This oil is a staple in Traditional Chinese Medicine cabinets for over 100 years. Unlike other medicinal oils, Po Sum On is an all-botanical formula, with no synthetic ingredients, and is much richer and thicker in texture than other warming oils, which are much thinner and more watery. Po Sum On is an externally applied oil for joint and muscle pain, including aches, sprains, bruises, as well as back pain and arthritis. It also relieves:
-Mild headache and dizziness due to motion sickness.
-Chest discomfort associated with bronchial cough.
-Mild abdominal pain and discomfort.
-Itching & swelling from insect bites.
This liniment is made from distilled botanical herbs, with no synthetic ingredients, and is a favorite of acupuncturists and athletes alike. An active ingredient, peppermint oil, has antispasmodic and pain relieving properties. Another active ingredient known as Dragon's blood is the herbal resin from the plant Daemonorops draco, and is used to increase blood circulation and tissue regeneration while also relieving pain, and gives the oil its recognizable red color. Cinnamon oil warms, promotes circulation, and relieves pain. Licorice helps relieve skin inflammation topically.
