Herbal treatment is aimed at treating an active attack of thrush and also working to prevent future attacks.

  1. Tea tree oil (Melaleuca alternifolia) - Research has been undertaken into the effects of tea tree on candida and other vaginal infection and it has been shown to be an excellent anti-fungal and antibacterial agent herb.
  2. Echinacea - Echinacea is one of the best herbs for increasing immune system function. One study showed that women suffering from recurrent thrush, who were given echinacea, had a 43 percent reduction in the number of attacks.
