Deep Blue Rub Uses & Benefits


  • Rub into skin when experiecing muscle/joint soreness, pain, or tension
  • Apply During Sports Massages
  • Apply after intense workouts at the gym


  • Potent blend provides relief from tension and soreness
  • Soothing scent and sensation that promotes relaxation
  • Leaves skin soft but not greasy

Can I Use For:


The rub can help ease pain and discomfort of sprains, however, you should also (and more importantly) follow these steps to help prevent further damage and help your sprain heal quicker. Deep Blue can help to relieve some of the pain symptom while the healing process takes place.

​Joint and Arthritic Pain?

Many people find significant relief from chronic and occasional joint pain with Deep Blue cream. However, aside from temporary relief, this rub is not meant to help heal or improve chronic joint conditions such as arthritis or similar conditions.

Migraines and Headaches?

Doterra does have an Roll-On Oil called PastTense specifically geared toward head tension and aches which might be the better route to treat migraines. However, using Deep Blue rub can have a very similar effect when rubbed on the forehead, scalp, and neck as it still provides a cooling and tension releasing sensation that is also found with the PastTense blend. The BIG thing to watch out for is that the rub should not come in contact with your eyes or you are in for an unpleasant experience. Many people have applied the ointment to various part of the body to forget that it was still on their hands and then inadvertently wiped their eyes. This has a higher probability of happening when applying to the head.

Carpal Tunnel?

User have reported experiencing relief of carpal tunnel discomfort with the application of Deep Blue products. When applying for this purpose, users should be cautious that they are taking other appropriate steps to ensure that their condition is being properly handled.

Bone Spurs?

As with other types of joint-related pain, this rub can be used to assist with temporarily relieving discomfort and pain of bone spurs. But just like almost every item on this list, those suffering from this condition should work with health care professionals to take necessary steps towards long-term reduction or elimination of the underlying problem.

Is It Safe:

During Pregnancy/While Nursing?

Because every pregnancy is different, Doterra's official answer to this is: "If you are pregnant, nursing, or under a doctor’s care, consult your physician." If you call in and speak to a Doterra Representative they will tell you about the same with the added qualifier that to date there is no evidence that Deep Blue is harmful during pregnancy.

So why does this question exist? The big concern is that Deep Blue (like other muscle rubs) contains Wintergreen, and Wintergreen contains Methyl Salicylate. Methyl salicylate is generally not recommended for internal use, and the issue is that it is NOT currently known whether Methyl salicylate is to be found in breast milk after topical application.

For this reason, there aren't any valid current concerns for using Deep Blue products during pregnancy, but just to be extra safe, you may want to avoid using it while nursing.

For Kids Use?

Deep Blue products including the rub, are generally safe for use on children. As with all potent oils and cremes, it's best to find test a small amount first to check for individual adverse reactions for any user, but especially children. Some kids may have extra sensitive skin and the Deep Blue oil may need to be diluted, but the rub is generally formulated that most users can use as recommended without discomfort.

doTERRA Deep Blue Rub Review

Doterra’s Deep Blue Rub offers many of the benefits of the company’s Deep Blue essential oil in a cream form. The emollients provide an effective base for the essential oils that allows them to be applied topically and massaged into any area of pain and discomfort. Doterra’s Deep Blue essential oil offers powerful pain relief properties that can alleviate muscle and joint pain of all kinds. Deep Blue Rub offers consumers this same pain relief power. Primarily, it offers the alleviation of mild muscle and joint pain, such as that experienced after a long day at work or long workout, or the kind of muscle pains created by nervous tension. In addition, the application of the oil creates a warm sensation that offers immediate comfort on top of the reduction of discomfort. Because of its cream form, it also softens and rejuvenates skin, improving not only muscle pain but also the feel and appearance of the skin.

While Deep Blue Rub is most effective for mild pain, it has also been proven to reduce and improve both acute and chronic pain. For instance, besides treating the temporary pain of sprains and headaches, it can treat the chronic pain of scoliosis or the pain caused by old injuries. For instance, the product has improved the comfort level of those with old back fractures, those who have experienced surgery, who come home in pain from the demands of their jobs, and those who have suffered other, long-lasting pain. In addition, the lotion not only alleviates the chronic pain but also alleviates severe pain. For instance, some patients have suffered pain that keeps them awake at night or that has required the use of pain medications, and have been able to reduce their pain using Deep Blue. Regardless of the severity of the pain, the essential oils in Deep Blue work to reduce that pain and make the user less dependent on pain medications.

Deep Blue Rub is a good choice for enjoying the benefits of Doterra’s Deep Blue essential oil, because it reduced the chance of skin irritation that users may experience when using the undiluted essential oil. In addition, because the Rub is beneficial for the skin, it serves as an effective way to soften and smooth skin while enjoying pain relief. As a result, it makes a good choice for anyone suffering pain and looking for a natural, and easy to use solution.
