Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.
I have had chronic urinary tract infections (a.k.a. UTI, bladder infection, cystitis) for the majority of my life, off and on at times. In the past 4 years they have been on!
There is always a quick onset. Literally once I would urinate, I could tell that it would be only getting worse with burning, and I would go down quickly with fever, pain, and an immediate need for antibiotics. This has happened so often that my urologist finally said to take Macrobid antibiotic immediately whenever I would feel discomfort.
I have always followed good hygiene and have drunk plenty of water. In fact, any more water and I would float away! I was finding myself taking antibiotics monthly and then having problems with side effects from this.
I had finally found Young Living essential oils through my reflexologist. Since then I have been using Purification essential oil blend directly on my abdomen whenever I feel discomfort, followed by Thieves essential oil blend.
I can say that for 3 months I have been able to avoid the less desirable alternatives of the past, and I have never felt better! In fact, I recently got the flu, and normally I would have gotten a bladder infection too. But I did not and am thrilled to tell my story!
Essential oils have changed my life. Thank you, Young Living!
