There is no need to use products by such corporations when
alternatives exist.
If your town has a Chinatown, you can get Tiger Balm sore muscle rub
for $3 or less...here in NYC it's everywhere.
there is also a company making something called Hemp Zap - no
petroleum (my big pet peeve is what US and British oil companies do in
the world) and it's labelled vegan, although Tiger Balm (petroluem
based, nowhere near as sticky-nasty as Vicks) claims to be vegan these
days too.
Both these products contain clove and cajeput, as well as menthol and
camphor. I'm not seeing much of a difference putting them on terped
designs, though, and I sure as hell wouldn't want to add any of these
things to my henna paste!


: As a pet shop owner you would think I would have found this out
: before one way or another.
: We boycott Eukanuba and Iams products as they are owned by Proctor
: and Gamble, and we have reason to belive that P & G do nasty things
: to animals to prove that Iams and Eukanuba are good for your pet!
: Heres the point... P & G also make Vicks vapour Rub, something I used
: regularly as per its intended use and also to experiment in pastes.
: Of course this product is now on my boycott list, gotta admit it
: didn't do much to my paste mixes anyways!
: It's obviously your choice but perhaps now a few less people will use
: the product, if you want to know of others let me know.
