Our New Website & Deep Blue

We are so excited to finally have our own website up and running.  Please check it out here.


Let us take a few seconds to tell you how much we love DEEP BLUE .  We have tried this on ourselves for sore necks, sore muscles, hurt knees, my son's plantar fasciitis, our friend's herniated discs and it is amazing!  I know that we aren't supposed to say those types of things but we LOVE it!!!  Deep Blue is phenomenal because it has worked within minutes on every single person we've put it on.  We keep running out of Deep Blue because we've been sharing it with everyone.  Here's another great story.  My mother's hands have arthritis and really hurt her all of the time.  We massaged Deep Blue on her hands and within minutes the pain went away.  You should have seen her face.  She absolutely loved it and can't stop talking about it.  Anyways, you really should try it out.  Here's the information explaining what it is but put a drop on yourself and rub it in where you are feeling the pain. You'll love it.

Deep Blue 


Deep Blue®
Soothing Blend

According to recent studies, more than half of us are sufferers of ongoing discomfort. Deep Blue® is dōTERRA®'s soothing solution to this challenge. Wintergreen, camphor, peppermint, blue tansy, blue chamomile, helichrysum and osmanthus work together to ease achy joints and sore muscles. Its effects are deep and penetrating with sustained results. Once gently rubbed into the area of discomfort, Deep Blue's cool therapeutic benefit will be felt almost immediately. For topical use only.

For topical use only.

Apply topically with gentle massage directly to areas of discomfort and pain. This would include areas of inflammation, sprain, bruising, sore muscles, joints, arthritis, rheumatism, and carpel tunnel. Combine with warm compresses for best results. Relief for these issues can also be effective in a bath using 4-5 drops agitated in the water or using a dispersing agent.

Pain blends are very effective against headaches and migraines. Topical massage application to areas of origin and discomfort is effective. Follow up using cup and inhale, diffuse, or carry a tissue cup and compresses.


Use topically with light massage with a carrier (Fractionated Coconut Oil) for children’s growing pains.
Use for irritating insect stings. Apply often until swelling, pain, and irritation subside.  Apply gentle massage on sore and tender areas that have endured the trauma of surgery.  For athletes, gently massage major muscles before and after sporting events.



Suggested protocols:
Depending on the root cause of the muscle pain, one or a combination of the following, will help:
 •  Pain relief (analgesic): birch, Deep Blue, lavender, peppermint, or wintergreen.
•  Calm or relax tension: Lavender or marjoram.
•  Reduce inflammation: Birch, eucalyptus or myrrh with Citrus Bliss or an oil such as lemon.
•  Improve circulation: Lemon or rosemary.
For pain to specific muscles apply topically to the local area to achieve the best results. Coupling this with local massage will add to the relief. If there is general discomfort over many muscle areas (too much exercise or work) a full body massage, baths, or showers will be the best.
Other analgesic oils include: marjoram. Other anti-inflammatory oils are: frankincense, ginger, myrrh, and wintergreen.


Other info:
Chris - I have a friend with a 14 year old son.  Lately he has been sleeping much more, even more than the "typical teenage boy" and when he wakes up he is still tired.  His energy levels are way down.  He has also had some muscle ache, mostly legs so the doctors initially chalked it up growing pains. Has anyone come across anything like this? 
Pat - I would recommend the Life Long Vitality.
Rob - Aroma Touch (the oil) is good for growing pains.  Deep Blue would be also. Use massage to the deep muscles when pain comes on. You also might want to put a diffuser in his room and turn it on about 1/2 hour before wake up time.  Try a few different oils to get the most effective for him, ie.  cassia and grapefruit, peppermint and lemon, Elevation, rosemary and peppermint.   All are very invigorating.
You could also take about 4-5 drops of peppermint and massage them into his neck and base of his skull for a minute or two when he wakes up.  This will get the blood flowing to the brain for sure.  Tell him that the tingling he is feeling is not "hot"... it is "cooling" and is not harmful.  This will wake anyone!!
We have used all these techniques with our 3 boys, 16,13,10 with great success.
Cindy - Teenagers do sleep a lot, and many experience growing pains. My 12 year old uses PastTense for the pains in his legs. If the pain is persistent, severe, or confined to one area (i.e. not equal in both legs) then please do have it checked out by a medical doctor. One of my kids had "growing pains" starting when he was four, that turned out to be a bone tumor. He suffered for 3 years with these "growing pains" in one leg before we discovered he had an osteoid osteoma--a benign tumor that is very painful. An osteoid osteoma can occur in any bone in the body. Luckily for us, his was in the tibia and easy to access; he was just fine after surgery.
Dana - My 12 year old daughter experiences growing pains too.  The Deep Blue works great.  Also, the Past Tense roll on.  Other oils to consider are birch and AromaTouch.  Roman chamomile works great on kids when they are stressed out and need to "turn off" so they can sleep.  Also, lavender baths are great too!  I can totally relate to having to get up in the middle of the night because my child wakes up complaining about growing pains.  I would keep a bottle of oil by my nightstand and apply the oil and within 10 minutes we would be back to sleep!  How valuable is that?  I don't know any mom that wouldn't want to have oils on hand.
