DMSO (DIMETHYL SULFOXIDE) is an organic compound rich in sulfur, one of the most abundant elements in your body and essential for life. DMSO has analgesic properties and rapidly passes through the skin into the deep tissues. Studies demonstrate it decreases pain by blocking peripheral nerve-C fibers and acts as an antioxidant neutralizing the free radicals of inflammation.
Peppermint Essential Oil (MENTHA x PIPERITA) is helpful in relieving joint and muscle pain, as well as provides a natural source of menthol which offers a cooling sensation along with a mild mint aroma.
