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.
