What Is Summer Savory Essential Oil?
Summer Savory essential oil is steam distilled from the whole Satureja hortensis herb. Native to Europe and chemically similar to Thyme and Oregano essential oils, Summer Savory offers a peppery, herbaceous aroma. Until recently, the only way you could enjoy this amazing essential oil was by using doTERRA DDR Prime® Cellular Complex. But now, for a limited time, you can add this CPTG® single oil to your growing essential oil collection.
What Are the Benefits of Summer Savory Essential Oil?
Summer Savory essential oil contains relatively high concentrations of carvacrol, a chemical constituent found in Thyme and Oregano essential oils. However, unlike Thyme and Oregano, Summer Savory also has significant concentrations of gamma-terpinene. Carvacrol, a monoterpene phenol, has been extensively studied for its therapeutic benefits in the body. Due to their chemistry, phenols have been known to exhibit protective effects against environmental threats.
An Essential Oil for Digestive Support
Summer Savory can be used to support many of the organs and normal processes of the digestive system.*
- Mouth: The tongue, teeth, and mouth are all members of the digestive system. When added to a mouthwash or rinse, Summer Savory may actually help promote a clean and healthy mouth1,2.
- Stomach: Experimental research suggests that carvacrol, the main constituent in Summer Savory, can support normal function of cells in the stomach3.*
- Liver: Summer Savory and its main constituent, carvacrol, may support healthy liver function4,5.*
- Gastrointestinal tract: Carvacrol is known to exhibit antioxidant action at the cellular level, protecting cells and DNA from damage imposed by free radicals. This lends support to cells that line the gastrointestinal tract4.
The next time you go to grab a bottle of doTERRA Thyme or Oregano essential oil, try using Summer Savory instead. Rich with carvacrol, a therapeutic chemical constituent, Summery Savory can offer daily support to the tissues and cells of the digestive system.* Consider adding 1–2 drops to a Veggie Cap or using it to flavor the next savory dish you make.
