Calendula is an herb that demonstrates strong antifungal and anti-inflammatory activity when used. To treat a vaginal thrush infection, crush a few calendula leaves and apply topically to the affected skin. Repeat twice or three times every day for relief.
Where calendula leaves are not available, opt for brewing some tea made from extract. The tea is especially beneficial for treating infections caused by the candida yeast. Another option is to use calendula ointment or lotion.
