Backpack essentials: 4 reasons to include Nature’s Aid skin gel

First Aid

Our skin gel has high levels of anti-oxidants and antibacterial properties. It also contains anti-itching and mild anesthetic benefits, making it an ideal basic first aid treatment. After cleaning the area, apply the gel to promote healing and ward off infection for a wide variety of issues. These include allergic skin reactions, cuts and scrapes, insect bites and stings, swelling, inflammation, sunburn, frostbite and more.

Spot Treatment

Pimples happen, especially with the stress of homework, assignments and tests. Rosemary, witch hazel and tea tree are three of our core ingredients, and they work to dry and tighten skin tissue, tighten pores and remove excess oil. When combined with the soothing effects of aloe vera and vitamin E, the gel not only works to clear up spots and acne, but will ease any redness and inflammation that are present as well.

Splash some water on your skin, apply the gel and wipe away. Then apply a little bit more to absorb into the skin, this will leave you feeling fresh and ready to take on the rest of the day.

Backpack Essentials: 3 reasons to include Nature’s Aid muscle balm

It’s common for athletes to carry some form of muscle balm around with them. We’ve got 3 reasons to choose Nature’s Aid true natural healing muscle balm.

It’s All Natural

This muscle balm contains natural and organic ingredients and essential oils specifically selected for their multi-functional benefits. Ingredients such as aloe vera, lavender, cayenne, ginger root, rosemary and peppermint work to relieve muscle and nerve pain, increase circulation, reduce swelling and inflammation, and offer a warming sensation.

The Packaging

With a unique rub-on applicator, applying the muscle balm is easy and mess-free. You won’t need to worry about leftover residue on the hands that could transfer to sensitive areas such as the eyes, nose or mouth, and cause irritation if not properly washed away.

It Really Works

We have received a lot of feedback on our muscle balm. So instead of me telling you how well it works, I’ll just share a few testimonials:

“I loved my experience with Nature’s Aid – I was concerned at first as I’m used to more commercialized muscle aids and I didn’t know how this would fair against the mainstream options. I was pleasantly surprised. The smell was great – a nice light and refreshing experience compared to the stronger more chemically infused options. The product worked and provided the care and aid I needed for my sore muscles.” ~ Darian K.

“I enjoyed using this after training for my half marathon, sprints give me sore quads and this was fast and easy to rub on. Easy to toss in a gym bag as well.” ~ Alexis H.

“I had the worst muscle spasm and used this roll on stick by Nature’s Aid — OHMYGOODNESS, what a heaven-sent product!! It relieved the pain instantaneously! It was so magical. I will definitely buy this again; definitely recommend this product for anyone with aches and pains.” ~ Michelle C
