There were two oils that I had to choose between for this week, and they are both oils that we love to use in our house on a regular basis. They are Deep Blue and Digestzen. I will tell you a little about both of these.
Deep Blue is a soothing combination of Wintergreen, Camphor, Peppermint, Ylang Ylang, Helichrysum, Blue Tansy, Blue Chamomile, and Osmanthus. This blend comes in the oil, roller bottle, lotion or even as a polyphenol complex. We use this for many things in our house.
Deep Blue is the oil that we rub on after a long day when the muscles are tired. I like to use it on my legs after a long walk, or a run on the treadmill. I will even use it on the kid’s legs at night before bedtime.
When I am not using the oil, I pull out the lotion. This has been a favorite of my husband for his back after a long day. I can give him a back rub and use the benefits of the oil at the same time. I have even found for him, that I can apply the oil and rub it in with the lotion to help create a more soothing effect on him.
Now, the polyphenol complex is something I hadn’t tried right away, but once I did, I fell in love. The Deep Blue Polyphenol Complex includes proprietary, standardized extracts of ginger, curcumin, resveratrol, and other polyphenols to soothe aches and discomfort. This complex has helped aid my occasional aches and pains, and I find myself using this when discomfort presents itself. When I have had a long day, I find myself grabbing this from the medicine cabinet before anything else.
DigestZen is the second D oil that I want to share with you. This blend contains Star Anise, Peppermint, Ginger, Caraway, Coriander, Tarragon, and Fennel essential oils. This blend is our tummy blend. When we have the occasional stomach discomfort, this is the oil we grab. It also helps to reduce bloating, gas, and occasional indigestion.
DigestZen is available in the oil, a roller bottle ready to be applied to the skin and in a softgel form. I love how this is available to use in many different ways for everyone in the family.
I love the many uses of essential oils, and I love to share them with you. If you have questions about any of these oils or would like to know more about how to get them at wholesale cost, send me an email at hopkinshomeschool(at)gmail(dot)com.
