Tea tree essential oil is widely known for its versatile healing benefits and countless uses. It’s used in everything from cosmetic skin products such as face washes and creams, to massage oils, household cleaners, and even detergent. The chemicals in these products can disrupt the vagina’s pH balance and induce infection and foul odor. To get rid of odors, use natural tea tree oil diluted in water as a vaginal wash.
How to Use Tea Tree Oil To Get Rid Of Vaginal Odor
- A few drops of tea tree oil
- A cup of water
What You Have To Do
1. Mix three to four drops of tea tree oil in water and use this to rinse the vaginal area.
2. You can also mix 2-3 drops of tea tree oil in a small amount of olive oil and dip a tampon in the mixture and insert the tampon. Leave it in for an hour.
How Often You Should Do This
Wash with the tea tree essential oil water daily or several times a week. As for the ‘tampon and oil’ treatment, you can repeat it several times a week.
Why This Works
Tea tree essential oil is both antibacterial and antifungal, and thus will curb the infection while fighting the odor (7).
Always do a test patch on your forearm as tea tree essential oil might not suit everybody. Tea tree essential oil is very strong and that’s why you dilute it in water or olive oil.
