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 wanted to share my testimonial about how DiGize has helped my 3 horses through gas colic. They love any extra attention I can give to them. One of the things I love to do, and they enjoy is when I put a couple of drops of DiGize or ParaGize in my palms. I rub my hands together, and then pet them on their belly or the tips of their ears. They enjoy the petting, loving and attention.

When my horses have had a "tummy ache" and beginning to get colicky, I drop DiGize in their mouth, about 4 to 8 drops depending on the size of the horse, and the severity of the colic. I also take a drop or two and rub the tips of their ears with it. I was told that there is an acupressure point for colic at the tips of a horses ears.

Within a very short time they begin to pass gas and feel much better. If my horses do not show any signs of relief, then my first call is to my vet immediately. Colic is can be very serious and painful, so I would want someone to call their vet when the need is there.

I love all my Young Living oils, and DiGize is definitely in my horsey first aid kit.
