As you may have heard once or twice, we’ve had a rough winter up here in the North. Complaining about the weather is our official state sport (you thought it was hockey, didn’t you?!). It’s the Minnesotan way of greeting our fellow Vikings.
But seriously, our snowfall has broken records, and many of us feel like it’s broken our backs with it. Let us clue you in on our secret weapon ---- our Aches & Pains collection. We’ve created a line of products developed for just this type of winter using our Aches & Pains synergistic blend. Ranging from massage oil to bath salts to bar soap to cream, you’re bound to find something that works for your particular ache or pain.
Sweet Birch has a long history in traditional medicine, historically has been thought to support the body’s muscular and joint systems. Birch can help ease minor muscle aches and cramps, and its minty aroma is pleasantly invigorating. Clove Bud can help reduce inflammation and improve blood circulation, helping your body recover after exertion. Rosemary has been used in folk medicine as a mild pain reliever and can help increase circulation and reduce inflammation in joints.
Black Pepper, Coriander Seed, and Cypress are known to be an antispasmodics and can help relieve cramping muscles and reduce muscle spasms. Marjoram is helpful in soothing aching muscles in addition to being a powerful antispasmodic.
All of these hard-hitters are packed into our Aches & Pains synergistic blend, which is why it’s the first thing we reach for after we put the shovel down. By the second snowstorm of the week we’re doubling down on our Aches & Pains collection, soaking in a tub with A&P bath salts and rubbing A&P cream into our aching limbs. Or maybe washing up with A&P bar soap in the shower followed by a targeted application of A&P roll-on to ease that throbbing shoulder.
Don’t worry that you won’t have anything to add to conversations when your back no longer aches from shoveling…..mosquito season is right around the corner, and dare we mention road construction?
