I've been using A. Vogel Absolut Arnica pain-relief gel for a couple of years and I just love it!
A. Vogel Absolut Arnica helps to relieve all kinds of pain: joints, muscles, arthritis, over-training, sprains... in a natural and drug-free way.
For me, it's been a Godsend for alleviating the pain associated with my foot problems which started quite a while back. The result (or so my doctor surmised) of wearing very flat sandals one recent summer, combined with my very high foot arches and miles and miles of walking every day. This resulted in painful plantar faciitis (in my left foot only, go figure).
After a series of physio treatments, my foot has improved quite a bit but it still flares up when I do too much walking; especially on inclines,uneven streets and bumpy paths (the norm in our city). On days like that, I truly appreciate the effectiveness of this product.
Absolut Arnica gel is made with organically grown arnica flowers (click to read more about the healing properties of this plant).
-This product can be used to soothe many types of pain and inflammation caused by sprains, overexertion and arthritis too.
-Pleasant to apply, non-greasy and with no overpowering scent.
-Works quickly to relieve pain and without the use of harmful chemicals, drugs or other questionable ingredients.
-Apply sparingly (a little goes a long way) with no rubbing required.
-Reasonably priced too. Locally a 50 ML tube sells for about $14. CDN. I note the price on Amazon is even better.
You can read more about this soothing gel and many other innovative, natural products/remedies at the company's website. I was also happy to note that they do not test their products on animals.
If you've been looking for a natural pain-relief gel or rub that really works and quickly too Absolut Arnica might be a product you'll want to try for yourself.
F.Y.I. Amazon is still showing the old packaging but this is the same product.
Overall rating for this product: Excellent. 5 out of 5.
