In  2012, I started taking pain medication yet and then in 2014 I replaced it with dōTERRA Deep Blue® essential oil which provides a comforting sensation of cooling and warmth to problem areas. Due to an accidental fall, I had been experiencing pains in my lower back and right hip that wouldn't go away. It even affected the position I slept in and the amount of time that I could stand on my feet.

Then in 2014, my good friend, Tara Reed, introduced me to dōTERRA essential oils. At first, I wasn't thrilled and it took a while for me to actually try them (six months actually). However, once I did, I couldn't get enough of them. One of the first things I asked about was, “Is there essential oils for pain relief?”. She told me YES and mentioned that I should try Deep Blue® by dōTERRA.

Why I tried Deep Blue® essential oil

So I took the suggestion to try Deep Blue®. One of the things I learned is that I needed to use a carrier oil that would help me spread out Deep Blue® essential oil on my areas of pain. A carrier oil refers to something like fractionated coconut oil (also available from dōTERRA) that an essential oil is mixed with. The carrier oil “carries” the essential oil and dilutes it so its effects can be spread over a larger area. Then I combine the carrier oil with two drops of Deep Blue® essential oil.
