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 with 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 exposure 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 alone.

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. I applied Helichrysum oil to the tips of her ears, Thieves oil to her paw pads, and petted her with ImmuPower, then 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 feeling 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. After eight days, I stopped using the oils and watched her carefully to make sure she stayed healthy.
