Whether you’ve been shoveling snow, exercising, or exerting yourself at work, you may have noticed some soreness and aching in your muscles. Although extremely common, aching muscles can leave you feeling uncomfortable and unmotivated. Fortunately, muscle aches typically respond well to home treatments such as Milkweed Balm.
Made with milkweed seed oil, Milkweed Balm is a synergistic blend of GMO-free plant oils that help soothe muscles when applied topically. It’s also combined with ingredients like antioxidants, anti-inflammatory agents and Omega-7 fatty acids. Milkweed Balm is now available in four different formulas including, the original unscented, Anytime; lavender-scented, Downtime; citrus and mint-infused, Go Time; and warm up/workout, Game Time.
It’s important to rest the area of your body where you’re experiencing aches and pains. Applying ice and taking an over-the-counter pain reliever along with Milkweed Balm can help reduce inflammation. Avoid high-impact activities and weight lifting until the pain diminishes. Gentle stretching and stress-relieving activities such as yoga and meditation may also help.
To avoid muscle aches caused by tension and physical activity, try to stretch before workouts, get up and walk around to stretch during the work day, incorporate a warmup and cool down into your exercise sessions, and stay hydrated. If muscle aches don’t go away with home treatment, there could be a more serious underlying condition that may warrant a doctor’s visit.
