Aloe Heat Lotion and Aloe Vera Gelly are the two Forever Living products that I keep with me at all times. I want them at home and i want them at the office, so I take care to pack them into my backpack for both directions. I keep a nearly empty Aloe Heat Lotion tube in my purse, so that even if I'm at church, or shopping in a store, visiting someone, I can whip it out and apply a dab of that very practical creme when i have an itch or pain of any kind.
My hives have let up now, but they were what first drove me to make sure I carried Aloe Heat Lotion with me at all times. I never knew when they would strike. Scratching the hives would only make them worse. A dab of the lotion smeared over the itchy spot would stop the itch almost instantly, and grant relief.
I still have the occasional itch under my waistband elastic - (elastics generally irritate my sensitive skin) so I quickly apply the Aloe Heat Lotion and can carry on as if nothing is wrong. The same when lower back pain creeps up on me.
You might ask, what is the ingredient in that lotion that does such wonders?
It is just about straight aloe vera lotion with some cayenne added. The cayenne warms the blood circulation to the area where the lotion is applied, and that can take care of most minor pains and itches. Actually, the blood carries it away deeper into the body too, so that one can have relief for several hours.
You can feel totally safe in applying Aloe Heat Lotion, for it is not harmful to you (unless you rub your eyes with the finger you used to apply the lotion moments ago - Yikkes! Then your eye will burn for a while!). Nor is it addictive.
If your pain is severe enough to last even after applying this lotion, then your pain is of another degree and may deserve some pain killer medication. Or at the least, some testing to see what is the root cause.
I had a bout of the flu and a bad cough over this last Christmas (2014), and made one discovery that I should point out. If you use this Aloe Heat Lotion on your temples as I did for my sinus headache, it will ease the pain, however, it also brings the blood vessels closer to the surface and I'm finding that they do NOT disappear so easily. In other words, if having smooth, flawless looking skin on your face is important to you, you will want to restrain from using the lotion on your temples. I soon switched to just rubbing the lotion under my hairline in my neck. That still helped ease the headache too.
Every first-aid kit should have some aloe vera for skin care. Order the lotions, ointments or sprays that you prefer.

Then you could pick them up when the order arrives.
