5/7 – 5/21Pain Relief for Back Pain, Arthritis,Sore Muscles #Giveaway

Camellia ® Warm Therapy Natural Pain Relieving GelI had a really bad back ache this weekend so I was thrilled to have the pleasure of trying Camellia ® Warm Therapy Natural Pain Relieving Gel for a product review. The first thing that stuck out to me about this gel is that it is animal free and it’s made from plants, which gets a huge thumb up from me. Plus, it’s alcohol free so I don’t have to worry about the alcohol drying my skin out. Yay! I prefer using topical products that are chemical free because it’s reported that 60% of what we put on our body is absorbed into our body.

Camellia ® gel is non-greasy and fast-absorbing so there was no cause for concern that the gel would make my clothes greasy while we were on the go Saturday. The Mr. applied this to my back (I love his gentle hands) several times Saturday and by the time I went to bed my back pain had decreased from an 8 (10 being ER pain level), to a 6. This is a huge decrease in relief for me as my pain usually averages a 7 day and night.

In physical therapy they used to use the cold/heat method of relieving my back pain and it worked fairly well at giving me some relief. The cold/heat method Camellia® delivers is what made me finally decide I wanted to give this product a try. Camphor, menthol and aloe vera helps chill the inflamed areas on my back and actually did calm the pain down quite a bit this weekend. After the chill, the capsaicin (the “heat” compound in chili peppers) provided heat to my back to get down deep where the pain is.

I’m not going to discuss in length the smell of this gel. I do want to point out that it was a little strong when I first smelled it. Don’t do what I did and stick your nose in it :). It’s not a medicine camphor odor or clinical smell like some warming gels that I’ve used have. I’ve never smelled Camellia before, which is derived from orange peel extract, so I can’t compare it to anything that has this ingredient in it. It claims to be a fruity smell but it was a little stronger than that to me. It could have smelled like, well, like… um, ANYTHING and I wouldn’t have cared on Saturday. It lowered my pain which was creeping up to ER pain level and that in itself is amazing.

We have decided that this is a product we will keep on hand from now on. This is definitely a 5/5 star product based on my use and findings.

If you would like to win your own 8oz. pain relieving gel then please tell me in a comment what type of pain you have or why you would like to win this product.

The person who seems to need this the most will receive the giveaway item. I suffer from chronic pain and I know first hand what it’s like. Thank you so much.

    I am suffering with chronic pain and I am looking for best medicine to cure this pain and get me out from this pain. I did my regular body check also not found anything serious in my report. With for taking medicines afraid of being caused by side effects so finding some experts to give me advice on what I can do to come out and get lifetime relief.

  6. kristen t says:

    I would get this for my dad. He has really bad hip pain in both hips. He can barely walk and needs a scooter to get around, even to go down the hall.. on top of it, he needs oxygen 24/7 so he can’t have hip replacement surgery because his lungs are not strong enough. He has had numerous cortizone shots and they have not worked. He is doing another set of shots now, but they will not take the pain away completely. Anything that can help him would make me so happy.

  7. christine jessamine says:

    i would love to win this for my husband he has alot of knee problems and this product looks like it could help alot, he has already been in a few surgeries and anything that is safe and non toxic would be great to try

  8. Heather! says:

    I broke my back nineteen years ago and had rods inserted to support my spinal column. Not only do the rods create chronic *discomfort* (at best), but having used a wheelchair for two decades has forced my body to compensate in some ways that create pain in other areas. My shoulders, neck, elbows and lower back are nearly constantly in some amount of pain. I also have pain that I can’t feel in my legs and feet, but my body reacts to those with spasms that put additional stress on the muscles in my back. I have a pretty high threshold for pain, so it doesn’t always interfere with the rest of my life (I’m pretty good at ignoring it), but at times that I am stressed, tired or suffering some other irritation the pain can become unbearable! Recent weeks have been very stressful and frustrating, and my body is really reacting to it. I am so sick of feeling bad!

    There are medications that I could take for some of the pain and spasms, but they invariably make me dopey, or put me to sleep outright. Not only do I not have time for that, I don’t want to spend my life doped up! Life is for making memories, not being too fuzzy to remember them. I prefer to use natural, topical pain relievers whenever possible, but it’s difficult to find products that WORK and LAST.

    Thanks so much for this chance…I would love to try Camellia!

    I would give this to my Dad. He has Rheumetoid Arthritis in his knees. They had told him he would be in a wheelchair within a few years. He is still walking years after they diagnosis, but it is very painful for him. The medicines have quit helping and they keep changing them, but nothing is helping with the pain anymore. He walks with a cane on days that the pain it is almost unbearable. He is determined to stay out of a wheelchair and I would love to be able to give him this to help ease his pain.

  11. StephanieH says:

    I have chronic sever muscle spasms in my back and legs while a resent surgery inproved my quality of life I still get frequent pain in my muscles I hope it would help me work towards my goal of getting back in the work force with less pain.

  12. Asia moore says:

I know he would really appreciate any help. He is really the greatest person and would help anyone he had the chance too. Thanks :)

  13. Pauline Milner says:

    I have severe arthritis in my back. I just had an MRI and there are 8 discs that are enflamed with arthritis. The pain I feel is 24 hours a day, even though I take a high dose of morphine every day. Sleeping is the worst. I only sleep an hour at a time before waking up and having pain. I am scheduled to see the surgeon later this month. My primary care physician says that, in all likelihood, he will recommend major back surgery, but will not offer any guarantees as to the amount of relief that I will get. I am currently trying different topical medications, like the one you are offering, to see if I can find something that will alleviate some of the pain. Thanks for offering this giveaway opportunity. ~Pauline

  14. I have chronic migraine headaches and slight scoliosis in my back. I also have a herniated disc that will be removed in a few weeks. My back is always in pain and this stuff would really help.

  15. I have Rheumatoid Arthiritis and am in pain daily. It has been years since I have had a pain free day. When I was younger I became addicted to narcotic pain pills after a surgery to remove my tailbone, after going to rehabb for that I no longer can take any type of narcotic pain medicine for fear of going back to that horrible place. I mostly rely on over the counter products and have tried capsaicin, which does seem to do some good. Please make sure this goes to the person who absolutely needs it. I have unfortunately learned to live with my pain, while not fun it is necessary

  16. B C EDWARDS says:

    I recently had surgery in nov for a rotary cuff tear. I had to have my arm in a sling for 6 weeks, took a ton of pain killers and after 4 months I was finally allowed to go back to work fulltime. I am now limited to only being able to lift 30 pounds max. So each day I go to my job, try not to lift anything too heavy as I do not want to tear it all over again. I was told that the pain should go away by a year LOL, which I look forward to!!

    p.s. I am in Canada so not to sure if I’m eligible to win

  17. Grandma Bonnie says:

    The Camellia Pain Relieving Gel sounds like a great product. I do have backpain daily but I use a heated rice sock to relax the muscles in my lower back that usually works. I am glad this lowered you pain to a 6. Life is hard to enjoy when you are in so much pain.

  18. Terry says:

    I sit at this computer so much that it makes my shoulder hurt. I have exercises to do for it but I am usually to lazy. I need to go check this out. Thanks!

  19. Debbie Cahoon says:

    I have osteoarthritis in my back and am on presciption pain relievers but still am in excrutiating pain and have never been able to find anything to even touch it. I’m hoping that this will do the trick or even if it eases it a bit would be great.
