>Gears and Wears>Best liquid heat?
Interval Junkie --Nobby
Looking for some liquid heat to increase blood flow in my Achilles. This is not my primary way to do so, but a low-effort supplement to what I'm already doing would probably be worth the $10 or whatever.
In priority order:
- doesn't stain
- doesn't stink
- doesn't melt my skin
Anyone have something they like? I've only tried "Tiger Balm" - which fails on the stain and stink. The heat is "meh".

Hot water bath?
Dave's Gourmet makes some good stuff.
Heh. Yeah, I think that fails the "doesn't melt my skin" requirement because last time I tried a bit of that I couldn't use my tongue for a few days.
Not quite the same situation but ... I threw my back out two weeks ago and tried a few things including motrin, aleve, percocet, heating pad, ice packs, and tiger balm but the two things that gave me the most relief were hot showers and bengay "cold therapy."
Again, another product you weren't asking about, but this sure helped my unrelated problem.
