A traditional South American remedy, pau d’arco is thought to be specific for problems such as yeast infection and candidiasis - applied to the skin or taken internally.
Use 3-4 teaspoons of the herb in a quart of water (945ml) and simmer for 15 minutes. Drink up to a quart (945ml) of the decoction per day.
In tincture form take 30-60 drops up to four times a day.
Decotion and tinctures may also be applied topically for skin infections, eczema or wounds. Use as a vaginal wash (douche) or sitz bath for vaginitis or vaginal yeast infections.
