I woke up with pain in my bladder area. Usually I use frankincense essential oil, a drop massaged into the lower abdomen a couple of times a day when I realize I have a bladder infection coming on. I was horrified to find my frankincense oil bottle completely empty.
On to plan B.
I poured some castor oil into my hand and massaged in into my lower abdomen. A while later (less than an hour) I realized the pain was gone.
I think I caught the bladder infection early; not sure that it would have worked so easily if the infection was more established.
