When Darin and I were at Convention last summer, we saw doterra founders giving a 5 million dollar check for more cancer research with essential oils. I had no idea hao strong the oils really are when you use the therapeutic grade. I’m not a scientist I work with people teaching them to swim and enjoy their life in water. My partner is a Reiki Master we use the oils every day all day. We have learned so much over the last year. And there is so much more to learn. My mom and sister are both teachers with Masters in working with Gifted children. They use oils every day, my sister with her 5 children and husband. Two of my nieces are in college and they keep “walking off with the tea tree rollerball. Noah her next oldest is in high school musicals the lead and currently taking his leading lady to Homecoming. He loves the tea tree rollerball ache and the “Breathe ” blend for singing. My daughters favorite is Deep Blue Rub, she was born with “spastic displaga” in her hips and CP. And now as a 24-year-old wife who has a dog and cats on a 4-acre homestead, the rub keeps her moving. She has used the oils for emotional balance and cooking, homemade bath bombs and dishwasher pods. Her husband is in the Navy and takes the supplements to keep him at peak performance while on the submarine for months at a time. The Oregano oil on warts and skin tags was a surprise to many of my friends. I could keep going about all the new things I learn every day. so I try to blog every day to share what I have learned.

Deep Blue Polyphenol Complex®

The brand name Deep Blue® is synonymous with soothing support. The CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® essential oil blend as well as the rub have provided comfort to many and are trusted among their users. It only makes sense that an ingestible supplement would complement the topical benefits of the Deep Blue product line.* Deep Blue Polyphenol Complex delivers polyphenol extracts of frankincense, turmeric, green tea, ginger, pomegranate, and grape seed, and is designed to provide soothing support to aching muscles and to other occasional discomforts.* Take as needed when discomfort presents itself, or take it every day for long-lasting benefits.


Deep Blue Polyphenol Complex provides a unique blend of extracts of Indian frankincense (Boswellia serrata), along with turmeric and ginger. Indian frankincense has long been used for its soothing properties, and its use in the traditional Ayurvedic practices of India is well established.*


This supplement delivers a unique and standardized Boswellia serrata extract (not an essential oil) that has been clinically studied to promote healthy mobility and function, and can provide soothing support throughout the entire body.*

Like frankincense, turmeric has been used for centuries in Ayurvedic practice and is also part of the popular spice Indian curry. The science behind turmeric’s soothing role in overworked muscles and joints is now recognized by experts throughout the world.* Ginger root has also been used for centuries throughout Asia for health benefits and as a popular spice. Ginger was among the first spices brought to the New World and has long been recommended for its natural soothing benefits.*


Polyphenols are natural, powerful, water-soluble antioxidants and Deep Blue Polyphenol Complex delivers the unique polyphenol benefits from what are considered some of the most healthy beverages—green tea, red wine, and grape and pomegranate juice. Red wine (resveratrol) and green tea (catechins) have, for centuries, been recognized as central to the healthy Mediterranean and Asian diets, respectively. Today, they are the subject of the most exciting anti-aging and wellness research.* Resveratrol is believed to be a key component in the healthy Mediterranean diet and it is thought to be responsible for the “French Paradox,” where the French enjoy far better heart health than would be expected from a less than ideal diet and lifestyle.*

Deep Blue Polyphenol Complex is designed to offer unparalleled natural relief. Furthermore, its formula enables you to enjoy all these exceptionally powerful, natural molecules without consuming any alcohol, caffeine, sugar, calories, or other potentially harmful stimulants.
