Natural remedies can be a good alternative treatment for nail fungus. Essential oils and apple cider vinegar are two popular natural remedies. Essential oils, such as tea tree oil, thyme oil and clove oil, contain similar qualities that are found in antibiotics.
Several studies were done in the 1990s with findings that support the effectiveness of the oils when treating nail fungus. Apple cider vinegar is a common home remedy for several different ailments, including toe nail fungus. However, no studies have been completed confirming that the apple cider has curing agents.
