I get muscle aches more often than I'd like. Before I hit the medicine cabinet, this is my first step to feeling better.
The Sore Muscle Rub from Badger radiates a subtle wave of warmth when I work it into my skin. Although it's in balm form, there's no greasiness and its easily absorbed. Being the aromatherapy nut that I am, I absolutely love the ginger scent which feels so soothing.
After that applying the balm, I nuke my Soothe Herbal Pack (which is like a small pillow) in the microwave for a minute. I'm not sure what secret thing is inside - feels to me like beads of some sort. I also detect a combination of lavender & camphor based on the scent. What I do is leave it on the sore area until the warmth fades away.
I store the herbal pack in the freezer when not in use and as a cold compress, it works wonders in helping me recover from migraine headaches.
Have you tried using alternative ways to heal? What works for you?
