Against The Grain
I want to preface this one by saying, I can only post this because my son is 7 and doesn’t read my blog! So, what happens on this blog stays on this blog! But, I needed to share our natural remedy for bedwetting blues!
My seven year old son, Aaron, wets the bed. He has been to an endocrinologist and a urologist and has had an ultrasound and they have decided his bedwetting is genetic. (His dad wet the bed until he was 11 (sorry Joey))
So, he wore diapers at night (which he HATED) until I switched doctors and his new doctor put him on Desmopressin. I was weary of this pill because it STOPS your body from creating urine for 12 hours….That scares me! But, Aaron was so tired of wearing diapers, not being able to have sleep over and washing his sheets. So, I let him take the pill. It worked on and off. He stopped wearing diapers to bed but still had accidents at least twice a week. He gets so embarrassed and he just hates it! This was obviously not going to stop the bedwetting!
So, 3 months later, I get into essential oils. As Im learning about them I realize, there is an oil for EVERYTHING!
One day Aaron said, “Is there an oil for bedwetting?” OMG duh, how is that not the first thing I looked for!
I told Aaron, yes there is an oil for that! I ordered them and he anxiously awaited their arrival (he really hates this condition).
He wakes up dry! He is so excited but I know it could be just a coincidence.
Fast Forward two weeks, he has had ZERO accidents. Yes, ZERO! This has never in his life happened!
Now, he can have sleep overs (he has his own roller ball mixture so he can apply it to himself!), he doesn’t have to wear diapers, his room doesn’t smell of urine and no pills that stop the production of urine!!!!!
OMG, what a life saver!
Oh, I forgot to mention our 2 week long stint with that worthless $100 wet alarm!
**Bonus: I am saving $740 a year by switching to oils for this condition!!!**
So, how do you get your hands on these oils? You can buy them retail through Young Living or you can purchase a starter kit, which makes you a wholesale member, and buy them at wholesale prices. The oils in the starter kit are amazing and you will need them for many other things (especially if you have kids)!

I felt the need to update this post since it is just over a year old!
Aaron ended up using the Cypress Oil for about 7 months before we ran out of our second bottle. He still had his accidents here and there but they were rare! I am happy to say, he is no longer a bed wetter! He no longer uses the Cypress Oil and he no longer wets the bed. My only wish is that we discovered Essential Oils a long time ago!
