Here is a review for you: Tiger Balm, Ultra Strength

As many of you know, I have a lot of health issues.  Fibromyalgia, Knee replacement (and other knee issues), spinal reconstructions and various other health issues.  I have tried so many different muscle rubs, patches, and pills.  For me, not much works real well, and I am always looking for something new to try.

Well, years ago, I remember using TigerBalm, regular.  It worked pretty good, but, of course, if you use something too long, it just doesn't work very well anymore. So, I went back to trying out various other things, with no luck.

Now that I have all these new health issues, I mentioned, and the pain can be incredibly over the top.  When we went shopping, I made my usual trip to the analgesic aisle.  I saw several new things, but most too expensive to try.  But there on the shelf was my old favourite and stand by, "Tiger Balm", but right next to it was something new, "Tiger Balm Ultra Strength".

I brought it home, and gave it a try.  I put it on my knee which was screaming bloody murder at me by that time.  And after about fifteen minutes, I could feel that old familiar tingling start to set in.  Then it went beyond, and as time went on I started to feel a soothing warming sensation, and as more time went on, a cooling sensation moved in after the heat.  Let me tell you, my knee was, as Phil Robertson says, "happy, happy, happy" ...LOL.  I got some soothing relief that gave me some more freedom of motion, and pain relief than I had gotten from any other source.

The great thing about Tiger Balm, is that it is all natural.  It doesn't rely on capsaicin like all the other sources use.  Tiger Balm's main active ingredients are camphor and menthol.  But the other ingredients clove, mint, and such, also give it a very pleasant scent that goes well with the warming and cooling qualities it gives you when you massage it in.  The more you rub it in, the warmer/cooler the area becomes.  And you won't smell like you came out of the locker room!

All I can say, is wash your hands thoroughly after use, and don't rub your eyes.  This is a really great product and it doesn't cost an arm and a leg.  If you want something that actually works, then this is the product for you.
