Featured Product: doTERRA Deep Blue Rub
As the holiday season spreads cheer, our featured product this month is doTERRA’s Deep Blue Rub. This lotion mimics the cold weather as well as the warmth of friends and family as it alleviates the aches and pains in the body. In our family, we frequently use it on knees and ankles at the end of a long day, while I most often use it on the tops of my nerve-damaged feet at the beginning of the day to erase my usual discomfort.
The doTERRA Deep Blue Rub is specifically designed to help soothe tired muscles and joints, whether they are fatigued by exercising, sports, labor, or growing pains through the natural methods of essential oils. The composition of this lotion moisturizes the skin without leaving behind any greasy residue.
There are eight main essential oils in the original Deep Blue blend which contribute to your body’s wellness. These include Wintergreen, Peppermint, Blue Tansy, Camphor, Matricaria (aka German Chamomile), Helichrysum, Ylang Ylang, and Osmanthus. The Deep Blue Rub in particular, also includes Eucalyptus. Below is why each of these oils was selected and what benefits they give to this blend:
Wintergreen: Fresh and stimulating aroma and its restorative warming and soothing sensation.
Peppermint: Energizing aroma which also stimulates alertness, with a refreshing cool sensation.
Blue Tansy: Soothing sensation and promotes skin beauty.
