Sometimes, no matter what steps we take to protect ourselves, our body simply faces a medical crisis. For millions of people, developing kidney stones and having to deal with the severe pain they cause is an all-too-real situation that needs to be managed quickly and properly.
Reducing kidney stone development is important, and something that can be done in a variety of ways. You should always talk to your health care professional first about your situation, but it’s worth knowing there are several essential oils out there which can help reduce kidney stone frequency and severity and thus help you improve your quality of life.
There are three ways to use essential oils to help reduce kidney stones.
1. Topically - The first method is to apply the essential oil directly to the kidney area. It's very important to first dilute your essential oils with a carrier oil suck as virgin coconut or jojoba oil. Use about 3-5 ml to every 100 ml of carrier oil. Use your hands to massage this oil into the skin deeply making sure the skin absorbs the oil.
2. Inhalation - Using a nebulizing diffuser is the best way to get essential oils into the bloodstream as fast and safe as possible. A nebulizer releases pure essential oils into the air quickly without diluting with water or altering the composition of the oils with heat.
3. Ingestion could help by providing direct treatment to the body’s bloodstream, bringing their healing compounds to the urinary tract quickly, but we cannot comment on the specific regimen as this is a task for a qualified professional. Ingestion of essential oils is a topic not covered here nor condoned. Those who feel ingestion is right for them should make sure to do it under the supervision of someone experienced.
