A Chinese herbalist brought this ancient formula to the United States several years ago. It’s origin dates back more than a thousand years to the era of the Tong Dynasty.
The formula includes the volatile oils of wintergreen, menthol and camphor, all mixed into a base of safflower oil. Together these oils smell wonderful and are able to penetrate deep into the skin when applied.
Tei Fu Oil is used to soothe aching muscles and stiff joints. Applied to the temples and back of the neck, it often relieves headaches, too. However, the oil must not be near the eyes or they may be irritated by the strong fragrance.

For congestion or just to enjoy aroma in the air, place a few drops of the oil in a small pan with water. The hotter the water, the more these oils evaporate into the air, acting as a disinfectant, deodorizer, and mood enhancer. Western culture has not appreciated the full psychological power of natural plant essences when dealing with disease, whether emotional or physical. Read more about essential oils.
Tei Fu oil is not internally toxic in very small amounts, and some have taken two or three drops in a glass of water and sipped it for a sore throat or to settle the stomach. It is too strong to take more than that.
Both as an oil and lotion, the Tei Fu formula is antiseptic for surface sores, infections and helps to break up toxic or mineral deposits near the skin’s surface.
Tei Fu Massage Lotion provides all of the benefits of Tei Fu Essential Oils but in a creamy lotion form. It’s especially designed for broad skin application. The skin-tingling formula penetrates deeply to encourage relaxation of the muscles. It also leaves the skin smooth and supple. Containing essential oils of menthol, wintergreen, camphor and eucalyptus, it is now packaged in a tube for easy application and improved stability.
