Zendocrine blend

Zendocrine Detoxification Blend

Zendocrine detoxification blend is a fairly new essential oil blend to support the body’s natural ability to rid itself of unwanted substances,  cleanse the body of toxins and support healthy liver function, while also purifying and detoxifying systems of the body.

With more people turning to essential oil blends to promote overall health, I wanted to look into the benefits of Zendocrine.

What is Zendocrine?

Zendocrine is on of our doTERRA essential oils blend products. This detoxification blend offers a host of benefits, but primarily its uses include:

  • Supporting healthy liver function.
  • Detoxifying systems of the body.
  • Body system purification.
  • Supports the body’s ability to cleanse the body of toxins.

Essential oil blends are volatile aromatic compounds found in the bark, flowers, roots, seeds, and stems of the plant. What is a volatile aromatic compound? They are small organic molecules changing from a liquid or solid state into a gas; all at room temperature. When volatile aromatic compounds move through the air, they in-turn affect the sensory glands; making essential oil blends ideal for use in aromatherapy.

Benefits of Zendocrine

While doTERRA offers key benefits of Zendocrine, there are additional benefits of essential oil blends. The primary benefits of Zendocrine include:

  • Body system purification.
  • Claims to cleanse the body of toxins.
  • Supports healthy liver function.
  • Additional benefits of essential oils include:
  • Complementary treatment to massage therapy and acupuncture.
  • Positive effects on nausea and vomiting.

INGREDIENTS

Zendocrine Ingredients

Zendocrine ingredients are listed in a proprietary blend, including:

  • Tangerine peel
  • Rosemary leaf
  • Geranium flower/leaf
  • Juniper berry
  • Cilantro herb

Tangerine Peel

Tangerine, as with other citrus fruits, has been studied extensively for its health benefits. The Chemistry Central Journal concluded, “metabolites in Citrus…work synergistically to exhibit anti-oxidative, anti-inflammatory properties.”

Rosemary

Rosemary is used in culinary dishes throughout the world, but also offers health benefits. According to the journal Evidence-based Complementary and Alternative Medicine, “uses of rosemary are antibacterial, antioxidant, improving cognitive deficits, and anti-inflammatory.”

Additionally, the journal Psychiatry Research found “smelling rosemary increases free radical scavenging activity and decreases cortisol levels.”

Geranium

Geranium is an essential oil studied for its benefits on stress reduction. According to the Journal of Caring Sciences, “Aroma of essential oil of geraniums can effectively reduce [stress]…and can be recommended as a non-invasive anti-[stress] aid.”

Juniper Berry

Juniper is native to Europe, North and South America. According to the journal International Scholarly Research Notices, juniper has been used in “herbal medicine…as [an] antidiarrheal, anti-inflammatory, astringent, and antiseptic.”

Research presented in the journal Antioxidants concluded, “antioxidant research of juniper essential oil provided the existence of several mechanisms which enabled [free] radical scavenging.”

Cilantro

Cilantro is another plant often used in culinary dishes possessing both nutritional and medicinal properties. Based on research presented in the journal Fitoterapia, cilantro offers “anti-inflammatory properties.”

Zendocrine Uses

Aside from the claimed benefits of Zendocrine, uses of the essential oil include:

  • Aromatic
  • Topical
  • Internal

Aromatic

As a part of an aromatic essential oil regimen, users will add Zendocrine to a diffuser of their choice. You’ll add three to four drops of Zendocrine to your diffuser.

Topical

Zendocrine can be used topically. You can create a Zendocrine detox bath by adding three or four drops to your bath. Some also add Epson salts as well. An additional topical application of Zendocrine is applying directly to the skin. The company recommends applying one to two drops to a particular area. doTERRA suggests diluting Zendocrine with a carrier oil (fractionated coconut oil) to minimize skin sensitivity.

Internal

You’ll add one to two drops of Zendocrine to your citrus drinks, water or tea. doTERRA suggests diluting one drop in four ounces of liquid before adding to a dink.

Zendocrine Side Effects

Instead of focusing on side effects found in Zendocrine blend, I have looked at any potential side effects of Zendocrine ingredients.

Tangerine Peel

One of the potential side effects of using tangerine essential oil is skin reactions. According to the International Journal of Molecular Sciences, “To avoid any possible adverse skin reactions, it is recommended to dilute Citrus oils with a carrier oil before topical use.”

Something often missed regarding side effects from tangerine essential oil is the potential interaction with prescription medication.

Rosemary Leaf

While there’s no mention of adverse effects of using rosemary essential oil, there are some positive side effects. According to the journal Scientia Pharmaceutica, in an animal study, mice were exposed to “.5 mL of rosemary for a period of an hour [resulting] in locomotive activity of mice was increased.”

