You seriously need to try them both, they are better than some give them credit for :hattip:
Is the Siang Pure Oil available from the street corner pharmacies? Can you give a romanised version of the name, please?

Cheers. What do you do with this, rub it in the nostrils, drink it, insert it somewhere?

Use it much the same as you would Tiger Balm 'Hot' Red

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.

Listed below are the common active ingredients found in our range of Tiger Balm medicated / analgesic balms, ointments and liniments:

Camphor
Camphor has been used traditionally to treat rheumatism and inflammatory conditions. Camphor produces a sensation of warmth that helps to counter pain. 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.

Cajuput oil
Cajuput oil is antiseptic in nature. Cajuput oil eases the discomfort of rheumatism, pulled muscles or ligaments, sprains, bruises, muscle tension, slipped disk, low back pain and sciatica. Once the oil is applied, it produces a warm sensation and stimulates the blood circulation around the area of application.

Clove oil
Clove oil has strong disinfecting properties. The oil warms the skin and reduces swelling. It has anesthetic qualities and been effectively used for relieving pain and discomfort caused by arthritis and rheumatism. It also has insect repelling properties.

Menthol
Menthol is a compound obtained from peppermint oil or other mint oils. Menthol has local anesthetic and counterirritant qualities. It has been popularly used as a quick pain reliever for rheumatism and arthritis.

I wonder if this would work as well rubbing some just inside the nostrils - I shall try, and report back.

I note your post didn't include any information about treating hemorrhoids, I suspect some jokers were previously having a little joke with me.

Stay away from sick people.
Last big fight I was in was when I told my GF to cover her mouth when coughing. But we were living together in a small apartment, so this I-get-sick-you-get-sick bullshit really wasn't going to float with me.

I hope you were not referring to anyone on this [ or that other] forum.
Recently there was a large study investigating "how" people actually get sick from infectious illnesses as well as digestive ailments (especially when traveling). In short - your hands are your worst enemy. Hands Down! Period. Double Period. They are dangerous breeding petri dishes & no one is always conscious all the time of when their hands are touching mouth, nose & eyes. Wash. Wash. Wash.
I never eat without washing before eating anything (food or females) & reg wash before feeling up bar hostesses. Like helmets, pollution masks - Prudent hand washing is not for "real men" or...Libertarians.

Applies doubly when handling currency, and more so when the currency is cotton paper rather than plastic. Few things gross me as much as seeing a food handler who had gloved up as a hygiene requirement then handle currency with the same gloves. Actually, the 'stinky river' grosses me more on a warm day after the rain, but you get my point.

I was once told that this stuff is used as a standed punishment in mens prisons and in the rugby clubroom showers. Cover your hands with heaps of the stuff and grab the intended victim by the balls before he gets into the shower. Oh, the pain.

Teacher tip, from working with snotty nosed kids for years, take zinc tabs.

I didn't believe it when told about it, but I do now.

I always keep a small bottle of hand sanitiser in my pocket and use it regularly.

I think the hand washing has whats been saving me Dags. I'm anal ( no puns puleese!) when it comes to clean glasses in my bar and wash 90% of them myself. That's a good wash in soapy water and then a bloody good rinse in clean water, thus obviously washing and rinsing my hands at the same time.
