Summary: This product is a blend of Yarrow essential oil and pomegranate seed oil. Yarrow essential oil has many benefits on its own, but there are even more benefits packed into the Yarrow|Pom Active Botanical Nutritive Duo. Keep reading to learn more about the unique attributes of this innovative blend.
Yarrow products in general have become increasingly popular due to the wide range of benefits they provide. Yarrow essential oil has a high chamazulene content and is a great source of beta-Caryophyllene. It is similar to some of the blue oils; however, unlike Blue Tansy, which should only be used aromatically and topically, yarrow is recognized by the FDA as a food additive (meaning it is safe for ingestion). Many yarrow products on the market contain thujone, which is a chemical that is toxic to the nervous system and should never be ingested. However, the doTERRA Yarrow oil has been tested through the CPTG® process to ensure it does not contain thujone in any trace amounts.
Pomegranate Seed Oil
What’s truly unique about this product is that it isn’t just Yarrow essential oil that comes in the bottle, it is the combined Yarrow|Pom Active Botanical Nutritive Duo.
Pomegranate seed oil (PSO) is the carrier oil in this blend, but it is also packed with some beneficial qualities that you might not be aware of. doTERRA’s PSO is extracted through cold press, which has been found to have much better physiochemical and nutritional qualities compared to PSO extracted through other methods, like CO2 extraction. Our cold pressing method provides the highest amount of crucial fatty acids while also keeping the resulting PSO free of impurities.
Pomegranate seed oil is uniquely rich in punicic acid (CLnA) and conjugated linoleic acid (CLA).
CLA is known as an “omega 5” fatty acid due to the location of the double bond in its chemical structure. These unique conjugated fatty acids are known to provide metabolic support within key organs like the liver and pancreas, specifically in processes like lipid transport and lipid metabolism1.* You typically consume these fats in meats and dairy products, but doTERRA’s PSO is a unique product containing a high concentration of these conjugated fatty acids from a fruit source.
The unique value in this product is the fact that it is blended as a Yarrow|Pom duo. This means there are two different components that work synergistically. Yarrow’s wonderful aromatic compounds provide metabolic support and other benefits to the cells and tissues, while the conjugated fatty acids in the pomegranate seed oil provide nutritive benefits.* This culmination of benefits gave rise to the products classification as a “nutritive duo.” Through completely different biological pathways, these two components support the full spectrum of metabolic health.* This is the first of a new category of groundbreaking essential oil products that are hybridized for specific health benefits. Use Yarrow|Pom internally by diluting 2 drops in 4 fl. oz. of water and continue to use it topically also. Look out for more innovative natural solutions to wellness as we continue to define the future of essential oil science.
doTERRA Science blog articles are based on a variety of scientific sources. Many of the referenced studies are preliminary, experimental studies and further research is needed to gain a greater understanding of the findings. Essential oils may have drug interactions, patient contraindications, or adverse effects that cannot be evaluated using experimental research results alone. If you are interested in using essential oils for any health concern, consult with your healthcare provider first.
