When Tiger Balm Red, White and Oil is applied to the skin, the rubefacient and analgesic properties provide symptomatic relief from the pain and discomfort associated with the muscular aches and pains of muscles and joints, arthritis pain, rheumatism pain and backaches. The active ingredients in camphor and the natural essential oils in Tiger Balm dilate the peripheral blood vessels and bring blood closer to the skin's surface. This produces increased circulation and warmth. The increase in blood flow speeds up the healing process. This also increases the temperature of the skin and the sensation of warmth serves as a distraction from the pain. The local analgesic effect reduces the sensation of pain.
