Hello June and hello summer gardening chores! From pulling weeds, to mowing, to trimming trees, my husband and I are working outside to spruce up our landscape most every weekend now.  I love living this semi-rural lifestyle, but trust me when I say, there is a lot of hard work and upkeep involved and more often than not, our hard work has us both saying we have a backache by the end of the day. Thankfully, we’d discovered the benefits of using Salonpas products years ago, so when I was asked if I would help spread the word about Salonpas Day where they give away free patches I happily agreed! Read on to see how you can ease back pain with a free Salonpas patch this month!

About Salonpas Day: 

My supply of Salonpas patches

To honor Salonpas Day (May 18th)  which celebrates freedom from pain, Hisamitsu America has rolled out free pain patches in the U.S.  So far, 87,000 patches are on their way to pain sufferers nationwide! 

“Traditionally, Hisamitsu employees hand out free samples around the world each Salonpas Day, fulfilling our mission by sharing the benefits of safe, targeted pain relief with our communities,” said John Incledon, President, Hisamitsu America, the marketers of Salonpas®, the world’s number one pain patch brand. 

“Although COVID-19 is once again disrupting our plans to deliver samples in-person, we are excited to get Salonpas Pain Relief Patches, the first FDA-approved OTC topical pain reliever, into the hands of pain sufferers nationwide.”

About Hisamitsu America:

As Seen on TV:

Salonpas patch Free sample

A new television ad, which you can watch here, features the website TrySalonpas.com for consumers to request a sample of the Salonpas® Pain Relief Patch. According to Salonpas, this patch contains two powerful pain fighting ingredients, menthol, and methyl salicylate (an NSAID – a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug) that provide powerful relief for muscle or joint pain that lasts up to 12 hours. 

This TV ad has done so well, there are only 13,000 remaining free samples, so click on over to grab your freebie now.  You'll receive a free large pain relief patch. This is one of our favorite patches because it covers the lower back area well and stays put for hours of relief. And for the guys with back hair there, it doesn't hurt to remove it!

My Thoughts:

The full line of Salonpas products

Using Salonpas topical pain relief patches and their whole line of products have been a total game changer for my husband and me. We both have strong backs and do our best to take care of our backs by  stretching before exertion, using legs to lift, mindful posture, ample hydration etc. and still, we can find ourselves with one dilly of a backache.  That’s why we keep a supply of Salonpas patches, creams, and rubs on hand. Salonpas to the rescue from all our weekend gardening aches and pains!
