ointment for sore throat and sprained extremities

User Reviews

Strongest points
+ great treating properties
+ neat and sturdy packaging
+ menthol smell
+ 'best before' does not apply imho
+ cheap as dirt
Weakest points
- avoid eyes and sensitive areas in general - too potent to be rubbed in/close to those areas
- might cause a profuse sweating in the affected area if it is applied too much
Summary
I was lucky to purchase White Tiger Balm in Thailand back in 2010. This balm has since proven to be a great thing against colds and muscle sprains. Believe or not, I still have a bit left and it works after all these years, thus I think that 'best before' term might not apply to this product much i.e. it is still as good as new. I usually rub the balm in the area of my upper chest (right below the clavicles) if I have some type of cold or cough. It takes 1-2 minutes for the balm menthol properties to kick in - and there is a slight burning (not an unpleasant one), tingling and, at first, a sensation of cooling followed by a surge of heat that lasts for 1-2 hours at least. Such treatment is more effective for me than a cup of hot tea with lemon (in terms of the heat it generates). Muscles cramps can be dealt in a same way - by rubbing into the sore area. One more good thing - just a little quantity of the balm will do the job. Be sure not to use too much since you perhaps will be sweating profusely due to 'heating' features of the balm. The scent is extremely potent but in a good way. However, I would advice to avoid rubbing it close to sensitive areas - eyes, under nose/lips, it could burn a little or irritate with its smell. I have never used it to heal the headache, but I could see how it could be done. The ointment's packaging is small, neat and sturdy - fit for travelling around the world and being 'a friend in need' should any of the abovementioned health troubles befall you.
I strongly recommend White Tiger Balm, it is a good thing to have both in the purse and a first aid kit.

I have had a pot of Tiger Balm ointment in my house since 1970 when my parents lived in Malaysia.I find it excellent for colds and use some in hot water as an inhalant. I also find a little on the temples works to reduce stress headaches. It is also great rubbed on bumps to reduce bruising and massaged on muscles and backs as you would any muscle easing balm.It is a little like Vicks in that it can feel cold on the skin and also warm the skin. Beware though of getting it in eyes, cuts, broken skin or sensitive body bits as it stings and the sting lasts ages.

Summary
I have tried this and the original for back pain and both have worked really well.
This particular one I found somewhere else very cheap and used it loads.
I used it on all kinds of aches and pains around the body.
Easy to massage into the skin and absorbs well, not all at once though, does take a few hours to fully soak in which means it lasts longer.

I was introduced to Tiger Balm many years ago whilst on a tropical holiday where there was a huge problem with mosquitoes. When the itching and pain became unbearable a member of hotel staff sourced this product for me. Until now it was only available abroad or in airports. This balm really is a miracle worker. It is made from 100% natural herbal ingredients including menthol, camphor, mint and clove oils. Each of these ingredients has a rapid and remarkable effect on the skin as natural painkillers. I have so many uses for this ointment and carry it with me on every holiday as well as having a pot at home.
The balm has a thick greasy texture and is white in colour. There is not much difference in effects to the red balm, however, the fragrance is slightly less potent and it does not stain light coloured clothing. I do find that the red balm is slightly stronger in effect on stings and bites than the white. The fragrance is extremely strong in a menthol way but do not be put off by this. Its uses and benefits far outweigh the scent! It has almost immediate effects once applied to the skin and I use this for the following:

1) Bites and stings – it relieves the itch and pain immediately whilst calming and healing the affected area
2) For headaches – applied to forehead and temples it almost immediately soothes the pain
3) For muscle pain, strains and bruises – when ,massaged into the skin it acts as a natural painkiller
4) For nasal congestion – a small amount applied to a handkerchief or in a hot water bath immediately decongests and unblocks the sinuses

You must always keep this product away from your eyes and broken skin but topically I have never found another product like it! The pot lasts for over a year with constant use and the single most used SOS product in our household. If you have never tried Tiger Balm and want a 100% natural alternative to drug based products I cannot recommend this highly enough!
