Like many of you, I struggle with chronic pain – whether it is my hands and fingers, or my back and legs, it is an ongoing battle. So during the midst of COVID, when I was approached about trying Aromalief’s Hemp Pain Relief and giving an honest review, I was pretty excited.
I have had a lot of success with hemp products in the past and they have become a part of my daily regimen. Through Aromalief’s outreach, I was able to try two products, the Hemp Pain Relief (which contains 1000 MG of hemp) and also the Calming Pain Relief (which also contains 1000 mg of hemp).
My Honest Review: Before I go into specific details about each product such as ingredients, scent, etc. I want to share my personal experience. I was happy to notice that both products did provide relief, particularly for my back pain and especially my finger pain. The texture is smooth, not greasy, and as someone who is obsessed with the smell of lavender, I loved the scent! If you prefer lighter scents, you’ll want to note that the Calming Pain Relief is specifically made with a lighter scent. I could see more improvement the more I used the product and typically within the hour of application.
The Nitty Gritty
Ok, so now for ingredients, which I have to say, were well thought out and researched. I am pretty picky about what I will put on my skin. In addition, I want to point out that these products are vegan and do not contain glucosamine/chondroitin from shellfish (I am severely allergic). Here are a few product ingredients that really stood out to me (you can see full ingredient list on the website).
Hemp (Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil) -Hemp Seed Oil is full of Omega 3s and 6s that can help to reduce inflammation in the body. The hemp in Aromalief products is completely legal and non-hallucinogenic, so there is no need to worry about drug testing.
Glucosamine – Your body naturally produces Glucosamine in your joints and acts as a lubricant to help you move joints with ease. Over time or through an injury you may lose glucosamine in the body and start to experience a “bone on bone” pain. Typical Glucosamine is harvested from shellfish, but the Glucosamine in Aromalief comes through a complex process to extract it from purely botanicals. In addition to being a great vegan alternative, it is also safe to use by those that are allergic to shellfish.
Chondroitin – You could say that Glucosamine and Chondroitin are the best of friends. Chondroitin is found the connective tissue of humans and animals and works in combination with Glucosamine to support joint health. It is great for reducing inflammation and repairing micro-tears in tendons and ligaments, but we weren’t happy with the fact that it comes from shark cartilage. We searched for over a year to find a vegan Chondroitin for Aromalief, and through the advances in science and plant-based processes we found it. Our 100% vegan Chondroitin gives you all the benefits without harming any animals in the process.
