You feel young and your interests are pretty much the same as millennials – week-long travel, road trips, foodie adventures, long nights, and the like. But you realize that you are middle-aged already when your energy is no longer as it used to. Moreover, your body tends to ache after some action. You also realize that you are a tita when you already need Pau Liniment for pasma and other aches and pains.
Pau Liniment for Pasma and Other Aches and Pains
I did some gardening for 30 minutes. It involved watering the plants using the hose, removing dried leaves, and moving around some pots. Afterwards, my left knee and my back were already screaming obscenities at me for what I made them do.
Even though it’s hot, you cannot immediately cool off in the shower because you might end up with frozen muscles. First, you have to apply Pau Liniment for pasma and to loosen the sore muscles. What a nice way to cool off. After relaxing for a few minutes is the only time to take a bath.
Pau Liniment is unlike any other because of its special ingredient called the PSICAPMO extract. It is a potent blend of the purest herbs gathered and harvested from deep in the Western and Eastern forests.
That is why there is a unique feel and scent to Pau Liniment. And that is also why, if you don’t shake the bottle, you will see brown liquid that separates itself from the oil. That’s the PSICAMO extract.
I have first used this product when I was still in college more than 20 years ago. The product is still pretty much the same over the years—same smell and feel.
What is Pasma?
Pasma is like a general term for malaise in Filipino. It may as well refer to a “folk illness” in the countryside that is usually just described as a feeling of unwell. The description of this condition is uniquely Filipino. It is believed that pasma happens when the body is exposed to “cold” or water in any form. For example, taking a cold water bath right after physical exertion or drinking ice-cold water after a heavy meal. These “cold” stuff are believed to facilitate the unhealthy coldness that enters the body, thereby causing pasma.
Pau Liniment Benefits
Pau Liniment for pasma is the most common use for this topical oil, but it also has other benefits:
Pain reliever (joint pains, rheumatism, low back pain, arthritis, stiff neck, minor sprains, headache)
- For stomachache
- For massage
- Muscle relaxant
- For insect bites
- Calming and soothing (stress reliever)
Shake the Pau Liniment bottle well before use so that the herbal extracts will mix with the oils.
About Pau Liniment
Pau Liniment has been in the market for decades. I remember using it when I was still working as a trainee for a media company.
It is a very potent topical botanical oil that is uniquely and carefully blended and is proudly made in Bacolod City, Negros Occidental.
It contains four powerful ingredients, namely:
- Methyl salicylate
- Psicapmo extract
About the Psicapmo Extract
The Psicapmo extract is a fusion of 8 special herbs and ingredients, which include the lapacho extract from the Pau d’ Arco tree. The Pau d’ Arco herb is imported from Western and Eastern countries where this tree fluorishes. Combined with the other 7 herbs, the mixture can decrease swelling and control pain.
Additionally, the Pau Liniment exudes a calming and soothing aroma described as a warm, woody, yet citrus scent. The scent of camphor and menthol acts as a relaxant and a form of aromatherapy. Inhaling the liniment during application has a calming effect indeed. This is extremely helpful for our present time when we constantly worry about the Covid-19 outbreak and its threat to our family. At the end of the day, we need to relax our minds and soothe our muscles.
When applied, we instantly feel a soothing cool sensation that can last for up to 15 minutes. It is then followed by a deeper, penetrating warmth that extends beyond 2 hours.
It is the methyl salicylate and menthol combined that delivers the sensation of heat and coolness on the skin and muscles. These two ingredients sort of superficially “confuse” the nerves in order to mask the pain.
Pau Liniment, on the other hands, gives something more. The combination of herbs, such as Pau d’ Arco, contain several phytochemicals that penetrate the superficial layer of the skin. These penetrate to reach the deeper layers, such as painful muscles, irritated nerves, and swollen joints.
As a result of their anti-inflammatory effect, the body gets help in controlling the swelling and irritation that are the most common sources of pain. If we can control pain without taking medicines, why not?
Walang “Aww!!” Sa Pau.
Pau Liniment is widely available in pharmacies, supermarkets, and convenience stores nationwide.
