Mentholatum ointment. My mom used to use this on us, when we had a chest cold. I do not know what made me read the label, but the words topical analgesic caught my eye. Wow, this means pain relief! So I tried it. It WORKS. I may not smell that great, but my pain was relieved.

I have used it on my knee at night before as well. Ben-Gay and Aspercreme did nothing to relieve the pain. Like you, one night I thought about how soothing it is to put it on your chest when you are congested. The warmth it sends into my knee really helps me sleep. Love that little green bottle!
