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 noticed that my female cat was straining and looking uncomfortable. It was obvious that she had her usual spring urinary tract issues. Her urinary tract was almost completely closed and she had blood in her urine.

I have read that female cats who are spayed too early can have repeated urinary problems, so this may be her issue. She had been eating normally and drinking water so it was a sudden surprise flare-up. I did not want to expose her to even one round of antibiotics that had previously stressed her digestive system.

I had successfully helped her with essential oils in conjunction with antibiotics before, so I wanted to try to support her immune system with essential oils again.

When I have used antibiotics on her in the past, it can take 24 to 36 hours before she can comfortably urinate again. That means potentially a day and half of no sleep while she is in pain and straining to urinate.

So I applied Helichrysum oil to the tips of her ears, the Thieves oil blend to her paw pads, and also petted her with the ImmuPower and Raven oil blends.

Within a half hour, her urinary tract had opened and she laid down to relax and take a nap. Within 24 hours, she was urinating normally. I monitored how she was feeling, touching the warmth of her ears.

For the next 48 hours, I petted her with Thieves, ImmuPower and Raven, rotating one oil or oil blend each hour. Every three or four hours, I re-applied Helichrysum oil to her ears to provide continued support to her immune system.
I opened a bottle of Mountain Savory oil and put it on a table next to my couch. My cat lay down on the arm of the couch and inhaled the oil, about 10 inches from her nose, for the next twenty minutes.

After that, I put a couple drops of Mountain Savory on a cotton ball and put the cotton ball near her favorite napping place. I reapplied the oil to the cotton ball every 48 hours.

After 48 hours, I reduced the frequency of oil application to my cat, alternating Thieves, ImmuPower and Raven every two to three hours and Helichrysum every six hours. If her ears felt like they were getting too hot again, I would apply all four oils again at the same time.

After four days, I decreased the oil application to once every eight hours; after six days, down to once every twelve hours.

Finally, after eight days, I stopped using the oils and watched her carefully to make sure she stayed healthy.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: antibiotic — "As proven in vitro, essential oils [Eucalyptus, Melaleuca Alternifolia, Thyme, Lavender, Lemon, Lemongrass, Cinnamon, Grapefruit, Clove, Sandalwood, Peppermint, Sage] represent a cheap and effective antiseptic topical treatment option even for antibiotic-resistant strains [such] as MRSA and antimycotic [antifungal]-resistant Candida species."Link
2.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
3.Associated topics: urinary-tract-infection-(UTI) — "[Tea tree (melaleuca alternifolia)] oil has been found effective in chronic cystitis."Link
4.Associated topics: immune-system — "DHEA [a component of PD 80/20], an androstene hormone [precursor to estrogen, testosterone, progesterone, cortisone, and other hormones], has been shown to possess a wide range of beneficial biological effects mainly attributed to immune system modulation.... thus leading to beneficial effects in diverse human diseases including resistance to infection, neuroprotection, wound healing, diabetes, hepatic injury, cardiovascular disease, and cancer."Link
5.Associated topics: immune-system — "Immunomodulatory activity of frankincense oil: Biologically, the oil exhibited a strong immunostimulant activity (90% lymphocyte transformation) when assessed by a lymphocyte proliferation assay."Link
6.Associated topics: immune-system — "Anti-inflammatory, spasmolytic [muscle spasms], antimicrobial, antioxidant, carminative [flatulence] and immunomodulatory properties of caraway suggest that it might exert beneficial effects on inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).... CHE and CEO [caraway essential oil] at all doses tested were effective in reducing colon tissue lesions and colitis indices and the efficacy was nearly the same when different doses of plant fractions were administered p.o. or i.p..... These data suggest that caraway fractions are both effective and possess anti-colitic activity irrespective of the dose and route of administration."Link
7.Associated topics: immune-system — "These results suggest that the volatile oil of ginger influences both cell-mediated immune response and nonspecific proliferation of T lymphocyte, and may exert beneficial effects in a number of clinical conditions, such as chronic inflammation and autoimmune diseases."Link
8.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), [pepper]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... four Gram-positive bacteria of Listeria innocua, coagulase-negative staphylococci, Staphylococcus aureus, and Bacillus subtilis, and six Gram-negative bacteria of Yersinia enterocolitica [causes Yersiniosis], Salmonella Enteritidis, Salmonella Typhimurium, Proteus mirabilis [causes UTIs], Escherichia coli O157:H7, and Klebsiella oxytoca.... [R]elative to anise essential oil, the essential oils of oreganos, cinnamon, and thyme had consistently high inhibitory effects.... [B]eta-bisabolene (Turkish and Istanbul oreganos), and terpinolene (thyme) were found to be the most inhibitory compounds regardless of the bacteria type tested."Link
