Grooming 411: Miracle Gel for an Achy Neck

The husband came home after a long day (actually, after multiple long days) at the office with tightness and serious pain in his trapezius muscle (likely caused by hunching over at his desk). I suggested he rub some Tiger Balm on it, but then remembered I had something in my medicine cabinet that might be even better. Or it at the very least wouldn’t stain his clothes since it’s lighter in color. The product: China-Gel, $15.95. It contains menthol, camphor, ginseng, angelica, lavender oil, witch hazel and aloe vera, and when massaged into skin, it’s meant to help soothe aches and pains with a icy-hot feeling. Here’s what the hubby says about it:

  • “It’s stronger than Bengay, and it smelled good.”
  • “It rubbed in easy.”
  • “The coolness (that’s also hot) intensified after I put my shirt on over it.”
  • “Because it’s strong, you become more conscience of the rub than the pain.”
  • “It’s similar to Tiger Balm, but rubbed in easier and is lighter in color.”
  • “It soothed the pain enough that I forgot about it, and after using it for two days, the pain was gone.”

The company says it can be used on a multitude of things from muscle pain to headaches and insect bites, so I think we’ll be ordering another tub of this hard-working rub.

  1. Good post. I learn something new and challenging on blogs I stumbleupon every
    day. It will always be useful to read through content from other writers and practice something from other sites.
