CBD Salve Premium

I was told about this salve at my local wellness shop. Supposedly everyone had been raving about it and was the #1 best seller out of all the CBD topical ointments there. So after a few weeks debating which one to try, I opted for this one.

I’m now a fangirl of this as well. I felt immediate relief on even my most problematic joints. This has a mixture of hemp, avocado, jojoba oil and various essential oils such as moringa, sweet birch, clove and lavender, to name a few.

The CBD oil which reads as ‘cannabidiol’ is the six ingredient but don’t let that fool you. This is pretty strong stuff and although I would like a product that’s labeled ‘CBD Salve Premium’ to have CBD as their first ingredient, it still does the trick.

This has a very emollient texture, so if you don’t like feeling greasy then use it before bedtime or when you don’t need to be running around.

Applying with a cotton ball will keep it clean and not messy.

*Family and friend approved. Most pure list of ingredients. I keep this one at home unless I’m traveling or need to use it other places besides my hands.


Mary’s Nutritional’s Compound

This product has menthol and hemp extract as the main focus ingredients. This didn’t really help with pain and inflammation as fast as the CBD Salve Premium above, but it did seem to work.

More than anything it kept my hands feeling moisturized since it has mango butter, jojoba oil and other agents that help with dry skin.

This has a creamy texture as well and would be best for the winter months or when you feel the need give your skin some R & R.

*Family and friend approved. Most pure list of ingredients. Very small sample I received at my wellness shop. It can get messy. I’m not a huge fan of taking salves with me places, rather use a product that’s packaged in a convenient bottle with an easy to open cap.


Uyan Nomo

This is a joint comfort natural relief cream found on Amazon or directly from the company, Siberian Health.

Some of the key ingredients are Siberian fur, comfrey root, eucalyptus, chondroitin, papain, rosemary oil, clove oil and boswellia.

It does have a strong scent, so if you’re not into that then this product isn’t for you.

One of my massage therapists introduced me to this and it does manage to calm down any pain and inflammation I may be experiencing pretty quickly.

*Family and friend approved. Semi-natural ingredients. Easy to use packaging and can fit into a purse or bag for on the go application.



The company states that these products are, “produced in conformance with the FDA requirements for topical analgesics and are made in an FDA-audited facility, which helps ensure the highest quality controls in raw ingredients, manufacturing and packaging.”

They are made with all natural ingredients, not tested on animals and are doctor recommended.

I was able to test out three different versions seen below; Arthritis, Back & Neck and Active Sport.

Each of the active ingredients for each category are camphor and menthol. The one thing I wasn’t too sure of was the ‘cotton seed oil’ as that isn’t a typical ingredient I have seen in other pain and inflammation relieving products for arthritis.

The Active Sport version comes as balm which has a roll-on type of look. So if you want precision application and don’t care to get it on your hands or having someone else applying it for you, this is a good option. I liked this and the regular packaging, both have something different to offer.

It did relieve discomfort but the smell is on stronger side. I don’t mind the menthol smell. Those who are sensitive to it might.

*Almost all natural. The packaging does list that some contain sorbic and stearic acid. Packaging is well-made and easy to use. It can fit into a purse or bag.


Diclofenac Sodium Topical Gel 1 %

Sometimes chronic pain and inflammation calls for prescription ointment. My rheumatologist’s physician assistant recommended this to me to use during any flares that may arise.

A little amount goes a long way. With any prescription or any natural alternative remedy, you should always be mindful that these things are absorbed by the body and into the bloodstream.

Many rheumatoid arthritis patients have benefited from this gel, however always consult with your rheumatologist to make sure it doesn’t interact with any of your other prescription medications and overall treatment plan.

This goes for everything listed above too.

*Rheumatologist, physician and patient approved. Not natural at all. A bit bulky to carry in a purse but can fit into a bigger bag. Packaging is heavy duty but is prone to being fragile as it can create dents in the tube because it’s not plastic.
