I have been given this product as part of a product review through the Chronic Illness Bloggers network. Although the product was a gift from The Fay Farm, all opinions in this review remain my own and I was in no way influenced by the company itself or by Chronic Illness Bloggers.
I have to admit that I was skeptical about this product when I signed up to review it. If you read my writings often, I have a weird mix of beliefs and tend to shy away from natural things because, as I was growing up, that was all my family would do to help with my pain.
Turns out, multiple chronic pain issues don’t really respond to copper bracelets aside from turning wrists green… Anyway, it’s safe to say that I was looking for this to totally bomb.
But it surpassed anything I could have thought.
The first thing I used this for was actually an injury. I managed to cut open my fourth toe on my left foot to the point where I needed three stitches to hold it on and heal. My pinky toe on the same foot was also injured and broken… The fourth toe may be broken too, but since there is little that can be done for a toe, I didn’t ask for an x-ray.
I was told, after this accident, to make sure that I kept the area moist and clean. The day after, I began using this healing CBD lotion on the area to help with moisture and the whole clean thing.
It greatly reduced the pain that I was having, both from the injury itself and from stepping incorrectly with stitches.
There was even a point in the next week where I drove home during my lunch time after a meeting specifically to apply this lotion to my foot. Within a week, I was able to remove my stitches. The lotion continues to help the scar tissue and skin in the area improve.
In the meantime, the horrible dry skin that I have on my heels has greatly reduced. I am no longer catching skin on blankets, but have smooth feet! And that is still the case without having used the lotion for two days.
It has helped immensely with the pain from my fibromyalgia as well, whether this is in my hands or – the worse area right now – my neck.
The other night, I had a bout of painsomnia that was the most intense I’ve faced in a while. I ended up having to take a large amount of medication in addition to getting a back rub and applying this lotion to my neck and tailbone area.
It finally helped to break the painsomnia cycle.
If this lotion can help solve my icky, scratchy feet in addition to helping me heal from an injury and deal with my fibro pain in the midst of my biggest fibro flare in years?
Because I loved this product so much, I will be reviewing their Serenity CBD lotion coming soon, so stay tuned!
