Tiger Balm Review & Giveaway ** Closed**

I don't know if you have tried Tiger Balm products yet, but if you haven't and you suffer from arthritis or any sore muscle aches and pain, it really does help. We got to review the Pain Relieving Patches for Arthritis and Back Pain, Muscle Aches and Strains. There are 5 patches to each box.
Because I have RA really bad and have to take either shots or infusions for it and I have Fibromyalgia, sometimes these work for me and then other times when the pain is so great, I have to take my pain meds. But, if yours is something simple, like you just worked too long bent over or just have plain Arthritis, then you will see a difference. I even gave one to my best friend and she said it helped her out alot.

They are real easy to use. Here are the Directions:

**Adults and children 12 years and over apply to affected area; change patch 1 to 2 times daily
**Children under 12 years, consult doctor

How to apply:
**Clean and dry affected area
**Cut open pouch and remove patch
**Remove protective film and apply directly to area of pain
**Apply to affected area not more than 3 times daily
**Wash hands with soap after applying patch
**Reseal pouch containing unused patches

Active Ingredients:
Menthol (24 mg/patch), Camphor (80 mg/patch),
and Capsicum Extract (16 mg/patch)

Definitely, wash your hands right away. I forgot to do that one time a long time ago on a different kind of cream and man, I just barely touched my nose and it got hot! I can just imagine what it would do to your eye area so be extra careful and wash your hands immediately. What I do when I have to help Mike put the patches on or even a cream, I either use rubber gloves or I go stand by the kitchen sink and already have a paper towel laying there so that as soon as I am done, I can wash my hands and dry them off. Less likely a chance of making a mistake. Please do not use anywhere except externally.

Some other helpful directions:

**Use only as directed
**Avoid contact with eyes and mucous membranes
**Do not apply to wounds, damaged or irritated skin
**Do not bandage or cover with wrap or use heating pad
**Do not use 1 hour prior to bathing or 30 minutes after bathing

Stop use and ask a doctor if:

**Condition worsens
**Severe skin irritation occurs
**Pain persists for more than 7 days
**Pain clears up and then recurs a few days later

Those last set of directions about stopping are very important. I knew when mine got to the point that nothing was helping that something wasn't right and it took a good bit of tests and such but we finally narrowed it down to RA and Fibromyaglia. By that time the RA in my knee's was so bad that both had to be replaced. I still have aches and pains because when it gets cold or rains, it just does something to the titanium (what they used in my knee replacement)

Tiger Balm has several other products also that you can try for different types of pain. They have regular, extra and ultra. So, whatever range you might fit in, there will be something that should help you if all you have is ordinary sore muscles because you worked too long or if you have minor arthritis. The creams and gels along with the patches used to help me in the beginning but after a certain point, I knew something else was going on and so will you. I would recommend trying these products first before taking oral medications because it is just better on your stomach. If you take too many inflammation type meds they can mess with your stomach some and cause ulcers. If the creams or patches don't work, I would consult a doctor first before taking alot of over the counter oral meds just to be safe.

Here is a little bit of History I found out about Tiger Balm:
Tiger Balm has risen from the ancient courts of Chinese emperors to worldwide prominence.

It all began when Aw Chu Kin, a Chinese herbalist working in the Emperor’s court, left China and set up a small medicine shop called Eng Aun Tong in Rangoon in the late 1870s, where he would make and sell his special ointment that was effective in relieving all kinds of 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 since been immortalized as one of the world’s best-known pain-relieving formulations. The rest as they said, was history.
