As moms, we definitely don’t have time to be injured. Life is so busy that there’s just no time to slow down. I know my schedule leaves no time for recovering from anything, whether I’m sick or injured, so when something comes up I look for any option I can to get me back on my feet again.
It wasn’t a smart move.
I rolled my ankle in the process and ended up with a gigantic bruise all over the top of my food. It was so bruised that my doctor was convinced it was broken so we headed to the hospital for an x-ray. Fortunately, it was not broken, just badly bruised. The downside of that (other than having a foot that hurt like crazy every time I moved it the wrong way, was that we had a camping trip planned that weekend.
I was mostly healed by the time we were ready to leave so we didn’t cancel the trip but the light hike we did just about did me in.
That night my foot, ankle and lower half of my leg was aching like crazy. I still had 6 kids to chase after so I couldn’t just relax the rest of the night. I came prepared though with some great pain relieving cream from Biofreeze®.
What is Biofreeze?
Biofreeze has an amazing line of clinically recommended pain relieving products. They come in a spray, a gel, or a roll on. All their products are non-systemic, non-narcotic, and contain no NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs), salicylates or addictive substances so you can be confident that they are safe.
They work by using United States Pharmacopeia (USP) grade menthol to provide fast acting pain relief and I love that they are free of parabens and propylene glycol.
I wasn’t quite sure how Biofreeze would work — my legs were aching pretty badly, especially the side with my injured foot — but I was willing to try anything. I was shocked that I had instant relief when I sprayed it on and it lasted for several hours before I needed to reapply.
Biofreeze saved my camping trip and earned a spot in my first aid kit from now on! Find a store that carries Biofreeze near you by going here.
