Young Living Therapeutic Grade™ cedarwood essential oil (cedrus atlantica)
I have been prone to getting UTI’s in stressful situations. If you don’t know what a UTI is, you probably don’t have to worry about them! I have always kept them at bay with a morning dose of cranberry. But with the recent medical emergency that Herb and I had with his mom in OH, the stress caused me to sense that a UTI was coming on.
Since I had my essential oils with me to use with Herb’s mom, I pulled out my Cedarwood and massaged it into the lower back area between my ribs and my pelvis right over the kidney area. I also massaged it into my stomach for good measure. The next morning I woke up.
