Alright people, listen up! If you have ever suffered from backaches, arthritis, sore muscles and joints, sprains, stains or bruising, you NEED to know about Biofreeze® and what it can do for you. Normally I give you a nice little intro and lead up to what I am talking about, but I am cutting to the chase today. Why? Because Biofreeze® is nothing new to me! In fact, if you have been a reader for a while, you probably remember me mentioning it! Most recently I featured it on "My Office Essentials" post, but I've also shared it on "My Fitness Update" and "Happy People Just Don't Shoot Their Husbands"!

I was first introduced to Biofreeze®  circa 2008 by the chiropractor I went to at that time. Yes, you got that right... I have been using it for almost 10 years!! Since then, Biofreeze® has been one of my purse staples - I don't go anywhere without it! Whenever I had runner's knee, it was key for my temporary relief, but injuries and soreness due to athletics isn't my main use of it...want to know what it is? HEADACHES! Yep. I put Biofreeze® on the back of my neck and let the United States Pharmacopeia (USP) grade menthol provide fast acting pain relief! (oh and it is free of parabens and propylene glycol, too!) *insert girl emoji with her hand cocked* I had athlete friends in college (you know...the real kind, not my measly excuse for a run, haha) and they were shocked to hear that I used Biofreeze® for headache relief...mainly just because they had never thought of that. I get headaches pretty regulary and don't have time for sick days. Biofreeze® helps so much, especially those days I have to tough it out at work!

There are several versions of Biofreeze® that you can buy. My favorite? The roll on! It's easy to carry and mess free! I just roll-on and get along with my busy schedule! More so than knee pain, I have back pain because 1) I have scoliosis and 2) I sit at a desk all day. Lower back pain can be THE WORST. Because of Biofreeze® it is so easy to go on living my day. I do use it for pain relief, but I also like to use it before yoga or a run, to invigorate my muscles pre-work out! I don't know...there's just something about the cooling effect it has that just makes my body feel good.

Interested in Biofreeze®, but want to know more? Its products are a safe and effective pain relief alternative because they are non-systemic, non-narcotic, and contain no NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs), salicylates or addictive substances. Also, they don't require a prescription!  I usually purchase the signature green, but is also available in colorless (dye-free) formats, is never tested on animals, and are produced in the United States. To find out where Biofreeze®is sold near you, check out this list.

Have you ever used Biofreeze®? Do you have any uses for it that aren't in the norm, like me? Do share!!
