I first tried Saje’s pain release analgesic remedy roll-on when I was working long hours in the city and spending the majority of my days sitting anxiously hunched over a desk typing as quickly as I could.
I was the kind of young employee that always felt like she had something to prove. I was in the office before everyone else, eating lunch at my desk, doing the office dishes, and bringing unnecessary work home despite the fact my body was in pain and my mental health was suffering.
I can remember feeling desperate to find something to take the edge off, not so that I could feel better, but so that I could work even harder.
Going into Saje and seeing this slim roll-on, I thought it would be great because it’s lightweight and discreet. If it worked, I could bring it everywhere with me and apply it without anyone noticing.
Does the pain release roll-on work?
For me personally, it works 90% of the time. I use it on my shoulders, the back of my neck, and my lower back at least twice a week. It provides quick relief from minor pain, aches, and stiffness.
The other 10%? Well, that’s life for you.
It’s all-natural and eco-friendly.
Remember, what we put onto our skin, we put into our ecosystem. Toxins in personal care products can harm our health and pollute air quality and waterways.
This is why I love this roll-on: it’s a simple blend of essential oils and grapeseed oil—nothing more, nothing less. With this product, I don’t have to worry about synthetic fragrances or parabens.
It’s small and lightweight.
I don’t like carrying purses around for many reasons, one of them being the sheer discomfort of feeling the straps pulling down on my shoulders. The Saje pain-release roll-on is a good option for on-the-go pain relief because it’s slim in design. This past weekend, I went to a dinner event and carried my roll-on in my pocket without anyone noticing.
It lasts a long time.
Sometimes small packages mean more purchases, but not with this product. You really don’t need much to feel the effects. One bottle can last several months. I typically purchase two a year.
The aroma can help reduce mental stress and induce a sense of clarity.
I love the earthy aroma of this essential oil blend. The rosemary and peppermint revive me, the lavender and chamomile calm me, and the eucalyptus helps me focus. Pain-relieving benefits aside, I’d buy this blend for the aromatherapy effects alone.
The peppermint oil has a skin-cooling effect.
To be fair, some people would put this in the pro section. The skin-cooling effect can be pleasant when you’re feeling flush or overheating in a crowded environment, but for me personally, it can be a bit intense and distracting. Obviously this hasn’t stopped me from using it, but it’s something to note.
The aroma is pungent.
When someone applies the pain-release roll-on, it’s very apparent. This can be an issue for a few reasons: scent-free policies, sensitivities to smell, and unwanted question prompts like, “What did you just apply and why?”
Things to keep in mind
Pain, stiffness, and soreness are tricky things to treat and everyone experiences them differently. For some people, this roll-on will provide almost instant relief from minor pain and aches and a dose of relaxing and rejuvenating aromatherapy. For others, it’s going to do nothing at all, or worse, it’s going to irritate their senses with its pungency and skin-cooling effect. I recommend going into a Saje store and trying their tester to see if it helps before forking out the $23.95.
