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.


In December of 1996, I got over my "snake oil" attitude due to my own experiences. This testimonial was the 'clincher' for me. Back in my doubting days I got food poisoning as a result of a restaurant sea food dish.

Within a 2 hours of eating I was going from both ends and just kept it up for 4 hours. Oils didn't stop it. Then Shauna read in an old "symptom guide" book (there was no such thing as Essential Oil Desk Reference we have today) to take 6 drops of DiGize in cup of warm water....swish in mouth and drink it....at that point I was so sick I would have drank anything. The nausea stopped and so did the diarrhea within a minute and I went to bed and fell off to sleep.

About 3:30 in the morning I woke up and thought to myself 'I am alive and I am not sick'. Then went into the bathroom and turned on the light. I was totally red from my feet to my head....and I knew I was going to die. I woke up Shauna and said look at me.....she smiled and then laughed and said 'dummy' what is the largest organ of your body....skin...(I really didn't think it was so funny)....but she did.

The DiGize killed the food poison inside and the only way it could get out is through my skin....I looked like I had the measles....had some itching....took 3 days to get back to normal in how I looked....but I really felt just fine.

This was the clincher that finally got me involved with Young Living....for this was the 3rd time in my life I have had food poisoning and the other 2 times took at least 2 to 4 days to get back on my feet.

We know how blessed we are to be involved with a company that does things for the right reasons and is a product and educational driven business. As time went on we found Young Living became our way of life and is our full time vocation.
