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.


We have a 14 year old black lab/husky mix who at the age of 12 started getting a "leaky bladder". Our vet said they could perform surgery and she would probably need to be on pills for the rest of her life.

We weren't comfortable with those options so we looked in a few books and decided to try putting Copaiba in her food and on her belly. With in a few days, we were not cleaning up pee spots on the floor!

After a couple months of always putting the oil in her food, we cut back to every other day, to every 3-4 days and we now put the oil on her and in her food a couple times a month.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: bladder — "[Tea tree (melaleuca alternifolia)] oil has been found effective in chronic cystitis."Link
2.Associated topics: dogs — "Idiopathic vestibular syndrome is the most common cause of peripheral vestibular disease in dogs and, despite its dramatic clinical presentation, can improve without intervention."Link
3.Associated topics: kidneys — "Many plant extracts that protect against the development of oxidative stress manifest clear antilithiasic activity [preventing the formation of or relieving the symptoms of kidney stones].... Evidence obtained to date supports a contributory role of polyphenols [present in essential oils] in the prevention of cardiovascular disease, some cancer types, and osteoporosis.... The results show an improvement of the renal function in some treated groups with an increase of diuresis and creatinine excretion due to polyphenols pretreatment. Our results clearly validate the ability of polyphenols to protect against papillary calcification of kidney tissue, consequently preventing the development of papillary calculi [kidney stones].... The collective findings to date support a protective effect of polyphenols on kidney tissue. Thus, considering that injury of papillary tissue constitutes the first step in the development of COM papillary calculi, the antioxidant action of polyphenols may contribute significantly to their antilithiasic action."Link
4.Associated topics: dogs — "[T]opical fatty acids and essential oils are a useful treatment option for canine atopic dermatitis."Link
5.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
