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.

A few years ago when I lived on a farm in western NC we had a farmer we called Mr. Greenjeans, a colorful mountain man to be sure, who came by one evening at dusk to let me know he would be coming in and out through the night to check on one of his cows who had the "bloats". I asked what that was and he said she was "stuck up". I asked if I could make a potion for her to try.

Now I'm sure he thought at that point that I must be a witch, as those mountain people can be very superstitious, but he had a sick cow and he wanted her fixed so he agreed. I gave him a small container with DiGize, 15 drops mixed with 3 oz of olive oil which I told him to rub on her stomachs. Off he went and the next morning before I could get the coffee brewing he was at my back door.

"I don't know what that stuff was but I won't me sum." he announced..then he said "I just got it rubbed on her stomachs when she went to blowin at both ends!". From then on he consulted with me on a variety of cow maladies.

The moral of this story is that DiGize works on man and beast for gas and indigestion.
