Enhancing Exercise Performance

Did you know that research has shown a possible link between enhanced exercise performance and peppermint essential oil?

A study published in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition found such a link. Researchers compared results of the men running on a treadmill before drinking peppermint water, and then after drinking peppermint essential oil in water for 10 days. The results were impressive.

Drinking peppermint essential oil in water resulted in greater time to exhaustion and distance, enhancement in breathing efficiency, increased lung function, and a decrease in resting and exercise heart rates and systolic blood pressure.

I encourage you to read the study for yourself at this link

Testimony: Deep Blue Supports Healthy Nerve Function

Below is a testimony from a friend about Deep Blue. The essential oils in Deep Blue help to support the nerves and muscles and joints. The oils can help bring the body back into balance and a state of wellness. 

Please note that these results may not be typical and are not guaranteed.

"I was involved in an accident in 1966. They had to amputate both my legs above the knees. During the healing process I started having phantom pains.
I have 2 different kinds of phantom pain. One of my pains comes in attacks that feel like severe cramps. I have to take pain killers when this happens. The other is a constant feeling that my feet are on fire. Even though it is painful, I have learned to ignore the pain. It is no way as severe as the cramping. My wife got introduced to doterra oils; one of them being Deep Blue. She told me I should try it. I have been through several magic potions and none of them worked. So I had little faith in the oils. One night I was having a very severe attack and my wife said I should try the oil. We rubbed it on the ends of my legs with no results, but 2-3 days later I was relaxing and realized I did not have the constant burning in the bottoms of my feet. It was completely gone. I sat there and wondered what was going on, as since my accident the pain was always there. Sometimes the burning pain was worse than other times, but it never was completely gone.Talking with my wife, she wondered if it was the 
Deep Blue. I had no burning pain for several days, then it started kicking in again. We again rubbed on Deep Blue and the burning pain went away. I can go from 7-10 days without the burning pain and then it returns and I have to apply more Deep Blue. I still have the cramp attacks, but to be relieved of the burning pain that I have experienced for 50 years is quite fantastic."

Research: Lavender Aromatherapy

A brief summary:
For some patients, managing pain after surgery means receiving opioids or NSAIDs. Both classes of drugs come with serious side effects. This study compared patients after surgery that used Lavender aromatically with those that did not. It found that 82% of the placebo group required morphine pain medication compared to 46% of the Lavender group. Furthermore, those in the Lavender group that did require medication, needed significantly less morphine than the placebo group.

I encourage you to read the complete study for yourself.
