Soothing and Cooling Properties of Deep Blue Oil Blend
Formulated to soothe and cool, doTERRA’s Deep Blue essential oil is an enriched blend of these powerful oils – wintergreen, camphor, peppermint, ylang ylang, helichrysum, blue tansy, blue chamomile, and osmanthus.
It’s often used for a comforting massage, as well as to relieve sore muscles after strenuous activity.
The major active components of Deep Blue including methyl salicylate, menthol, eucalyptol, and camphor, are organic molecules that possess beneficial properties and are widely used in various health care products.
In a recent study, doTERRA researchers investigated the effect of the blend on human skin cells using the BioMAP dermal fibroblast system. After exposure to the blend, the cells were collected and burst open. RNA was extracted from a solution containing the cellular contents and sent for RNA microarray analysis. The microarray results indicated that signaling pathways related to inflammation, immunomodulation, and wound healing were affected in cells exposed to Deep Blue essential oil blend (source).
