      I recently tried Tiger Balm patches for the first time and really liked them. My back problems have been severe on and off for the past year and a half or so, and I’ve found that the only way I can really treat the pain is through the use of pain relieving creams and patches. I’d been to the doctor about this problem several times and it always comes down to him suggesting I get physical therapy, which I just can’t afford. I work less than 40 hours a week and have awful medical coverage and so physical therapy has never been in the budget for me. The only other option was rest, and I couldn’t afford that either because I needed every last hour I was getting from work. I ended up relying heaving on pain relieving creams and patches and hot and cold packs to help get me by, and then recenlty had my hours cut

      (on purpose) which has helped, but now I need to get right back to doing fuller work weeks, unfortunately, and I’ve already felt the twinges of pain starting up again.

      I bought the Tiger Balm patches and they worked wonders, so when I saw this small little Tiger Balm Ultra Strength Travel, I really wanted it. It was only two dollars and came in a conveniently sized tin that looked a lot like a Carmex container, only slighter larger. It was still small enough to fit into my pocket or my make-up bag, and that is what really held the appeal for me, I think. I tend to gravitate towards products that are convenient on some level or another, and this one fit the bill as far as its size was concerned. It contains camphor and menthol which is pretty much a staple in any pain relieving cream, but the thing I really liked about this is all the other essential oils that were in it as well. Cajuput, Clove, Cassia and Mint oils were all used in this product, and boy can you really smell it when you pop open the lid to that tiny tin. I’ve become pretty used to the smell of these kinds of products, I’m so used to it at this point that I actually don’t much care for odorless products because for some reason I relate how well it’s going to work with how strongly it smells, so there might be a bit of a placebo effect going on. And if the smell of this product was anything to go by, then it was definitely going to work really well!

      You can use this product up to four times a day, but it’s suggested that you don’t exceed that amount. I found that this was much harder to apply than the typical creams I’ve used in the past, because it ...

      was more like a very hard and thick gel, pretty much exactly like a Carmex lip balm container. The consistency is very thick, and I felt like I really had to dig in there to get the stuff to come out, and even then it still felt like I was hardly applying any of it at all. I’m used to using the creams that you can apply very liberally and it takes five minutes to get it rubbed in well, but it was hardy to just get this stuff out of the container and onto my back to begin with. After fiddling with it for a while, and holding the container in my fist for about ten minutes to warm it up and melt it a little bit for easier application, I was finally able to get out an amount that I was happy with and I rubbed that in really good, with massage-like movements to really work
      it into my skin.

      And it worked wonders! Usually creams don’t last that long for me, maybe an hour at most, and I feel like I have to reapply it way more often than it’s recommended, but with this product, after it was thoroughly rubbed in, the relief seemed to last a couple hours. At least twice as long as other creams I’ve tried, and the relief was immediate upon application as well, or at least within a minute or two, once it was massaged in real well. I will definitely be purchasing this product again in the future. I like to have something on-the-go that’s very small and easy to carry because sometimes I need an emergency “dose” when I’m at work, and this is great to keep in my pocket. The smell is strong, but at least it works and ultimately that’s all I really care about. Excellent product, much better than their cream actually, which I’ve tried in the past.
