A Little Tummy Trouble Got My Oily Journey Started
Welcome to my little corner of the web, and thank you for stopping by.
I often get asked, "How did you get introduced to oils?" It's one of my favorite things to talk about, because it totally rocked my world.
First a little back story, I'm on dialysis (have been for on and off 23 years but more about that in another post). With dialysis, you often experience many unpleasant issues, one of those being a little tummy trouble when you over-indulge in some of your favorite foods. Usually, when this happens, one of two things happen, neither of which are pleasant. One, I usually end up getting terribly sick. Or, two, I usually have to leave wherever I may be and go lie down or suffer somewhere out of sight, as to not be visible for any pity-partyers.
So, fast forward to three years ago, to a night that changed my life. I was at a dear friends home, and we were celebrating some type of holiday. I don't remember which one, only because we celebrated a lot at her house, and they tend to run together when I think about it. Well, my dear friend always makes sure that we are very well fed and the spread she provides is always amazing. This night was no different. I ate and visited, ate and played a game, ate and played with the kids, and ate some more. Well, needless to say, my tummy, although very satisfied with all the amazing food, started to be very disagreeable. I was feeling extremely nauseous and knew that I was on a quick downhill run for having to end my party time. That's when my wonderful hostess (who knew me and my tummy troubles very well) said that she had something that she wanted me to try - something that might really help me.
She then gave me this little brown bottle of liquid and said, "Rub a few drops in your hand, inhale it deeply and then rub it on your stomach." Well, you can imagine the look on my face when I said, "What?! Rub it ON my stomach?" "Trust me," she said. So trust I did....I rubbed a few drops in my hands, inhaled deeply and...."eeeewww, it smells like black licorice" I winced. She laughed and again said, "Trust me, just rub it on your stomach." So, I hesitantly did was she said and then went and sat down to finish a movie we were watching, expecting to have to leave because my tummy was ready to go. BUT, to my surprise, within not even 10 minutes the pain and nauseousness was COMPLETELY gone. I mean completely. And, I was able to start enjoying that amazing spread of hers again.
So, what was that little brown bottle of amazing liquid? DiGize Essential Oil from Young Living. And since about two weeks after that night, I have not gone without it. I keep a couple of bottles at home, so I never run out. And, I keep a smaller bottle with me at all times for those moments when my tummy decides it wants to try and pick a fight, or in case someone I am with may need a little help. DiGize Essential Oil is an amazing blend of Tarragon, Ginger, Peppermint, Juniper, Lemongrass, Anise, and Patchouli oils that create a unique spicy aroma that is very close to black licorice.
As a topical/aromatic oil Digize can be applied directly to the chest, writs or abdomen to help calm an upset stomach or it can be diffused in the office, at home or in the car to promote a relaxing and calm atmosphere. And, if you're like me and sometimes need that little extra support, there is also Di-Gize Vitality oil. The same amazing oil blend offered as a supplement in which you can add a few drops to a capsule, water or juice to help support a healthy digestive system. And it's safe to use with your children and pets.
I'm so thankful for DiGize essential oil blend for keeping my tummy happy and for my dear friend, Minita, for caring enough to share her oils with me that changed my life. If you're ready to begin using essential oils in your family's everyday wellness support, I would love to not only help you get started but walk alongside you in your journey towards wellness, purpose and abundance.
