Axe Brand Universal OilHot
Axe Brand Universal Oil (also known as Axe Brand Medicated Oil in some countries) is made from a unique formula and has been used throughout the world for nearly 60 years. It is pure in colour, pleasant in odour. It is mild yet suitable for use by both adults and children for relief of giddiness, headaches, travel sickness, stomach-ache, insect bites, rheumatic pain, muscular pain, blocked nose and cold.
It retains a proud permanent spot in my father's car to ease anyone from car sickness. The small, travel-friendly magical ointment bottle makes it so convenient to bring around. I personally hate the smell of ointments but the aroma of Axe Brand Universal Oil is very pleasant. Perhaps it's because I grew up using it.
Whenever I go abroad to visit my friends, I will always purchase some Axe Brand Universal Oil bottles and give it to them. Of course, I highly recommend this product.
Now, most of the time I use it for my girl. Just a drop on a hanky and “bye bye clogged nose” for her. This is really a must in my handbag during travel and in my medicine cabinet at home. After all, you’ll never know when you’ll need it.
It is universal indeed in the sense that aside from it has been widely used by people from all ages, it has also been used by people from different parts of the globe. In fact, a lot of products came out with almost the same smell and effect. That only proves of Axe Brand’s efficacy and success.
that you can never forget, and I have not come across any other medicated oil that smells like it.
Personally I do not quite like the smell but I must say it works pretty well in relieving the itch from insect bites. I always have the fear of accidentally rubbing my eyes with my fingers whenever I have come into contact with Axe Oil.
I was surprised to hear from some friends that their relatives who come to Singapore on holiday have been tasked to buy Axe Oil back for their families! Looks like it is really that iconic!
Sometimes when I have several mosquito bites on my leg I just pour it over my entire leg; if that part isn't itchy it doesn't matter for it has a cooling effect too. It also has a smell which I personally like. There is another medicated oil which smells better than this, but I think that is more effective on stomachaches. And universal is as true as it can get, because all of my friends use it too. I believe this will always be my number one medicated oil!
I remember once when my silly grandpa used this medicated oil for the silliest reason.There I was innocently answering my mother's phone call (I was 12 years old) whilst rubbing my itchy eye when my silly grandfather pressed a hand towel with Axe Oil onto my EYE!
I immediately screamed and dropped the phone with my mom panicking over what had happened over the other end. My poor grandfather just stood there dazed with the towel in his hand and staring blankly at me. My eye hurt and I started jumping everywhere till the burn died down. Though it was a shock to me at one point, it was really funny afterwards. My parents and uncle laughed at hearing what my grandfather had done. It was hilarious, the way it had happened. It hurt at that point, but I couldn't get angry with my grandfather since he was sincerely concerned over getting rid of the itch in my eye.
Now this is what Axe Oil means to my family - one stop solution for all pain and itch and whatever else I do not know of.
If I could ever show how grateful I am to the creators of this 'miracle water'. This is a one-stop relieve for whatever ailments i usually get. Stomach pains, rashes, headaches, body aches and so much more. The axe brand oil never fails to offer relief to me. Sometimes I even wonder what would I do without it.
However, the same axe oil ( which I call it ) has not helped in various situations. Whenever i try to give my mother an excuse like I'm having stomach pains to escape school, axe oil has to come into the picture. My mother always hands me the bottle in my hand and sends me off to school. Nevertheless, the importance of this oil cannot be more elaborated
Although it may be an object that is often overlooked, neglected and even belittled for it's actual abilities in our daily lives, I have learnt that I should not ever again underestimate the Axe Brand Universal oil.
More commonly known as "Feng You" - the oil almost instantaneously soothes headaches and stomach discomfort, and it even ceases sore and itching bites from various insects while it functions as an insect repellent. At least for me, it has been a handy companion throughout my years of childhood.
"Universal" oil - what an aptly put name. Though it might not be as widely-known as what "Universal" implies - I'm certain that most of the general public in Singapore must have some recognition for this product.
Then there's the nostalgic smell where I get taken back to my childhood days where my grannies n aunts would use this old to relieve their aches and pains. I can certainly foresee myself being the same when I'm that old!
I've tried to smear on some when I have the occasional headaches but it never works, in fact the throbbing pain I feel intensifies (probably because of the smell). There are a lot more alternatives for me like drinking hot tea or lying in bed in a dark room that would help my headaches, but not this ointment.
The one thing I can give them credit for is how affordable it is, and for people who doesn't mind the smell and can attest to it's quality, it's well worth it.
