Battle Balm #PainRelief #Sponsored


I received this item to review as part of my blog, 'The Migraine Diva'.  All opinions are my own and are in no way influenced by the company.


As many of you may know, I try to incorporate non-medicinal pain relief options into my pain management routine. If I can control, wind down or possible eradicate pain naturally I will take that route first. Part of having migraine is avoiding medication overuse headache (MOH). I am limited to using my pain medication to three days per week or once every 24 hours. This leads me to use them only when absolutely necessary and when other methods have failed.

Finding good pain relief balms can be a challenge. Either the oils used trigger a migraine attack or the formula isn't very effective. There has been a lot of trial and error in the search for the right pain relief balm. When Battle Balm reached out to me to try their products, I was intrigued. 

I read a great review by Nikki Albert of The Brainless Blogger (https://brainlessblogger.net/2018/03/07/review-battle-balm/). Nikki is a well-known migraine blogger and patient advocate. She had nothing but great things to say about Battle Balm. I was eager to give them a try.


I received their Extra Strength Battle Balm and Demon Strength Battle Balm Stick. The formulas are 100% plant based and all-natural. They use 20 hand picked USDA-certified and wild-grown plants in their topical organic pain relievers. There are no artificial colors, fragrances, fillers, synthetic dyes, petroleum, paraben, methylparaben, phthalate, propylene glycol (PG), polyethylene glycol (PEG), sodium laurel sulfate (SLS), or sodium laurel ether sulfate (SLES) and are cruelty free.

What Does Battle Balm Do?

"Battle Balm® rapidly penetrates into the skin using some of the best natural transdermally permeable compounds found in nature. Battle Balm® neutralizes pain on site by blocking pain receptors, and supports tissue repair and recovery with naturally occurring lipids, fatty acids, and vitamins from the plant extracts. With two years of comprehensive development and rigorous testing on combat fighters, our non-greasy, thermally-indexed formulation has been literally battle-tested."

How Did It Work For Me?

Extra Strength Battle Balm
I love these products! Not only did they help me, but my entire family loves them too. The Extra Strength formula really helped to ease the fibromyalgia-related early morning stiffness in my hands and feet. I especially liked to use it on my neck, shoulders and temples. The scent isn't too overpowering and the balm glides on nicely. It isn't greasy at all and because of the high-quality ingredients I don't have to worry about any breakouts on my skin. My son uses it regularly to help ease his muscles after his strength training.

I'd have to say that the Demon Strength is my favorite. It won me over the night I used it for a painful sciatica flare up. The pain radiated from my lower back down into my hips, buttocks and legs with numbness and tingling. Usually nothing really touches the pain and I barely get any sleep because it is hard to get comfortable when the lower half of my body hurts. I applied the balm to all of the affected areas. Immediately there was relief. 

The cooling effect of the balm helped to quiet the nerves. After about 20 minutes, my pain was drastically reduced and I could fall asleep easily. I woke up the next morning pain free. I was amazed. The only downside to the stick is that it is messier to apply. In fact, all of the balm came out of the stick applicator and I had to transfer it to a small container. I don't mind that though because it is that good.

I've also used it to help with occipital headaches, which I have been getting a lot of lately. My husband, who has occipital neuralgia, also uses the Demon Strength for his pain. He gets almost instant relief; something that usually doesn't happen for him.

I highly recommend these products. Use the chart below to find the right formula for your pain needs:
