Easing Muscle Aches Naturally with doTERRA Deep Blue Essential Oil - AKA Leg Day Saver (DOMS) | The Bewitchin' Kitchen


There is a little something called “leg day”. When properly executed, you are sore for a good day or two afterwards. It’s awesome (I’m not crazy, I feel that it’s my body changing). Easing muscle aches in the past was basically just me sitting in an epsom salt bath. Since adding doTERRA’s Deep Blue to the mix, it’s really bumped up the recovery.

First of all, I want to say that you shouldn’t be feeling pain. If you are feeling pain, you probably pulled something and should take it easy. I’m talking about muscle soreness, ache, DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness). Whether it’s from working out by heading to the gym, working out at home or doing house work, we’ve all been there once or twice.

About doTERRA’s Deep Blue

dōTERRA® Deep Blue is a soothing solution for sore muscles and joints. Wintergreen, Camphor, Peppermint, Blue Tansy, Blue Chamomile, Helichrysum, and Osmanthus work together to soothe and relax muscles and ease achy joints. Its effects are deep and penetrating with sustained results. Once gently rubbed into the area of discomfort, Deep Blue’s cool therapeutic benefit will be felt almost immediately. Deep Blue provides instant relief for the occasional discomfort of tired, sore, and worn-down muscles and joints.

Recommended Uses:

  • Rub on muscles before and after exercise to reduce discomfort.
  • After long hours on the computer, try rubbing Deep Blue essential oil blend on the shoulders and neck to recover and ease muscle tension.
  • Massage Deep Blue with a few drops of carrier oil onto the growing kids’ legs before bedtime to help with occasional aches associated with growth spurts.
  • Rub Deep Blue on lower back muscles after a day of heavy lifting at work or during a move.

Natural Muscle Ache Remedy

  • 1-2 cups Epsom Salts
  • 5-8 drops doTERRA Deep Blue

Fill up your tub with very warm (or if you’re like me, hot) water and add the epsom salts and doTERRA’s Deep Blue. Soak for at least 20 minutes.

You will feel a cooling and tingle sensation (it reminded me of tiger balm) and I noticed a reduction in my muscle soreness when I got out of the tub.

You can also mix Deep Blue with coconut oil (or olive oil) as a rub when you get out of the tub as well. doTERRA also makes a Deep Blue rub or roll on option as well.

  1. Oh, leg day! I’m very familiar with that one! I’m definitely going to check this out. Thank you 🙂

  2. I am going to check this out for my son who plays football. He is always sore after, and he doesn’t like tiger balm, says it doesn’t work to help his aching muscles. So thanks for this post! 🙂

    • You’re welcome Jodi 🙂 I don’t like tiger balm either. Even just a soak in an epsom salt bath may help reduce his muscle soreness (I buy mine at Walmart: 7.97 for a big container, but I really need to start buying in bulk).

  3. I am actually having shoulder day – or shoulder week maybe I should say. I have a huge urge to ditch everything and go shopping. My shoulders hurt from planks and the workout the other day and also they are sore from the regular strain of laptop and keyboard. I wonder if this would help.

    • My shoulders are my weak spot. I really need to build strength in them. Deep Blue helps my husband’s back problems and helps me soothe my muscle aches. It very well could work for you.

  4. Thank you so much for sharing this! I often suffer from leg cramps, aches and pains when I am on my feet too much and things like that. Normally I use muscle rubs but they burn when applied and take a few minutes to work. This sounds like it could be a great alternative solution! Definitely have to check it out!

    • I’m really enjoying it. I’m going to order a bigger bottle next month and make a rub with coconut oil (I just got a new fitness program and can tell I’m going to need it).

  5. That is great! I love how you only need a few drops to work miracles! I have just received my first jar of deep blue! I can’t wait to start making some of that bath salts! It would make a great teachers gift too! 🙂

  6. This product sounds great Randa. I often have sore muscles after a big workout. I’d be really interested in trying it in the bath like you mentioned. Thanks for sharing, I have to check it out now.

  7. i will try this as i have been working out real hard lately plus tomorrow is leg day so u know how it is..

  8. I never really though of using an ointment for sore muscles after training. It’s a great idea. I am starting to push myself again at the gym and the soreness will become a normal part of life again. I think some soothing oil should be on my shopping list!

  9. After having chemotherapy radiotherapy and now on herceptin injections my muscles in my legs and arms are very stiff and very tender. Has anyone had similar problems and found that deep blue has helped
