I had a migraine and my neck and shoulders were super tight. I rubbed this on and within a few minutes, the pain started to be relieved. - Jacqueline
- This is by far my FAVORITE cream to use for achy, sore, painful joints and muscles! Once you apply it, you instantly feel the cream penetrating to your muscles/joints. It seriously works instantly and lasts quite a while too. I typically only apply once or twice a day depending on how sore I am. In my opinion, I think it beats out tiger balm and icy hot - Maria

I got off the couch, felt better, made dinner and I am in love. I feel so so much better! - Lillian
- I am new to using oils. My fiance thought I was joking how great the Deep Blue works. I finally got him to let me use some on him. I had to leave for work so I called him to check in and he told me "what's in that? Because it feels like you just dropped an aspirin on my back. This stuff rocks!" - Kelly
- Deep Blue is the oil that convinced my fiancee the oils were not bogus! He is a heavy mechanic so it does WONDERS for his sore achy muscles after work! - Allie
- I absolutely love this product. This is a must-have in every household. Any muscle ache, joint pain, cramps, anything that hurts you rub this on and you can immediately feel it go deep and penetrate into your muscles. This blows Icey hot, and tiger balm out of the waters plus it is all-natural so no major chemicals. I bought many bottles of these and a little goes a long way. My father in law also has gout and arthritis and this helps him a lot. Brings him much comfort through his many days and nights of pain. - Tara

- I bought two as gifts - one for my dad who is an avid runner and one for my boyfriend who suffers from back pain following surgery.

They both suggest rubbing it in at night before bed, you'll wake up feeling much better the next day. - Angela
- I use this after long cardio sessions and yoga classes. It really relaxes and helps my back. My boyfriend also has arthritis in his knees and this helps the pain A LOT! - Lydia

- This stuff is seriously amazing. I may be a little biased because I swear by DoTerra, but this has helped so many people in my family when it comes to joint and muscle pain. Men seem to be stubborn when it comes to these types of things, but the men in my family are now obsessed with using Deep Blue Rub - Courtney
