Candida and cleansing with doTERRA essential oils

My friend, Jaime, used the following doTERRA essential oils on her five year old daughter to help her with candida, which was six times the normal amount of an adult:
  • Oregano, Melaleuca, thyme and on guard on the bottom of her feet (or half a capsule of GX Assist on the bottom of both feet) twice a day.
  • Digest Zen on her tummy to help keep her regular and keep die off under control.
  • Lemon on her liver.
  • Probiotics alternating a couple each day.
Her daughter's candida is now at healthy levels. 

For other ideas for candida in children, click on this link and scroll to bottom to the "childhood eczema protocol", which was suggested by Dr Hill for a 15 month old child with eczema and asthma, who had an overgrowth of Candida in the gut.

Essential Oils for Candida
  • melaleuca, oregano, clove, OnGuard, peppermint, thyme, lavender, eucalyptus, rosemary and Digest Zen, frankincense
Candida Cleanse
  • This is a cleanse similar to the GX Assist but using individual essential oils. It also is highly effective against Candida or yeast infections that affect many.
  • 3 to 5 drops each Cinnamon, Melaleuca, Lemon, and Oregano essential oils in a 00 size vegetable capsule (or you can put these oils on your feet, diluted on your abdomen or other areas where candida is a problem.
  • Can also take the GX Assist or DDR Prime in place of these individual oils
  • 2 capsules per day for 2 weeks, rest 2 weeks, then 1 capsule per day for 2 weeks
  • Follow with PB Assist (doTERRA`s probiotic). The PB Assist will help build up and replenish your good bacteria which is critical in keeping candida and other pathogens at bay, as well as building and keeping your immune system strong!
  • Along with using these oils and doing any type of candida cleansing it is so important that the bowels are moving so the toxins from die off can get out of the body. Candida can cause constipation and die off that can create bloating, headaches, flue like symptoms, brain fog, fear, anxiety and regressive behavior.
Candida Immune-Boosting Body Oil
  • 4 ounces Coconut oil, Thyme 3 drops, White Fir 6 drops, Geranium 6 drops, Frankincense 5 drops, Patchouli 3 drops, Myrrh 2 drops;
  • gently blend oils together and apply to areas of skin where Candida rash may be expressing or to keep immune system boosted.
Immune System Booster
  • Balance 3 drops, Oregano 2 drops, Thyme 2 drops, coconut oil 2 drops each foot, Wintergreen 2 drops, Cypress 2 drops, Basil 2 drops, Marjoram 2 drops, Peppermint 2 drops;
  • start by applying 3 drops of Frankincense to palm of hand and rub hands together and rub on bottoms of both feet and then begin applying the oils to one foot and then the other from the bottom of the toes down to the heels.
  • Rather than the four individuals oils mentioned above (i.e. cinnamon, meleleuca, oregano and lemon), you can use GX Assist. 
  • GX Assist is a proprietary combination of certified-pure-therapeutic-grade essential oils and caprylic acid that help support a healthy digestive tract by cleansing the digestive system of unwanted pathogens, bacteria, and other organisms. This is known to help in eliminating candida, numerous auto immune diseases, and digestive upset.

  • melalueca: has demonstrated strong antifungal properties, as well as antibiotic, antiparasitic, and antiviral abilities and is also known to reduce inflammation,
  • lemon: is often used for its antiseptic and antiviral properties,
  • lemongrass: demonstrates antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties,
  • peppermint: has a long history of soothing digestive problems and has strong anti-inflammatory, and antiseptic properties,
  • thyme: is highly antibacterial, as well as antifungal, and
  • Caprylic Acid: is a fatty acid naturally found in coconut milk, breast milk, and other sources. It has demonstrated antimicrobial properties against pathogens such as E. Coli, Salmonella and Strep, among others.
  • Jaime has used GX Assist on herself to help with her own candida

A friend of mine's story (read more here)
A friend of mine  has struggled with candida and recurring urinary tract infections for the last year.

Four weeks ago, she started using doTERRA essential oils, and combined with a candida cleanse, she feels that this combination is really helping her.

Her essential oil protocol (we muscle tested to find out the best oils and dosage for her needs):

  • 3 drops of On Guard
  • 4 drops of Oregano
  • 3 drops of melaleuca
The above oils were combined in a capsule and she took it 3 times a day.
Now that she's been taking it for 4 weeks, she's going to drop it down to 3 drops of each oil / oil blend and take it twice a day.

    1. I am so glad I found this website! I figure I have been suffering from Candida for the past 10 years. My doctor has diagnosed me with chronic fatigue/adrenal fatigue syndrome. When I read the symptoms of Candida I realized I had almost all of them. I am a fan of the Doterra oils and luckily I had the ones I needed on hand. I started applying Melaluca, Oregano and Digest Zen onto the bottom of my feet..alternating each oil with each application (in the morning after I shower and right before I go to bed). I also started taking Doterra's GX Assist. Within 2 days I started experiencing the "die off" symptoms which resembled "flu like" symptoms. I was so excited because I knew the oils were working. It's now day 6 of using the oils and I am feeling so much better..I can feel the brain fog lifting, depression/anxiety lifting, sleeping through the night and constipation is lessening. I know with suffering for 10 years it's going to take me a while to totally knock this but I am hopeful with the results that have already manifested themselves. I also just introduced ThreeLac into my diet and have totally cut out sweets..uuuugggg! If this gets me my life back it's worth it. These essential oils work...I promise you will see and feel them working.

      1. I see you would have done this for a few weeks now. How is it working for you? We as are desperate to find help for my daughter and self after 20 years of suffering. Would really appreciate an update or even correspondance thank you

    2. Really nice information is available like the one which i found on http://candidacuretips.com

    3. How can I muscle test to find out my needs, as referred to in above. Thank you??

    4. Hi Rebecca:

      There are a number of ways to muscle test. The video below shows one simple method, which is the one that I have been using for several years. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NGBGXoafTL0

      This is one that you can use on other people:

      In this case, for my friend, I had a general idea of which oils would be good for her to use, and then through muscle testing, I went through each one and asked if it was in her highest good for her take take the oil in question. I had her hold the bottle of essential oil close to her solar plexus when I asked the question.

      I asked if it was for highest good to take 1 drop, 2 drops, 3 drops, etc. per day, and then asked if it was in her highest good to take it once, twice, three times a day, etc.

      Hope that helps!

    5. Is this safe while pregnant?? thefoot application with pb/gx assist

      1. Hi Katie: Thyme is in GX Assist and it is not recommended for use during pregnancy (even topically), so I would not recommend it.

        PB Assist is safe during pregnancy, however.

        Some more info:

    6. Hi. Is the Zendocrine Detox Complex / Zendocrine eo blend safe to use during pregnancy?

      1. Hi Denee: According to the Modern Essentials book, Zendrocrine essential oil blend is not recommended topically or internally during pregnancy, but may be used aromatically with moderate dilution.

        The Zendocrine detox complex bottle states on it, "pregnant or nursing women should consult with a physician prior to taking supplements".
