It’s official; that new work-out routine is kicking your butt. Your body aches, your muscles hardly cooperate, and you feel as if you’ve been trampled by a dump truck. All the “fitness experts” that’d encouraged you to run those ten miles or lift that extra five pounds—they’re to blame! Now, you’re convinced that you’ll feel like the bottom of a farmer’s filthy boot forever. But with DōTERRA’s Deep Blue, forever becomes twenty minutes.
WHAT IS DEEP BLUE?
Made from DōTERRA’s certified pure therapeutic grade essential oils—Wintergreen, Camphor, Peppermint, Ylang Ylang, Helichrysum, Blue Tansy, Blue Chamomile, and Osmanthus work together to soothe an assortment of aches and pains. Discomfort in hands, feet, and elbows; even head and neck tension! Deep Blue can reduce pain immediately and effectively. To understand how it works, let’s break it down oil by oil and discuss the individual uses that create such a helpful blend!
A QUICK BREAK-DOWN
Wintergreen, Helichrysum, and Peppermint are considered analgesics. They act like your typical pain relievers. However, what’s so great about Wintergreen and Peppermint is that they induce a hot and cold sensation similar to Biofreeze gels or IcyHot patches. While Biofreeze and IcyHot remain synthetic, Wintergreen and Peppermint can soothe your aches naturally with that same satisfying tingle.
Blue Tansy and Blue Chamomile contain anti-inflammatory compounds such as chamazulene, a terpenoid antioxidant. That means chamazulene lowers inflammation by fighting free radical damage and preventing cell mutation. Rich with these terpenoids, Blue Tansy and Blue Chamomile work together as an ultimate immune booster and can to subdue any sort of pain.
Camphor is you’re cellular repairman; it is highly regenerative. It actively searches for the root of the damage and begins to mend anew. Camphor is also rich in antioxidants and thus works to heal cells and promote cellular growth. With all these oils combined to combat pain, reduce inflammation, stimulate healthy cell repair, and support cellular growth—we get the powerful Deep Blue as a result. If that’s not amazing, I don’t know what is! And guess what?
Now, if you’ve been paying attention, DōTERRA has released a spectacular promotional deal! Place a 200 PV order any time during the month of March, and you’ll get a Deep Blue rub and a 5 mL Deep Blue oil for free! (Um, yes, please?) But before you place your order, and I know you will, let’s discuss a few of the safety precautions associated with Deep Blue’s ingredients, and how to apply both products (oil and rub) for instant relief.
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS AND USES
The Deep Blue rub includes the Deep Blue oil for its beneficial properties while also maintaining several ingredients to accommodate its cream-like solution. One of these ingredients is sweet almond oil. Consequently, those with tree-nut allergies should be cautious. Consult with your doctor or a trusted wellness advocate. If you develop a rash or other serious reaction, do not continue its use.
Other safety precautions for both oil and rub include its strict external use. Avoid contact with eyes, and do not use directly on wounds. Keep out of children’s reach to avoid accidental ingestion, and if swallowed, get medical help or contact a Poison Control Center immediately. It is also important to remember that Deep Blue causes a hot and cold sensation. Those with skin sensitives will have to dilute the oil (and possibly the rub) with a dose of carrier oil; preferably coconut oil.
For optimal use, massage a dime-sized portion of the lotion into affected areas. A hot and cold sensation should ensue and provide an immediate sense of relief. This is great for clients of massage therapists! Moreover, athletes can use the rub to loosen tight muscles before a work-out and after to alleviate soreness.
On the other hand, the oil is excellent for occasional or even chronic joint pain. From arthritis and tendonitis to sprains and nerve pain, the Deep Blue essential oil can be diluted and applied to any desired area. Growing children can use several drops of diluted Deep Blue on their legs before bed to relieve neuralgic pain, commonly called growing pain. A few drops can be applied to joints to reduce arthritis or tendonitis pain. You can even combine the Deep Blue oil and rub for a more powerful concoction!
