Antifungal Tea: Put 1 to 2 tablespoons of thyme, eucalyptus, or lavender in a cup, cover with 8 ounces of boiling water, and steep for 10 to 15 minutes. Strain and cool. Wash the affected area with tea tree soap, then soak a cotton ball in the tea and apply twice daily, after showering and before bed.
Bitter Orange Oil: Mix 5 drops of bitter orange oil with 25 drops of a carrier oil like castor oil and test on a small area of skin. Apply three times a day for four weeks or until the infection clears. If you see no response in a week, increase the strength to 5 drops per 20 drops carrier oil.
