There is healthy bacteria that exists in your intimate area and hormonal changes, chemicals in soaps or the type of fabric that your underwear is made of can affect it. The affects can show in the form of changes in the texture, colour and smell of your vaginal discharge. This can make you uncomfortable and can be a health risk in some cases. It can lead to yeast infections, excess bacteria and viruses.
Luckily there are a lot of natural remedies that can help restore a healthy pH.
#1. Sage Infusion
Sage leaves are very beneficial to your vaginal flora and can help to keep the production of fluids in a normal range and prevent bad smells.
2 tbsp of sage leaves
2 cups of water
Bring the water to the boil and then add the sage leaves, reduce the heat and let is sit for 15 minutes before straining.
Apply the liquid to your intimate area twice a day until you bring your pH under control.
#2. Garlic tea
Garlic is very good at fighting infections as it has antibiotic and anti-inflammatory properties. It can help combat yeast infections and bad bacteria.
3 garlic cloves
2 cups of water
Crush the garlic and put them in a pan with the water to bring it to the boil, When it boils remove the pan from the heat and let it sit for 20 minutes. Strain it and then rinse your intimate area with it at night for 5 to 7 days.
#3. Natural yogurt and tea tree oil
Probiotics encourage the growth of healthy bacteria, yogurt contains high levels of probiotics and this is only helped by the anti-microbial properties of tea tree oil.
2 tbsp of plain yogurt
3 drops of tea tree oil
Mix the natural yogurt with the tea tree oil. Rub the treatment onto the outer areas of the vagina and leave it on for 20 minutes twice a day. Rinse after 20 minutes.
Apple cider vinegar is effective in controlling the bad impacts of micro-organisms that consume your healthy bacteria and vaginal flora.
½ cup of apple cider vinegar
3 cups of water
Heat the water and add the apple cider vinegar but do not let it boil. Carefully wash the outer areas of the vagina with the solution for a week.
