Ever been to your state fair? I grew up in Washington State, where they had the Puyallup State Fair. Best. Fair. Ever. You guys don’t even know! It is seriously the best! This is the state fair I hold all others up to. Not many can compare. Part of my love for the Puyallup State Fair could be that I would attend with my friends and we were allowed to walk around ALONE. I know. We were so cool. Some of my favorite memories were had on those rides, eating that greasy not good for you clog your arteries food, walking though that house of mirrors.
Like many fairs, they had funnel cakes. But this wasn’t just any kind of funnel cake (again, my memories of these experiences are painted with friends and fun and lots of sugar, so bare with me). These funnel cakes were huge (like a story tall) and had more powdered sugar, chocolate drizzle and magical fairy dust on them then I can even accurately describe. We would get 2 of these and split them among the 4-5 of us. It was glorious. Oh the memory!
The problem with the funnel cake was that no matter how amazing it tasted, no matter how much fun we were having, no matter how many rides we had tickets for, every single one of us threw up. Always. It’s times like this I wish I had Digize and Peppermint in my back pocket. Because I absolutely would have used these two powerhouses prior to stuffing myself with deep friend, chocolate covered dough. Yes and amen!
Today, whenever we do anything that could potentially result in these memory making experiences, I pack the powerhouse duo. Digize is one of the first oils I used. Due to this pesky little thing known as Celiac Disease, I routinely encounter a not so great feeling due to a hidden ingredient. Bam. Enter Digize. Rub this killer on my abdomen and let it work. Peppermint is great for that nauseous feeling you get when you eat too much movie popcorn or when your son thought eating an entire small cheese pizza and then jumping on a trampoline was a smart idea. These are the times I want my two gun slingers - DIgize and Peppermint. These are also the memories I wouldn’t trade for anything (except maybe another funnel cake from Puyallup).
