Discovering Deeb Blue – Our April Giveaway
Hello from Dr. Brenda!
April is here, and Spring has certainly sprung. This is a wonderful time of year when things are warming up and many people, like myself, experience Spring Fever. It can be exciting to think of the colder weather passing and anticipating the upcoming Summer in all its splendor. Personally, I enjoy Spring for many reasons. Since I enjoy walking as a form of exercise, watching the blooming plants makes my daily walks more exciting and I tend to walk even more than usual. With increased walking comes some additional soreness in the beginning as my body gets used to my new routine. When I need relief from soreness, I turn to Deep Blue Rub!

Learning More About Deep Blue Oil and Rub
If you are looking for a great product for aches and pains, Deep Blue is worth a look. It’s an essential oil blend for anyone with muscle, joint, or connective tissue discomfort. This includes everyday soreness, discomfort from injuries or disabilities, whiplash from auto accidents, inflammation and arthritic pain from aging. With essential oils, there are single oils (just one oil) and Blends (a combination of different oils). The ingredients in this award-winning combination are: Wintergreen, Camphor, Peppermint, Ylang, Yang, Helichrysum, Blue Tansy, German Chamomile, and Osmanthus. This amazing blend may be applied directly to the area of pain and also on the bottom of the feet as the oils absorb into the body at a cellular level. Deep Blue Rub is also perfect for a soothing massage after a long day at work or exercising. The oils work in concert to soothe and cool inflammation. After long hours on the computer, the deep blue rub provides relief on your fingers, shoulders, neck, and wrists.
A Variety of Uses
There are a variety of uses for the Deep Blue blend. Here are just a few:
- Apply on your feet and knees, before and after exercise.
- Put on your lower back after a heavy day of lifting at work or moving.
- Massage with a carrier oil (fractionated coconut oil) onto children’s legs and backs for aches and pains.
- Apply on the back of your neck for relief from a stiff neck.
- Apply on the back of your calves to relieve spasms.
Important Safety Notes
To minimize skin sensitivity, you can dilute the Deep Blue blend with carrier oil. Be careful not to rub your eyes after touching Deep Blue with your hands since the peppermint oil in this product may sting your eyes. Use a mild carrier oil or fractionated coconut oil to dilute Deep Blue and remove it from your eye. Steer clear of using water if you’ve touched your eyes as water will intensify the burning. Be sure to always wash your hands thoroughly after using Deep Blue blend.
The Emotional Benefits of Deep Blue
When considering your overall wellbeing, it’s always important to remember that physical health and emotional health work hand-in-hand. Here are a few emotional benefits that come from using Deep Blue:
- It’s helpful for processing emotional or physical pain.
- It provides immediate relief of severe pain.
- It assists with letting go of pain and helps with creating alternative, positive thoughts of letting go.
Affirmations to Use with Deep Blue Rub
Many people find that using affirmations helps them maintain a positive state of mind. With this in mind, I’ve included some affirmations to use in conjunction with the Deep Blue Rub:
- I choose to be calm, collected and present. I choose to release my pain.
- I am loved and deserve to feel good.
- Even though I am in pain, I choose to move past this situation and look to brighter days.
- Deep Blue helps me reduce my headache pain and let go.
About the Oils in Deep Blue
There are seven amazing essential oils that make up the Deep Blue blend. I’ve listed each oil individually so you can learn about each one’s benefits.
Wintergreen has methyl Salicylate, an organic ester that is naturally produced. Wintergreen is known as a counterirritant oil, which moderates the strong feeling of hot or cold that can intensify painful joints and muscles. Also, it has salicylates that are a compound related to aspirin. With topical use, you may avoid the negative aspects of internal effects that may be received from aspirin products.
Menthol, from the peppermint oil, enhances the cooling and healing sensations obtained from mint oils. This cooling sensation is created via stimulating the cold-sensitive transport of the melastatin 8 receptor (TRPM8). It also has a pain-killing effect on the opioid receptor that may change our perception of pain, mood, motor control, and consciousness.
Camphor is primarily used for its scent and is found in the evergreen tree.
- Blue Tansy
Blue Tansy is a perennial, herbaceous, flowering plant in the aster family. Since the 8th century, blue tansy has been used for medicinal and insecticide purposes.
- German Chamomile
German Chamomile is a common name for several daisy-like plants from the family of Asteraceae. It possesses anti-inflammatory qualities and there have also been studies on anti-anxiety effects.
Helichrysum is also in the Asteraceae family. Its flowers and leaves have traditionally treated allergies, cough, colds, skin, liver, and gallbladder disorders.
Osmanthus is from the Oleaceae family. Its sweet fragrant flower shows Neuroprotective, free-radical antioxidant effects in the research.
For me, Deep Blue is a great daily aid for stiffness, invigorating the blood, and reducing my stiffness before and after I exercise or walk. I hope you’ll enjoy the benefits of using Deep Blue and the relief it can bring into your life. As always, feel free to contact me directly if you need help with Deep Blue or with any of your essential oil questions. I love nothing more than using my 40+ years of essential oil experience to help others find happiness and health in their lives.
