Nature to the Rescue – which products to reach for when you’re in pain.

As a child, I can remember running to my mother when I scraped my knee in sports or would have a nauseated stomach. She would caringly walk me to her cupboard of potions, slings, and healing ointments. Somehow, she knew exactly what to do and what to apply— along with a hug— to make it all better. I can recall the deep soothing inhale of eucalyptus and the ease of fennel and ginger on my nervous and nauseous stomach.

Essential oils not only have the power to bring me back to these nostalgic feel-better moments, they can also effectively support the body without any unwanted synthetics. Today, I still turn to those tried and true ingredients to help me on my journey to feeling better, and have put together a list of our favourite products to help you arm yourself against aches and pains.

Extra Strength:

Strong and Mighty

Made extra strong and extra large, this remedy was formulated with big relief in mind. Extra Strength is a stronger option for more urgent and acute pain to complement our Pain Release which was alternatively designed for daily aches and pains. This product is the result of years of research and testing, leading us to what we believe is the most efficacious, hardest working, 100% plant based pain product available.

Key Active Ingredients: Menthol

Why we love this product!

  • Packed full of plant goodness to carry you through urgent and intense acute pain!
  • Unlike other creams and ointments, Extra Strength is blended in a dreamy, no-mess, extra large roller format for easy, targeted application.
  • Extra-large format means you can apply generously as needed.

The journey to healing looks different for everyone, and relies on us checking in with our bodies to ensure we’re getting the support we need. Our lives are meant to be lived, and sometimes when we’re going full steam ahead and something knocks us down, it’s nice to know we can rely on the healing power of plants to help us feel better, naturally.
