Pain Gel - Anti-inflammatory and Healing

Kate from Country Herbals Cottage Shop

Ngongotaha Cottage Shop Open Tues 17th Sept from 1pm to 2.30 (or text a time 021 144 1113)
A happy customer writes about Pain Gel. He has given me permission to share this.
Hi Kate, I have been using your CC Pain Gel for a couple of weeks now and have found it to be a God-send! I have multiple joint issues, due for a hip replacement, pain and swelling in the knee of the same leg as well as a ruptured Achillies tendon and stenosis of the spine. There was a slight reduction in pain from the first application and the more that I used the gel, the less pain/swelling there was. It took four to five days for the full effect of pain/swelling reduction to happen, applying the gel three to four times a day and now am down to two applications a day with the same effect. I am on my second 120mil bottle of the gel and am finding that I have more mobility and less pain and am sleeping much better than I have for many months. I can't recommend it highly enough!
I have also tried a couple of your soaps I used on my hands with interesting results. Callouses developed over the past 45 years or so have disappeared and my hands have much more sensitivity.

Thought I might as well catchup on things around home, so my Sheds got a spruce up!

How considerate are your neighbours?

Jo Haywood Reporter from Homed

Hey neighbours, are you seeing and hearing a lot more of your neighbours during the lockdown? Has it helped you get to know them better - from an acceptable social distance - or is the noise of everyone being home together all the time getting to you?

Now more than ever it's up to all of us to try not to annoy our neighbours, and to be more tolerant ourselves, so here are some easy ways to do just that.

And if you're wondering what makes a good neighbour and what makes a bad one, check out the 12 most annoying neighbour types. How many have you lived next to?

Our sweet pea seeds send out, April issue and Get Growing

Mei Leng Wong Reporter from NZ Gardener & Get Growing

Dear neighbours and NZ Gardener family,

Our April issue should be with our subscribers now and available in supermarkets and service stations (having been distributed prior to the lockdown restrictions). Whether or not it's on the stands yet is a bit patchy ... but then the incredibly brave and hard-working supermarket staff have quite a bit on their plate right now so I understand if there is a delay! Please, please, please everyone ... don't go out to buy it! Normally of course we love you buying NZ Gardener but right now it's far more important that you stay home and stay safe. (You can buy a copy with your online shopping though! That's safe and I think we are all in the market for something uplifting to read right now).

In this issue we offered to send out sweet pea seeds to any reader who sent us a SSAE. Just to reassure you, we will still send out sweet pea seeds to any reader who is keen to participate. We are just not quite sure when! Ignore the dates in the magazine of when you needed to send the envelope in by - that has been indefinitely extended. But we cannot wait to send you the seed and for those flowers to bloom as by then we will be well through this or even have it behind us. And keep letting us know what you are sowing and growing, send in pictures of your harvest, your flowers or what you are sharing.

We always love hearing from NZ Gardener readers but now when we are all staying apart that connection means more than you can imagine. Stay home, stay safe and stay in touch everyone. For the most updated gardening advice, subscribe to our digital e-zine Get Growing, which will be delivered to your inbox completely free.
