Deep Blue, my GO TO topical tension release

What is DEEP BLUE?
I recently included it in my Recovery article, very briefly, as an excellent way to lessen the DOMS you experience post workout.
I want to give you a bit more info on what DEEP BLUE is, and why it works so well 🙂

Deep blue, found in a roller bottle, pure oil, lotion rub and even capsules is a combination of some incredibly powerful oils including  Wintergreen, Camphor, Peppermint, Ylang Ylang, Helichrysum, Blue Tansy, Blue Chamomile, and Osmanthus,

Okay, great, now what’s so great about those oils?

Let’s break it down shall we:)

WINTERGREEN:

Wintergreen oil has the ability to act like a natural analgesic (pain reducer), antiarthritic, antiseptic and astringent, making it a perfect addition to a post workout self love regime.

CAMPHOR: 

 Camphor acts as a stimulant, which is great for stimulating blood blow and circulation. Camphor also acts as an antispasmodic, antiseptic, decongestant, anesthetic, sedative, and nervous pacifier. It also acts as an antineuralgic, anti-inflammatory, disinfectant, and insecticide. Again, perfect for soothing your aching muscles.

PEPPERMINT:

We all know and love peppermint for the refreshing benefits of it, the calming sense we get from smelling it but when it comes to muscle recovery….It is analgesic, anti-inflammatory and antis-spasmodic, so that it can not only relieve pain and inflammation but also calm the spasms that cause muscle cramps.

YLANG YLANG:

Ylang ylang is considered an effective antidepressant, antiseptic, antispasmodic and sedative. It has a positive effect on immune health, blood flow and emotions, making it a natural remedy for the endocrine, cardiovascular, reproductive and digestive systems.

HELICRYSIUM:

Powerful soothing benefits, this is added to the oil and lotion to add a comforting soothing sensation upon application.

BLUE TANSY:

Blue Tansy acts as an antibacterial, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, anti-histaminic, antiviral, febrifuge, insecticide, hormone stimulant, sedative, and vermifuge substance. It’s the anti inflammatory properties that we are loving for our sore muscles.

BLUE CHAMOMILE:

Like peppermint, we all know the calming benefits of chamomile tea. This is the purpose of the blue chamomile in the Deep blue oil and lotion. The calming properties of chamomile allows our tense muscles to relax, with our minds.

OSMANTHUS:

Osmanthus oil is rich in polyphenol compounds, which help in relieving the fatigue, stress, and depression. It also helps in reducing physical stress by calming down the nerves and muscles.
