I had tried every kind of arthritis rub on the market. Some just burned my skin but gave no real relief. I read about Castiva in Dr. Gott's column in the local newspaper and had to give it a try. With regular use, I can straighten one finger that has been crooked from arthritis for years. I prefer the cooling lotion because I can put it on my hands at night and wear sleep gloves for maximum benefit. Everyone with arthritis should give it a try!

It is moderately effective, but is REALLY GREASY, which stands to reason with a castor oil base, so it's not good for painful hands and leaves residue on clothes and sheets. Also, the package claims it is odor free, but it is not. It is not a bad smell, but strong enough I would not use it in the daytime. I have found others that are at least as effective,if not more, with no smell.

    Comments about Castiva Arthritis Pain Relief Lotion, Warming, 4 oz:

    The only thing you must remember when you use Castiva, is wash your hands after applying. If not you may put them where it will sting like crazy. Such as eyes or on your child where it would sting or pet even. But it works so well, I don't care about washing my hands after use.

        castor oil might work about as good but leaves a oilly residue which gets all over your clothes. This does not and is just as effective if no more so.

            I got this as a sample in the mail and was impressed with how fast and completely it relieved my pain. A little goes a long way so the price is not too expensive. I would pay any price to be pain free.

            Comments about Castiva Arthritis Pain Relief Lotion, Warming, 4 oz:

            The effects build up. You should use it at least once a day but twice a day is better. At first it does seem to ease the pain but with repeated uses you really do see a difference. It works on arthritis, fibromyalgia pain and any muscle aches aftrer exercising a lot.

            I've tried a lot of products for arthritis pain but this one is really the best. It has no unpleasant smell and the warming effects are more subtle than straight capsican. I think the lasting effects are because of the castor oil which heals just about everything.l

                I saw the advertisement on TV and purchased both the regular at a local drug store that only carries it. I continued to buy it until they no longer carry it, came on and found your Web Page and ordered fromo you, which I will continue doing. I was much more efficient ordering from you, it came promptly and you also had two; one with heat and one without, which I purchased both. It was a pleasure doing business with you and I will continue to do so. Rita Good

                Comments about Castiva Arthritis Pain Relief Lotion, Warming, 4 oz:

                Castiva warming lotion really helps soothe my rotator tendonitis at night. While the package says it may burn, I have not found that the amount used to cover my shoulder causes any burning sensation. While it does not completely relieve the pain, I can certainly tell the difference and it soothes the pain. When I put it on during the day, I noticed that some rubbed off on my shirt, so I have only used it at home.
