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 have had Crohn's disease for 8 years. I've been treating it naturally using no pharmaceuticals for the last 2.5 years. I had no flares at all while pregnant last year and in fact felt great. But a few weeks after I gave birth, I had Crohn's flares after I ate most anything. My flares included spasms in the lower intestinal area, gas pain, some nausea, and constipation.

I started ingesting 3 drops of the DiGize essential oil blend before each meal and rubbing some on my belly. Within a day I started noticing I didn't have any intestinal pain. After 3 to 4 days I was feeling great after a meal and having regular bowel movements. I'm so blessed to have this oil!

Tarragon is the first ingredient, which I've since learned is an antispasmodic. All of the other ingredients are great for digestion.

Any time my husband or friends have indigestion, nausea, diarrhea, heartburn, constipation, or gas, I just have them take a few drops and/or rub it on their abdomen.
The ingredients in DiGize are Tarragon, Ginger, Peppermint, Juniper, Fennel, Lemongrass, anise, and Patchouli.

Additionally, if my 5-month-old baby is gassy or constipated, I just rub one drop on each foot, and within 30 minutes he usually has a bowel movement and falls asleep.
