I am prone to kidney stones, which can be excruciating. One day at work, I was doubled over in pain from kidney stones. I have never felt pain like that before, and I have been through childbirth!

So I started drinking 3 to 4 drops of Lemon essential oil in a glass of water each day. It tastes wonderful and keeps my kidneys flushed out. I noticed results soon after I started drinking it in my water. It really seems to keep the kidney stones at bay.

And then I ran out of Lemon essential oil! I was frantic, because the discomfort in my kidney area came back. Obviously I cannot live without Lemon essential oil in my water. Now I make sure to order two bottles at a time now!

Supporting Scientific Study
"Many plant extracts that protect against the development of oxidative stress manifest clear antilithiasic activity [preventing the formation of or relieving the symptoms of kidney stones].... Evidence obtained to date supports a contributory role of polyphenols [present in essential oils] in the prevention of cardiovascular disease, some cancer types, and osteoporosis.... The results show an improvement of the renal function in some treated groups with an increase of diuresis and creatinine excretion due to polyphenols pretreatment. Our results clearly validate the ability of polyphenols to protect against papillary calcification of kidney tissue, consequently preventing the development of papillary calculi [kidney stones].... The collective findings to date support a protective effect of polyphenols on kidney tissue. Thus, considering that injury of papillary tissue constitutes the first step in the development of COM papillary calculi, the antioxidant action of polyphenols may contribute significantly to their antilithiasic action."Link
