Arthritis Relief

As many of you know I have terrible arthritis. I have had arthritis for as long as I can remember. I have been lucky to be able to continue what I love to do while dealing with arthritis. This past year my arthritis has been so bad that I have had to limit my glass making. Cutting glass by hand was getting way too painful.  Each holiday I always love to make my friends and family glass gifts. I was worried that this year that was not going to
happen.

When I was asked to review Zim's Max-Freeze I thought sure - why not. I am always looking for a pain relieving product for my hands.  The fact that Max-Freeze is formulated with naturally-based ingredients was a huge plus.

Max-Freeze sprays on clear with a refreshing soothing scent. What is nice is the product absorbs into your skin quickly and the scent disappears. I really like the fact that the scent vanishes leaving no scent at all.  Smelling like pain reliever always clashes with my Tresor! 

My hands are especially sore by my wrist and all around my thumb. I have to say the Max-Freeze makes a huge improvement. I am surprised at how the Max-Freeze was able to eliminate much of the pain.

I wondered if the Max-Freeze would continue to work if I used it for a while. It does! I have been using Max-Freeze for about a month and I am happy to say that when I used it before typing this post - it was able to make typing much more pleasant. In fact my can is empty  - so time for me to head to the store to buy more. I like the fact that Max-Freeze is available at my local Walgreen's.

I wanted to share Max-Freeze's ingredients with you. Check it out - all natural and some are organic. 
  • Natural Menthol 3.7% (Purpose: Topical Analgesic)
Inactive Ingredients: *Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, *Arnica Montana Extract, Camphor, Carbomer, Ethylhexylglycerin, *Ilex Paraguariensis Leaf Extract, Isopropyl Alcohol, Phenoxyethanol, Tea Tree Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E Acetate), Water.* Indicates certified organic.
You know how I told you I was worried I would not be able to make some special glass gifts. Well that is not the case thanks to Max-Freeze.  Here are two bracelets that I am giving to my sister-in-law as this post goes live. We are meeting her and Dave at a casino in northern Wisconsin for a two day getaway.  Darla is a Blue Moon Beer drinker and a huge Packer fan. I made her a bracelet from a Blue Moon bottle and added a orange. Plus, a cut glass Packer bracelet with a bee. They are the owners of D's B's Honey.  Me making a Packer bracelet is something that I am not that fond of considering I am a huge BEAR fan! 

Since I reviewed Max-Freeze I have also tried the Max-Freeze Gel - I like it too!

  3. I love this for two reasons.
    A: It's all natural.
    B: It's a spray. I'm a terrible pill taker. They always get stuck in my throat.

  47. I try to buy natural products whenever I can. I don't have arthritis, but my fingers often get sore from typing on the computer all day!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Always great when you find a pain relief that works as promised! (actually anything that works as promised is rare these days!) I love Gaming also, it's been way too long since my last Casino visit, so I'm thinking I'll be super lucky the next time I go!
