It is our goal to provide as much useful information on each product as we reasonably can. This is relatively straightforward with single oils and with the blends that include only doTERRA single oils. Many of the doTERRA blend products, however, include oils that are not sold as single doTERRA essential oils, so these oils have no product pages that we can link to from the blend page. We give a brief description here of some of the oils included in doTERRA blends that do not have their own product page.
German Chamomile and Roman Chamomile are both used for relaxation. Whereas Roman Chamomile distills to a pale yellow, German Chamomile essential oil is deep blue and is often referred to as Blue Chamomile.
Therapeutically, Roman and German are frequently used interchangeably however Roman Chamomile is more often associated with sleep and tranquility whereas German is associated with relieving muscle and joint discomfort, and sometimes hayfever symptoms.
Kumquats are a group of small fruit-bearing trees native to south Asia and the Asia-Pacific region. The edible fruit closely resembles the orange in colour and shape but is much smaller, about the size of a large olive. Kumquat is a fairly cold-hardy citrus.
The essential oil is very similar to Orange essential oil, but with a much richer orange scent.
Known as the sweetest of all citrus fruits, the red mandarin from the Citrus reticulata tree is usually peeled and eaten whole or used in salads and desserts, but its rind also contains a wonderfully unique essential oil. Although it is similar to the tangerine (mandarins are often referred to as tangerines interchangeably in some parts of the world) the fruit and the essential oil of Red Mandarin is quite unique in the citrus world. Whether experienced aromatically, topically, or internally, Red Mandarin essential oil can provide a multitude of benefits.
