    This particular home made anti-fungal cream really does work; better than what you might buy in the tube. I know whereof I speak–having participated in athletics all my life–from one weight room to another, public pools, in and out of locker rooms–one is likely to contact a nasty microbe. Tea tree oil alone is too strong–and it will burn in the worst way, for some applications. Trust the shea butter concoction; it really works–where hubby might need it most, form time to time.

    Oh my gosh, thank you so much! I have been going to the dermatologist for the past six years, and no ointment seems to help. This has started to work its magic after a routine. Thanks!

    will this work on yeast infections on the skin?

      Studies have shown that tea tree oil is effective against the yeast infections on the skin — the candida yeast infections. http://jac.oxfordjournals.org/content/53/6/1081.short

      So it’s worth a try. Yeast is very stubborn, like most fungi — it often takes about two weeks. You can use the cream several times a day though.

    At 35 yrs old I just got diagnosed with my first bout of jock rash, yay me. I’ll be trying this anti fungal cream just as soon as I can get the ingredients together. I’m not a stranger to natural remedies and your recipe looks legit. Thanks for posting it, and I like your other recipes too. Two thumbs up!

    I just got my first yeast infection on my manhood. It’s very red and irritated. Is natural cocoa butter good enough to get rid of it or should I get a combination of one of the above?

      cocoa butter alone does not have anti-yeast or anti-fungal properties — so best to mix up a batch with the essential oils. use the one with beeswax and shea, twice a day until it is better, then use it daily.
