When you’re experiencing any sort of physical discomfort, all you want to do is get rid of it as quickly as possible, right? The common solutions we run to are over-the-counter meds like Aleve or Advil. While those may help, they are not a good long-term option.
I encounter people all the time who are using NSAIDs daily and even multiple times a day! There’s a whole list of possible side effects that come with abusing medication like that.
Instead, wouldn’t you prefer a natural, safe option that you can use daily if needed and comes with side benefits rather than side effects?
Thankfully that option does exist. Essential oils have an abundance of uses and benefits including soothing muscle and joint pain and reducing inflammation.
And the go-to oil I recommend for all of my clients complaining of physical discomfort, is Deep Blue Soothing Blend.
Deep Blue is a powerful essential oil blend that offers immediate soothing effects for physical discomfort.
Eight essential oils combine synergistically to create this powerful blend: Blue Chamomile, Wintergreen, Camphor, Peppermint, Ylang Ylang, Helichrysum, Blue Tansy, and Osmanthus.
These essential oils provide rejuvenating benefits and provide soothing comfort to the back, legs, neck, shoulders, hands, and feet.
Wintergreen is a key component of Deep Blue. The primary chemical constituent of Wintergreen essential oil is the monoterpene ester methyl salicylate, which is often combined with lotion and used to soothe muscles and joints.
Helichrysum is a rare but powerful essential oil. There are over 600 species of helichrysum throughout the world, but it is primarily Helichrysum italicum that is sourced for its essential oil due to its ability to encourage energy and vitality when applied topically.
Blue Tansy essential oil is used in massage to provide a soothing sensation on affected areas. It is also emotionally calming and beneficial to the skin.
Ylang Ylang is prized in the perfume industry for it’s sweet, floral aroma. Topical application of this tropical oil encourages feelings of calm and relaxation and reduces the effects of daily stress.
Osmanthus essential oil is used for irritated skin. The pleasing fragrance of Osmanthus also makes it popular in the perfume industry, although it is rare and pricey. It takes approximately 200 pounds of osmanthus flowers to extract a single ounce of Osmanthus essential oil.
Peppermint essential oil provides an intense cooling and comforting sensation due to its menthol content. Peppermint is distilled from the flowering tops of the Peppermint plant. Cooling to the skin, Peppermint is helpful for soothing feelings of tension.
Camphor Bark essential oil, distilled from the Cinnamomum camphora tree, is widely used in massage therapy for its ability to soothe affected areas.
Blue Chamomile (or German Chamomile) has a warm, herbal aroma that is calming and soothing.
- Apply on feet and knees before and after exercise.
- Perfect for a soothing massage after a long day of house work or a workout.
- Apply to hands and feet after gardening or strenuous activity.
- Rub Deep Blue on lower back after a day of heavy lifting at work or during a move.
- Massage Deep Blue with a few drops of FCO (or Deep Blue Touch) onto growing kids’ legs before bedtime.
- After long hours on the computer, try rubbing Deep Blue essential oil blend on your fingers, wrists, shoulders, and neck.
Due to its popularity, Deep Blue comes in different application methods. You can use the pure oil or use Deep Blue Rub, which is a lotion, or the Deep Blue roll-on.
We have all three. Deep Blue was my husband’s gateway oil that made him a believer in the efficacy of essential oils. He holds his tension in his neck and shoulders and sits at a computer much of the day. By the end of the day, he would be tight and sore.
The moment I applied Deep Blue oil on his shoulders, he was hooked. It worked so well and so fast to alleviate his discomfort.
I get testimonials all the time about how well Deep Blue worked for joint discomfort, back issues, headaches, cramping and more!
