4. Turmeric

This super healthy spice has powerful antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant compounds that will help to fight this infection quickly. It improves your immune system so that your body will also attack and kill off this infection more easily.  Use turmeric both internally and externally for best results. Sprinkle turmeric powder on the wound two or three times each day to speed healing and for relief of painful symptoms. Then add 1 teaspoon of turmeric powder to one cup of warm milk and drink twice a day to encourage healing from the inside. You can also try turmeric supplements after consulting with your doctor for the proper dosage.

 

5. Eucalyptus Oil

Chances are good that you have already used eucalyptus oil in cough syrups, decongestants, and mouthwashes to help kill germs and speed healing. Eucalyptus oil has anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial compounds that are very effective when fighting almost all types of bacteria, including staphylococcus. It is so powerful that eucalyptus oil works against antibiotic resistant types of bacteria! Dilute three drops of eucalyptus oil in one tablespoon of olive oil, coconut oil or almond oil, and then apply this directly on the affected area. Allow it to work for two or three hours before washing off. Repeat two or three times each day.

 

6. Garlic Oil

This herb makes every list, doesn’t it? It seems as if there is nothing garlic cannot do! Garlic is a natural antibiotic that is very effective against staph infections while it can ease the discomfort and pain that comes with these types of infections. You can put garlic oil directly on the affected area twice each day. Garlic is also good for the immune system so slightly crush two cloves of organic garlic and swallow them daily. You can also add more fresh garlic to your meals.
