This weekend, we did the first yard work of the season and it was brutal. All that bending and raking had me on my feet most of the day. When we stopped for the day, I could hardly walk because my back was hurting so badly. I wanted something that would help my back stop hurting but I did not want to take any kind of over the counter pain killers.
My husband offered to massage my back and reminded me that shea butter cream works wonders on sore muscles. I would have taken anything at that point so I got the shea butter and he massaged my back, shoulders, arms and neck. I almost went to sleep and I’ll tell you what, by the time he stopped, my back felt 100% better and today I had no pain. Of course, then I reciprocated because he was hurting just as much as me.
