This is Tiger balm
Any time i have muscle aches or pains i use this and it really does work . Obviously i have other tubs now ( too many according to the wife lol )
So for muscle aches and arthritic pains use this one ( do not use with new or white clothing this will stain )
For colds blocked up nose etc
And for shoulder and neck pains
I have plenty lol… but then i do need it for my ageing old body.
Oh and just so you know the older it is the better dont bin them .My 36 year old tub is hotter than the new ones.
I have one coming that is around 52 years old unopened…
Tempted to try that one
So if your sore and dont like the sprays like me as they smell bad get some t.balm
The old tubs with the embossed logo and writing on are no longer in use so dont chuck them away. They are classed as collector’s now.
One more thing
It is NOT made from tigers lol.
Legend has it that the story of Tiger Balm began in the ancient courts of Chinese Emperors, when Aw Chu Kin, a Chinese herbalist working in the Emporor’s Court, left China and set up a small medicine shop called Eng Aun Tong in Rangoon in the late 1870’s, where he would make and sell his special ointment that was effective in relieving aches and pains.
When Aw Chu Kin died in 1908, he left his business to his two sons Aw Boon Haw (meaning ‘gentle tiger’) and Aw Boon Par (meaning ‘gentle leopard’). They took the business to Singapore and successfully sold their ointment to surrounding countries like Malaya, Hong Kong, Batavia, Siam and various cities in China. Aw Boon Haw was the marketing genius who named the product Tiger Balm.
Tiger Balm has been passed on from generation to generation and its legend continues to the modern day with new consumers discovering the brand all over the world.
Yay i found my small tin.
