Balance Your Garden (the One Down There)

All this talk about Sarah Palin has inspired me to address a very uncomfortable subject. Vaginal itch, the yeastie beasties or just a general feeling of imbalance down there. Don't front like you never had it. A gyno once told me that our vajay-jays are like gardens which must maintain balance. If you've ever felt like your garden of Eden is out of whack, take heed of this info!

Three little words: Tea-Tree-Oil.

Australian Aborigines have been using the leaves from Melaleuca alternifolia for an undocumented time. Around 1770 British expedition teams in Australia found comfort in the drinking tea brew from its leaves, hence the name Tea Tree.

Nevertheless, the oil from the Tea Tree has many uses. Treat cuts, scraps, nail fungus, athlete's foot, acne, dandruff, warts and insect bites to name a few. But this entry is dedicated to your "vajeans."

Before you go out and get that messy monostat, try Tea Tree oil suppositories. You can either buy them pre-packaged at a health food store (I suggest calling ahead) or online. You can also make your own by combining a very small amount of Tea Tree oil with olive oil (1:10) and dipping an unused tampon in the mix then sticking it up your pum pum for the evening. You should repeat for up to 6 days.

Ladies, it works. Keep your garden beautiful.
