The founder of Aromalief, Annabel has given me permission to post this from the Aromalief blog. I know many of you suffer from knee pain, so I wanted to share the information in her latest post.

Knee pain can have a huge impact in your day to day life, even more so if it’s chronic. Unfortunately, most pain relief creams focus on numbing the pain, instead of helping the actual problem. In this week’s blog, we’re going over what benefits make for a good pain relief cream for knee pain, and how these benefits go beyond just numbing the pain. 

The best pain relief cream for knees needs to have 3 critical benefits. The pain relief cream should have an anti-inflammatory, an analgesic, and nutrients to help keep the knees fluid. Most pain relief creams for the knees contain one or two of these benefits, but Aromalief Hemp Pain Relief Cream helps with all 3. Let’s discuss these in more detail.

Topical Analgesic Menthol and Menthol Crystals for Instant Knee Pain Relief Aromalief

When your knees are in pain it can be from either an acute injury or a chronic condition such as arthritis. The topical analgesic will help with the immediate pain. In Aromalief, we use a combination of menthol for fast relief and menthol crystals that release a cooling effect over time to provide a longer lasting pain relieving effect. It is important to massage the area to keep the blood flowing. However, this can be even more painful without a topical analgesic. Most creams stop at just this benefit, but anti-inflammatory is also important.

When a part of the body hurts, white blood cells rush to help it fix the injury. This increase in blood to the area causes the knee to swell. Common anti-inflammatory ingredients are NSAIDs (diclofenac) or Salicylates (aspirin), these may be available in oral or cream form. Aromalief contains rich hemp oil, l-arginine, and MSM to bring down the inflammation and keep the blood flowing as a more natural alternative.

The third critical factor to get relief from pain in your knees is to keep the knees lubricated. Imagine a machine that moves forwards and backwards every single day without oil. Eventually, the machine breaks down, the same thing happens as we age, have an injury, or a chronic illness. People typically take Glucosamine/Chondroitin oral supplements to help prevent the deterioration of the knees, but over time the pills can begin to hurt the stomach. The other downside is that by taking them orally, the effect is spread out throughout the body and eventually discarded. Aromalief contains a special type of Glucosamine that is derived from plants and the chondroitin in Aromalief is even rarer since it is obtained through a fermentation process from cultivated algae. 

How to Use Aromalief Hemp Pain Relief Cream for your Knees?

It is best to apply Aromalief 2-3 times per day for at least the first 10 days because your knees probably have a significant amount of damage. Gently massage a nickel size amount over each knee when you first wake up and when you go to bed. If you walk a lot or work standing up, you should also apply it midday, although it may not always be possible. As soon as you are home, lay on our back and raise your legs up against a wall or over some pillows to improve your circulation.

Something else to consider is to apply Aromalief to your hips. Oftentimes, your knees could hurt because of a misalignment to the hips. By massaging your hips and stretching them you could release tendons and ligaments that are pulling on your knee. This is better assessed by a physical therapist, but it shouldn’t be ignored. Even though you are feeling pain in your knees, the root cause can be somewhere else. 

It is always important to ask your doctor before using these or any other creams. Even though products don’t require a prescription, it is still important to get their medical opinion.
