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.

My family and I were having dinner at a restaurant while on vacation. I ate something that, unknown to me, contained a small amount of shrimp, which I am allergic to.

My ears and throat started itching immediately, and my husband wanted to run across the street to a drug store for an antihistamine. I assured him that I was okay and that I would let him know if my reaction worsened.

We completed our meal and headed home. By the time we got home, the itching had stopped, but the severe stomach pain (that always follows) had begun.

I reached for the antihistamine but then decided to try my essential oils instead, since I have never really gotten relief from the pills anyway. I rubbed 2 drops of DiGize on my upper stomach where the pain was, and in less than 5 minutes the pain and discomfort were completely gone!

After over 20 years of suffering for hours whenever I accidentally eat shrimp, this immediate relief is wonderful!
