Let’s take a closer look at each ingredient in doTERRA Balance and how it contributes to the overall profile of the Grounding Blend.
Black Spruce essential oil promotes a relaxing environment. Its aromatic compounds—steam-distilled from the leaves of the Picea mariana tree—are particularly rich in the bicyclic monoterpene bornyl acetate, which is known for a calming, piney scent.
Ho Leaf comes from the Rutaceae family and is known for its characteristic sweet, pleasant, floral, and woody scent. The thin, pale yellow essential oil is steam-distilled from the leaves.
Despite being extracted from tree leaves, Ho Leaf essential oil is dominated by an aromatic compound primarily associated with floral and herb oils: linalool. All linalool-rich essential oils are known for their calming aromas.
Frankincense comes from the Boswellia genus. These trees have been celebrated for centuries. Ancient Babylonians and Assyrians would burn the tree’s resin in religious ceremonies and during meditation. Ancient Egyptians used it in perfumes and salves to soothe the skin. Oil from the resin has long been part of Ayurvedic and traditional Chinese health practices.
One of the most prized oils, frankincense has been valued since antiquity for its beautifying properties and grounding aroma.
Blue tansy, a member of the chamomile family, is a flowering plant originally from the Mediterranean that’s primarily cultivated in Morocco. Despite its name, the plant’s flowers are actually yellow. The oil is known for its dark blue color and is commonly used in beauty products.
Blue Tansy essential oil contains significant concentrations of sabinene, camphor, chamazulene, and other potent terpene compounds. It has a characteristically mellow, almost balsamic aroma, which is a perfect addition to a restoring and relaxing massage.
Blue (or German) chamomile has a much different chemical profile than the more widely known Roman chamomile. It’s particularly rich in chamazulene—the same aromatic compound that gives blue tansy and yarrow a bright blue hue.
Like many other floral oils, Blue Chamomile is valued for its calming aroma.
From the same botanical family as jasmine, osmanthus—also referred to as sweet olive—is an Asian shrub that produces flowers full of precious aromatic compounds. This evergreen shrub has been cultivated in China for over 2,000 years. Its flowers—known for their calming apricot-like scent—are frequently used in perfuming sachets and tea additives.
Osmanthus essential oil is rich in beta-Ionone, which is part of a group of compounds often referred to as rose ketones because of their presence in a variety of floral oils (especially Rose).
With these ingredients, it’s easy to see why doTERRA Balance has been a bestselling product for years. Each essential oil features powerful benefits and properties, which come together to forge a grounding aroma that’ll stand the test of time.
