The oil I use is a blend of lemongrass, eucalyptus globulus, and peppermint essential oils. It is way more intense than any of the tiger balms I`ve tried! (also 100% emu free)

I applied some with my hands once and then went about my chores, a restroom stop before finishing up, and jumping in the shower. Now I'm not sure the ladies would have the same problem. Once the water hit my nether regions I was doing a full blown shower River Dance with appropriate Celtic high notes. My wife just corrected me she says it sounded like Gaelic gibberish. Use caution with your homemade versions.
