I get a lot of questions about how to help vaginal issues like yeast infections and bacterial vaginosis. It may or many not have something to do with the garlic as a remedy for yeast infections that I wrote a few years ago …haha

Since then, there have been so many comments and tips that I’ve discovered a remedy that works even better.

Why do I say better? Because it works just as good as a clove of garlic, but you completely avoid the garlic scent and smell.

Which, let’s face it…can be somewhat of a deterrent to both vampires and everyone else!

This remedy is called Boric Acid. These Boric Acid suppositories work by balancing out the PH levels in the lady region. Not only does it balance out by eliminating bad bacteria, but it also keeps the good bacteria happy.

It really is a win-win.

So what is boric acid?

Well…the “sciencey” definition is a weakly acid crystalline compound derived from borax, used as a mild antiseptic and in the manufacture of heat-resistant glass and enamels. It’s known as asascidium boricum, orthoboric acid, boraic acid and hydrogen borate, and it is the weaker acid derivative of boron. Its naturally occurring form is known as sassolite. It has been used throughout history as a natural cleaner – cool, right?

The easy definition being…natural antiseptic that naturally fights bugs, infections, and yeast.

These Boric Acid Suppositories are the first recommendation I go to when ladies come to me with questions about taking care of the nether regions. I definitely recommend checking out the reviews – you’ll see that they help many women. Seriously, these things are like magic.

Fun little fact: Boric acid works as a natural pesticide, too! I’ve been known to use it in my garden, or around the entryways of the house to keep the pests out.

Here are a few uses for boric acid…

1. Natural Pesticide – I love using this product in my garden to keep out pests naturally!

2. Natural Eye Wash – mixture of warm water, epsom salts, and boric acid.

3. Ear drops – A mixture of white vinegar and boric acid in small doses has been seen to benefit the ears.

4. Small/Mild Wounds – a mixture of boric acid with distilled water has been known to be used on simple wounds.

5. Yeast Infections – hence the entire reason for writing this post.

6. Bacterial Infections in the Lady Parts – yep! 🙂

7. Fleas – Many farmers use boric acid as a natural way to keep bugs, including fleas, off of their animals.

8. Detoxifying/Antioxidant – many people take boric acid internally to cleanse out the body on a regular basis.

Have you tried boric acid? I know other people reading would love to hear from more than just me about how well these work! Let us know in the comments!
