Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

I am eternally grateful for DiGize, Peppermint and Thieves. Several of my extended family members had been sick w/the stomach flu (vomiting, diarrhea, body aches, etc.) Unknowingly, I was exposed just before they got sick...and so I knew my turn was a possibility.

I immediately boosted my system by taking Thieves internally, just a couple drops twice a day in my Rice Dream (tastes SO good). I also decided to take some DiGize (3 drops in a few ounces of Rice Dream once a day) to help clean my digestive tracts and aid in digestion. Although I didn't avert the flu entirely, when it did arrive I felt prepared and my version was much less severe.

My first indicator was decreased appetite. Then my stomach rumbled and I knew diarrhea was on it's way, accompanied by strong nausea. On the way to the toilet, I grabbed my Peppermint oil...put a drop on my tongue and trusted in all the good I'd been doing for my body.

I never vomited and my symptoms were never severe. I didn't feel well for about 18 hours and then bounced back very quickly. I'm grateful for my Young Living oils and how they support me through any situation.
