How To Use Tiger Balm Medicated Ointments, Balms And Liniments

Tiger Balm medicated ointments, balms and liniments have been traditionally used by generations of Asians throughout the world as a quick remedy for common ailments. These include:

  • Headaches and migraines
  • Stomach ache caused by wind in the tummy
  • Stuffy nose
  • Muscle aches and pain
  • Itching and pain caused by insect bites

Here are some of the effective ways that you can use Tiger Balm medicated ointments, balms and liniments:

Sprains, muscle aches, arthritic and rheumatic conditions

For sprains in your feet and hands, soak the affected areas in a basin of warm water for 5 to 10 minutes. Towel dry and immediately massage Tiger Balm medicated ointment, balm or liniment into the affected areas gently. For other parts of your body like your shoulders, knees or elbows, etc, it is best to apply the Tiger Balm medication after a warm bath. Alternatively, you can use a slightly moist warm towel to warm the areas before application.

Stuffy nose

Prepare a basin of hot water and place it on a table. Apply Tiger Balm medicated balm under your nostrils. Use a towel large enough to drape it over your head. With your eyes closed, position your face just above the basin of hot water, making sure that the towel covers the basin. Breathe in the steam till your nasal passage clears.

Expelling wind from stomach

Prepare a basin of warm water and a towel large enough to cover your tummy. Apply a small amount of Tiger Balm liniment or balm onto your tummy and massage well into the area. Soak the towel into the basin. Wring the water from the towel, making sure that the towel is still slightly moist. Use the warm towel to cover your tummy. Repeat the process once the towel cools down.

Headaches and migraines

For fast relief of headaches and migraines, place a warm towel on your forehead. Apply a small amount of Tiger Balm medicated balm to both sides of your temple and massage well into the area.

Camphor also increases blood circulation to the tissue area, thereby speeding up the healing process. Camphor also has a mild local anesthetic action and is frequently used to relieve muscular aches and pains, sprains, insect bites and local skin irritation.
