Cooling linament

Great product. The ache seems to subside and joints feel better after use. Good for muscle injuries. Soothing.

not what i remember

had a work related injury years ago and was given a bottle of the veterinary liniment for the body ache. it was phenomenal, when i saw it was commercially available through Amazon i was quick to buy two bottles. the warming level/medicinal value of the newer product didn't have anywhere near the same effect. other than fragrance, i would be hard pressed to say it was a liniment. did the formulary change?

Hey Bob! We get this question often. We have not changed the formula or made it less powerful. What happens with old bottles that have been kept around for a long time is the liquid evaporates away slowly and this makes the menthol more concentrated. So when you buy a new bottle, it feels less strong than your old evaporated bottle. We do make a Gel version of the product that has a higher level of menthol than the liquid version if you wanted a stronger formula. Thanks!

7th month and going with Excruciating Sciatica Pain from apparently riding my grass mower too vigorously!!
What a horrible way to be debilitated and lose everything you have built a lifetime only to be sidelined AND FORGET STANDING or WALKING for OVER A MINUTE!
And if it wasn't for my can just imagine the rest!
ABSORBINE is only for Horses! NOT!! This stuff is the ultimate in PAIN RELIEF for this retiree!
I cut it 50% Absorbine to 50% Water for my sensitive skin.
So don't be afraid to do something different, just be aware of what you are doing AND do your online homework as I HAD/HAVE TO DO!!

Absorbine Veterinary Liniment

wonderful stuff. used to buy regular absorbine, but this works just as well (for me, at least) and is more cost efficent, esp. as it comes in pint and quart size.
