The older we get, the more prone we are to muscle pain and soreness due to tension, stress, and over-exertion. And there are a gazillion products available in the market offering muscle relief. These products come in many forms, including as balms, salves, ointments and liniments, oils, and oral medication.
Kodil Oils has its own remedy for sore muscles. We have our Muscle Relief Cooling Gel. Our muscle relief formula contains CBD, arnica, Bulgarian Scots pine oil, peppermint oil, and wintergreen oil.
But do you know what each of these highlighted ingredients can do and how it can help with your sore and achy muscles? Let’s talk about these ingredients one by one.
CBD: What Can it Do?
Kodil Oils Muscle Relief Cooling Gel has CBD, which is known to be a potent painkiller. According to the United States National Centers for Complementary and Integrative Health, studies suggest that CBD could have modest pain relief effects.
Healthline wrote that researchers think CBD interacts with our endocannabinoid system’s core component: endocannabinoid receptors. These receptors are abundant in our immune system and in our central nervous system. They are tiny proteins that are attached to our cells and that receive chemical signals from various stimuli and help our cells respond.
This response creates an effect that helps fight and manage pain and infection.
CBD is also great for arthritis pain. Although scientists admit that more studies and clinical trials are needed.
So with Kodil Oils Muscle Relief Gel, not only do you get the soothing, painkilling action that you need, but you can rely on it to make your skin look better. You can say that this anti-aging effect is a welcome bonus!
Arnica (Arnica montana) is an herb that is native to central Europe, Siberia, and in North American regions with temperate climates. The flowers of the arnica plant are used in homeopathic and alternative medicine.
According to PennState Hershey – Milton S. Hershey Medical Center, arnica is used as a treatment for bruises, muscle aches, sprains, wounds, joint pain, superficial phlebitis, swelling due to broken bones, inflammation from insect bites, and even burns. It is also used in homeopathic preparations for treating sore muscles caused by injury and overexertion.
Arnica is a common ingredient in many sports supplements, ointments, salves, and liniments, among others.
Bulgarian Scots Pine Oil
Scots Pine essential oil, which comes from the Pinus Sylvestris trees in Bulgaria, is used for its toning, antiseptic, antibacterial, antiviral, expectorant, and deodorizing properties. This oil gives the skin a smooth, radiant, balanced, and renewed appearance. It is also used to strengthen hair, activate mental activity, stimulate the adrenal gland, stimulate the immune system, cleanse the system of toxins, and improve microcirculation. It has a refreshing scent and is used to purify the air and to add flavor to certain dishes.
This oil is widely used in the cosmetic industry as an ingredient for creams and lotions. And not only does it tone and refresh the skin, but it also helps calm nervous tension as well as treat various skin problems like eczema, psoriasis, acne, and pruritus.
Adding this oil in the Kodil Oils Muscle Relief Cooling Gel would therefore do wonders to your skin.
Peppermint Essential Oil
The oil from peppermint or Mentha piperita is used for flavoring in food and drinks, and for fragrance in cosmetics and body care products. But it is also used for a variety of health purposes.
Peppermint oil can be used for topical application to relieve problems like headache, joint pain, muscle aches, and itching. It is also used aromatically for respiratory support and comfort, including treatment of coughs, colds, and sinus infections. It is also used in aromatherapy to improve mental function, relieve pain, and reduce stress.
This oil is also being promoted for the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome and other problems related to the digestive system.
Peppermint contributes to the cooling and soothing sensation of ointments, balms, salves, and other topical products.
Wintergreen Essential Oil
Wintergreen essential oil is extracted from the leaves of the North American wintergreen plant (Gaultheria procumbens). It contains an active aromatic compound called methyl salicylate, which has a cool and soothing property.
The methyl salicylate in wintergreen is closely related to aspirin as it has anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. This is why products that contain wintergreen essential oil are typically used as a topical pain reliever and an anti-inflammatory solution.
Wintergreen in Kodil Oils Muscle Relief Gel adds to its cooling and soothing effect.
