“I have been given this product as part of a product review through the Chronic Illness Bloggers network. Although the product was a gift, all opinions in this review remain my own and I was in no way influenced by the company.”
As someone who suffers from Relapse-Remitting Multiple Sclerosis (RRMS), like most people, I am often looking for ways outside of medication to end my pain. Whether it be Epsom salts or lavender baths; or muscle cream- I am always trying something. Living with MS, I know reading this, you think you have tried everything out there, believe me, I am the same way. At one point, I was approached to try Botox injections in my legs.
One day, I got an email asking if I would like to try The Fay Farms “Rejuvenation” Lotion and I thought to myself “like this is going to be any better than any of the others.” Let’s be honest here: what would you think if someone wanted you to try an organic lotion for your aches and pains? Would you actually believe that it was going to help after all of the non-success of the other attempts? I have suffered from RRMS for 10 years and quite honestly, I didn’t believe that I was the right candidate for this particular lotion.
The Rejuvenation Lotion contains CBD oil. And not to turn my post into a chemistry lesson that I’d probably confuse you and myself on: CBD oil is one of the cannabidiol oils that are in medical marijuana. This is one of the items that relieves pain but does not give you the high like marijuana. That would be THC.
When I first received this lotion; the first thing I noticed was the familiar smell of black licorice. I’m not a big fan of the candy, however, found this smell very calming and soothing. For 8 oz, you get a fair amount for $20; my favorite aspect of the bottle is the pump top. This makes it easier to use and easier to keep clean as well. On the bottle, it says it is for “deep muscle and joint relief”. I have gotten into the habit of using this after a shower and after yoga or ballet. And to be honest, I haven’t used it that long, so I don’t know if it is making an impact on my muscles yet; however, I do know it does relax me after using it.
I do know that after using it for the past couple of weeks; I will be using the other products listed on the site in the near future. I know not everyone feels easy and ok with using items with CBD oils in it; I can tell you, by word of mouth I have interested others in buying it.
Hopefully, my review can interest you, the reader, into doing the same.
