Pretty much everyone that I introduce Deep Blue to eventually falls in love with this product!
So I wanted to cover real quick WHY it works–what’s in it, and why those ingredients are so effective. Check out other posts highlighting it here!
There are some great oils in the Deep Blue oil blend which are Wintergreen, Camphor, Peppermint, Blue Tansy, German Chamomile, Helichrysum, and Osmanthus. The full list of ingredients can be found here.
Included for its warming effect when applied topically. Research shows that wintergreen oil has the ability to act like a natural analgesic (pain reducer), antiarthritic, antiseptic and astringent. Wintergreen oil primarily contains the active ingredient methyl salicylate, which makes up about 85 percent to 99 percent of wintergreen essential oil.
doTERRA does not actually sell this oil separately at the current time. The health benefits of camphor essential oil include its properties as a stimulant, antispasmodic, antiseptic, decongestant, anesthetic, sedative and nervous pacifier. It also acts an antineuralgic, anti-inflammatory, disinfectant, and an insecticide.
Peppermint gives a cooling sensation and has a calming effect on the body, which can relieve sore muscles when used topically, and is most likely the main ingredient in the Deep Blue rub.
Blue Tansy (Tanacetum annuum)
Not to be confused with the toxic variety Tanacetum vulgare. This is another oil that doTERRA does not sell separately at this time. However, it is the blue in the Deep Blue name. Although reputed to have a wide-range of health benefits including anti-inflammatory, anti-histaminic, antiviral, febrifuge, insecticide, hormone stimulant, sedative, and vermifuge substance properties, research is still working on supporting all of these claims. Given this, we won’t try and guess why doTERRA includes this in the Deep Blue product.
doTERRA currently only sells Roman Chamomile. Chamomile in general has a panacea of benefits. Click here for more on the science of Chamomile essential oil. This is likely included for its anti-inflammatory, wound healing, and anti-bacterial properties. This is one of few essential oils safe for all ages (infants to seniors) and safe for animals, including cats!
This oil is expensive and rare with many said benefits including faster wound healing and soft tissue and bone healing from bruising.
