As the formulator for Grace Harbor Farms Goat Milk Soaps and Lotions, Grace Lukens had been making skin care creams for several years. Then, in August of 2004, she became confined to a wheelchair with plantar fasciitis, a painful foot condition. For six months, she was in the wheelchair unable to walk at all. Someone told her she should be taking MSM as a food supplement to help reduce the inflammation in her feet. When she did research on MSM, she discovered that there are companies making topical creams with MSM for pain relief. "Well," she thought, "I'm a cream maker. I'll make my own." She had a basic cream formula that had been helpful for people with all kinds of skin problems so she decided to add MSM to that formula. “Since I am a Christian, I asked the Lord what else I should put in the MSM cream to make it more effective for pain”, she says.
“I really believe He gave me the formula.”
She added more MSM than anything else to her original skin care cream formula . Then she put in five essential oils with particular healing properties.
The result is our Naturally Gentle MSM Cream.
The MSM cream worked so well for Grace’s plantar fasciitis that she was soon back on her feet. As our customers began to use the MSM cream, their stories came back to us with reports of how well the MSM cream helps all sorts of pain and skin problems.

I received your MSM cream in the mail and want to thank you again. My feet are MUCH improved, healing more and more from just my nightly use of the cream. I will use this cream for my aches and pains as long as you continue to sell it - it has improved the quality of life for me! Not being able to even walk without pain was really starting to get me down. I not only am hopeful, I am actually better! My feet are feeling fantastic as I write this.

My feet are getting better everyday! We were in Bothell today visiting
family and I got to run around with my kids and niece pain free. We
stayed with my mom and I had her use the MSM cream and she wants a
bottle too! My friend wants to try it too for her carpal tunnel. Your
cream is truly healing and I am more hopeful about my feet than ever

Thank you Grace!
Also, while I'm emailing...
Thank you so much for your wonderful products. . . I used your MSM cream as you have directed on my feet after being diagnosed with plantar fasciitis, and after only one week it was almost completely gone -- the doctor was amazed and said she had never seen such an immediate change before. I continue to use it to keep my feet pain free and super soft. I have been getting all of my friends hooked on it as well. When they hurt a shoulder or knee, strain a muscle, etc., I let them use it and everyone can't believe the relief they feel right away. And of course everyone loves how great it smells. Of course we all love the soaps and other lotions too. Again, a very big THANK YOU!

Just want you to know I love this product. I have used it for my plantar faciasitis (don't know how to spell it) and it has really helped. I can actually wear my shoes all day and my feet no longer have that horrible pain during the day. I have already started another woman at work using it and hope she will have the same success I have. I am going to send some to my daughter because she has plantar warts all over the bottom of her feet. We are going to see if this will help. Thank you for your great service to those of us in pain.

I just want you to know that I love the MSM cream! I purchased a jar at the Puyallup Fair last year and use it faithfully for both plantar fasciiatis (sp?) and a chronic ankle sprain. It's been great
Here is how you can apply it for plantar fasciitis:
Place your ankle across your knee and pull your toes back to stretch the bottom of your foot. The plantar fascia will stand out from the bottom of your foot.
With your thumb apply the MSM cream to each side of the plantar fascia applying pressure as your thumb slides along the tendon. Start at the heel and work firmly toward your toes. You will feel little crunching and popping as you do. That is what you want to feel. Now apply the MSM cream to your whole foot and ankle, including the Achilles tendon. Do this twice a day. You will feel better right away.
