In February of 2020 the popular prescription pain relief cream, Voltaren changed to Over the Counter through a process at the FDA called Rx to OTC. This cream was first approved in 2007 to help temporarily relieve arthritis pain. In this blog post, I would like to share with you the ingredient differences between our cream Aromalief and Voltaren made by Novartis.

I can speak from personal experience, Aromalief works like no other topical cream I’ve used. Soon after I rub the cream on it begins to warm up and has a light menthol and lavender scent. Nothing overpowering. I joke all the time that my dogs would no know it’s me without the Aromalief scent.
Aroalief is great for tired achy muscles, arthritis, fibromyalgia, neuropathy pain, I even use for my carpal tunnel in both hands.
Three things I’ve learned since having the opportunity to review Aromalief for Chronic Illness Bloggers are she strives for excellence, guarantees 100% customer satisfaction, and is committed to the pain community. The bonus for me is Aromalief is WOMEN owned and made in America.
Here’s a copy of my review for Aromalief Lavender Hemp Pain Cream.
