Natural Remedy Using Essential Oils for Urinary Tract Infections!
This is a testimony about two family members who experienced a negative urine culture after using essential oils for their Urinary Tract Infection (UTI). I can not tell you that every person will have the same results. The following information is a testimony and is not intended to diagnose, prescribe or treat urinary tract infections.
A urinary tract infection is caused by bacteria. It is more common in women than men because women have a shorter urethra. Some symptoms of a urinary tract infection are: frequent urge to urinate with only a small amount of urine coming out, strong smelling urine, blood in the urine which is not always visible to the naked eye and burning or stinging during urination.
The essential oil desk reference suggests that Tea tree, Juniper and Oregano are the first recommended essential oils for a urinary tract infection. Other single oils recommended include Mountain Savory, Thyme, Cistus, Rosemary and Clove. Some blends that are recommended include Di-Gize, EndoFlex, R.C., Melrose, Purification, Inspiration and Thieves. The instructions in the essential oil desk reference suggest that you apply an essential oil 1-2 times per day over the bladder followed by a warm compress to help “push” the oils into your system.
What one of my younger family members did was apply a couple of drops of RC and Juniper over her bladder twice a day followed by a warm rice bag. After 10 days of applying the essential oils she had a negative urine culture. The other family member had a very difficult bacteria that was resistant to most antibiotics. She put R. C. on her bladder up to 5 times per day and applied a raindrop over her bladder 2 times a week. She also took inner defense twice a week. She too followed the application of the essential oils with a warm rice bag. After 2 weeks her urine culture also came back negative. She indicated that her symptoms subsided after a week of applying the essential oils but continued her plan for an additional week to ensure her infection was cleared.
Praise God for these wonderful plants that provides healing support to our bodies…all praise and glory to God!
