For quite some time now, I've been recommending to some customers mixing my classic relEASE 250 Hemp CBD Salve with my Kink Away Magnesium Cream. Why? Because the combination is PHENOMENAL at helping support sciatic health among other things.
How Ease Away came to be
I have to give my husband, Richard, credit for this gem. My husband has multiple disabling injuries. The first one he received while on active duty in the Air Force after he fell through a roof. Landing on concrete from 20 feet above is never good, and the fall left him with permanent spinal cord injuries.
Not to be deterred from supporting his young family with his first wife, he worked a variety of jobs that further exacerbated his injuries. Eventually he worked as a correctional officer in a state prison, but with the help of the easily prescribed opiates of the time was able to keep working despite his back. 10 years in as a guard he was responding to an emergency and slipped on a wet floor, completely detaching his ACL and destroying the meniscus.
To say my husband understands daily chronic pain is an understatement.
relEASE 250 Hemp CBD Salve
When I first met my husband, he used to tease me for my "hippie dippie" products. Now, of course, he's one of my biggest supporters and an avid fan. relEASE 250 was one of the first products he used that changed his mind.
Using my salve has been instrumental in maintaining his knee, as well as the developing arthritis in his hands. There is always- ALWAYS- a container of relEASE 250 with us when we leave the house for any extended period of time. And while it's been great for those body parts, relEASE 250 has never worked very well on his back.
While it gave him slight, temporary relief, it was never quite enough to make a real difference. I even making him a special batch with more CBD just to see if it would work better, but it wasn't enough.
Kink Away Magnesium Cream
Despite taking magnesium supplements, my husband still gets severe muscle cramps at times when he's been compensating for his back and knee for too long. I'll hear him gasp, then call out for the Kink Away. Within a minute or so, he's back to normal. If you ask him what his favorite Simple Apothecary product is, invariably he'll say, Kink Away.
Topical magnesium does a great job of working directly on the muscles it is applied to. It can help soften and relax even the largest muscle groups, making it excellent for post-workout recovery.
Magnesium is also critical for healthy nerve function. Irritated nerves are incredibly painful and can be difficult to deal with. Reduced magnesium levels are associated with higher inflammation throughout the body. As you can imagine, this is NOT a good combination, especially if you're dealing with chronic pain.
Dealing with his spinal injury and then trying to compensate for his injuries while just living his daily life, Richard has now developed severe sciatic pain, or sciatica. So the poor guy will have days where his lower back is so tight, he can barely move.
I had given him countless massages with either the relEASE 250 or the Kink Away when one day he asked, what if we mix the two together before putting them on my back?
Umm... I don't know, let's try it. So we did.
For the first time in years, his lower back relaxed to the point of almost no discomfort, all without any additional medication. It was that dramatic.
From there, I knew I had to come up with a product that combined those two amazing remedies. Ease Away was born.
The Tricky Part
What kills me being in the business of hemp CBD are the legal restrictions on claims you can make. I can't tell you all the different things this could work for. I've even hesitated putting my husband's story to paper as I don't want it to be interpreted as "making medical claims". Any CBD manufacturer, store, etc. that is making specific medical claims is actually doing so illegally.
So I'm going to use my words carefully for this next part.
What Ease Away is Good For
Ease Away combines full-spectrum hemp CBD oil, with synergistic essential oils AND topical magnesium chloride. Having the combination of hemp CBD with magnesium, helps to further the beneficial properties of each.
I already know this to be true with the proprietary blend of infused oils and essential oils I created for relEASE 250. By itself, the oil blend was okay. By itself, the hemp CBD oil was okay. It wasn't until I put the two together that it took on a new life and the incredible abilities my customers rave about to me.
Adding in magnesium oil to this potent combination has done the same thing.
Ease Away combines those potent ingredients to create something entirely new and amazing. My recommendation is to use it to help support sciatica, major musculoskeletal injuries, as well as to aid in surgery recovery (as long as there isn't any open wound). Anywhere there is a combination of muscle and nerve issues, this would be where I would use Ease Away.
Should I switch from Kink Away or relEASE 250?
If they're working for you already, no need! If you use either of my products successfully, there is no need to switch. If you find they don't work on certain issues you may have in your body, then it may be a good idea to try out Ease Away.
Keep in mind that if you already have a jar of each, you can make your own! Simply take equal parts of the Kink Away and relEASE 250, combine them in your hands, then rub them into your problem areas. Massage in those wonderful remedies for 3-5 minutes. Then set a timer for 20 minutes and see how you feel.
Why a timer? I've found many customers have tried out my products, then not even realize they feel better. Setting a timer reminds you to check in with yourself to see where you are on the pain scale.
The difference between my salve and other companies
There are a LOT of hemp CBD companies out there. A lot. So what makes Simple Apothecary different? First of all, if you've never tried a topical hemp CBD salve yet I have a blog post talking about the questions you should be asking when making a decision. These are practical questions that need to be asked as hemp CBD regulation is still sketchy at best.
Beyond that, here is what makes Simple Apothecary different.
- What’s on the label, is what’s in the jar. Levels of CBD and trace amounts of THC are backed up with random third-party lab testing.
- 12 infused and essential oils create a synergistic effect working much better than any ingredient on its own, which means less CBD is needed to get results.
- Full-spectrum hemp oil means a wider variety of cannabinoids and terpenes are present for maximum effectiveness.
- Magnesium chloride is the best form of magnesium for topical use. This means it goes through your skin into the muscles the easiest.
- Organic and non-GMO ingredients are carefully chosen.
- Healing intentions are set with every product, bringing that good energy directly to you.
- Only sustainable, reusable, and recyclable packaging is used.
The Clear Difference
|Levels of CBD & trace-amounts of THC are lab verified||Unverified or inconsistent levels of CBD & THC|
|Full-spectrum hemp extract||Less effective CBD isolates or THC-free|
|12 infused & essential oils in a proprietary blend||Might have 1 or 2 essential oils or just camphor|
|Natural & organic ingredients||Questionable ingredients & chemicals|
|Packaging is sustainable, reusable & recyclable||
Packaging is single-use
|Made in small, quality-controlled handcrafted batches||
Mass produced with only money in mind
|As a small & independent business, Simple Apothecary is run with ethics||
Corporate business with investors & shareholders mean profits over people
Ease Away Hemp CBD Salve with Magnesium & Essential Oils
Ease Away is available in two sizes: a 0.5 oz trial-size tin and a 2 oz amber glass jar. Product packaging for Simple Apothecary products is always ecofriendly, recyclable (or compostable), and usually reusable. This is just one way I run my business with ethics.
I look forward to hearing back from customers on how this game-changing hemp CBD salve has worked for them!
