dōTERRA is a company that sells certified pure therapeutic grade (CPTG) essential oils. These oils are used for healing, losing weight, lifting your mood, and many other purposes as well. They are made from the seeds, stems, roots, flowers, bark, and other parts of plants. They are produced to provide the most beneficial, all natural healthcare available today.
There is one particular essential oil that I want to focus on. This oil is called Deep Blue. It is used for healing achy muscles, arthritis, headaches, and sore joints. It also comes in a lotion rub form that is very easy to apply to the area when needed. Deep Blue Rub is in a squeeze bottle that was made so that it doesn't take much effort to use. Anyone can easily open the lid and use this wonderful product.
Deep Blue Rub is made out of the purest ingredients to be the most beneficial to those who suffer from pain or inflammation in muscles and joints. It is made from the essential oils: Wintergreen, Camphor, Peppermint, Blue Tansy, German Chamomile, Helichrysum, and Osmanthus (a flower located in China).
I have used Deep Blue many times before. When I got injured and strained my muscle, I applied it to the area, and immediately felt relief. Not only did Deep Blue take the pain away, but it helped heal my strained muscle faster than it would have on its own. I have also suffered from knee injuries that caused me severe pain, inflammation, and swelling. I used Deep Blue Rub and I was able to do physical therapy without pain. It has helped prevent the knee surgery I might have otherwise needed.
“The CPTG essential oils found in Deep Blue Rub have been proven to allow the body to fight infection and repair damaged tissue by preventing the immune system's response to create chronic inflammation” (AromaTools.com). While a certain amount of inflammation helps fight disease and heals injuries, chronic inflammation can actually create more tissues to be injured and cause severe pain.
Deep Blue Rub can be compared to the product Icy Hot. Like most over the counter drugs, Icy Hot has some plant properties, but they are synthetic in comparison. The pure form of the ingredients have been altered, and the components of the plant that have made it pure have been lost in the process of making the product. Synthetic drugs are water based, while doTERRA essential oils are oil based like the cells in our body. That is why they are so effective. Essential oils can penetrate into our cells to heal and repair them unlike synthetically produced ingredients.
When I have used Icy Hot, it clearly just masks the symptom for a short amount of time and it doesn't fix the root cause of the problem. It's like putting a band aid on a wound that needs stitches. I have used Icy Hot many times before, and although it makes the pain temporarily go away, it has no long term benefits. I would choose Deep Blue essential oil over Icy Hot because of its pure ingredients and I know there are no fillers or unhealthy additives.
The ingredients found in Icy Hot are Menthol and Methyl Salicylate. The FDA found that products containing these ingredients, can cause first- to third degree burns. Because they are synthetically produced, Icy Hot can only be used four times daily. Deep Blue can be used as often as needed because it cannot build up in your system and it has no side effects.

...Yellow In this short story, “Yellow”, Peter Carty confronts Man with the fear that persists in the emptiness of the unknown. Through the experiences of the main character, Jon a second-string writer of a magazine in London, Peter Carty reveals human nature under pressure, whether it is in the deep blue sea or in the face of suppressed reality factors.       The story is set in Egypt as we hear in the first sentence: “Welcome to Egypt! Welcome to Egypt.” And Jon, the protagonist, is the only person the reader gets to know. Jon is on a business trip to Egypt where he is going to write an article. He does not volunteer, but felt obliged to do so by his editor. This is clearly reflected in his attitude towards the whole course. The first challenge is to put on the gear and go underwater. After almost drowning, Jon goes back to his room and drinks a bottle of gin. After he has completed the pool exercises, he and his fellow student, Brian, set out to the sea to practice switching their mouthpieces. Once again, he fails to complete the task and is encountered with the loathed emptiness of the deep. He makes an attempt to reach the surface and in the last minute, Berto, the coach, grabs him and thrusts a mouthpiece in his mouth. The next day, on the way to the bay, he reflects upon his life and considers the possibility of surrendering to his fears as he descends in the water. As a result of this thought, he removes his mouthpiece and attempts suicide. Jon is harshly introduced......

Yellow

...My main topic in this essay will be analyzing Jon’s behavior and personality. I will also give my opinion of the title of the novel”Yellow”. Jon, the main character in this novel is a forty year old man with an overweight problem and a depressive personality, and I quickly get a clear impression of Jon being a lazy, disheartened and negative person. It is like he sees himself as a bit of a failure and somehow seems to have given up on life. Through the novel he uses the word”Fuck” an awful lot of times and this gives him a very negative and irritated attitude. I think he got this attitude because he has been forced by the editor of the magazine that he is working for, to go on this learn-to-scuba-dive trip in Egypt. I think it is bizarre that he doesn’t protest to his superior. Jon is not the ideal person to go scuba-diving, though he is in god condition he is obese and hates being physical active. He fancy looking at the television at the hotel room and drinking cheap liquor. I think Jon has no confidence at all, it is like he is little puppet. But through the novel we see no personal development. He gets more and more depressed. “Then he locked the door of his room against them, and tucked into his duty-free” it is like Jon tries to get rid of his problems by buying his duty-free alcohol and lock the door. By locking the door, Jon is not a part of the world outside. He sits in his room by himself a drinking his problems and sorrows away. This is how he seeks comfort...

Home, the Deep Blue Sea

...Home, The Deep Blue Sea Leaving home was probably one of my biggest fears of my life. Stepping out of Texas, with only a back pack and the clothes on my back, and going into a whole new world. The United States Navy helps several people become independent to: see the other side of the picture, discover one’s weaknesses, teach how to build up financially and helps many become stronger physically but also emotionally. On the other hand, the Navy also destroyed sailors, soldiers and airmen’s sanity. Deployments not only destroyed my mind set; it destroyed several other people’s and many of their relationships, which most civilians will never understand why or even how. There I was, May 5th, arriving at aircraft carrier the USS Carl Vinson, fresh out of boot camp and I’m amazed at how huge this ship is. “Here’s your rack, Moreno. When you finish putting away your uniforms, Lawson will help you get to the mess decks.” Rack, enclosed bed, three walls, and a curtain for privacy from everyone else’s racks. The spaces between you and the person sleeping across from you was not even the length of your arms spread out. Our first deployment was just to get “Around The Horn”, around South America, because our duty station changed from Norfolk, Virginia, to San Diego, California. Our second deployment was six months long, probably the longest six months I’ve ever experienced. We were on a ship, more a city. It houses about 5,000 sailors. Just imagine the lines for “chow”, showers,......
