Brand Spotlight: Biofreeze Cold Therapy Pain Relief

Back PainSince early March of 2015, I have been suffering from extremely tight back and neck muscles from a combination of sports injury, bad posture, and job stress (see my other blog posts on Burnout Syndrome and Cell Phone Neck). Thankfully, our friends at the OMNI Health and Rehab Clinic were able to get me back on track, through a customized treatment plan, designed specifically for me. This treatment plan included the use of the Biofreeze Cold Therapy Pain Relief family of products. The Biofreeze Pain Reliever products use a clinical strength formula consisting of the active ingredient menthol with a synergistic blend of inactive ingredients. The resulting formula offers quick, effective pain relief without the use of prescription drugs, and is designed to target pain quickly. I have tried countless other brands of topical anesthetic, but Biofreeze is clearly the winner in my books! RUB-A535, Voltaren, and Tiger Balm don't even sit in the same realm of comparison.

They are usually extracted through steam distillation, but can also be extracted by cold pressing. Essential oils have been around for many years due to their many uses: flavouring, adding scent and health uses. You can either dilute the specific oil in a carrier oil which is then massaged into the skin, diffuse the oil in the air, heat over a flame or burn it as incense. ancient-essential-oils-information-1.1-800X800Essential oils as well as plant extracts have been known throughout history since the beginning of time and are considered by many to be the missing link in modern medicine.

Brand Spotlight: Mahalo Skincare

I've seen a lot of talk about Mahalo Skincare in the world of green beauty and thought that I should take a chance on it as well.
