Deep Heat Balm
Warms and soothes achy joints and muscles.
Deep warming capsicum extract is coupled with over a dozen essential oils as well as icy-tingly menthol. The base is Arnica and St. Johnswort infused sweet almond oil and beeswax.
We have been making this aches & pains balm for nearly 2 decades to rave reviews. Some users are yoga teachers & athletes, some are senior citizens with achy knees & hips, others are builders & gardeners who work with their bodies all day. All of them notice what a deep warming and soothing sensation it provides.
The essential oil blend in this product in addition to giving it much of its heat and tingle, also make it smell spicy and nice, so you will not be embarrassed to go to work wearing it. But do remember to wash your hands after use, or everywhere else you touch will be tingly and warm too!
Try on sore backs, shoulders or anywhere that aches. For hands that ache try applying before bed and then waring cotton gloves till morning. If an injury is sore but also already feels hot, then consider using our Blue Heat Balm as it is a cooling analgesic.
Rub on sore joints and muscles. Warms area and helps lessen aches and pains. The more you apply the stronger it is. But ease in, it pretty is strong! Wash hands with soap after applying our other places you touch will get warm too. Keep away from eyes. Not for children.
beeswax, arnica and st. johnswort infused sweet almond oil, menthol, capsicum extract and a blend of many warming and cooling essential oils including ginger, cinnamon, camphor and peppermint.
This soothing heat helps me get my aching joints get going in the morning! Grateful!
I’ve been using Tiger Balm for years to get deep heat into my shoulder. This is so much better and without the greasy feel of other balms and salves. The menthol smell of other balms isn’t overwhelming with this—cinnamon and ginger are the predominant scents.
The heat lasts longer than others I’ve tried. I’m already getting another tin ready in my queue!
So it works on the same basis as tiger balm but way better in so many ways. It does continue to heat up after application so be aware while it might not be overly warm to start with it will get there. Works on a variety of aches and pains so its definitely my favorite go to for joints, old injuries, sore muscles and even cramps. Even have a friend who is healing up some cracked ribs and it's been a life saver.
I got this for my mother who recently changed jobs and has been having a lot of muscle pains as a result. She’s tried a lot of warming creams before and none have really worked for her, but this one? She loves it! It goes right to her sore muscles and smells very pleasant!
My husband and I found this at a local co-op a little over a year ago, and it's become a household staple ever since. I have osteoarthritis and hypothyroidism, and my joints ache in the cold. This balm has helped SO much. Because it's not petroleum based (like Tiger Balm, which we'd been using), it's light, soaks in well, doesn't stain my clothes, and washes off easily. And living on Whidbey Island ourselves, it feels good to support local companies. Every product we've tried from Island Thyme has been wonderful so far, and though we're budget conscious we're more than happy to pay a little extra for quality results like this. Thank you!!
Last year i had such lower back pain that i could not lie down to sleep. When i used this in combo with a Chinese oil recommended by my PT, i could lie down to sleep at night. I took it with me when i traveled to Japan; our birding guide had injured his thumb in a previous trip so i loaned it to him. It must have been effective as he wanted to have it when we parted. I tried the Blue Heat but much prefer the Deep Heat, even though i have to be careful with its application and washing up after its application.
I'm an athlete training at least 5 days a week and do very physical work beyond that. This balm has been absolutely fantastic in helping me soothe daily aches and pains to get a good night's sleep, and alleviating soreness so I can come back the next day and put in good work. The balm is a great texture for massaging into muscles, and it really does feel warm and relaxing going on. If I use it before bed, it actually reactivates when I start sweating the following day - it's that potent! I like this, but it was a bit startling the first application. Be careful to wash your hands after, the capsicum is strong and it will burn your eyes if you rub them. Really great problem. I just bought a few more tins to gift to family members with arthritis pain and other athlete friends. Thanks, Island Thyme!
Works good on arthritic hands.
2nd time buying this product...love it! It works so well on my bad back and neuropathy in my feet. Will definitely buy again. I tell all my friends and coworkers about your business.
very good results on back pain, thank you .
I love this deep heating balm!! It heats up so fast and really helps ease any aches and pains. I works great if you deal with any sinus problems, just rub it on your forehead and give it a little time to work it’s magic. This stuff really smells great too!!
