1. My 7-year-old son has always wet the bed. I started rubbing Cypress on his belly before bedtime, and after 1 week of doing that the bed wetting stopped. We've enjoyed using the oils for different things. - C.M.
2. We have seen great success with by rubbing Cypress oil over the bladder area at night for our son who is a chronic bedwetter! I chose the Cypress because I had come across a few testimonies that it had worked for other children. Thought we might as well give it a try, and sure enough, it does work!!!
3. I tried Cypress on my 7-year-old son who was still wetting the bed, 6 days later he stopped! Praise the Lord. Thank you :) - Daniel J.
