Everyone knows what it is like to be plagued by aches and pains, whether it’s from a sports injury, arthritis or anything in between. On the market today there are so many pills, gels, creams and rubs to help alleviate the unrelenting pain, however all the strong ones contain toxic chemicals that harm your body. That is, all except for the Love Oil Company’s Stiff, Sore & Sorry range.
After 35 years of experience in the industry as a massage therapist, sports trainer, aromatherapist and beauty therapist, Helen Love had seen enough of products on the market that simply didn’t have the essential oils and active constituent concentrations high enough to really make a difference when used. That’s when Helen developed the Stiff, Sore & Sorry range which has two gels, the pain relief gel and the injury/sports gel. While they may sound run of the mill, what sets Helen’s products apart is the fact that they are completely 100% natural. No chemicals, no toxins, just 100% natural ingredients.
The Injury/Sports gel has the highest concentration of the well-known ingredient Arnica, which makes up 10% of the ingredients. This is two to three times stronger than any other brand on the market today. Arnica is used commonly today due to its successful management of swelling and pain associated with bruises, strained muscles, joint problems, osteoarthritis and the list goes on. Helen takes the healing agent one step further when she combines the active Arnica with essential oils such as Wintergreen, Peppermint, Clove, Rosemary and Eucalyptus. The combination of these ingredients increases blood circulation and lymphatic drainage resulting in the almost immediate relief of pain.
For the best results, you can apply the Injury/Sports gel pre and post sports and it can be used to alleviate the pain caused by any muscle joint and soft tissue injury, stiffness or contusions. Personally, I suffer a great deal of muscle tension in my shoulders and neck. I apply the Injury/Sports gel before bed and within minutes, the unrelenting pain is eliminated. I have also used it on my shin splints resulting in the same affect.
The Pain Relief gel, while containing 7% Arnica, benefits from the addition of Capsicum Oleoresin. When this ingredient is used topically, it is known to stimulate then block small pain fibers by depleting them of ‘substance p’, a neurotransmitter thought to be main mediator of pain impulses and inflammation. In more simple terms, this ingredient stops the transmission of pain caused by inflammation. This Pain Relief gel has an outstanding track record with the management of oesetoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, diabetic neuropathy, post herpatic neuralgia, post mastectomy pain, headaches, fibromyalgia, shingles, psoriasis, itchy skin and gout.
Enough of the big words and technical talk. I can confidently say that both of these gels work miracles! I must admit I was skeptic as to how strong they would be at first, but after my first application, I was hooked. Over the past few months, I have convinced multiple people to try it. One who suffers from ecxema and dermatitis, one from psoriasis, multiple with arthritis and tension headaches, all of whom rave about the benefits and effects of the product. The best thing is, you can get the results without the harm of toxins.
Simply put, Stiff, Sore & Sorry brings about immediate pain relief, draws fresh blood and nutrients to the injured areas to eliminate toxins and inflammation, relaxes the muscles and helps restore flexibility and movement.
Now I am sure many of our readers are thinking the same as I did, it’s all a little too good to be true. I urge you to simply try Stiff, Sore & Sorry. If you can get relief from pain for only $30 per 250mL bottle (which goes a long way may I add!) while protecting your body from unwanted toxins, why would you say no! Helen’s experience, love and passion for natural pain relief have created a product that is taking the beauty, fitness and health industry by storm.
