Essential Oils and Kidney Stones
Kidney stones are no fun. I personally have not had any but have had friends, family and neighbors who have and the experience they tell is always the same…..painful. Kidney stones are made from salts and minerals that stick together in and form small “stones” or pebbles. The most common ways of removing kidney stones is to “pass them” or urinate them out, this is usually a big part of the painful process.
Essential oils can be used to help rid your kidney stone faster or even dissolve it. Below are a few essential oils that can be helpful when dealing with kidney stones.
- Geranium Essential Oil – Rub on the skin
- doTERRA DigestZen Essential Oil blend – either take internally or rub on skin
- Frankincense and Lemon Essential Oils – 3-5 drops of each in a capsule every 4 hours
- Basil Essential Oil can help remove the kidney stone through the urinary tract
These are suggestions, everyone is a little different when it comes to essential oils and their health. Try these out and let us know.
