Foreign Friday

sign in the Tiger Balm Garden
December 1979
Before my trip to Singapore in 1979, I had never heard of Tiger Balm.

Have you heard of Tiger Balm or even tried it?


  1. Never heard of it, but I might have bought the product just because of the fabulous label.

  2. New to me too! Interesting artwork in the ad.

  3. Yes I have and yes I've used it. Great for headaches.

    I understand the original had opium in - bet it hasn't now.


  4. What??? Tiger Balm is an Asian Household staple!! I use the Thai version: White Siang Pure Balm and another, I forget the name of, it's not quite as strong. I put it on my temples when I have a headache. I sniff it (like some with vicks vapo) when I have bad sinuses. and yes, i put it on small achey spots. not a lotion or salve in the traditional sense. I grabbed the little pot I keep on my desk when I saw the picture! hehe!

  5. I have tried Tiger Balm for my back. I love the idea of it for headaches though... might have to find some again.

  6. I use tiger balm. There are 2 white and red. I use both of them. white for headache and red for any pains. It is very useful and get relief soon.

  7. I will have to look for it, this is the first I have seen it. Learn something new everyday! Thanks:)

  8. I love the stuff. Good for muscle aches, and it really clears the sinuses.
