Too strong for my sensitive skin! It burned the skin right off my forehead. No, really - check out the photo. Guess it’s not meant for a headache?!

I truly swear by this stuff.. My local natural foods store carries it and I’m so glad they do because it’s the only place I’ve been able to find it and it is a miracle worker. I was stuck in bed for weeks with extreme morning sickness and it was really taking a toll on my back. I would put on a plastic glove and apply this product on my back before bed on nights where I was hurting. You could use your bare hands but you’d definitely want to wash them afterwards. The menthol smell is strong but I really don’t mind it. It goes back and forth between a cooling and heating sensation, which really helps me relax. I will never use icy hot again.

It's an acquired taste but I love the smell of tiger balm. I also love how cute the jar is, the tiger, and the color. It's easy to find in stores, and it works well for knots and pains, especially from working from home and sitting in one position. I've used the crap out of this one, as you can see.

Tiger Balm is intense to begin with, and the traditional formula (red) is like a bunch of very friendly suns warming and soothing your aching joints. It might dye your skin red, though! I'd say it's in the middle of affordable and pricey, but it's well worth it. Also, it'll pretty much last forever.

I love the tingling feel Tiger Balm gives you. I normally put a little around my neck and the top of my shoulders. I have different pain relievers for the rest of my body. I believe that Tiger Balm, works best for everything close to your head because it doesn’t have a strong scent to where it could make you dizzy and what not. I definitely recommend this product to relieve neck pain!

A little go a long way, this jar last me about 2 unless it been a bad winter season. This was gold in my parents house just like it is gold in my own house. I would recommend this to anyone.

Tiger Balm Extra Strength Ointment How does this product compare to other topical pain relief ointments or lotions?

I have used so many products to manage my back pain for years, my husband told me that this stuff was amazing while I was pregnant and I should have listened then because I tried it for the first time the other day and it instantly released the pain. It works better than any patch, gel, or rub on Earth.
