I ama server in a restaurant and I aslo take dance lessons in my free time, so needless to say that I use my body and my feet more than the average person does. I have tried a lot of ointments before and none of them really worked. Plus they smell mentholy all the time. I don't know what is about this balm but I have never felt the relief that I do when I put it on. Highly recommend! Must try, even if this is your last resort. Perfect for muscles and joints ache.
