If you have decided to look at alternative treatments for a yeast infection rather than using conventional medications, essential oils may be one of the options you and your alternative practitioner consider.
Essential oils include peppermint oil, oregano oil, and any other volatile oil used in the treatment of candida or yeast infections. A patient using essential oils would take about two capsules twice a day for a few months. You need to make sure you follow instructions carefully and have a proper homeopathic practitioner treat you as volatile oils can be toxic. Essential oil capsules should not be broken to release the liquid inside.
Enteric coating is important because it ensures the essential oil is released in the intestines where it is needed. Without a protective coating capsules would dissolve in the stomach acid when they reached the stomach and the contents of the capsule would be lost there.
