So what’s in it?
This little blend has many oils that are amazing for so many reasons. Let’s start with…
Ice blue (or Deep Blue as it’s known in the US) is a specifically designed blend by doTERRA especially to help muscles. It consists of oils such as Wintergreen, Camphor, Peppermint, Blue Tansy, Blue Chamomile, Helichrysum & Osmanthus. This blend is an amazing blend that can be used on its own, but when you need something a little extra, adding it to this muscle blend with a few extra oils makes it much more powerful.
Copaiba is this amazing oil that has so much potential. The main constituent (Beta-caryophyllene) works on the endocannabinoid system and has great benefits for those aches and pains. It also has benefits of calming the body and any heightened feelings that come up when we are feeling sore and tense. Win Win. I love that it is in this blend.
Lemongrass has the main constituents of Geranial and Neral. Amongst the many other properties of both Neral & Geranial, they both have anti-inflammatory properties which is beneficial to a blend specifically for achy muscles. Add the bonus of the lemony scent of lemongrass and this combination is a Win Win!
Marjoram is an underrated oil. It not only does it help ease the effects of pain within the body, it also helps with spasms and tight muscles too. It has a calmative effect and is a great oil for sleep! But we aren’t here to talk about sleep are we! We are here to discuss using Marjoram in a muscle blend. Using in a massage blend directly to the muscles that are tight and tender is the best way to use Marjoram.
Frankincense is a powerful powerful oil. Not only does it have beneficial effects in its own right, but it boosts the essential oils it is partnered with. Win Win! Frankincense is a great oil to promote feelings of relaxation and calm. It also supports immune health and the cellular function of our body. Helping our bodies to relax and ease tension when we are in pain, helps our bodies to heal.
