Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.


Since I hit menopause, I have been getting my share of urinary tract infections (aka UTI, cystitis) about 1 to 2 times per month. They are painful and hit hard and fast. My symptoms are:

* Lower abdominal pressure
* Pain when urinating
* Needing to urinate every 15 seconds

Needless to say, these symptoms are a horrible experience for any woman to go through. The last time it hit at 10:00 PM, and I was unable to run to the urgent care facility. So I started investigating ideas that I found on Oil-Testimonials.com.

Cinnamon Bark and Nutmeg were the suggested essential oils. I did not have any capsules, so I put these oils in tea with some honey. I will say that the oils tasted nasty, but I was determined to get through this.

Then I saw at www.Oil-Testimonials.com that someone used NingXia Red juice. I had that! I started taking the 2-ounce packets twice daily. I did it for 5 days because I was afraid it would come back.

I also used some pyridium, which is a numbing agent for the urinary tract. It can be bought over the counter, and luckily I had some on hand.

I was shocked when I had my urine tested that there was no sign of the infection left in my body. I will use this regimen again if needed. NingXia Red will be my first line of defense.

Hopefully this experience helps someone else out there. Good luck!

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: menopause-(perimenopause) — "The present study indicated that lavender aromatherapy as a potential therapeutic modality could alleviate premenstrual emotional symptoms, which, at least in part, is attributable to the improvement of parasympathetic nervous system activity. This study further implies that HRV could evaluate the efficacy of aromatherapy using various fragrances to relieve premenstrual symptoms, and ultimately, support the mind and body health of women."Link
