Nutmeg Oil (50% w/w), Menthol (16% w/w).
Pharmacology: Pharmacodynamics: Menthol in concentrations of less than 1% depresses cutaneous receptors and exerts an analgesic effect. When menthol is applied to the skin, it stimulates the nerves for the perception of cold, while depressing those that perceive pain. Topical application of counterirritant concentrations of menthol initially produces a feeling of coolness that is soon followed by a sensation of warmth. Menthol is a non-invasive treatment for the relief of mild pain.
Nutmeg Oil is readily absorbed through the skin and is applied in liniments and ointments form for the relief of pain in lumbago, sciatica and rheumatic conditions.