My daughter-in-law on Whidbey Island got this for me a few months back, both the deep heating Analgesic Balm and the Blue Heat Analgesic balm. I have arthritis from the neck to the ankles as well as 2 torn rotator cuffs. I use it when my neck hurts from the arthritis, the leg pain, down to the ankles and my lower back. Relief within a few minutes time. I use the heating balm to relieve the shoulder pain and down to my knuckles. Relief..that simple..relief.. My parents are both using it for arthritis and bursitis and on my dad's knee from knee replacement. My recent purchase was for my son and son-in-law for the aches they have as a gift for Christmas. I gave my son's to him over the weekend after a car accident.. he was applying it as soon as I gave it to him from his neck to knee. These are great products and relieve my pain better and faster than the prescribed meds to rub into my skin for my arthritis. I had a co-worker use the deep heating balm today for her severe back ache problem. It's given her some relief as well... The lip balms are the best too... very pleased with what I have received so far. You've got a family of believers in your products between Alaska and Texas!! Thanks for the quick delivery as well. I look forward to using more of your products in the future.
Your products are wonderful! I haven't used the Deep Heat one yet.
Please tell the man that returned my call about the Headache Stick leaking, that after I cleaned it up, and pushed down on the plastic pieces again, that it did not leak anymore! Thank you!
I just got a sample of this balm with a recent purchase & came home with a really sore shoulder after work, saw it in the counter, & rubbed it into the knot. I'd say 10 minutes later I realized, my shoulder was pain free after nagging me all afternoon. I will have to get a full sized soon!
I have been using the Deep Heat Balm for the past ten years. It never fails to deliver relief from my chronic low back pain. Thank you so much for making this affordable and effective medicine.
Really, really, really, works. No home should be without it!
Kicked my Tiger Balm to the curb. Far less sticky, the consistency imelts into the skin much easier, soaking quickly to the muscles. Very soothing combination of herbs
I love and use the Deep Heat Analgesic Balm after I have been working in the yard. I gave one of the containers to a friend and she is ordering some soon. It REALLY works. Thanks Island Thyme.
I’ve used this product for about two months and it’s amazing. I have hip and lower back pain and this balm really helps. I use it almost everyday.r
Used to get something from butterfly weed herbal but became difficult to obtain. Love your recipe. Will continue to buy.
Bought a $20 tin 2 yrs ago. Just got a replacement. Any time my back is so tight i have to kneel to pick something up it fixes it. I can move again. Would be a deal at 40.
I am thankful I can send for things from Island Thyme! I am allergic to a lot of chemicals so it is a perfect place to order good products. They make everything , I just purchased the Deep Heat Analgesic Balm. It helped my arthritis and my sore knees. It has a refreshing smell. Thanks for your talents.
About 12 yrs ago a coworker gave me agift pack from Island Thyme. I was skeptical due to being let down by most commercial brands either not working or the smell being horrible. This product was so different it didn’t smell bad and I could apply it and in no time I could move without pain. It gives a wonderful deep heat and it lasts for those who wake up stiff and sore. Apply before bed and feel the difference when you wake it’s amazing. I love every product I have tried from Island Thyme keep up the good work these products have helped me get back much of my movement Thank You!
This does give a lot of heat and once I get past my skin stinging, it works great. It does make my skin have a prickly stinging sensation, but it does go away and I get the warmth down deep, which is nice. I LOVE the smell of it. I am now going to try the other one. The cool blue muscle rub, and probably try out some more items.
I bought this as a gift for my parents as they really enjoy it. My Dad especially likes it as he is getting older and winter can be harsh where they live. I have never used this product personally, as I need to be very careful with ingredients.
My friend was in the island and bought me a tin. It’s anaxing helps with my pain in muscles and joints. It’s great because most of my medication makes me tired however this salve makes me feel like I can accomplish most of my daily to do lists.
I will not order this again. I didn't find that it really worked and it smelled awful!
My daughter has purchased this of our cramping, aching legs and we are grateful to her for getting it because it has helped. Both my husband and I have benefited from this product!
I use this often but my husband finds the smell overwhelming. What we both get GREAT RESULTS mutually with is the Island Thyme Blue Heat Analgesic Balm. It is my nightly go to Balm.
Sorry to say, this product did not work very well for us.
Love the hand lotions though.
I ski a lot and have been having hamstring issues. I stretch and then use the deep heat balm and have had great results.
Been using this for years , its the best for heating up those tight , sore spots and it last for hours. Be sure and wash your hands after using.
It smells good, but not sure it does any better then Miracle Ice which I normally use. Prob. won't buy again due to shipping charges.
I love this product. I, unfortunately, am in constant back pain daily. You only have to use a little of this product to get relief. And it lasts me all day. After putting this on once in the morning I can still feel the pleasant warming sensation at night. I have used a lot of over the counter rubs and this one is still my favorite.
This product works the best of any that I have tried. It relieves joint and muscle pain within minutes and the effects last quite awhile. It smells so much nicer than the store brand products that I have tried. I definitely recommend it for arthritis pain or sore muscles.
YOUR PRODUCT IS GREAT FOR ALL TYPES OF PAIN. BACK,SHOULDER LEGS
Rubbing a little bit of Deep Heat into my knees gives a gentle heat that helps to soothe aches from arthritis. :-)
