Dragon & Tiger balm
The Chinese equivalent of Tiger Balm boasts a fifty-year pedigree and comes in 'cold' white and 'hot' red varieties, which differ in their proportions of sinus-blasting oils including menthol, camphor, peppermint, eucalyptus, clove and camphor. The former is especially good as a headache cure if you massage a bit on your temples (keep it away from your eyes) but both are touted as magical cure-alls for seasickness, lethargy, insect bites and blocked noses. 10RMB. Local pharmacies.
