Do you have muscle pain after a hard day of activity? Don’t reach into your medicine cabinet just yet; there are hundreds of natural pain relieving products that you can use instead of over-the-counter pain killers and chemically loaded balms. Nature has a vast collection of herbs and plants with analgesic properties, providing relief for everything from headaches to arthritic pain and even burns. As a rule, we strongly believe that there’s a plant which can do anything a pharmaceutical does, except the former is safer.
If you aren’t one who is too keen on herbs and such-like, you can stock your natural first aid kit with our No Pain! All Gain! - 100% Natural, Pain Relief Sport Balm, which is great for alleviating pain following intense activity or sports-related injury. The problem with relying too much on pharmaceutical solutions is that you develop resistance to them in time, so that they won’t offer complete relief with long-term use; and of course the fact that these products contain tons of chemicals, which could have a negative effect in your body.
If you’re still not convinced with our argument for natural products, below is a brief description of some of the ingredients in our all-natural formulation, and how they will help you fight pain with no side effects unlike chemicals.
- Sweet birch oil
Essential oils from the leaves of the Birch tree have the same action as cortisone, the prescription drug given for the treatment of various conditions. One compound found in the oil is methyl salicylate, which is similar to the active ingredient in aspirin, salicylic acid. Methyl salicylate has analgesic, anti-spasmodic, diuretic, detoxifying, antioxidant, astringent and antifungal properties. It also enhances blood circulation and promotes enzymatic activity. It is a known and powerful pain-relieving agent.
- Wintergreen oil
This is also another pain reliever that is comprised of 85-99 percent methyl salicylate, whose list of benefits are described in detail above.
- Peppermint oil
Peppermint is a common essential oil that is often used to remedy pain resulting from bloating and flatulence, skin irritation, toothaches, headaches, skin irritation and various kinds of muscle pain.
- Avocado and shea butter
These are rich in fatty acids and antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agents, which nourish the skin around the site of injury, reducing tightness and leaving the area feeling smooth and supple. Forget the harsh smells and burning sensations/skin irritation that comes with pharmaceutical balms, and use this natural product with proven capacity to heal your wounds.
- Eucalyptus oil
It’s a well-known essential oil with anti-inflammatory and analgesic abilities. In small quantities, it is very helpful in relieving nerve and muscle pain.
- Rosemary and thyme oil
Both oils have documented anti-spasmodic and analgesic properties, and is used to relieve backaches, joint pains, headaches and muscular pains.
