Treatment of Nail Fungus with Essential Oils

Nail Fungus: 

Nail fungus is typically characterized by thickening and yellowing, and usually begins as a single spot of white or yellow under a fingernail or toenail. As the fungus spreads, your nails may begin to crumble, and pain may develop. Treat nail fungus as soon as you notice it to prevent it from becoming a serious problem. See your doctor if essential oils fail to relieve symptoms.

Tea Tree Treatment: 

Tea tree essential oil is a powerful antifungal agent that has the ability to kill nail fungus rapidly. Apply 1 or 2 drops of tea tree essential oil to the affected area, making sure you coat the entire nail, the surrounding skin, and the area beneath the nail's edge. Allow the tea tree oil to penetrate, then cover it with a few drops of a carrier oil. Repeat this treatment up to 3 times a day until symptoms subside.

Clove Treatment: 

Clove essential oil is an exceptional antifungal agent. It also stops itching associated with nail fungus. Apply 1 or 2 drops of clove essential oil to the affected area, making sure that you coat the entire nail, the surrounding skin, and the area beneath the nail's edge. Allow the essential oil to penetrate, then cover it with a few drops of carrier oil. Repeat this treatment up to 3 times a day until symptoms subside.
