Got Tiger Balm?

I woke up with a stuffy nose today and decided to try Tiger Balm for the first time (I "bought" it on Singapore Air with a voucher they gave me because my audio didn't work on my entertainment system on the flight). It immediately cleared up my sinuses and quite possibly those of the entire neighborhood. This is good stuff, people!

How can you not love something that's description on the jar reads:

Fast and effective relief for headaches, stuffy nose, insect bites, itchiness, 
muscular aches and pains, sprains and flatulence. 
Apply Tiger Balm gently on the affected area.

We had plenty of discussion on the trip about where exactly you would apply it for flatulence ;)

If you are only going to have one thing in your medicine cabinet, sounds like Tiger Balm is the way to go.

{update - I was telling Caleb about this and he said his nose has been stuffy for about a week. One swipe of TB under his nose and he is cleared out. Love it!}

{update #2 - After reading the description to the kids, they decided we need to look for a Tiger Balm body wash for Paige. She has one of those ailments a lot. She just told me she has been "flatulating" all night.}


  1. She told me that she flatulated so loud the other morning that it woke her up. Poor thing.

    Big T

  2. LOL, "flatulating". I'm dying over here! :)

    I want some of that stuff!

  3. Okay, I read the same thing and thought to myself, if one were to put Tiger Balm in or on the effected area for flatulence, then flatulence would be the least of yurworries after that. It's the eqivalent of putting Vicks or Ben Gay on your back side. OUCH!


I would love to hear your thoughts!!
