What is cystitis?

Cystitis, or inflammation of the bladder, is most often caused by bacterial infection. It is far more common in women than in men. This is because infection frequently spreads upwards from the urethra (the tube that carries urine from the bladder to the exterior of the body) and it is four to five times longer in men than in w...

What is cystitis?

Cystitis, or inflammation of the bladder, is most often caused by bacterial infection. It is far more common in women than in men. This is because infection frequently spreads upwards from the urethra (the tube that carries urine from the bladder to the exterior of the body) and it is four to five times longer in men than in women, giving the bladder greater protection.

Essential oils for cystitis

The use of essential oils at the first sign of irritation of the urethra will often prevent cystitis from developing. The most valuable oils in treating this painful and depressing condition are Bergamot, Cajeput, Eucalyptus, Lavender and Sandalwood.

Of these, the three most effective to start with are:

  • Bergamot essential oil, used externally as a local wash and in the bath (dilute a few drops in warm water to wash, or put them in the bath and soak in it for one hour)
  • Chamomile essential oil can be added to external washes, too, to ease the painful stinging and irritation. As with all use of essential oils on delicate mucous membranes, a very low dilution should be made, between half and one percent of essential oil in boiled and cooled water and the opening of the urethra swabbed with this at frequent intervals.

You can also decide to do a massage oil, by diluting Bergamot and Lavender (or Chamomile) in a carrier oil. It should then be very gently massaged over the lower abdomen. Sandalwood has been used as a urinary antiseptic in India for many centuries and is a valuable alternative to Bergamot if repeated treatment is needed.
