Yarrow Pom was one of the newly released oils that came out at Convention in September of 2018. It has quickly become a favorite and next to Rose Touch is my favorite oil... I have always struggled with my skin and since having kids have struggled with my hormones and metabolism. Since I have been taking it internally and using it topically I have noticed some incredible differences. But lets chat first at what this oil duo is profiled for.
I have also been using Yarrow/Pom in my moisturizer or by itself only skin am and pm and my skin is radiating. The texture is smooth, the redness around my nose and the hyper-pigmentation on my forehead and around my eyes has gone away. My husband has been using too and his wrinkles have drastically minimized and I tell him he has, "Peaches and Cream skin" at the age fo 44 yrs." :)
That is not all I have noticed that this oil calms me and I feel more grounded and not so moody. I especially get moody a few days before I cycle and since I have been taking this cocktail internally I am not nearly as moody and cycles are not even close to as intense as they have been.
SO HOW IS THIS OIL COMBO SO EFFECTIVE?
According to the DoTerra Science blog this is what is highlighted,
"Yarrow|Pom is an expertly crafted proprietary blend of Yarrow essential oil and cold-pressed Pomegranate seed oil designed to be your go-to for a true inside-out approach to aging, vitality, overall wellness, and, quite frankly, how to get that glow. This synergistic and first-of-its-kind blend naturallyup-regulates the body’s protective transcription factors while activating skin-protecting proteins (inhibiting the enzymes that breakdown elasticity and collagen) with the added benefit of promoting collagen production.* Additionally, this active botanical powerhouse can be applied topically to revitalize aging skin and taken internally to support a healthy inflammatory response at the source and promotes healthy metabolic function."
There are 3 main chemical constituents that make this oil amazing and powerful.
β-caryophyllene is a powerful chemical constituent that can act on the CB2 receptors in the brain and therefore it can activate the benefits of our endocannaboid system. Let me explain so its easier to understand.
The Endocanbenoid System (EBS) is the primary homeostatic regulatory system of the body. Its in charge of regulating all the major body systems such as:
Punicic Acid is relatively new and is still being aggressively studied. Pomegranate Seed Oil is an oil extract from Pomegranate Seed and it’s benefits include:
Chamazulene baby!!! This is what makes Yarrow/Pom BLUE!!!! I love saying the word. So here is some info on this bad boy... Chamazulene is actually a bi-product of the distillation process, it does not exist prior to distillation. Some of the benefits of this are:
