I don't exercise as much as I used to, but when I do, I seem to go hell bent for leather, exercising in a go hard or go home manner. Aching muscles and random cramps seem to be part and parcel of what I have come to expect, but I can't say I'm a fan of them!
Thankfully, I've had the luck to discover, and use, the Amazing Oils range, particularly the Pain Relief!
Developed by a family of yoga teachers based in sunny Queensland, this line was created as a result of health problems that became apparent in one of the family members. It has since taken on a life of it's own, and is now a company that boasts a range of different products.
I was given the chance to try the Amazing Oils Magnesium products recently, and I picked Pain Relief to be my go to. I was particularly interested in this one, because I've had experience with magnesium soaks previously, but never a magnesium based roll on for pain relief, and I wanted to see first hand if this would be helpful for my somewhat challenging neck and calves.
The Amazing Oils Magnesium Pain Relief comes as a roll on, with a screw cap, and this retails for $27.50, which gets you 60 ml of product. The product itself is an odourless gel, which has a great consistency. It's not particularly sticky, nor is it watery. It is like a thin gel that will cover the problematic region that you're targeting. I didn't find this to immediately reduce pain, but ongoing use over the course of a few days appeared to really help. I've had intermittent neck issues for the last few years, and I do sometimes seem to make it worse when I try to stretch it out, which is obviously not ideal!
The packaging helps with ease of application, and I like that it doesn't just wipe off, or get sticky.
It's definitely not something I would have thought I needed in my life previously, but absolutely colour me wrong on that aspect - I'm really happy with it, and anything that helps me move better and easier and avoid too many trips to the osteo is something that I'd be delighted to keep using!
