I find it weird that alot of ah peks I know got this v bad habit of stuffing the bottle up their nostrils, and take deep breathes to inhale the vapor.

My father last time lagi better, he turn the bottle upside-down when he does that, so he practically pours the oil down his nose.

V shiok meh? I tried once only to choke on the pungent vapor.

Is this dangerous for their health?

I also have this habbit during my childhood,
drip and applied on all around my head when I have headache,
on my limps when having leg pain,
basically is all around my body lah.. :wahaha:
But have quitted this bad habbit liao,
cos this will make myself stink like #@%$&^*!!!.. :sweat:

Have also saw a camp mate during NS time smoke and apply medicated oil at the same time (he used the powerful red bottled Thailand medicated oil), think he wanted to increase the feeling of menthol.. :ahmcio:

When I was younger I had very bad cases with sighness (still do, but I changed methods), and the older generation introduce all this methods for block nose.. which includes sniffing these stuffs.

It actually works for some reason, although I have no idea how. Probably because the chemical numb the nostril muscles, so the nostrils relax and air can go in thus the mucus can flow out easy. But it just seems to clear after a while. And the worse the block nose, stronger oil needed.

And they also use these medicated oil for bad stomach (which I can understand), as well as headaches. Usually apply to the temples and the two acu-points under the chin (which personally I find extremely effective). They use this to keep themselves awake as well.

Btw for the bad stomach, when you rub the oil in your stomach it retains heat. That's why people also use it when they cold, like in the tour buses or mrt etc.

I've never heard of dabbing it on the lips though, and it probably taste bitter and "sting".

Im not exactly sure what its made of really. Just very strong odour, probably extract of spices. In that case it shouldn't affect the body in anyway, just mild drug-reliance (addiction) like caffine. So like you feel sleepy when you don't have it, and when you think you "need" it, like you feel colder in buses when you miss your medicated oil because your body is too used to having it, and physcologically you are dependent on it as well.

And I laughed when reading the title as well =D
