We get this question a lot from customers. In order to clear the air, so to speak, we're going to break down the awesome scent of Battle Balm in Master-Grasshopper fashion...and answer a few other questions along the way.
Grasshopper: Master, Why is Battle Balm® so effective for treating my aches and pains?
Master: Young grasshopper, Battle Balm® is created from energy of the sun, the sky, and the earth. Plants harness all that natural energy and turn it into powerful medicine that you and I benefit from. The makers of Battle Balm® have studied the ancient medicinal texts and uncovered specific herbs to naturally fight pain and bring you the healing relief you seek.
Grasshopper: Master, does Battle Balm® have a characteristic smell?
Master: Grasshopper, examining the complex scent of Battle Balm® is akin to discovering the instruments in an orchestra. Battle Balm® contains overtones of menthol and wintergreen, with a mild hint of camphor. A faint amber earthiness arises from frankincense and myrrh. Other, more delicate undertones may come out when you pay closer attention.
Grasshopper: Master, why does Battle Balm® smell herbal?
Master: Little one, why does a rose smell like a rose? Nature's creations only know how to be one thing...and that is as nature intended. Battle Balm® knows no scent other than that of blended natural medicinal herbs.
Grasshopper: Master, will I like the smell of Battle Balm®?
Master: If your foot is on fire, would you concern yourself with the smoke? If pain is your enemy, why trifle with unimportance? If the smell of Battle Balm® is your concern, then your enemy isn't your pain. It is yourself.
Grasshopper: Master, how long does the Battle Balm® scent last?
Master: The aroma of Battle Balm® lasts about 20-30 minutes. After which the smell wanders off...taking your pain away with it.
Master: Young grasshopper, this is enough talk for today. Get back to your training!
