- The following is a sponsored post written for Methonol. Although I have received payment to write this post, all opinions in this review remain my own, and I was in no way influenced by the aforementioned company.
It is a simple fact of life.
The older I get, the more help I need when it comes to pain relief.
Both my husband and I, due to our chosen hobbies, can quite often be found scouring the pain relief aisle at the corner drug store.
‘D’ is a black belt in Brazillian Jiu Jitsu, and I am one of those people for whom knitting has become an addiction.
Therefore, when I was offered the opportunity to sample and review Methonol Pain Relief Cream with Seanol-S® Arnica Oil, & Emu Oil, we both jumped at the chance!
The day after I received my sample of Menthonol Pain Relief Cream, we were presented with the perfect opportunity to try it out.
‘D’ woke up with one of the frequent and miserable tension headaches he has been plagued with as of late.
These headaches can last up to three days and are accompanied by; upper back and shoulder muscle tension, nausea, and severe eye pain.
We were all set, and ready to give Menthonol a shot!
As with most pain relief creams, Menthonol had a distinct ‘mint’ smell.
I personally love this scent, as it produces in my mind feelings of coolness, warmth, and healing all at the same time.
The second thing that struck me about this product was that unlike other sports and joint pain relief creams I have used in the past, Menthonol did not leave a typical ‘greasy’ residue on the skin that so often accompanies other name brand products.
This was something I could really appreciate considering I had other things to do, and did not wish to spend the next half an hour trying to get rid of a slick film covering my hands.
After working the product into ‘D’s upper shoulder, I rubbed it into my own hands below my thumbs where I experience most of my aching pain from knitting, life, and generally getting older!
No greasiness to be found, just hands that felt clean and minty.
We both felt it working right away.
There was a soothing, cooling sensation that began to work on ‘D’s tight back and shoulder muscles, and on my hand joints right away.
Within about 2 minutes we both experienced a significant reduction in the pain we felt.
So, we asked ourselves, “What makes Menthonol unique in comparison to the other pain relief sports and joint creams that we have tried before?”
There are 5 main ingredients that makes Menthonol stand out:
Unique Properties Found In Menthonol Seanol-S
Seanol-S ~ water and oil soluble based marine polyphenols that do all sorts of wonderful things for your pain relief, like: reduce inflammation through anti-oxidation, help contraction and relaxation of blood vessels through enzyme inhibition, improve blood flow circulation
Menthol ~ reduces pain/burning from inflammation through a ‘cooling’ effect
Camphor ~ increases circulation thereby helping relieve pain in stiff joints and muscles
Arnica Oil ~ stimulates flow of white blood cells which helps disperse fluid trapped in bruised tissue, muscles, and joints
Emu Oil ~ penetrates deep below the surface layer of skin to reduce swelling and ease joint pain
I will definitely be using Menthonol Seanol-S again!
Considering the extensive scientific research, as well as my own personal experience with this product, I feel good about recommending Menthonol Seanol-S to anyone looking for effective/natural topical pain relief.
