Buy Tiger Balm White For Headaches Online

Tiger Balm is a traditional Chinese liniment which has been used for centuries to relieve mild muscle and joint pains. The topical balm is made from natural ingredients such as plant extracts and essential oils.

Tiger Balm White is the milder of the two Tiger Balms and, unlike Tiger Balm Red, does not penetrate deep into the muscles. It is available in a small, easy-to-carry pot which holds 30g of Tiger Balm.

What is Tiger Balm White used for?

Tiger Balm White is used to treat tension headaches (when applied on the forehead and temples).

Tension headaches can be brought on from:

  • bright lights
  • dehydration
  • loud noises
  • poor nutrition
  • squinting
  • stress and anxiety

Tension-type headaches are the most common form of headache that cause a persistent pain on both sides of the head.

Speak to your doctor before using Tiger Balm White if you are unsure whether you are experiencing a tension-type headache.

You can also use Tiger Balm White to treat mild muscle pain, such as neck and shoulder pain.

If you are unsure whether you should use Tiger Balm White, speak to your doctor or pharmacist.

How effective is Tiger Balm White for headaches?

Studies have shown that the combined effect of these extracts in Tiger Balm effectively relieves minor aches and pain when massaged into the affected area.

A randomised controlled trial of 57 patients showed that Tiger Balm had a significantly greater analgesic effect than placebo, similar to the effects of paracetamol.

Where can I buy Tiger Balm White?

You can buy Tiger Balm White over the counter from pharmacies, supermarkets and health food shops.

If you can’t get out to buy Tiger Balm White, you can buy Tiger Balm from Prescription Doctor. Order today before 3 pm and our UK pharmacy can dispatch your item today for a delivery tomorrow.


How does Tiger Balm White work?

Tiger Balm White contains a combination of essential oils and herbal extracts that can help to reduce the pain of tension headaches.

The ingredients of Tiger Balm White include:

  • Cajuput oil
  • Camphor
  • Clove oil
  • Levomenthol

Clove oil has a mild pain relieving effect. It is used to treat various kinds of pain, including toothache.

Levomenthol relieves itching and irritation caused by bug bites.

Camphor and Cajuput (Cajeput) oil are counterirritants. They work by causing localised inflammation and irritation in one area to reduce inflammation and pain in another.


How do I use Tiger Balm White?

Always use Tiger Balm White as instructed in the patient information or as described by your doctor or pharmacist.

For muscular aches and pains (For adults or children over the age of two years): Rub Tiger Balm White on the affected parts of the skin when needed, usually 2 to 3 times a day.

For tension headaches (Adults only): Apply a pea-sized amount of Tiger Balm White onto the forehead or the temples and lightly rub it in circular motions. Repeat this application after 30 minutes and one hour.

If your headache continues for longer than 24 hours, or if your headache returns intermittently throughout the week, speak to your doctor.

What should I do if I forget to use Tiger Balm White?

Do not apply a double quantity of the balm for a missed application.
