Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

During my pregnancy with my 5th child, I battled kidney stones for the first time ever. The first attack came on so suddenly and violently that my husband called for an ambulance and had me rushed to the hospital. I was in more pain that I have experienced during any of my natural home births. The only thing that would relieve the pain was IV stadol, which was hard for me to accept, since I had not taken so much as an ibuprofen capsule in several years.

After that hospital stay, I studied up on kidney stones and essential oils. When the next round hit, I applied Juniper and Purification over the kidney, took several drops of Lemon oil in capsules, as well as the "morphine bomb" (5 drops each Frankincense, Idaho Balsam Fir, Copaiba in a capsule) and applied Deep Relief topically for the pain. I also filled a 16 ounce glass with the following:

1-2 ounces NingXia Red
A splash of apple cider vinegar
A splash of Lemon juice
Several drops of Lemon essential oil
Filled the rest of the way with water

I also applied a warm compress, and the episode passed within an hour. I continued to drink the above mixture throughout the day. I had one more attack which also passed quickly, using the same oils listed above.

I will also add that I have a Zyto scan, and after the last attack I scanned for Mineral Essence. My ankles had been swelling every day, which I not experienced in previous pregnancies and which I knew was most likely related to my kidneys. The day I started Mineral Essence, the swelling left and never returned.
