This wonderful massage oil (pronounced "ooh-eee") is used for stiff, sore, overexerted muscles and joints that are worse with the cold and dampness. This oil is also great to massage into cold muscles before exercise to help them warm up and to prepare them for stretching and activity.
U-I Oil contains the light, warming aromatic oils cinnamon, peppermint, and lilac, and the tree resin "xue jie" also known as "dragon's blood" (a resin known for its ability to dispel congealing blood and relieve pain). The main ingredient is the warming herb "ai ye" or mugwort (folium artimisae). Mugwort's properties penetrate obstruction, activate local circulation and drive out cold. It is also useful for clearing out stagnation after cupping.