Geranium Flower/Leaf

Some users may notice side effects from this particular ingredient. However, according to the Dental Research Journal, research has “not observed any reportable side effects in patients receiving Geranium.”

Juniper Berry

According to Toxnet Toxicology Data Network, some reported side effects of juniper include “difficulty in breathing, wheezing, and coughing.”, so I wouldn’t recommend this for anyone with asthma or respiratory conditions.

Cilantro

Cilantro is generally safe to use. However, according to the Indian Journal of Pharmacology, cilantro may have a “sedative” effect.WARNINGS

Zendocrine Warnings

There are warning and cautions mentioned on the official website regarding Zendocrine.

  • Possible skin sensitivity.
  • Keep out of the reach of children.
  • Consult a doctor if you’re pregnant, nursing or under the care of a doctor.
  • Avoid contact with the eyes, inner ears or sensitive areas.

If you answered yes, then you’re in the right place!

Adding essential oils to your business

Incorporating essential oil hair, face and skin care into your business can be a simple, pain-free experience.

It can provide many additional beauty benefits to your customers and at a cost-effective wholesale rate for your company and 25% profit.

While aromatherapy massage and aromatherapy skin care are different and require some different products, you can still use many of the same products in both treatments. So if you have a massage therapist on your team, and you’re considering adding essential oil skin care treatments to your spa, salon, clinic or practice, aromatherapy massages might be a great upsell item for your customer that will require little additional overhead, investment or inventory.

The only investments required to add essential oil skincare to your list of items, services or treatments your company offers is a little time and some inventory.

The time investment is just to learn more about the products and essential oils involved.

Alternitive Medicine

Medicinal Essential Oils

Essential oils are surging in popularity, but what does the research say?

Do scents have the power to ease your pain or boost your mood?

Is aromatherapy a fad or an important part of a holistic approach to healing?

Is your nose a pathway to your brain?

Experts are looking at questions like these and discovering that potent, plant-based scents may just have a place in the science of health and healing.

As many people look for natural (and safe) remedies for trouble sleeping, chronic pain and more, essential oils such as lavender, jasmine, ginger and spearmint are surging in popularity.

It’s true that the research is limited. But studies do suggest that aromatherapy can be beneficial and when it comes down to it, how you feel may be the most important thing: Many people report that essential oils help them feel better by easing nausea, soothing sore muscles or promoting relaxation after a stressful day.

What exactly is an ‘essential’ oil?

Essential oils are extracted from flowers, fruits, leaves or seeds to capture the aromatic “essence” of the plants that they come from. The result is a super-concentrated oil that can be breathed in, massaged on, or added to lotions or bath water. Find out more in essential oil enrolment school.

The idea is that these botanical scents target smell receptors in the nose, triggering effects that pass through the nervous system to the brain. When absorbed by the skin, some oils are also thought to have anti fungal or antibacterial effects.

A word of caution: Some manufacturers sell essential oils that can be taken internally, but the practice is controversial since safety research is limited so ALWAYS use Certifice Pure Therapeutic Grade oils.

Can it help with pain management?

It might. Researchers looking at aromatherapy as a way to help with pain after surgery have found that those who try it not only have better pain management, but also report higher overall satisfaction with their care. Of course, essential oils are just one part of a post-op pain management plan.

Women in labor have also reported positive results using scents such as rose, lavender and frankincense. In one study, these scents seemed to help ease anxiety and fear, and reduce the need for pain medications.

Does it support better sleep?

Chamomile tea and lavender lotion at bedtime are well-known sleep promoters. But do they actually work? Studies of hospital patients would say yes; they’ve documented that these scents can encourage relaxation and improve sleep.

Even professional caregivers can benefit. In a study of nurses working rotating shifts, participants slept better after an aromatherapy massage at the end of a graveyard shift.

What about indigestion and nausea?

Stomach discomfort can be a side effect of many conditions, from pregnancy to cancer. But studies suggest essential oils may help.

People with leukemia who used their choice of lavender, chamomile or peppermint got relief from nausea and lack of appetite in one study. In another, peppermint essential oils helped some pregnant women find relief from nausea and vomiting during labor.

How to smell your way to feeling better

Whatever the health benefits of aromatherapy, using scents that you enjoy or that make you feel good could help you relax and feel more positive. Experts suggest peppermint and lemon essential oil for headaches and mental fatigue, or mandarin to help with restlessness, anxiety, nausea and sleep.

How to use aromatherapy safely

When used the right way, most essential oils are safe. But it’s important to remember that they are potent, and can’t all be used in the same ways.

For example, an oil that is safe to use in a diffuser may not be safe to rub into your skin. In fact, some citrus oils can cause severe burns if you apply them directly to your skin and go into the sunlight.

