Over 8 million people visit their doctors each year due to sudden and frequent need to urinate, burning sensation in the urethra and bladder and additional symptoms of a urinary tract infection (UTI) such as, fever, chills, back pain, and even blood in the urine. UTIs are actually the second most popular reason people visit their healthcare professionals and range from young children to seniors, in both genders (though women get them much more than men). There are many essential oils that can be used to deal with a UTI and prevention methods everyone should practice.
Urinary tract infections (UTIs) can occur in any part of the urinary tract from the urethra to kidneys. Most UTIs occur in the lower part including the urethra and the bladder. Women have a greater chance of getting a urinary tract infection compared to men. If the infection is limited to just the bladder, it is not serious but can be uncomfortable. The condition is commonly treated with prescription of antibiotics. Also, there are essential oils to ease UTI symptoms that can be used instead or along with the medical treatments for the disorder.
These essential oils can be done as a compress placed over the bladder, which is in the pelvic area. The following essential oils can be used simply and effectively for bladder infections or cystitis:
This is an antiseptic type of oil that treats the infectious component of the condition. It can be used in both the prevention and management of bladder infections and cystitis through its anti-infective properties. It can soothe inflammation when used in the bath and can help stop the vaginal itching that occurs with antibiotic use. Add 4-5 drops in bath water for a relaxing soak. Alternatively, mix 2-3 drops of bergamot oil with a carrier oil and massage over the bladder area.

You should use the lemon-scented variety of eucalyptus because it is soothing and healing, and can treat bladder infectionsnaturally. It is also a good treatment for thrush, which can occur as a result of taking antibiotics for the UTI. Mix 2-3 drops with other essential oils for UTI and apply on the bladder region. Continue to massage until symptoms settle.

The scientific name for rosewood is Aniba rosaedora. This is an essential oil that can be used alone or as a blend with others, including lavender and cajeput. The combination treatments can be used to treat any type of urinary tract infection, including bladder infections and cystitis.
The scientific name for this essential oil is Salvia officinalis. It is one of the antibacterial essential oils for UTI. It is extremely effective against the most common organism in UTIs, which is E. coli, and is partially effective against other common bacteria that cause urinary tract infections. It can be used as a compress or massage oil.
This is a great remedy for UTIs when used in a bath or as a compress. Some of the essential oil drops can be put into a ginger tea, which helps sooth symptoms of urinary tract infections. Try about 5 drops initially, increasing the number of drops you use if the UTI symptoms are particularly severe.
This essential oil has fungicidal, bactericidal, and anti-viral properties so it is especially effective against all types of infections, including UTIs. It can be used as part of a bath or as a massage oil. It can also be used in aromatherapy for the management of all types of urinary tract infections.
Lemon essential oil:
Add a drop of lemon essential oil to each serving of water. More potent than lemon juice, lemon essential oil is a purifier for the body and can assist in your bladder infection home remedy efforts.
Having said that, essential oils are a viable option for many conditions. Anyone interested in maintaining their family’s well-being should regard them as just another weapon in the medical arsenal. Learn about them with an open mind, but maintain a healthy skepticism about “cure-all” claims.
Warning: UTIs that last longer than two days may require medical intervention. Untreated UTIs can infect the kidneys and turn into a much more serious problem.In any case, never automedicate and always ask advice to a licensed physician.
