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.

People tend to delay dealing with pain at the onset, hoping it will disappear. Such was the scene on my husband's second day off from work (he calls it his weekend, even though it is midweek). He began feeling pain in his back but ignored it because he was so busy.

That evening he had a fever also and more pain in his groin. By the symptoms of back and then groin pain, I suggested that it could be a kidney stone moving. So we began applying essential oils for that. Things often happen in the evening.

I applied 3 drops of Lemon, 2 drops of Eucalyptus, and 1 drop of Juniper neat (undiluted) directly on the groin, followed by some V-6 Enhanced Vegetable Oil Complex every 20 minutes for the next 6 hours. My husband slept fairly well that night, and we only applied the essential oils when he awoke (about 3 times).

My husband felt so tired and had some vomiting from pain during the night. So he didn't go to work the next day, and we continued using the essential oils. I began giving him the Morphine Bomb at that time, which consisted of 5 drops each of Balsam Fir, Copaiba, and Frankincense oil.

My husband first tried it in a capsule, but that didn't stay down. So the next time I just put them in a shot of distilled water, followed by a drop of Peppermint essential oil under his tongue. He was able to keep it down fine, and he was pleased at how well it helped him manage the pain.

On Saturday morning my husband faced another day of missing work, so he decided to go to the emergency room to get a doctor's note to get back into work. He did that and was pleased when they confirmed with a scan that it was a small kidney stone. Fortunately it had passed almost all the way already!

They gave my husband an IV with pain meds, prescriptions for pain and anti-vomiting, and a screen to pee in. They also told him to make an appointment with a urologist. He didn't fill the prescriptions that day. Instead, he kept applying the essential oils.

My husband actually mowed the grass when he got home and worked a half shift the rest of that day! After he got home from work and applied essential oils, he went right to bed. He did very well on those, as he had a long night of pretty good sleep.

On Sunday my husband went to work, but after a few hours he had difficulty reading his computer screen. He thinks it was from the pain. So he came home and applied the essential oils, took the morphine bomb and went to bed again.

On Monday my husband filled his prescriptions and took them while at work (a couple of times) because he didn't feel he could apply the essential oils in the correct place often enough without taking too much time away from his work. He continued with the oils, however, when he was at home.

We went on vacation on Wednesday of that week, and my husband continued on the essential oils. That very night he passed the stone... in pieces... with no pain whatsoever! He felt so much better after that!

He has had no pain in the back or groin since, and he is very happy with the results of using the essential oils. (Total time from first pain to passing the broken up stone was a week!)

Oh, I need to add that he also took concentrated cranberry capsules, just in case to head off any infection. He continued taking the capsules for a week.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: back-pain — "We examined the evidence regarding the effect of herbal medicine on pain in people with non-specific low-back pain (LBP).... Lavender essential oil applied by acupressure appeared effective in reducing pain and improving flexibility compared to conventional treatment."Link
2.Associated topics: kidney-stones,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
