Rosemary Oil: Using rosemary oil for kidney infection August 06 2014
If you’ve ever had one, you know that a kidney infection is agonizingly painful. This type of infection usually starts with an infection of the urethra or bladder (in the form of a UTI, urinary tract infection). The kidneys then become inflamed if the infection travels all the way up to reach them. Because the kidneys play such an important role in eliminating waste from the body and blood, an infection within them means that they can’t function properly, and can be very serious if not treated quickly.
Rosemary essential oil is a great supplement to medical treatments that are often necessary in order to quickly clear a kidney infection. It is thought to impact circulation within the body, which can help to optimize efficiency in both healing and maintaining kidney function. Rosemary oil also analgesic, meaning that it has mild numbing properties, and this can be very helpful when waiting for painful symptoms to subside.
How to use rosemary oil to help ease a kidney infection:
Place 3-5 drops in 8oz of water. Drink this mixture up to 5 times daily and make sure to also maintain proper hydration.
Place a few drops in about a tablespoon of carrier oil (such as olive, coconut or jojoba oils) and rub generously onto feet. Cover with socks and wear for a few hours or overnight.
Take ½ teaspoon of undiluted rosemary oil and gently rub on the skin over the kidneys. Repeat 1-2 times daily.
Place 5-10 drops in a vapor diffuser and allow the scent to penetrate both the environment as well as your senses.
Place 5 drops of rosemary oil into 8oz of hot water or herbal tea. Drink 1-2 times daily to help maintain blood circulation and fluid intake.
