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.

For three or four years following gallbladder surgery, I took Omeprazole (generic for Prilosec) daily to control heartburn. The list of long-term side effects always concerned me. See a list here: I decided to gradually come off the drug while simultaneously using Young Living essential oils.

I tried DiGize essential oil blend, but it did not seem to help. I now use Peppermint essential oil -- a dab on the nose and throat -- whenever I feel the beginning of heartburn. If I have had a heavy meal, I use AlkaLime and sometimes even at bedtime. Usually a scant teaspoon in about 1/3 cup of water is enough.

It is so great to know that my heartburn is being controlled in a completely healthy way that is not damaging my body in some way like other methods can! I thank God for Young Living essential oils!
