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

CRM. A new fibromyalgia symptom?

medicineCRM. A new fibromyalgia symptom?

Well, not really. But maybe.
I know I live with CRM.

Wonder what CRM is?

Let me tell you:

Can’t Remember Meds.

Even though it’s only a matter of hours after missing my medicine that my body begins to let me know, I often forget my meds. With that lapse in memory, I start experiencing body aches, fatigue (more than usual), and headache, sometimes leading to a fever-like feeling and cold sweats. It still surprises me and I think I’m coming down with the flu, but then I’m hit with the ah-ha moment: “I forgot to take my medication.” Then it takes at least 2 dosages before I feel my “normal.”

CRM. It is ridiculous. It is completely unavoidable. Just take the medication. Right?

It isn’t always that easy. Life happens. Any form of interruption in my schedule can lead to me either taking medication late or not at all. The first thing I do every day when I wake is to take my morning dosage; my phone alarm goes off at 7:00 p.m. everyday to remind me to take my evening dosage.

If anything messes with my routine such as oversleeping, vacations, etc., I am likely to forget. In the evening if I’m busy writing, the phone rings, laundry, etc., instead of hitting the snooze alarm, I will hit the dismiss button on my phone and remember an hour later.

I’ve tried many different methods to remember to take my meds and am currently using PillSuite, a seven-compartment sorter.

Here’s how it works:

Step 1: Sort your pills (AM or PM) into the seven compartments of the sorter.

Step 2: Place one of the plastic packets over the funnel on the sorter. Tip the sorter sideways and the pills will flow easily into the plastic packets. Label the packet.

Step 3: Finally, use the sealer to seal the pill packet closed and you are done!

I don’t enjoy sorting my meds. It takes me approx. 20-30 minutes to sort 2 weeks worth of meds/vitamins. I’ve gotten lazy and do not label the pill packets which means I really don’t have any way of knowing if I have taken them or not.

There is a very easy fix to this dilemma. I can label the pill packet with the date or start using the plastic daily medicine boxes that are clearly marked by the day and am/pm.

We are creatures of habit. It is important to take medications at the same time everyday.

Tie taking your medication with a daily activity such as breakfast, brushing your teeth or going to bed.

Keep them where you will see them (out of sight – out of mind).

When you take them, visualize yourself taking the medication.

Use a calendar and place a mark on the day after you have taken your medicine.

Place post-it notes or reminders where you are certain to see them such as by your toothbrush, nightstand, car keys, etc.

Ask a family member or a friend to give you a reminder call.

Find a sorting system that works for you.

Avoid the cheap pill boxes. They usually have flimsy lids and clasps that break or wear out after a few months.

Try different ways of reminding yourself to take the medicine and keeping track that you have taken them.

Keep a backup dose of meds on hand in case you forget to take them after you’ve left the house or if you’re going to be out past medicine time.

I’ve now been using the PillSuite system for over a month, and I am so happy that I was given the opportunity to try this product. I have officially tossed the plastic containers and plan on continuing to use PillSuite.

I would love to hear how you remember to take your medicine.
