Tasmanian Tiger Massage Balm by Beauty and the Bees - the Spa Man

Tasmanian Tiger Massage Balm beats medicated muscles gels by a mile

Seriously, The Tasmanian Tiger Massage Balm has helped to ease pain and muscle ache (plus knee pain) far better than any medicated muscle gel I’ve tried. I’ve put it to the test against Emugel and Iburprofen Gel and it works equally well, and actually better, because it’s not using drugs. This rich solid aromatic balm is formulated with Tasmania’s newest native essential oil, Kunzea (a member of the melaleauca family) which is certified and licensed by the TGA (Therapeutic Goods Authority, Australia). It’s topically applied as pain relief and helps massage away muscular aches and pains. It’s better than oil as it stays in one place! Great as a warming after-sports or workout rub. It’s a potent smell, very aromatic, almost pungent, but boy does it work a treat. The balm format, with beeswax, takes more time than oil alone to penetrate the skin leaving its benefits in contact with the skin longer. I massage a small amount of the Tasmanian Tiger Massage Balm into the area needed and make sure that I really work it in. …

Review: Cradle Mountain Lodge, Tasmania

THE HOTEL: Set in the alpine forests in the highlands of Tasmania, Peppers Cradle Mountain Lodge is surrounded by bush, native trees and crystal clear air. Private cabins set amongst the trees are homely with a few creature comforts, but not five-star, but this adds to their rustic charm. On entering the cabins you are met with a heady scent of pine wood and the embers of the wood fire. You could hide away for days and simple gaze at the surrounding trees and wild roaming animals; we were visited by wallabies, wombats and possums during our stay. There’s no TV (a good thing) iPod dock, but the best soundtrack is to open the door and let the sounds of the bird drift in. It’s magical. The bathroom was modern and recently renovated and you will love the large bedroom with sofa in front of the fire and a verandah/terrace to read or enjoy the scenery. Most people visit Cradle Mountain for bush walking and I highly recommend a walk to Marion’s lookout or Crater …
