Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.


My 2-week-old baby was experiencing a lot of gas. Her face showed the agony, and she squirmed her body. Her tummy was hard, and she arched her back and cried. I could hear the gurgling in her stomach sometimes.

I applied DiGize essential oil blend double diluted (1 drop to 8 drops coconut oil). It helped to do a tummy massage. I firmly but slowly massaged the oil clockwise around her belly and applied to her feet as well.

After about 10 minutes she was calm and went to sleep. This was my experience several times with my newborn. I would apply this oil blend up to 3 times per day. Sometimes repeating the application after about an hour helped.

DiGize is an excellent essential oil blend, and we keep it on hand for all intestinal issues for the whole family.
