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.


For the first time in about 15 years, I had a bladder infection. It started on a Thursday afternoon, 'out of the blue.' I started drinking Citrus Fresh and Lemon in hot water, along with diluted cranberry juice. I also took Melrose and Oregano mixed in a capsule once. I took NingXia Red (1 oz) twice. I was also taking cranberry powder in capsules.

Thursday night I was in agony, with severe cramping, getting up at least every 15 minutes to urinate with intense, burning pain, to the point that I had to bite my lip to keep from screaming. Around midnight I put a heating pad over my abdomen, but the pain continued. Each time I got up, I drank 1/3 glass of cranberry juice.

I absolutely had to go to town on Friday morning, I could barely walk but I needed more cranberry juice. When I got home the pain intensified. I checked the Essential Oil Desk Reference and took another capsule of Oregano & Melrose, this time adding a few drops of Lemongrass. A friend called & suggested I take the antibiotic formula (2 d Frankincense, 4 d Oregano, 6-8 d Thieves in a capsule). I took it once at 3 p.m. and again at 9 p.m.

Friday night was a repeat of Thursday night, but I fell asleep around 4 a.m. For two days I couldn't breathe normally from the pain, I was taking fast shallow breaths. For several hours on Friday, I was passing blood, much of the time it felt like I was passing ROCKS, the pain was so horrible. Saturday morning I awoke feeling fine. I could hardly believe it. I got up gingerly, urinated completely without pain. I took the antibiotic formula three more times throughout the day, on an empty stomach and felt fine.

I am so grateful to God for these oils and that Gary Young had a listening ear and willingness to share them.
