Essential Oils for Toenail Fungus
Essential oils are great for toenail fungal infections because they are natural treatments.
These oils are beginning to gain traction again in the medical, cosmetics, and health community due to their powerful abilities.
Many contain anti-bacterial properties that eliminate fungus for good. They are multi-purposed meaning they can heal more than one issue.
They are also done at home so there is no hassle with dealing with doctors or prescriptions.
The issue with many oral medications and procedures for toenail fungus is that they cost a lot of time and money. Luckily, essential oils provide an answer.

This is a newer product that has been receiving a lot of great reviews.
It has a blend of natural oils that include tea tree oil, lavender oil, and eucalyptus oil. These oils are well-known for their antiseptic, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.
One of the downsides of this product is that some people complain of the smell which this product has a very herbal smell.
Personally, I didn’t think it was that bad but I remember using it and my parents commenting saying I smelled “herbal” (lol). Application of this product is twice daily. Some people notice results as soon as one week.
I recently did a more in-depth review which has more information about this specific product that you won’t find here.VIEW PRICING ON AMAZON

Manuka oil is derived from New Zealand and is said to be more effective than tea tree oil.
The one I recommend has only ONE ingredient, that is 100% Manuka Oil. This oil aids in the eradication of toenail fungus.
Although, that is not it’s only attribute, it also cures a number of other skin related ailments.
The bottle comes with a dropper, which is perfect for applying directly to your toes.
The only real downside of manuka oil is that people complain of the smell. Compared to tea tree oil, manuka oil is definitely stinkier but effective.
Applying manuka oil twice a day or even just once daily will substantial help get rid of a nail fungus infection.
Be sure to try and apply some underneath the nail to speed up the healing process.VIEW PRICING ON AMAZON

Tea tree oil is extremely tested and used in Australia, it’s place of origin, and has worked for many people for their fungus.
You will find tea tree oil to be in a lot of ingredients for skin conditions and cosmetic products such as face washes, soaps, shampoos, and more.
Some argue that tea tree oil is not as effective as manuka oil but I personally have not seen a difference in quality.
I think the best results are to combine an OTC cream and tea tree oil.
If you are going to only use tea tree oil, I recommend applying the oil twice a day. If you are going to use tea tree oil in combination with an OTC cream, then apply the cream twice daily and the oil once (preferably at night).
Similar to manuka oil, tea tree oil comes with a dropper to drop oil directly on the nail matrix and under the nail itself.
Tea tree oil also helps with foot fungus(athlete’s foot), acne, jock itch, other fungal infections and skin irritations. Luckily, tea tree oil smells a lot better than manuka oil.VIEW PRICING ON AMAZON

People have been adding coconut oil to everything from using it to cook, to adding it to their morning coffee.
Not only can you use it for that but you can also use it to treat your toenail fungus
Coconut oil is effective in the treatment of fungus because it has fatty acids called Caprylic Acid. This characteristic allows it to break down the cell wall of the fungus.
After the breakdown of the cell wall, the fungus is vulnerable, the cells liquify and infection dissipates.
Apply a thin layer of coconut oil to the infected areas of your toes and leave it on. The great thing about using coconut oil is it is completely safe for the skin so you can apply it as often as you please.VIEW PRICING ON AMAZON

I will also note that the bottle was smaller than expected but, nonetheless, it was effective.
Using this with a combination of other products is great for getting rid of nail and skin fungus. It gets rid of the fungus on your skin surrounding the nails helps your toenail fungus from coming back.
If you’re interested in an all natural foot wash, I HIGHLY recommend this one.VIEW PRICING ON AMAZON

Natural nail gels are hard to come by but once you find one, cherish them.
I listed two different natural nail gels because there is one thing I learned after having toenail fungus for years. That’s even though one treatment/cream/lotion/gel works for someone else, doesn’t mean that it will work for me.
It’s a lot like finding a face wash that will clear your skin. Sometimes you have to try a few different products. But once you find that one, you realize it was worth it.VIEW PRICING ON AMAZON

It contains 10 simple natural ingredients, some of the most notable are peppermint, lavender, eucalyptus, coconut oil, and tea tree oil.
This product is GMO, gluten and soy free.
This cream is optimal after a foot soak or shower. After application, I recommend putting on socks because stuff tends to stick to the bottoms of your feet and also to just help keep the cream on.
Also, a little goes a long way, so one container of this will last a while.
It has an amazing peppermint smell which I prefer over the smell of cocoa butter.VIEW PRICING ON AMAZON

The Bottom Line:
When it comes to any treatments for toenail fungus, the important thing is to stay consistent and not quit.
One of the most common things is people stop treatment after about 2 weeks because they are not seeing any substantial changes. In order to see results, especially with organic cures, you have to maintain patience.
Do not wait if you have fungus. Even if it is just athlete’s foot.
I waited and it soon transformed into a monstrous fungal infection that took months to clear up.
Act today because you cannot afford to wait with nail fungal infections. If you are looking for a quick way to get rid of toenail fungal infection, be sure to checkout other articles I have written.
Also, if you have dry and cracked feet, there is a high chance you have athletes foot. I wrote an article about this to remedy this situation.
