Oh No, My toes are showing!

Toe Nail Fungus is a common problem for a lot of people.  According to a staff member at the Mayo Clinic... "An infection of nail fungus occurs when fungi infect one or more of your nails. A nail fungal infection may begin as a white or yellow spot under the tip of your fingernail or toenail. As the nail fungus spreads deeper into your nail, it may cause your nail to discolor, thicken and develop crumbling edges — an unsightly and potentially painful problem."

Nail fungus can be difficult to treat enough with all the different types of medication on the market.  Even after you manage to rid yourself of the fungus, there is a chance the infection will recur.  If you are one of those people suffering with toe nail fungus here is a simple remedy that you may find interesting.  Just swab the affected toe nails with Lavender and Tea Tree essential oils.  Simple isn't it?
