I bought a big roll on at Costco for my husband who has some muscle aches in his lower back. I recommend reading the instructions carefully. I guess I applied a little too liberally on his back and he said that it felt like it was on fire! His back got red and hot to the touch and when I tried to wipe it off with a wet cloth it got worse.
After attempting it again another day and following the instructions we found that it actually works better than Voltaren. It's now what we use for topical muscle pain relief.
Since I received this product from for free from another site, I've been testing it for various pains. I've tested it on sore calves, some joint pain in my right hand, and on my husbands lower back. I'm impressed! It worked for all of these pains. Also, the product is just as it claims - odorless and not sticky at all. Also, the roll-on delivery is fantastic - no need to rub it in with your hands. It started working quickly, and the pain was completely gone. The effect doesn't last forever, but long enough. I definitely recommend this product as an alternative to pain killers and other medicated lotions/gels.
This works amazing. Price is totally worth it. Yes it gets hot so don't put a huge amount on. Helps me sleep. Eases pain quite a bit. Easy to apply.
It burned. I used the product before sleeping at 11 pm. I woke up at 4 am with very bad pain. I did everything but it is 7 am and still, my legs are burning. I do not recommend this product to anybody; for 3 hours i could not sleep. I wonder, when I am gonna be ok.
Really digging this formula. So many excellent herbs and oils in their product. A bit of research shows how useful these ingredients are in natural remedies. I really enjoy the clean, herbal scent as well. Feels tingly and gives relief. I find it really helps with muscle pain. Do not use if it expires though- made that mistake once by accident and wow did it burn.
I like this rub, it works in minutes. Only problem, if you have sensitive skin it is not wise to use it. Thank heavens my skin is not sensitive. I get a lot of lower back pain and this works very well for me, most sprains or arthritic pain is controlled by this rub. It goes on well and is absorbed almost immediately. I would definitely recommend this rub to any one suffering from joint pain.
BEST PRODUCT ON THE MARKET!!!! This is my Go To Product for any and every ache and pain. I have suffered with migraines for 55 years that put me in the Hospital. Over my lifetime I have tried every product on the shelves and nothing came close to relieving the tension in my neck. Then I saw the commercials on TV for Lakota roll on and thought "What have I got to lose?" For years now I don't leave home without it. I have one in my work bag, one in my travel bag, one in my camper, one in the bathroom and one in my bedroom. When one of my Co-Workers has an ache or pain I let them try mine and now I have my entire dept and their families hooked on Lakota. Thank Goodness for this product. It has saved me from many trips to the Hospital.
I read the two reviews regarding this product getting warm/hot. Yes it does become warm. DAH-did you people read the instructions???? Of course if you apply any product for this purpose then go to bed and pile a bunch of covers on top of you what do you think is going to happen? Heat reaction????
I had the same experience as the other reviewer. I put it on my upper back and shoulders and it felt great - around 9:00pm. I woke up at 2:00am - it was burning so bad I actually went to the bathroom to see if there were blisters. I was red and swollen. I had to keep putting a damp cool cloth on it so that I could get back to sleep! I won't try it again! However, my husband loves it!
I really wanted to like this product because I love the ingredients.Capsicum and herbals I thought this is perfect for pain I get now and then in my neck from a past car accident.I have tried it two times now and the thing about this product is within five minutes the pain was gone!I really thought I found a miracle cure.
However its very strange the following day on both occasions the area where I applied this topical rub would start to burn uncomfortably and get very red.Quite the delayed action!Not sure why this happens but its a very uncomfortable burning feeling.I researched online and a few people had the very same results.So it may be that I'm allergic to something in this product.It may work better for someone else.
