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. Then literally, within half an hour or less the pain melts away. And it lasts.
The team at Beauty and the Bess suggests:
Take a hot/warm bath with bath salts if possible to relax and warm the body.
Warm a small amount of product between the hands, and smooth onto affected area.
Work well into the supporting and surrounding musculature for at least five minutes to bring blood to the surface capillaries. For maximum benefit use a warm wheat pack on the area to boost warmth.
The Tasmanian Tiger Massage Balm is formulated with pure macadamia oil, certified (BFA) sunflower and olive oil, cocoa butter, Tasmanian leatherwood beeswax, 12 pure essential oils including kunzea, nutmeg, rosemary, cajeput, wintergreen and turpentine.
About the Tasmanian Tiger
The thylacine was the largest known carnivorous marsupial of modern times. It is commonly known as the Tasmanian tiger (because of its striped lower back). Native to the island state of Tasmania it is believed to have become extinct in the 20th century. The last captive creatures died in the Tasmanian Zoo in the 1930’s. Hunted to extinction. Although there are stories and legends that it does still exist in the wilderness, sadly it’s probably just a modern myth.
