In brief: Yes
There are a number of essential oils that are anti-fungal, including tea tree, lavender, and eucalyptus.
An online search will find some good combinations of these.The key is persistence! no matter what you do, it can take months to clear it up. Soaking the nails in straight hydrogen peroxide can also be of help.
