Abstract

Topical traditional Chinese medicine is still widely used, especially by those of Chinese descent in Singapore.This practice is likely to be similar wherever there is a sizable Chinese community. In this article I discuss the types of topical traditional Chinese medicine available in Singapore-emphasizing particularly the ingredients used in the making of them-in an attempt to dispel some myths and misconceptions about traditional oils and balms.
