Use Rosemary to Combat Candida - including rosemary tea recipe

The herb rosemary is native to the Mediterranean area and has antibiotic and antifungal properties. It is possible to cure candida with rosemary as candida yeast does not thrive well with rosemary and taking it regularly will be of benefit with the result being less yeast infections or oral thrush.

Rosemary is commercially available as essential oil, dried herbs and as a plant. If the climate of your region is termperate, rosemary is easy to grow.

If you prefer to use rosemary essential oil then I believe it's available at health food type stores such as Amazon or VitaminTree etc.

To benefit from essential oil, do the following:

  • Drink 2 tbsps of apple cider vinegar per day with 1 drop of rosemary essential oil added. Apple cider vinegar has the effect of alkalining the intestine. You may prefer to add your apple cider vinegar to water to drink it.
  • Drink rosemary tea three times daily.

Here is a recipe for rosemary tea that is also good if you have a cold, so keep it in your recipe arsenal.

2 x half inch long fresh ginger root slices
1 x 3 inch sprig of rosemary
1 x slice of orange
1 x clove
1/2 pint of boiled water

Allow all ingredients to steep in boiled water for five to ten minutes. Add honey to taste.


  1. People who suffer from chronic Candida know that most cures will work only for a short time. There are natural cures for Candida that will totally eliminate the problem. Most so-called cures for Candida will rid you of the discomfort for a short time. The problem with most natural cures for Candida is that they treat the localized area, the actual Candida (yeast infection). It does nothing for the underlying cause of the condition. There are lots of causes of Candida, both internal and external.
