We’re in the process of introducing you to each of the products we carry at Wellspring Centre, and to let you know why we selected these products, and why you might choose to use them to meet your wellness goals. Last week we introduced you to our DREAM Complete Liquid Multivitamin (CLICK HERE to read more), and today we want to help you get to know a great way to get out of pain quickly, with no pills involved.
Rapid Ease Topical Pain Relief: When you’re in pain and you can’t get in to see your doctor or massage therapist right away, you need Rapid Ease! This topical pain reliever is an icy/hot mix of essential oils in a base of arnica-infused olive oil, blended locally by Alley Joy, a former member of our Wellspring team. Arnica is an herb with a long history of use for pain and physical trauma, calming inflammation and bruising when applied topically, and the mixture of lavender, clove, peppermint and eucalyptus oils produce a warming effect that reduces feelings of pain. Our staff uses it not only for injury and inflammation, but also a tiny bit on the temples or the back of the neck for a headache. However, if you are scent-sensitive or your injury is hot and swollen, this spicy, warming topical preparation may not be the right choice for you. For most of us, however, Rapid Ease is a great tool to have in your medicine cabinet, especially if you prefer not to take over the counter pain medication.
