Have you heard of Salonpas? I have to confess, the first time I saw a commercial for Salonpas my mommy listening antenna went up because I thought it was an advertisement for puppy products. Don’t ask me why, it is just the first thing that flashed through my mind. Then I actually watched the commercial … yeah, it has nothing to do with dogs, who knew! So, what is it?

Salonpas is an alternative for pain suffers that provides fast and long lasting relief directly to the site of your pain without going through the digestive system; unlike oral over the counter pain remedies. The active ingredients in Salonpas are absorbed through the skin and go directly where they are needed.

Now, I don’t know about you but I tend to suffer from aches and pains more during the winter months than the summer months. I am not sure if it is because the weather, the fact that I am more sedentary, or maybe both but I like to have “go to” products on hand that will not only aid me in making it through the day but getting a good night’s sleep as well.
