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.

I am a firm believer that emotions and stress cause many digestive issues. Sometimes we eat too much because of stress, sometimes we make choices we know are not healthy because of stress, and of course we can also produce more acid because of stress.

When this happens to me, I use 3 drops of DiGize essential oil blend and one drop of Peppermint essential oil on my tummy and then put a hot compress over the area. I put 2 drops of Roman Chamomile or Gentle Baby blend on the bottoms of my feet.

One of the most important steps in this process is diffusing for about 10 to 15 minutes the essential oil that I feel will instinctively work. For me, sometimes it's DiGize, sometimes it's Gentle Baby, and sometimes it's even Gentle Baby with St. Marie's Lavender in the diffuser.

Some other essential oils that help remind me to make wise choices are the Grounding blend, all the tree oils, the oils mentioned in the Bible, Goldenrod, Highest Potential, Black Pepper, and of course many more.

As always, I trust my intuition. When in doubt, I use muscle testing. I am a firm believer in trusting intuition and instincts and doing a muscle test if I don't know what essential oils will work.

To muscle test, I hold a bottle of the essential oil in my non-dominant hand and with my dominant hand push my wrist down after asking, "Will this essential oil ease my stomach?" (Or whatever else I want to ask). If my wrist gives easily, I try holding a different bottle or holding two bottles. I will know what will work when it's difficult to move my wrist.

I am thankful that these therapeutic-grade essential oils are available to me. They truly improve the quality of my life. I welcome questions, as I love to meet new people to discuss oils with. And as a professor I share information with my students all the time and welcome other ideas, knowledge, experiences, etc.
