As the gatekeepers of our home we have such a great opportunity to bring in healthy products for ourselves and families! Join us as we detox our homes and switch out conventional products for cleaner, greener and better options! For April, let’s make a simple swap that can make a big difference - Cool Azul Pain Relief Cream! Say goodbye to all the stinky muscle rubs and grab a tube of Cool Azul Pain Relief Cream!

Let’s talk about conventional over the counter pain and muscle rubs for just a second. Did you know that products like ‘Icy Hot’ simply contain ingredients that make your skin tingle so you forget about the muscle pain beneath it? They don’t actually help support the muscles, tendons and tissues that are in need of help. Plus they are filled with less than ideal ingredients like petrolatum, artificial colorants and fragrance.

Here’s a quick low-down on the real “F word” - fragrance. Fragrance is a very loosely defined term when it comes to use in personal care and household products. Fragrance and synthetic perfumes are problematic because companies aren’t required to disclose the exact ingredients in the fragrances. Even ‘natural fragrance’ is problematic. Just because something is natural, doesn’t mean we want to rub it on our skin (ie: formaldehyde - a naturally occurring compound that we don’t want on our skin!). So the ‘fragrance’ listed in those muscle rubs could be just about anything… and we don’t want to rub that all over our skin, especially when we need some relief!

Enter Cool Azul Pain Relief Cream! This is one of our absolute favorite products, especially when paired with a little Deep Relief or the CBD Joint & Muscle Balm!! Pulled or overtired muscles, tension headaches, arthritis, back aches, any ache or pain really! Just a dab of the pain cream, rub in well and roll on your Deep Relief a few minutes later and you're good to go!

The Cool Azul Pain Relief Cream blends Wintergreen oil and Peppermint oil with other high quality ingredients that are amazing for your whole body. The pain-relieving benefits come about in two ways: methyl salicylate found in Wintergreen helps alleviate pain deep in the muscles and joints, and natural menthol found in Peppermint provides a lovely cooling effect. This formula doesn’t just make your skin tingle like other OTC pain creams - it actually gets to the muscles to help relieve the pain and support healing. It is also considered an over the counter product, making Young Living the only essential oil company to have OTC items!
