Having had some real success with a few of the new products and tools I’ve tried lately, I’ve decided I’m going to share one or two of them in their own posts for ease of reference on Living Whole. By the way, they are are also listed in my Health Resources page above.
My readers already know I am a long-time fan of CBD oil and use it most days (see previous posts on this for more information as to how and why). However, I am relately new to CBD topicals but began searching for one early this year to counter the over-winter increased levels of nerve, joint and other pain as part of my renewed determination to manage acute flare-ups before they had the chance to settle into the chronic groove (which can then become yet another loop of behaviour that is very hard to feel your way out of). Pain often begets more pain…unless you can interupt it, and that’s where CBD comes in.
After some experimention, I can report that I have enjoyed wonderful results from using this CBD Relief Balm from Evopure for topical pain relief, including the kind of pain associated with fibromyagia, joint issues including EDS and arthritis, also for neuraligia (and, I’m sure, many other conditions but these are the core of mine). It contains organic broad spectrum, lab tested CBD and is made in small batches in what is a highly well-intentioned cottage industry based here in the UK (using organic CBD grown in Colorado).
I have been using this for a couple of months now and it is my absolute go-to for these kinds of pain…and the overall best out of several high-end CBD topicals that I’ve now tried. I also used it to successfully undergo dental treatment, managing to completely avoid my (usually inevitable) TMJ, head and facial nerve pain by applying to the jaw and neck area both before and straight afterwards. The wonderful botanical aroma was also extremely soothing throughout the entire procedure.
Even with skin irritations caused by nerve activity such as allodynia, generalised sensitivity, neuropathy, Reynauds, even hives, rosacea and psoriasis, I have found it extremely useful and swift at avoiding a flare.
It comes in 2 versions: The smaller pot of salve (15ml) smells divine and is great on wrists, fingers, temples and smaller areas. The larger muscle balm (45ml) pot, with its lovely botanical, berry-infused aroma, is great for covering larger areas of muscle such as back, neck and shoulders, thighs etc. They are an absolute joy to use and very powerfully and quickly effective (I have managed to halt the kind of intense muscle cramps that used to lock me up in agony with quickest application so I always have a pot somewhere in reach…the small pot is highly portable, even in a pocket). If you explore their website, you will find that mine is not the only great review, by far.
You can also subscribe for a very generous discount (just £23.99/pot) so you never run out in a crisis! Visit evopure.co.uk to explore the full range (which includes oils and capsules).
