What is the difference between the Menthol cream and the Cayenne cream?
They are essentially used for the same ailments -sore and stiff muscles and joints. In our research we found that some people don’t like menthol, especially if used at night. The Cayenne has the added benefits of Frankincense ,Myrrh and Ginger for anti-inflammatory. The effects of Menthol will be immediate while the Cayenne will take about 30 minutes to start working. The choice of cream is determined by personal preference. Menthol has a cooling effect on muscles while Cayenne has a warming effect. (this can get quite hot if activated by water) Some athletes use the Cayenne cream prior to exercise and the Menthol cream after exercise. For arthritis sufferers, the Cayenne cream is a better option.
