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.


I was new to essential oils and their uses, but decided to take the ones from my starter kit on a cruise with me. I enjoyed their scents and using them felt like a treat.

One day, mid-cruise, I woke up with the unmistakable feeling of a bladder infection - that burning, constant having to go pee feeling. We had an all-day excursion planned, and I accepted the fact that I would be miserable until I could get to the ship's doctor and get some antibiotics. For some reason I could not find my bottle of Thieves oil, so my intuition told me to try Lemon. I put 5 - 6 drops in my large water bottle and took it with me.

Later on, while on the tour bus, I realized my symptoms were gone. Though I have tried cranberry juice and supplements, I have never had a bladder infection resolve on its own before.

And just for your information - it is better to use glass water bottles, instead of plastic, when using essential oils. I was so new I hadn't learned that yet.
