Review & GiveAway: Maui Excellent Volcano Oil

If you experience any kind of recurring pain, joint pain or chronic pain, you've probably tried just about everything there is in an attempt to ease the pain. I know I have.  So when Maui Excellent offered to let me try their Volcano Oil line and provide a review of it, I jumped at the chance.

Maui Excellent was kind enough to send me three of their Volcano Oil products, which included the Volcano Oil, Volcano Oil Gel and Volcano Oil bath salts.  I'm all about my nightly bath, so the bath salts were the very first thing I tried and I was a bit disappointed that they weren't stronger.  Once I added the salts to the water it was like adding any other bath salts. The effects of the aromatherapy just wasn't there, and beyond that there seemed little purpose to buy a specialized bath salt.

The Volcano Oil and the Volcano Oil Gel, on the other hand are a different story! I love both of these products and will be using the gel until I am scraping the bottom of the jar clean with a Q-tip if I have to.  The Volcano Oil gel feel SO GOOD on any part of my body that is hurting.  I get a lot of neck pain and this stuff was perfect for it.  The eucalyptus and mint essential oils create a soothing aromatherapy, while the aloe vera and menthol provide a cooling relief to the pain.  I've used it on neck pain, leg pain and even on my temples for a headache.  I've also given it a try for clearing out my nasal passages and easing congestion and it works for that as well.

The Volcano Oil comes in a convenient roll-on applicator, so it is a great version to carry in your purse (or even pocket) and have on hand when you are out and about.  If you remember when Bath & Body works had their aromatherapy line in a roll-on then you have exactly the right idea of what this is, and the Volcano Oil really does seem to me like a much stronger version of the Eucalyptus Spearmint aromatherapy products from Bath & Body works.  Overall, my favorite is definitely the Volcano Oil gel, but the oil is also an excellent choice.

That said, Maui Excellent, has been EXCELLENT :) enough to offer up both products to one of my lucky readers.  For your chance to win, you'll need to do two things:
