The original formula Medicated Oil, popularly known as the cool formula, and the hot one are made from the same recipe. They both have hot and cool effects. The difference between the two is that the hot one has more hot potions than the other. These ingredients help the drug to penetrate into muscles deeper.
When there is a minor accident such as knife cuts, fresh wounds, falls, tendon inflammation, or sprains, the original formula Medicated Oil is more suitable because its benefits are as follows;
- Staunches the bleeding.
- Works as an astringent.
- Soothes sore muscles, swelling, sprains or strains.
- Treat inflammation
- Relieves bone and joint pain, including pain from bone fractures.
With the characteristics of the Medicated Oil that is absorbed quickly and does not irritate the skin, it can be applied on fresh wounds. It helps to cool and relieve pain.
The hot formula should not be used for fresh wounds or accidents. It will add heat to the area which is already hot because the blood has gathered together. The use of hot formulas can cause symptoms to exacerbate and sting the skin. However, when used in normal conditions, it will give you a warm and comfortable feeling, not irritated at all.
In case of sprains or tendonitis, after using the original formula for a while and symptoms have improved but have not completely disappeared, it should be changed to the hot formula. This is because the cause may be in the deep area that the original formula cannot reach.
