Whether you experience foot pain (or just tired feet) from running or being on your feet, it’s nice to have a natural way to get some relief. Of course, my usual steps would have probably been to just take some ibuprofen and then prop my feet up. But I do like the idea of using something that isn’t introducing more chemicals into my body, regardless of how safe they may be.
(Disclosure: I was sent one bottle of “The Runner’s Choice” for free for the purpose of review on this site.)
When I was sent a bottle of The Runner’s Choice I was kind of unsure how to review it. I didn’t actively have any foot pain and I don’t feel that my feet get exceptionally tired. I am usually barefoot while I work all day and I don’t wear really constricting shoes. I do run, but that doesn’t usually make my feet hurt either. But then one day after a run, the top of my foot started to ache just a little. So I figured, “Now must be the time to try it.” So I rubbed a few drops into my foot and then got swept up in my day… not remembering until several hours later that, “Hey… my foot REALLY hurt earlier today, to the point of me being constantly aware of it but it doesn’t hurt now.” Could it have just needed some time? Sure. But it could have been due to this concoction.
You don’t have to rub it in intensely to get the benefits. Just coat your feet and ankle in the oil, wash your hands and go about your day. The smell isn’t intensely overpowering like some topical remedies and it also doesn’t have an intense cooling/heating feel, just gently relieving tension in the feet muscles. I also like that it isn’t really oily, so it doesn’t stain or transfer onto anything else.
The Runner’s Choice is formulated with 100% natural botanical oils: almond, eucalyptus, eucalytol, wintergreen, peppermint and spearmint. The concept is that these oils are well-received through the epidermis and can put them to use quickly and effectively. So… it’s basically right in line with the whole essential oil madness that is all over right now.
What’s not in line with that essential oil madness? It’s way more affordable than many of these special blends floating around. You can buy a 2oz bottle of The Runner’s Choice for $19.97.
Or… you can get it for FREE.
Free is always nice, right?
Well, basically you have to pay a $7.95 shipping fee. But still, that’s pretty cheap. It’s only one free offer per household, so you can’t go trying to cheat the system by having your spouse order another bottle.
Do you have any essential oil blends you swear by? Do you get foot pain? Do you just want to say hi? I’m going to be picking 3 winners to receive a bottle from the comments here, so drop some words in the comment box!
