Tiger Balm -- Pain Relieving Balm and Patches

I was sent a sample of Tiger Balm ointment as well as a envelope with five Tiger Balm patches. First off, the balm’s active ingredients are camphor as well as menthol. The smell is very relaxing and soothing, not offensive or overly strong like other rubs or balms out there. One of the ingredients that is also easy to pick out the scent of is clove. Clove oil also contains analgesic properties.
The balm does exactly what is says it does, it provides temporary relief with strains/sprains and muscle aches. After tough workouts or weight workouts lately I have used the balm the next day to help relax tight tired muscles. The balm is very easy to apply. There is capsicum, the heating ingredient in a chili pepper, which creates the warm sensation you will feel after applying. The balm starts working within being applied after a few minutes or so, gradually warming up. The warming sensation lasts about 45 minutes, however this can be different depending upon how much you use as well as spread around. The balm or patches should not be used on open wounds or broken skin.  Tiger Balm also comes inside patches which are each 4 X 2. 75 inches. These work great on the lower back and shoulders where I have used them on. A great smelling and very effective balm to soothe sore joints and muscles. 

Be entered to win, one full-sized product from Tiger Balm by simply following myself on Twitter @timhakr as well as @Tiger_Balm_US. Then post on Twitter mentioning my blog post about Tiger Balm, using both of us in a tweet.  On Thursday July 28, 2016 at 12 noon a winner will be randomly selected.  Good Luck!
