In their efforts to continually advance our understanding of the biological activities of essential oils, doTERRA scientists recently published a study examining CPTG® essential oils in the Dermatology section of Cogent Medicine. The study investigated the action of Rosemary and Wild Orange essential oils in the BioMAP® system, which simulates human skin cells in a compromised environment.
The study found that these oils were able to diversely impact proteins and genes in human skin cells. Specifically, Rosemary essential oil strongly impacted processes closely related to cellular health and metabolism. Wild Orange essential oil robustly impacted cellular health, immune response, and metabolism processes. These findings are largely consistent with existing research, supporting the beneficial effects of these essential oils.
This study was the first to evaluate the impact of Rosemary and Wild Orange essential oils on human genome–wide gene expression in human skin cells and will provide important evidence and basis for further research into their biological and physiological mechanisms of action. Stay tuned for more exciting research from the doTERRA scientists.
