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.


Yesterday I began experiencing the first signs of a urinary tract infection (UTI). I have not had one of these in over 15 years, so I was surprised to feel it coming on. I had been feeling sluggish and "weird" for a day or so and attributed it to being in the sun at the pool one day this week. But when the pain and pressure of the urinary tract infection started, I knew my body was trying to fight off something.

I love my essential oils, but I am still learning about what works and how. The first place I decided to check out was this website, Oil-Testimonials.com. Many people recommended using Oregano and the Thieves oil blend, so I decided I needed to give it a shot.

I took a capsule with 10 drops of Oregano in it and a second capsule with 8 drops of Thieves. That was about 4:00 pm yesterday afternoon. I took another set of capsules around 8:00 pm. Before I even went to bed at 11 pm, I was feeling less pressure and far less pain.

This morning I woke up with NO pressure and NO pain! I have continued taking the capsules however, just to be sure the infection is completely gone. I will probably take one more set of capsules tonight and see how things are going tomorrow morning.

I am SO grateful to have had these essential oils available to me! No doctor visit was necessary for this urinary tract infection!
