Deep Heat: a review

Updated on February 8, 2015

What is Deep Heat?

Deep heat is a well-known brand in the United Kingdom; it is a brand of heat rub used for easing the pain of muscular aches and pains as well as things like rheumatic pain, fibrosis, sciatica and lumbago. It helps to stimulate circulation, relax stiffness and re-oxygenate tense and painful areas. Apparently a similar product in the United States of America is Icy Heat. Amongst the active ingredients are menthol, eucalyptus oil and turpentine oil, when rubbed into the affected area it provides a warm, tingling sensation that does indeed help with the pain. Athletes use it regularly as well as arthritis suffers.


I would recommend this product highly to anyone looking for some relief from muscular aches and pains

In the United Kingdom Deep Heat Rub is available at many chemist (I got mine at Boots), supermarkets and of course online (if you stand the wait for delivery). Its available quite cheaply from about £1 up to about £5 for the larger 100-gram pack that is the size I bought, as unfortunately knee injuries tend to linger. Other tube sizes were available thirty-five gram and sixty-seven grams. It is also available as the more well know spray version and I also noticed there was patches.

Do you prefer the spray version or the cream?

Some time ago now I badly sprained my knee. If this in itself was not bad enough I still had to go to work and the rest of the usual rigmarole. I have used the spray version of deep heat and saw this on sale in Boots the Chemist. I thought it would last longer and be more convenient then the spray. The cream contains the same ingredients as the spray and both have a strong smell. The cream is not as bad because you apply it as a cream it does not as badly permeate through the air. The cream itself is white in colour and is thick paste. You then massage the cream into the injured area (in this case my knee) it warmed up slightly at the first contact. The more your massage it in, the warmer it seems to get. I would recommend doing this if it is possible and not too painful to get the full benefit. It seemed to work for a good few hours and they say you can use it up to two or three times a daily.

A strong word of advice is WASH YOUR HANDS AFTER USING.

How would you rate Deep Heat?
