Many women experience bladder infection as a painful, burning condition, finding that drugstore remedies fail to work, in the long term, if at all.
Here’s a DIY remedy for cystitis that works, because the following Essential Oils are anti-bacterial, and have been found to be particularly effective against bladder infections.
The oils penetrate all the layers of the skin, and are absorbed right into the bladder itself, where they perform their antibiotic work, yet without the awful side effects associated with drugstore antibiotics.
DIY AROMATHERAPY CYSTITIS RECIPE
5 drops Cedarwood Essential Oil
5 drops Frankincense Essential Oil
10 drops Lavender Essential Oil
20 drops Tea Tree Essential Oil
Blend the above drops into 4 oz Almond Body Butter or 4 oz Shea Body Butter.
Stir thoroughly, for several minutes, using a knife.
Three times a day, apply this mixture to the pubic area, lower abdomen, and kidney areas (arch of your back).
Then lie down, and apply a hot water bottle to the pubic and lower abdomen areas. (Use a protective cotton cloth on your skin.) Lie for at least 15 minutes.
The formula can also be inserted into the vaginal canal, twice a day.
DIY BLADDER INFECTION NATURAL REMEDY
Fill a large tub with warm water. The tub should be big enough for you to sit in it, and have the water cover your pubic area. Your legs will hang outside the tub.
Add 8 drops of Tea Tree Essential Oil.
Soak in this ‘sitz bath’ for 15 minutes, twice a day.
HOW DO I STOP REPEATED ATTACKS OF CYSTITIS?
If you have repeated attacks of cystitis, you should consider doing ‘The Candida Diet.’
This diet counteracts the negative effects of having taken antibiotics, which, ironically, can cause further bladder infections.
