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.

Most of the time when using essential oils for any issue, topical application on the affected area or bottoms of the feet works fine - or dripping a few drops of the recommended oil under my tongue. There have been a few occasions, though, where the "usual" application method for a particular issue or situation did not work.

If DiGize under the tongue does not take care of nausea or heartburn (which it usually does), I find that putting several drops into an empty vegetable capsule and ingesting it will take care of it in a few minutes.

For a sudden-onset and very violent bout of flu, I applied DiGize to the bottoms of my feet, over the abdomen, AND dripped it under the tongue. I reapplied after each bathroom "episode". It only lasted 2 1/2 hours and then it was completely over. NO MORE FLU! (Everyone else who had it at that same time was down for 7-14 days - or longer!) This would be a wise protocol for food poisoning as well.

If vomiting, do not try to ingest a caspule of oil. Instead, rub it on the abdomen, bottoms of feet and drip it under the tongue after each "episode".

I have also noted that applying Lavender oil topically over the sinuses for allergy symptoms (which works for many people) does NOT work for me. But when I ingest 3-6 drops of Lavender Oil in an empty vegetable capsule, it takes care of a runny nose, watery eyes and/or itchy ears/throat within a few minutes.

The same thing has also happens sometimes with a headache. There are times when topical application does not work for me and I need to ingest in a capsule a few drops of those same oils that I just applied topically. (For me: Basil, Marjoram & Valor.) Most of the time that takes care of it. When this second method fails, it usually indicates the headache is lymphatic-related and I use my lymphatic drainage massage techniques to alleviate the pain.

So - if one method of oils application fails to help - try a different method before moving on to different oils.
