Using Tea Tree Oil for a Vaginal Yeast Infection

Using Tea Tree Oil for a Vaginal Yeast Infection

Tea tree oil is obtained from the leaves of the tea tree. When diluted, it can be used to treat different skin conditions, such as acne, ringworm and fungal infections. Due to its antiseptic quality it can be applied on cuts and burns to speed up the healing.


Recent studies show that tea tree oil has got potent antifungal properties and can be successfully used to treat vaginal yeast infections. It can kill Candida species susceptible to fluconazole, but also those that are Fluconazole-resistant and therefore more difficult to treat.


If you want to make your own tea tree oil suppositories, follow my recipe:


  • Mix 5 tablespoons of coconut oil with a few drops of tea tree oil and lavender oil



  • Leave it in the fridge until solid


  • Use one suppository overnight until your symptoms disappear. If you see no improvement within 3/4 days, go to sea your doctor.


  • Make sure you use a pad at night, in case the suppository leaks


If you want to treat your vaginal yeast infections naturally, you should also try tea tree suppositories, such as Femallay Tea Tree Oil Suppositories. I like the fact that they’ve got only natural ingredients:


  • Tea Tree Essential OilUsing tea tree oil for vaginal yeast infection


  • Coconut Oil


  • Illipe Butter


  • Carnauba Wax


Each box contains 7 suppositories, and it comes with one applicator. You should use one suppository overnight for 7 consecutive days to get rid of your symptoms. According to reviews, the suppositories are very effective, but they can get messy so definitely use a pantyliner.




Other Benefits of Tea Tree Suppositories


Apart from excellent antifungal qualities, tea tree suppositories can also treat:


  • Bacterial VaginosisTea tree oil for vaginal yeast infection


  • Vaginal dryness


  • Vaginal odor


  • Vaginal irritations


  • And vaginal pH imbalances


Using tea tree oil suppositories is a natural way of preventing vaginal discomfort, so you could use it once a week as a part of maintaining vaginal hygiene.


Are Tea Tree Suppositories Safe?

Tea tree can cause an allergic reaction. Straight after inserting a suppository, you may feel a burning sensation. It’s normal, and it should subside within a few minutes. If it doesn’t subside, or gets worse, it could mean you’ve suffered an allergic reaction and shouldn’t use tea tree suppositories in future.


Tea tree oil should never be consumed or applied undiluted. One of the best carrier oils to use is coconut oil because it’s also antifungal and rarely produces allergic reactions.




Tea tree oil is a safe way of maintaining vaginal health and getting rid of vaginal yeast infections. You can either make your own tea tree oil suppositories or buy them on Amazon. Either way, it should provide a much needed relief from symptoms in a relatively short time.

  • Hi, I used tea tree oil suppositories for a yeast infection and it worked fine. The only problem is a stinging/burning sensation at the beginning. It’s very unpleasant. Could you recommend equally effective natural suppositories that don’t cause any side effects?

    • Hi Melody, unfortunately tea tree oil suppositories can sometimes cause a burning sensation or even an allergic reaction. Try homemade aloe vera suppositories instead, I think they are the best and the most effective when it comes to getting rid of vaginal yeast infections naturally.
