How soon will I feel results?
Our Liniment is a thin liquid and it spreads easily over the skin. You will feel an instantaneous warming, cooling, and tingling sensation as our liniment penetrates the skin. This is followed quickly by an overwhelming and lasting sense of calm in the affected area. If used on a daily basis, you will notice a remarkable, sustainable difference.
Our Muscle Balm is a thicker product with beeswax in the base, which makes it easy to massage into muscles and joints. Like the liniment, you’ll feel a sensation of warmth, coolness, and/or tingling, and the soothing experience is almost immediate. With both the liniment and balm, we encourage you to “work it in” to the area that’s been bothering you.
Our bath Soak provides whole-body relief. After sinking into the bath, you will feel tingling and relief. Because it’s meant to cover all parts of you, we designed it to have a milder skin sensation than the products above. As you soak, your muscles will feel soothed and relaxed.
How long will relief last after application of the Liniment or Muscle Balm?
The answer will vary based on location, type and extent of pain or injury. The results typically last a minimum 30 minutes and a maximum of 24 hours for a single application. After repeated use, some discover that the agony never comes back.
Is it safe to use every day?
Do not apply more than 2x a day without consulting your doctor. If used as directed with the smallest amount needed, you may use for as long as necessary. Most feel the benefits quickly and are able to transition use to every other day or every third day.
Can I use TAOG with prescription drugs or other topical products?
There are not any contraindications that we are aware of, but you should always consult your doctor. The herbs and essential oils in our products have not been studied as it relates to potential interactions with drugs.
One of the ingredients is St. John's Wort. I've heard people who are on antidepressants should not take St. John's Wort. Should I not use TAOG?
In an entire bottle of our liniment, there is less than a typical single day's ingested dose of St. John's Wort. While topical application of St. John's Wort has not been studied specifically as to an interaction with SSRIs/SNRIs, we feel confident that when used as directed, it is extremely unlikely that the amount of the herb entering your bloodstream when applied to the skin would be enough to warrant any concern. If you still feel uncertain, we recommend speaking with your doctor.
Is the liniment gluten-free? Wouldn't the grain alcohol have gluten in it?
Our grain alcohol is made from corn mash so there is no gluten. And according to the National Celiac Association, distilled alcohol, even if it is made from a gluten-containing grain, such as wheat, rye or barley, is considered gluten-free. This is because if an alcohol is distilled, proteins from the starting materials that provided the starch or sugar are removed in the distillation process. No protein carries over into the end product (the alcohol).
Will I need to use forever?
Once you are satisfied with your results, you may discontinue use or use less frequently to maintain results.
Can children use these products?
Children under the age of 12 should not use.
Do these products expire?
If stored correctly, TAOG products should last a minimum of 3 years.
How should I store these products?
Please store in a cool, dark place away from direct sunlight.
Why is the scent so strong?
Our products are 100% natural and contain a wide variety of botanical ingredients - leaves, herbs, sticks, roots. There are more than 30 ingredients packed into the 1 oz bottle of Liniment. We’re committed to not using unnecessary fragrances to cover up the scent. We don’t want to displace the good ingredients with any unnecessary ingredients.
How long does the scent of the liniment last?
It goes on strong, but the scent typically dissipates within 15 minutes.
I don’t mind the scent on my body, but I do not like the scent lingering on my hands. Any suggestions?
You should always wash your hands after applying our liniment and muscle balm. If necessary, you can apply our liniment or muscle balm with a glove. You may also pour the liniment into a roller bottle and apply directly to the skin.
Does the balm focus on healing as much as the liniment?
Balm is a less concentrated formula. You can use as needed throughout the day.
How long will a 1 oz. bottle of the liniment last?
If used as directed 1-2 times a day, the 1 oz. will last a month.
What does TAOG stand for or mean?
Some say our products are the Greatest Of All Time. As a nod to our reputation, we named our company TAOG.
