Natural Home Remedy for Toenail Fungus - DIY Natural Chemical Free Anti-Fungal Toenail Treatment

Sandal season is finally here. Unfortunately if you’re feet don’t look fabulous you may be tempted to skip that cute pair of new sandals and hide your feet instead. One common problem with feet is toenail fungus. Untreated this condition will persist and can spread to unaffected, healthy nails. Over the counter topical anti-fungal toenail medicine can be expensive and it’s chemical makeup can be a bit sketchy. So I’ve come up with a natural home remedy for a toenail fungus treatment to help clear up toenail fungus and keep it from it coming back.

Keep in mind that getting rid of toenail fungus is not a quick process no matter what product you use and it’s not completely gone until your nails have grown out completely healthy and there’s nothing left of the yellow, cracked nail that preceded it. This can take two months or more depending on how quickly your nails grow.

For this natural home remedy I use neem oil for it’s highly potent anti-fungal properties. It’s also anti-viral which is why I used it in a recent recipe for a cold sore therapy lip balm. I found that it works much much faster than tea tree oil and is no where near as drying. However, as tea tree, like neem oil, is naturally anti-viral, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial I’ve also included it as an ingredient.

This toenail fungus treatment recipe is simple to make and has a long shelf life. Simply apply to affected toenails twice per day until condition clears completely and healthy nails have grown back in. I recommend using an amber glass bottle with a dropper for your anti-fungal toenail treatment.

Ingredients:

.75 oz. neem oil
1 ml tea tree oil
3 drops lavender essential oil
3 drops fir needle essential oil
3 drops peppermint essential oil

Instructions:

Combine all ingredients in a one ounce amber glass bottle with an eye dropper. Shake before each use and apply to each affected toenail morning and night until condition clears completely. Continue to use several times a week to keep toes fungus free or use a natural salve or cream with neem oil in it.

While neem oil can be applied directly to skin, I don’t recommend this for anything except your nails due to the high content of tea tree oil. However, if you want a super speedy cold sore home remedy, reduce the tea tree oil to 3 drops and apply solution directly to cold sore and it will literally almost disappear overnight.

For other natural foot treatments, be sure to also try my recipes for my natural exfoliating foot scrub and my rosemary and neem oil foot salve (to keep feet soft and fungus free!) or lanolin and neem foot salve. My neem oil foot salves are also great for those prone to infections on their feet or around toes. I gifted my grandmother, who has diabetes, some of my lanolin and neem foot salve for Christmas this past year and her doctor was amazed at how quickly it cleared up an infection she had on her foot. However, you should always consult your physician first if you have any ongoing medical issues or are pregnant or nursing. (My rosemary and neem foot salve contains comfrey which should NOT be used by pregnant women.)

If a salve isn’t to your liking, I also have a recipe for an organic neem cream as well as for a homemade neem oil soap.
