doTERRA Deep Blue is a powerful essential oil blend that offers immediate soothing effects for skin. Comforting and cooling, Deep Blue is popularly used after activity as part of an after-sports massage. Eight essential oils combine synergistically to create a powerful blend: Blue (German) Chamomile, Wintergreen, Camphor, Peppermint, Ylang Ylang, Helichrysum, Blue Tansy, and Osmanthus. These essential oils provide rejuvenating benefits and provide soothing comfort to the back, legs, and feet.
Wintergreen is a key component of Deep Blue. The primary chemical constituent of Wintergreen essential oil is monoterpene ester methyl salicylate, which is often combined with lotion and used to soothe muscles and joints.
Helichrysum is a rare but powerful essential oil. There are over 600 species of helichrysum throughout the world, but it is primarily Helichrysum italicum that is sourced for its essential oil due to its ability to encourage energy and vitality when applied topically.
Blue Tansy essential oil is used in massage to provide a soothing sensation on affected areas. It is also emotionally calming and beneficial to the skin.
The sweet, floral aroma of Ylang Ylang is prized in the perfume industry. Topical application of this tropical oil encourages feelings of calm and relaxation and reduces the effects of daily stress.
Osmanthus essential oil is used for irritated skin. The pleasing fragrance of Osmanthus also makes it popular in the perfume industry, although it is rare and pricey. It takes approximately 200 pounds of osmanthus flowers to extract a single ounce of Osmanthus essential oil.
The intense cooling sensation of Deep Blue is due in part to the concentration of menthol in Peppermint essential oil. Peppermint is distilled from the flowering tops of the Peppermint plant. Cooling to the skin, Peppermint is helpful for soothing feelings of tension.
Camphor Bark essential oil, distilled from the Cinnamomum camphora tree, is widely used in massage therapy for its ability to soothe affected areas.
Blue Chamomile (or German Chamomile) has a warm, herbal aroma that is calming and soothing.
Apply Deep Blue on your feet and knees before and after exercise. Massage into your back for relief of exhausted and overworked muscles, such as after planting a garden or moving boxes. Use on your feet before and after big events, such as weddings, to ease foot discomfort from standing. Apply to growing children’s legs for a cooling and soothing effect.
