Your kidneys are a pair of organs that do so much good for you. When they are not functioning well you are sick! Healthy kidneys convert the waste and water in your system into urine so that toxins can be eliminated. When you are trying to support your kidneys you want to look especially at the oils that have powerful detoxification qualities.
This oil is super powerful! The list of Common Primary Uses is long because its properties are antibacterial, antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and revitalizing among lots of other good things.
This oil has so many uses. It is highly antibacterial, anti-fungal, antimicrobial, antioxidant, antiviral, antiseptic.
This is one of my favorite oils! It has properties that make it a very useful oil. Along with all the properties of Thyme add anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic, supports healthy digestive function, neuroprotective properties.
As with all citrus oil, it is photo sensitive. If you apply it to your skin you should avoid direct sun light or UV light for 72 hours after use.
Over the centuries Juniper has been use as a purifier for wounds and cleanse infection. I put this oil in my bath on Sunday afternoons for those detoxification and grounding qualities.
I fell in love with geranium oil early. It is great for supporting you through hormone shifts. It is antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, anticonvulsant, mood lifting, relaxing and refreshing.
I pair this with geranium and wear it as a perfume. Along with smelling great and supporting my premenopausal hormone changes it is antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, anticonvulsant, sedative, soothing and warming.
This is an oil that is good for almost everything. It tastes delicious and is known for its detoxing qualities. There is a reason that doctors tell people who are prone to kidney stones to drink lemonade, lemon water and suggest a wedge of lemon for their tea. This oil can bring all that goodness in one drop.
Detoxification blend – Zendocrine
This is a blend that supports the endocrine system and promotes hormone balance. It comes in an oil and in capsules to make internal use easy and mess free.
The oils in it are some of the ones included in the list above: rosemary, cilantro, juniper berry, tangerine and geranium.
How to use these oils to support your kidneys:
- 1. A warm compress of these oils and a carrier oil over your kidney is a great way to target a body system. I get the oils I will be using in the compress ready along with my carrier oil and get a paper towel wet with hot water then add a drop or two of each oil with a carrier oil, then place it on the lower back. You could also use a heating pad on low or a hot water bottle to have a longer concentration of low heat.
- 2. Make a roller ball blend of the oils listed with a carrier oil and roll the oils on your lower back, in the kidney area, regularly throughout the day. My roller ball recipe includes lemongrass, Juniper berry, geranium, and clary sage.
- 3. Take the oils internally. A drop of lemon oil in your water daily will do you so much good. I suggest the Zendocrine supplement and I take theses oils in a veggie cap: lemongrass, thyme, bergamot.
- 4. Take a bath! These oils are great oils for soaking. You will smell amazing after your time in the tub. I do not put the citrus oils in my bath. I like to use florals and tree oils in my bath and then make a big glass of water and put my citrus oils in there to drink as I bathe.
Use any and all of these protocols to support your kidneys as they support you. Your kidneys are essential for your health.
