Instant Pot DUO60 Review

I received an Instant Pot for the sole purpose of this review
Being a mother to 3 young children, makes it really hard to have dinner on the table sometimes. Any item that makes my life and especially mealtimes easier is an item for me. I'm a huge fan of a slow cooker, used one probably at least twice a week every week for the past 4-5 years at least. But when I really found the Instant Pot, I was instantly hooked. HAD to have it. It's like a slow cooker, but fast. Call it a fast cooker if you want. But it's AWESOME!!

Comes with a manual and a Cooker Guide for times and such

Cure a Vaginal Yeast Infection NATURALLY!

This post contains affiliate links, this help fund my blog and bring you more posts like this!

If you're a woman there's a pretty good chance you've suffered at least one vaginal yeast infection in your life. Especially during pregnancy.

They aren't fun.

I've recently just had my 2nd one. My first was when I was pregnant with my daughter almost 8 years ago (I've had 2 pregnancies since then, so have been fortunate).

But this one was relentless and would not go away. I tried over the counter creams and it would clear up, and then come right back. So I figured I'd stick with my 3 most favorite natural ingredients in my house, ones I KNOW have antibacterial and antifungal properties. Wanted to give it a try and what do you know, after just 2 treatments the infection was gone for good, and hasn't come back!

1 teaspoon Extra Virgin Coconut Oil 
5-6 drops Tea Tree Oil
5-6 drops Lavender Oil

These are just the brands I used, there are a million brands to choose from! 

Grab 1tsp coconut oil and put into a small container, add your drops of oils and stir it around. Make sure all oil is on your spoon for easier removal later. Place in the fridge or freezer for a couple minutes until it hardens again. 
Then VERY QUICKLY, pull it out of the fridge/freezer, scoop the mixture off the spoon and place inside the vagina. It will be cold and will feel amazing and cure the itch almost immediately. Use a cloth pad (these oils are unlikely to stain) or toilet paper to absorb the oil that will leak out for the next couple of hours.
Here's how it looks when solid

I did it once mid afternoon and again before bed and by the time I woke up I was itch free and the infection was totally gone! I then did one more treatment in the morning just to ensure it was gone.

So if you're a frequent sufferer, bookmark this for the next time you have an infection!! All of these ingredients are easy to find and easily accessible.
