WHY A PATCH?
Natural Patches of Vermont were originally conceived as an alternative to traditional aromatherapy pain rubs. However they offer numerous advantages over not only these, but also many other traditional and aromatherapeutic products and applications.
PATCH VS. TRADITIONAL PAIN RUBS

Leaving no oily residue on the skin, either during use or upon removal, the patches require no clean-up and can be worn day or night, without fear of damaging clothing or bedding.