It’s also important to follow instructions and dilute oils correctly. For example, you might put a few drops into water for an aromatherapy diffuser or into a neutral “carrier” oil, such as vegetable, coconut or jojoba oil, before applying to skin.

As with any supplements or herbs, talk to your doctor about any essential oils you use.

Copiaba tree

Copaiba essential oil benefits and uses

Copaiba essential oil benefits and uses

For many years copaiba oil has been used for a variety of different purposes including:

  • as an anti-inflammatory
  • to promote wound healing
  • to provide pain relief
  • to treat a wide variety of infections, including bladder infections, gonorrhea, and strep throat
  • as an aphrodisiac 
  • in cosmetic products, such as soaps, lotions, and shampoos

So far, many of the potential benefits of copaiba essential oil are based on anecdotal reports. However, that’s not to say that researchers haven’t been investigating the possible benefits as well.

Pain Relief

2018 studyTrusted Source compared the effect of massage with copaiba essential oil and Deep Blue essential oil in people with arthritis. They found that when compared to massage with coconut oil, the copaiba and Deep Blue blend led to a decrease in pain scores, an increase in finger strength, and improved finger dexterity.

Anti-inflammatory

Inflammation is associated with a variety of diseases and conditions. Because of this, research into the anti-inflammatory effects of copaiba could have an effect on the development of future treatments.

2014 studyTrusted Source assessed the effects of copaiba oil-resin in a mouse model of multiple sclerosis (MS). They found that treatment with copaiba oil-resin did two things: 

  • lowered production of some molecules that are associated with inflammation
  • lowered the amount of oxygen radicals, which can lead to cell damage 

Another 2017 studyTrusted Source in rats looked at the effects of copaiba oil-resin treatment on tongue injury. The tongue tissue of rats treated with copaiba oil-resin showed a lower presence of immune cells associated with inflammation.

studyTrusted Source from 2018 evaluated the effect of copaiba oil-resin in a rat model of colitis. They found that although copaiba oil-resin reduced inflammation and oxygen radicals, it didn’t prevent colon damage.

Antimicrobial activity

One studyTrusted Source from 2016 evaluated the antimicrobial activity of copaiba oil-resin against a standard strain of the bacteria Staphylococcus aureus, which can cause skin and wound infections. Researchers found that even low concentrations of copaiba oil-resin were able to inhibit bacterial growth.

Another 2016 studyTrusted Source assessed the activity of a copaiba oil-resin gel on Streptococcus bacteria species present on teeth. The study found that the gel had antimicrobial activity against all species that were tested. However, more research is needed to determine the nature and efficacy of this activity.

Doterra Healthcare clinic

Doterra Healthcare Clinic

DoTerra Healthcare

With plans to transform healthcare by offering natural alternatives doTERRA is looking for teams of dedicated doctors, nutritionists, essential oil experts, and wellness coaches, who will “ensure that patients receive the high levels of care in their clinics.

The proposed medical services include: complete primary care, urgent care, wellness coaching, nutrition counselling, essential oil therapies, and genome testing.

They are appealing to the public’s clear and persistent frustration with mainstream care delivery, by promising comprehensive services that integrate conventional medical care with holistic alternatives, including of course use of essential oils as adjunctive therapies. They’re simultaneously tapping practitioner desire for a more humane, less-abusive, and healthy mode of practice.

A Ready-Made Market

doTERRA has over 400 full-time employees, and claims upward of 3 million wellness advocates. That’s a ready-made market of individuals who’ve self-selected for interest in botanical medicine, and other non-pharm alternatives.

Doterra oils

A survey conducted by the company suggests that 85% of patients in the USA want holistic and natural solutions, including essential oils, from their medical practitioner, but only 15% have doctors who are providing that sort of care.

According to the company’s site, 50,000 people pre-registered to join doTERRA Healthcare before it opened.

The flagship clinic will be located in Pleasant Grove, UT, to serve doTERRA’s on-site employees, followed by a roll-out of clinics across the US and beyond.

The pilot is being led by Brannick Riggs, MD, a family physician who trained in integrative medicine at the University of Arizona, and David Hill, DC, a chiropractor with broad interests in holistic modalities. Both have extensive experience with essential oils, and with doTERRA as a company.

If doTERRA is able to develop an effective and replicable practice model, it is likely to appeal to many holistic and functional medicine physicians who currently struggle with fiscal and practice development issues.

It remains to be seen how doTERRA will meet the very complex challenges of primary care delivery, but doTERRA have considerable resources,  management know-how, and a committed ecosystem of bright, independent-minded people who are seeking healthcare alternatives which points to success.
