Liberty Lotion; Limitless

I have been given this Limitless Lotion as part of a product review through the Chronic Illness Bloggers network. Although the product was a gift, all opinions in this review remain my own and I was in no way influenced by the company.

I love to try new products especially ones that are so easy to use.

Limitless Lotion is a water-based product and has no gels or petroleum ingredients.
The ingredients include: Distilled Water, Emulsifying Wax, Stearic Acid, Willow Bark Extract, Glycerin, Boswellia, Argan Oil, Flax Seed Oil, Colloidal Silver, Citric Acid, Benzyl Alcohol, Bergamot Oil, Lavender Oil, Arnica Montana (5x).

Just like the name the uses are limitless. Customers have used it on Arthritis, Fibromyalgia, Muscle Pain, Headaches, Scrapes, Stings, Bites, Bruises, Rashes, Cramps, Sciatica, Chronic Injury-Related Pain, Rosacea, Eczema, Psoriasis, Joint Pain and more!

MADE IN THE USA
“From the very start, it has been a guiding principle for us at Liberty Lotion to procure our ingredients from the very best sources available. Part of this ideal is our insistence on buying American, whether it’s bottles, active ingredients, labels or packing material. It is our firm belief that it is our roots in industry, and especially small business, that makes our country great, and we are committed to contributing to the American economy by relying on our excellent domestic manufacturers and suppliers to fill the needs of our growing business. This is why we are proud to say, for all of our products, that they are made right here in the USA.”

Limitless Lotion, from Liberty Lotion, is NOT a CBD-based lotion. Liberty Lotion makes a variety of CBD-based products including tinctures (internal) and topicals. But, Limitless Lotion is different. Limitless lotion is a pain-relief lotion that while it doesn’t contain CBD oil is a Cannabimimetic; meaning it contains compounds that mimic the effect of CBD. Specifically, Limitless Lotion contains Boswellia Serrata extract. Boswellia respectively contains a compound called Incensole Acetate which mimics the effects of CBD.”

I have tried several CBD-based lotions. Libery Lotion did not work as quickly as others but the more often I used it the more I noticed it help to relieve my overall aches. I have begun trying to use it at the onset of a headache. I have noticed that it has helped alleviate the temple and neck pain.

The lotion quickly absorbs into my skin without leaving any greasy feeling and I really like the mild smell. I did find that I needed to use more than their instructions of using one pump per 2×2 square of skin.

They offer a great loyalty reward program. When you sign up for Liberty Rewards, every $1 you spend at libertylotion.com accrues 3x Liberty Rewards. You can also earn rewards for: signing up for a new account, registering your date of birth, referring friends, and liking and sharing our pages on social media.

I plan on continuing to use Limitless Liberty Lotion without any of my other lotions to continue to test the product. In addition, I have had my daughter begin to use it for bruises and sore muscles.

They offer a FREE TRIAL SIZE

Who Cares?

whocaresWe have all done it. We have lied or told half truths when asked the question, “How are you?”.

How many people in our lives do we share our true level of pain we are feeling every day, physically and emotionally?

As I walk down the school hallways every day to refill my water bottle I pass a Teacher who always says “Hi!” and asks “How’s it going?

I smile (a forced smile), replying “Hi!, Good.”

I caught myself in my head the other day saying “Liar, Liar Pants on Fire”. I am anything but good.

When asked how are you by a co-worker or a store clerk it’s more of a common courtesy question. Am I being rude by not responding when asked how I am doing? Or is it okay, since they are not asking for real because “How are you?”, is simply a greeting not an invitation to unload your daily list of complaints.

Can you imagine if I replied, “My neck and back are causing me a new intense pain. It hurts to turn my head. It is causing headaches. I can’t get the right balance between not able to go to the bathroom or having to go to the bathroom ASAP. My right hand has started hurting when using scissors, etc. My knee feels like it is going out every time I try to stand. I had to be helped into the bathtub this weekend.”

If we began answering the truth how long would it take for that person to stop asking?

I get it. I have known people who tell everyone absolutely every negative detail in their lives. It gets old.

What about our family or the people that live with us?

Eventually for many of us those that we live with stop asking. Maybe they just assume they know the answer already. It doesn’t mean they have stopped caring.

My daughter is 16, she is busy surviving high school. I don’t expect it of her.

I mentioned to my husband awhile ago that he doesn’t ask me how I am feeling any more. He said, “I don’t have to, I can tell by how you get out of the chair and how you are walking.”

Ok, so he sees it but that really isn’t what is needed.

The past few weeks I have acquired new health problems and a very high level of pain. It has kept me from doing things that I would normally push through and has brought me to tears daily.

Then just this weekend we were hosting a cross country bon-fire and I was asked, “What do you need help with?” I muttered under my breath, “Just end it.”

It has crossed over the line of just physical pain and is now affecting my emotional well-being.
I am to the point where I have to let the truth out because if I keep answering “fine,” I will find myself on the road to depression.

Are we more likely to open up about physical pain than when we are feeling depressed?

I think it is easier or more acceptable for someone to comment “my knee has been killing me” than “emotionally/mentally I am …”

What if someone asked, “How are you today?”, and we replied, “I want to jump.”

Can you imagine how others would react? Instead, we answer fine, good or in my case on crummy days, “peachy”.

What if there is no one you can tell the whole truth? No one to listen to you cry? Crying alone is one thing but crying in a room with others without any reaction is being alone.

Often we stop sharing the truth when we answer because it is easier for us. It’s much harder to share our long list of ailments. We want to be polite. We don’t want to ruin the other person’s day. We don’t want to be “a downer” or “negative.”

Those living with chronic pain such as fibromyalgia often become isolated. It is so easy to focus on our pain. It’s easy to feeling alone when you can’t talk about how you are really doing.

Thank goodness for support groups where we can share the truth of how we’re really feeling.

Everyone needs someone in their lives where they can share the truth to the question…

“How are you.”
