Smell (Irrelevant to effects)
The smell of the Fast Acting Therapeutic Spray reminded us of a potent, cleansing blend of medicinal essential oils. The completely natural scent is comprised of essential oils of clove, rosemary, camphor, wintergreen, oregano, cassia, frankincense, and balsam fir. The smell is earthy, fresh, and pungent—it even has hints of turmeric!
Taste (Irrelevant to effects)
These products should not be orally ingested!
The consistency of this product is liquid. The spray utilizes an aloe vera juice liquid base—from there, Ambary Gardens adds turmeric, witch hazel, hemp derived CBD extract and various essential oils. The spray has a cool feeling when it hits your skin and it’s quickly absorbed. It’s easy to apply via the spray top and rub into your skin. Instead of simply remaining on the skin level, you can tell it instantly penetrates into your skin.
Effects (Onset, Duration, Intensity)
The effects are fantastic—the spray immediately reinvigorates your skin before penetrating deeper into your joints and muscles. We applied to sore spots and found the effects of the Fast Acting Therapeutic Spray can begin to be felt instantly (hence the name). The duration depended on where the rub was applied and what the ailment was, but overall, it lasted a couple of hours. It is worth noting that in our experience, this spray acts faster than the Muscle Recovery salve, but the effects are not as powerful.
Best used for
In our experience, the Fast Acting Therapeutic Spray works best on sore muscles and tender, damaged skin that needs immediate relief. It’s a great alternative application type to the Muscle Recovery Rub while delivering much of the same value. The CBD in the Therapeutic Spray helps reduce inflammation and moisturizes skin. Alternatively, if you’re looking to relieve joint pain and arthritis symptoms, we recommend the Deep Rub from Ambary Gardens.
