Thai tiger balsam (or tiger ointment), “legend in a jar” is a locally irritating, highly warming agent based on herbal ingredients. The active ingredients are camphor, menthol, cajaput oil, peppermint oil and clove oil.
Red Tiger Balm , due to its local irritating and analgesic properties, provides relief from pain and discomfort, aching muscles and joints, arthritis, rheumatism and back pain.
Camphor, which is part of the tiger ointment, expands the peripheral blood vessels, due to which the blood becomes closer to the surface of the skin. This produces a thermal effect and increases blood circulation. The increased blood flow speeds up the healing process. At the same time, the temperature of the skin also rises, and the sensation of warmth distracts attention from the pain, significantly alleviates pain.
Thai Red Tiger Balm is considered one of the best local analgesics in the world.
