Re: Topical Homeopathic Pain Relief Creams
I use essential oils, such as peppermint, winter green, an oll called deep relief & this does bring me some relief. More so if I apply moist heat. I have learned not to purchase the store's cheaper oils as they are not the same.
I know that massage therapists, Pts a long with some doctors who lean more towards natural treatments use the oils also. My PM also told my husband & I he thought about starting his own line of oils. Its soothes & relaxes my muscles at times. Nothing takes the pain away completely but IMO the oils beat any OTC products. The closest I have come is Tiger balm, Bio freeze & a Cryoderm. Ive tried so many products I could probably fill an entire shelf.
The Thermacare patch has helped some also but can't tolerate it in the heat.
I always run everything I use by my doctor.
This has been my personal experiance & not sure if it would be the same for others but I can say with all honesty the oils are used for some many other things that most people I have shared mine with end up purchasing their own. Great for sinus & colds also. Hope this helps. Sammy
