I've tried this, but never got any real kick out of it. I know people who swear by it though. maybe I wasn't combining it with the right ingredients. :)

back in the day, it was tiger balm - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tiger_Balm - which, like the peppermint oil in burt's bees lip balm, also has menthol (and related compounds) in it - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mentha_%C3%97_piperita.
