Natural anti-fungal cream

I’ve had some success making my own anti-fungal creams. This recipe is easy to make and you can use it daily — my husband has been using it for a year now and it’s his favorite cream for that nether territory where men seem to get uncomfortable.

He takes it with him when he travels too, but one time at the airport in Mexico, the young woman at security wanted to know what it was — My husband’s Spanish is ok, but he didn’t know how to say this — “aahh, swamp-ass cream, anti-fungal cream??” — so he motioned trying to describe that it is a cream for the skin — she took it away and threw it in the trash. And it was only a small amount, the less 4 oz, and in a see-thru plastic container. He was bummed — I was too. Here is recipe #2, check here for recipe #1 Both of them work well.

Natural Anti-fungal Cream #2

1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup avocado oil (or olive oil if you can’t get avocado oil)
1/4 cup beeswax
1/4 cup shea butter
20 drops tea tree essential oil

Directions:

1. Measure the shea butter, beeswax, avocado oil, and olive oil in a mason glass jar — the type you use for canning.
2. Place the glass in a saucepan filled with water.
3. Heat over the stove until the butter melts.
4. Remove from the heat, add the tea tree oil.
5. Stir every 15 minutes or put the lid on tight and shake it every 15 minutes until is begins to solidify.
