I wanted to tell you about a new product I found that I am loving at the moment.
My wife has started training again after having our first child, and of course, her muscles are sore and stiff. Unfortunately for her, she is highly allergic to the usual creams and gels available for muscle stiffness & pain relief, due to her sensitivity to chemicals etc.
We have been using bath salts from a company called Ocean Therapy for a while now, and absolutely love it. This is a small-scale manufacturer of ocean-salt based products, mixed with aromatherapy essential oils. Good for the environment and for us! They introduced us to their new range of gels for gym and the outdoors. We tried it, and they worked great – and my wife (with her sensitivities) can use the gels too – no problem.
Here is what the developers say about the product;
The gels have been created as natural alternative for the active community. It is directed towards the prevention of sports related injuries, muscle aches and pains.
It delivers the therapeutic qualities straight into the blood stream by absorption through the skin. The gel is made without any chemical fillers or shelf life enhancers like parabens etc. – all ingredients are plant based. The gel is water soluble and absolutely non-toxic.
We have taken advantage of nature’s remedies and used plant and essential oils to achieve the following outcomes:
- Warms muscles prior to exercise by stimulating the blood circulation
- Natural pain relief
- Natural anti-inflammatory
- Natural insect repellent
- Natural anti-spasmodic
- Improves joint flexibility
- Spot treatment for muscle pain and swellings
- Natural sun protection by boosting cellular protection against UV rays
- Cooling menthol to keep fresh during rides
- Nourishes & moisturizes skin
- Soothes insect bites and minor sun burns
Ingredients: natural gel (made with edible plant based glycerine) and a blend of essential oils in Wheatgerm and Baobab Oil. Aloe Vera (soothing and calming for irritated skin, improves oxygenating of blood, pain relief for sore muscles) sea minerals high in magnesium
I’ve decided to sell these gels here on my website as they are not readily available in stores. So if you are interested, please go on my online store/Facebook store and select the gels you would like to try out. Delivery around Sandton is free! (anywhere else courier costs will be applicable)
until next time!
