. I'm not sure if it's safe to use while pregnant though. This kills all the harmful bacteria in your vagina while leaving the good bacteria alone. I swear it's a life saver if you're dealing with BV.

Tea tree oil works for BV. The douche however, (with 5 to 15 drops) did not work for me, made things worse. Douching upsets the vaginal flora TOO MUCH

Here's what I do: 4-5 drops tea tree oil in an empty 00 gel cap, and then fill to rim with Castor oil. Stick it in as deep as it will go. I usually only have to do this overnight

Yay for tea tree oil! Like many other people, I have suffered from BV for a year and was on several different antibiotics. As soon as I stopped treatment, the infection returned. Frustrated, I began to explore alternative treatments. I tried just about everything under the sun: hydrogen peroxide, apple cider vinegar, folic acid, acidophilus, garlic; nothing worked. Having read that everyone's body is different I kept at it, but it was a difficult process to find my miracle cure. Tea tree oil changed everything. I douche with it every couple days or as soon as symptoms start appearing. After one treatment the symptoms are gone. I use 15-20 mL of water and 12 drops of tea tree oil, but start with much less oil (1 or 2 drops) and see what you can handle, because it will burn, especially if the vagina is inflamed and sore.

I have suffered from recurring BV. I always use Tea tree oil soaked tampons for a day. I've also used no rub saline solution (yes the ones for contacts) a douche. This sterile solution is safe enough for my eyes, plus it contains boric acid. I noticed a change immediately.
