Cystitis, a painful condition where the bladder walls become inflamed, is often mistaken as a UTI (Urinary Tract Infection). So cystitis, UTI and healing essential oils can go hand-in-hand to relieve pain, inflammation, tension, and stress.*
Especially relevant is that symptoms of cystitis/UTI can be many, and also debilitating. Consequently, they can affect your social life, exercise, sleep, and even your ability to work. Women are more prone to urinary tract infections than men, due to their shorter urethras.
Note: If there is blood or pus in your urine, see a doctor immediately.
