Over 100 years ago, Imperial court herbalist, Aw Chu Kin, left China and set up his humble medicine shop in Burma (or Myanmar). His vision was to sell and make known a unique, soothing herbal ointment, originally formulated in the Imperial courts of China. Over the years, Tiger Balm became a household name throughout the world. Available in a variety of formats including easy-to-use patches, Tiger Balm delivers fast-acting, effective relief of mild muscle and joint pain. We're pleased to offer popular Tiger Balm Arthritis Rub, patch and ointments. Tiger Balm—works wherever it hurts!
