Are you an athlete? Do you suffer from tension due to a busy life? Then this blend is the oil you must have at home. Deep Blue from dōTERRA is a composition of different oils that in this combination create a soothing blend. Perfect for a massage after a long day or an intense workout. Deep Blue has a cooling effect, gives strength and can support healthy muscles and joints.
The effect of Deep Blue
In a recent study, dōTERRA examined the effect of Deep Blue on human skin cells. By adding certain factors to cultured skin cells, the researchers induced a cellular response to mimic an inflammatory response in a living person. Some of the inflamed skin cells were exposed to the oil and others were left alone.
After exposure to the oil, the cells were collected and opened. The results indicate that the signaling pathways related to inflammation, immune modulation and wound healing are affected in the cells that were exposed to Deep Blue. This helps explain why this blend is soothing after strenuous exercise.
This oil can also be used to support people who are avoiding the underlying emotions of physical discomfort. Deep Blue gives you power to heal “emotional wounds”, creating space for transformation and healing. This soothing composition can support the mind to remain calm despite emotional or physical challenges. This keeps your mind clear when facing danger or discomfort.
Basically, Deep Blue helps you to accept and tolerate things and situations. Discomfort is not always cruel or bad, but a teacher. Instead of resisting the situation, it is important to embrace the lessons that life is trying to teach you. By providing space and understanding for the cause, this blend encourages you to take on the life lessons.
