Dr. Dabb's cream (and oil) are fantastic products. The cream absorbs well, does not have any unpleasant smells, and it works great. I use it whenever I have some aches and pains and even when I have cramps. It's absolutely my go-to pain and calming relief! I love it so much I've given it to several of my family members to try. My husband, who doesn't believe anything could help his back pain, uses it religiously now. It's the real deal!
