This balm is indeed aromatic consisting of several very fragrant essential oils.\nCamphor White Fraction, Yellow Birch, Peppermint, Eucalyptus Globulus, Cinnamon Leaf, Cajeput, and Clove combined with Menthol Crystals make this balm at once warming and cooling in its application to sore, aching, painful muscles. It can even be used for those leg and foot cramps that occasionally visit us during our sleep.\nApart from use as a muscle remedy, it can be used to assist in breaking up congestion in the ears, nose, and chest. Gentle external application downward behind the affected ear and down the side of the neck; gentle external application to the outer sides of the nose; or gentle application to the chest can help relieve congestion. Thereby, it has the potential to reduce any infection developing in those areas. \nThis is a powerhouse combination of essential oils. Please wash hands thoroughly after applying this balm. The essential oils in it are very concentrated and contact on lips or near eyes is contraindicated. There is potential for skin irritation and\/or sensitization. Avoid use on open wounds. Avoid the product completely during pregnancy and lactation. Avoid use with infants and small children.
