Polycystic Kidney Disease and Essential OilsEssential oil is a concentrated hydrophobic liquid containing volatile aroma compounds from plants. Nowadays, it has been used for medical, cosmetic, and culinary purpose. However, are essential oils good for patients with Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD)?

Actually, there is no evidence that PKD patients cannot use essential oils, and oils are absorbed by the skin and the wastes are discharged by lungs ans liver. Therefore, it does not make toxins that harm the kidneys. Some patients even take some essential oils as part of their treatments. However, every kind of essential oil has its corresponding medical function. Anyone who wants to take essential oils should ask his or her doctor’s advice. The dosage should be based on the individual’s illness condition.

For general patients with Polycystic Kidney Disease, I suggest using the following:

1. Juniper berry, Geranium, Grapefruit, Lemon. These can be taken internally in a capsule size, 3 times daily. Also can be massaged over the kidney area on back 1-2 times daily. Dilute 50:50. Then apply a warm compress.

2.Geranium. Putting a drop in your hand, then holding your hand over your nose. It will make you feel fresh.

3. Bergamot essential oil: Aromatherapy massage using bergamot essential oil is advocated for most cases of kidney pain. Mix 5 drops of the essential oil with 10 drops of olive oil or almond oil and massage gently in to the back and pelvic area. Bergamot eases pain, inflammation and swelling almost instantaneously.

4. Garlic essential oil. It will be better if you combine garlic essential oil and vitamin E. This kind of oil has the function of preventing or kill bacteria, which can enhance immunity to cleanse various toxins. Therefore, it is good for infections that are caused by Polycystic Kidney Disease.

Before you use any kind of essential oils to treat kidney cysts, you should know that it may also interact with some medicines, and overdosage of essential oil may cause side effects. What’s more, essential oils cannot be taken as a treatment for PKD, and patients need reasonable treatments. For that purpose, you can consult our experts online.
