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.


After the doctor tested my urine and found I had a bladder infection, I took two course of antibiotics but the infection returned within 2 weeks of finishing the courses.

When about to begin the third course of antibiotics for the infection, I was introduced to Essential Oils. To my delight, I found that after taking 6 drops of Oregano, 6 drops of Marjoram and 3 drops of Mountain Savory in a capsule, my very painful bladder infection was quickly gone.

In fact the pain and urgency stopped within 6 hours. I continued to take the oils twice a day and sometimes replaced the Marjoram with Thyme. Rather than returning, as it had with the two previous courses of antibiotics, the infection has not returned.

I am so grateful for the oils.

1.Associated topics: urinary-tract-infection-(UTI) — "14 plant essential oils -- anise (Pimpinella anisum), bay leaves (Laurus nobilis), cinnamon bark (Cinnamomum verum), clove (Eugenia caryophyllata), fennel (Foeniculum vulgare), hop (Humulus lupulus), Istanbul oregano (Origanum vulgare subsp. hirtum), Izmir oregano (Origanum onites), mint (Mentha piperita), myrtus (Myrtus communis), orange peel (Citrus sinensis), sage (Salvia officinalis), thyme (Thymbra spicata), and Turkish oregano (Origanum minutiflorum) -- were related to inhibition of 10 bacteria (Listeria innocua, coagulase-negative staphylococci, Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus subtilis, Yersinia enterocolitica, Salmonella Enteritidis, Salmonella Typhimurium, Proteus mirabilis, Escherichia coli O157:H7, and Klebsiella oxytoca)."Link
2.Associated topics: interstitial-cystitis,urinary-tract-infection-(UTI),bladder,bladder-infection — "[Tea tree (melaleuca alternifolia)] oil has been found effective in chronic cystitis."Link
3.Associated topics: bladder — "Frankincense oil appears to distinguish cancerous from normal bladder cells and suppress cancer cell viability. Microarray and bioinformatics analysis proposed multiple pathways that can be activated by frankincense oil to induce bladder cancer cell death. Frankincense oil might represent an alternative intravesical agent for bladder cancer treatment."Link
