Soothing lavender douche (Killing BV)

If your vagina is inflamed, a soothing lavender essential oil douche a few times a day can really help.

If you are starting a new vaginal treatment and want to soothe your vaginal mucosa first, fast-forwarding this process with a soothing douche can work well.

Douche with warm water every four hours until your vagina is less inflamed and irritated, or as needed. Don’t overdo it!

Douching is generally not recommended but can be used as a one-off or as needed to soothe inflamed mucous membranes.

  • 4 drops lavender essential oil
  • Up to 100 ml warm water – try with 20-50ml first
  • Douche apparatus (turkey baster/syringe canister/douche)

Never apply pure/raw essential oils to your skin or vagina, and do not eat. It will burn!
