Lorem was created to make people aware that there are natural alternatives to the use of prescribed drugs and medication.

Many painkillers and other forms of medication are prescribed everyday, and we provide people the option for a natural alternative to help reduce their aches and pain.

Lorem’s first aim was to find something that could replace the prescribed medications that people take every day, and with extensive research, experimenting and testing a number of natural pain relief products, Emu Oil was the product with the most beneficial results for the relief of pain and many skin conditions. Lorem, then wanted to further the use of emu oil, bringing it more into the public eye – creating an alternative choice for pain relief, rather than the use of prescription drugs and the  side effects they can bring to the user after long term use.

Emu oil is a very popular product already used in places like Australia, and is gradually becoming more popular in the UK as people are searching for more natural alternatives to pain relief and treatment for skin conditions.

Emu Oil is an all natural transdermal substance which penetrates the layers of your skin, providing relief for many common and unique ailments – one of the most common, being arthritis.

There are many ways you can help relieve the symptoms and pain of Arthritis naturally, please see some listed below which we think can benefit YOU.

Maintain a healthy weight

Your weight can have a significant impact on how arthritis is affected within your body and the pain you may experience from this. Extra weight will cause more pressure on your joints, especially on the areas which are prone to a flare-up such as hips, knees, and feet.

Maintaining a healthy weight will help reduce any stress on your joints and therefore your mobility will be improved and pain decreased, this will also help prevent any future strain or damage on your joints.

Stay Active

Physical activity is vital for joint health and from this, it can help treat arthritis. Exercise is beneficial for strengthening the muscles around the joint and can offer added support and less strain. When looking to help treat generalised arthritis movement can help daily, but other activities such as taking a brisk walk, aerobic exercises such as swimming, jogging, and daily stretches help to improve a range of motion and flexibility.

Hot and Cold Therapy

Simple hot and cold treatments are an effective and easy way to help relieve the symptoms associated with arthritis. Warm showers or baths help to ease the stiffness in your joints, especially in the morning before going about your daily routine. The added help of such things like a hot water bottle or heated blankets can also help to keep your joints loose.

Cold treatments relieve swelling and inflammation around the joints. An ice pack or similar wrapped in a towel and applied to the required area for a short period of time (20 minutes) gives quick pain relief.

Massage therapy

Regular massaging of arthritic joints can help reduce pain and stiffness of the area and improve your flexibility as well and allowing consistent blood flow to circulate the area and therefore keeping that area healthy. Learn self-massage techniques to use regularly or book regular appointments with a trained therapist.

Getting the correct Fatty Acids in your diet

Everyone needs Omega 3 fatty acids to help create optimum health. These fats also help with arthritis as they help reduce inflammation and regulate the immune system. You can source Omega 3 fatty acids from foods such as nuts, seeds, fish (Salmon, Tuna and Sardines).  Omega 3 is also available to buy as a natural supplement and is found in our Emu Oil capsules.

Essential Oils

For thousands of years, essential oils have been used for their anti-inflammatory properties and have shown huge benefits in helping relieve the pain.

Essential oils and their components are rapidly absorbed through the skin and therefore reach the muscles and joints a lot sooner than some other topical creams. Some of the more beneficial essential oils used for the treatment of arthritis include ginger, turmeric, lavender, eucalyptus, rosemary and chamomile. You can find a lot of these in our balms and body salts.

Meditation and mindfulness

Mindfulness meditation is a meditation in which people try and focus their attention on their feelings and what their body is experiencing. Studies have shown that actively involving meditation into your daily life can help improve your immune system and reduce disease. Those who have practised meditation have shown a reduction in pain, early morning stiffness and reduced swollen and tender joints.

Deep Breathing Technique

Taking slow breaths can help calm and relax the stress receptors that tighten muscles and make the pain worse. When you focus on deep breathing techniques, you to take your brain away from the thoughts of pain.


Treating severe arthritis naturally can be a mind field. Determining which natural remedies work depends on the individual. For many, the application of natural topical creams which contain essential oils that offer anti-inflammatory relief is suitable to help relieve the pain.
