When it comes to choosing between our Outback Oil and Outback Pain Cream, it's all about finding what works best for you and your specific needs. Today, I'm doing a deep dive into the differences between the two so that you can have the confidence to go forward and make the right choice for your pain management journey.

From ingredients to application methods, we'll cover it all, ensuring you have all the information you need to make an informed decision. So, without further ado, let's dive into the details and clear up any confusion you may have.


Outback Oil

Ingredients: We're talking pure Aussie goodness here—100% natural and just four ingredients: tea tree oil, eucalyptus oil, vanilla extract, and olive oil. It's like a little slice of the Outback in a bottle!

Pain Conditions: Outback Oil is your go-to for targeting the root cause of pain—inflammation. Whether it's neuropathy, sciatica, arthritis, plantar fasciitis, or fibromyalgia, this oil has your back (and your joints, and your muscles... you get the idea).

Application: It's as easy as rub and go! Just massage it in and wipe away any excess. Simple, effective, and no fuss.


Outback Pain Cream

Ingredients: While not 100% all-natural, our pain cream still packs a punch with menthol (16%) and camphor (6%). Think of it as nature's cooling squad, ready to soothe those aches and pains.

Pain Conditions: Need immediate relief from fibromyalgia, arthritis, muscle aches, strains, bruises, or sprains? The Outback Pain Cream is your go-to. It's like a soothing balm for your body's woes.

Application: Just slap it on and rub it in! The cream absorbs quickly, so you can get back to doing what you love without missing a beat.


Which one for acute pain vs. long-term discomfort?

  • Acute Pain: If you're dealing with a sudden, sharp pain—like a muscle strain or sprain—the Outback Pain Cream is your best bet. Its heating and cooling sensation provides immediate relief when you need it most.

  • Long-Term Discomfort: Now, here's the kicker—both Outback Oil and Outback Pain Cream can help with ongoing discomfort. It all boils down to whether you want that heating and cooling sensation or prefer all-natural ingredients. Your call, mate!


They both say they work for fibromyalgia and arthritis, so which one should I use?

Again, mate, it all comes down to your preference. 

If you prefer a more natural approach and don't mind skipping the heating and cooling sensation, go for the Outback Oil. But if you're all about that instant relief and don't mind a little extra kick, the Outback Pain Cream is the way to go.

Either way, you're in good hands with Outback.


How does the Outback Oil help with neuropathy?

Neuropathy often stems from inflammation and nerve damage, which is where Outback Oil swoops in like a superhero. Packed with natural ingredients like tea tree oil, eucalyptus oil, vanilla extract, and olive oil, this magical elixir targets inflammation at its source.

By tackling inflammation, Outback Oil helps alleviate the pressure on your nerves, easing that tingling and numbness associated with neuropathy. It's like giving your nerves a little vacation in the Outback—soothing, calming, and oh-so-relaxing.


You have a lot of different Outback Oil products - are they all the same? Which one should I get?

If you're wondering whether the different Outback Oil products offer varying formulas or benefits, the answer is no—they're all the same high-quality Outback Oil, just in different bottles and quantities.

Whether you choose the Roll-On, Spray Bottle, Pump Bottle, or Sachets, you can trust that you're getting the same effective relief in every application. So, feel free to pick the size and type that best suits your preferences and lifestyle!

Here's a quick guide to help you choose:

  • Roll-On: Convenient and easy to apply, perfect for targeted application, and easy to stash in your bag or pocket, the Roll-On is great for on-the-go relief. It comes in a convenient 50mL size.
  • Spray Bottle: Need to reach those tricky spots? The Spray Bottle is your go-to. Its fine mist makes application a breeze, and it's ideal for covering larger areas. Comes in a handy 150mL size.
  • Pump Bottle: If you're a fan of the Outback Oil and want plenty on hand, the 300mL Pump Bottle has got you covered. It's perfect for daily use and ensures you won't run out anytime soon.
  • Outback Oil Sachets: Always on the move? Grab a few Outback Oil Sachets for portable relief wherever you go. Slip them in your purse, gym bag, or travel kit for instant relief on demand.


Can I use both?

Absolutely, mate! When it comes to managing your pain, why choose just one when you can have the best of both worlds?

Using both Outback Oil and Outback Pain Cream can be a winning combo, especially if you're dealing with multiple types of discomfort or need different forms of relief throughout the day.

Here's how you can do it:

1. Start your day with a soothing massage of Outback Oil. Its all-natural ingredients will work their magic, targeting inflammation and providing gentle relief from chronic conditions like arthritis or neuropathy.

2. Keep a tube of Outback Pain Cream handy for those moments when you need instant relief on the fly. Whether you're out and about or at home, its heating and cooling sensation will provide quick relief from acute pain, allowing you to get on with your day.


What are the directions for use?

Outback Oil:

Apply generously to the affected area(s), massaging gently until absorbed. Use enough for smooth coverage. If the aroma lingers after 15 minutes, wipe away excess.

If this is your first time using Outback, apply 3-4 times daily for 7-10 days, then as needed. The more consistently you use it, the more effective and efficient it will become.

Adjust frequency for ongoing relief.


Pain Cream:

Apply generously to the affected area(s). Massage until thoroughly absorbed into the skin. Repeat if necessary, but no more than 4 times daily.


So, whether you're dealing with a sudden twinge or managing long-term discomfort, we've got your back (literally!) with both our Outback Oil and Outback Pain Cream. It's all about finding what feels right for you and your body.

I have been using the roll-on for foot pain, be it neuropathy or arthritis. This product is very effective & the pain & discomfort cease almost immediately. As I didn’t know it could be used on different body parts I will try it on my arthritic shoulders, spine & hands. I may try the pain cream but the oil works well so why bother?

The oil works great for my feet, it does clam the nerves in the bottom of my feet. The cream helps the pain in both my shoulders after joint replacement . The menthol smell helps to soothe and relax me. Using both helps me to achieve a great nights sleep.
