I'm in so much pain every day, that I'm always excited to hear about and/or try something new that may help to alleviate my pain even if just a bit! When I was extended the invitation to try Mo's Dream Cream and No Mo Pain Stick, I was completely stoked!
I anxiously waited on the mail to come, and was so happy when I recieved the little padded envelope! I didn't even wait until I got home to open it, I tore right into it as soon as I got back into my Jeep. The first thing I noticed as I was opening it, was the smell. I'm very sensitive to scents, and I won't lie, I was a little offput by the odor. I wasn't going to let that stop me though. I rushed home and put it on my aching legs. Once on for a few minutes, you don't notice the smell much. It just takes a little getting used to!
The creator of Mo's Dream Cream is a lady named Keri. Keri suffered with pain, and didn't like the current options to relieve her pain. So, she gathered up some all natural ingredients and created this wonderful lotion!
Putting the lotion on my legs, I noticed that it's a little runny so be careful when pouring it out. I've found that it doesn't take very much at all. The old saying "a little goes a long way" holds true with this. The letter from Keri that accompanied the lotion and the No Mo Pain Stick, said that it can start working in as little as 5 minutes after applying. I looked at the time on my computer, and was going to keep track and see how quickly it worked for me. I have to admit that I was having a fibro fog day though, and all of a sudden I looked back at the clock and saw it'd been 10 minutes. My legs didn't hurt anymore ....now "when" in that 10 minute time frame they stopped hurting I couldn't tell ya lol! I actually had to laugh out loud at myself, because when I looked at the time I thought "Hey! My legs don't hurt anymore! When did that happen?" lol.
This cream (lotion as I like to call it) works for anywhere from 6-10 hours, depending on what type of pain it's being used for. I can say that my relief lasted for about 8.5 hours. It's main ingredient is Capsaicin Paste, and I can say it really does work! Keri markets it for several different types of pain, such as: Fibromyalgia, Neuropathy, Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Planter Fisciitis, and Restless Leg Syndrome. Adding a couple more of my own health issues of CRPS, DDD, and bulging discs, I can say it's helped me with the pain of everything I have!
I love the No Mo Pain Stick, because it's easy to throw in your purse and take with you on the go. I also found that the scent of the stick isn't quite as strong as the lotion. Personally, I don't think the stick works *quite* as good as the lotion, but it does still work and works well enough that I definitely carry it with me everywhere I go!
If you're looking for a homemade, all natural product to relieve your pain I definitely recommed these two products! You can check them out and order, from the link I posted in the first paragraph! -I don't think you'll be sorry!
