Toenail fungus is also called as Onychomycosis.
It is a very common fungal infection. The nails affected by this infection appear cloudy and also grow thicker. Infected nails might also start to crumble and get separated from the nail bed. It can be a painful and embarrassing condition.
One need not live with this discomfort! Two of the most common cures for toenail fungi are oregano & tea tree oils.

Tea tree oil, derived from the leaves of the native Australian Melaleuca alternifolia tree contains antiseptic and anti-fungal compounds that are a very effective skin disinfectant.
Tea tree oil contains terpenoids, which have been found to have antiseptic and antifungal activity. The compound terpinen-4-ol is the most abundant and is thought to be responsible for most of tea tree oil's antimicrobial activity.

Organic Tea Tree & Oregano oils along with jojoba and grapeseed oils are the sole ingredients in Josiah’s Oils Nail Serum. Our nail serum and be applied 2 to 3 times per day on the infected
I note that there are a few oral prescription drugs can help cure nail fungus but have serious side effects -like liver damage and seizures. They can also be quite costly.
Always check with your doctor and be aware that these oils should never be ingested.
