    Invented in the 1870s, this pain relieving ointment has been perfected throughout the past century and has now become a household name across the world. The iconic Tiger Balm is the best known product on this list, having made a discernable impact on North American market and become a household name across the country. Tiger Balm comes in a variety of formats, but the major two are the white and red formulas. Almost identical in composition, these two balms do have different uses, properties and effect; the red formula is notably stronger, and creates a mild heat sensation as well as a cooling one, whereas the white formula is more versatile and simply cooling.

    White

    As mentioned before, the white formula is more commonly used as a decongestant than the red one, due to its proportionally higher content in mint; as it is milder, it can also be less irritating to the skin for prolonged use, and very small quantities can be applied to more sensitive zones. Mucous regions, however, should still be avoided altogether.

    Uses:

    ·Decongesting chest, nose

    ·Relief from minor headaches caused by muscular tension

    ·Can be used to relieve muscle and joint pains 

    ·Relief from menstrual pain

    Medicinal ingredients:Dementholised mint oil, cajeput oil, camphor, menthol, clove oil

    Strength: ★★★☆☆

    Red

    With its slight scent of cinnamon and cloves, the red formula has a higher camphor content than its counterpart. It is therefore used mainly for pain relief, though it also creates a cooling sensation on the skin.

    Uses:

    • Primarily for muscle and joint pain
    • Can be used to relieve pains caused by arthritis, backaches, over-exertion

    Medicinal ingredients: Camphor, menthol, cajeput oil, dementholised mint oil, cinnamon oil, clove oil
