Originating in Singapore over 90 years ago, Axe Brand Universal Oil is used for mild relief of headaches, nasal congestion, insect bites, rheumatic pain, and muscular aches.
Legend says Axe Brand founder Leung Yun Chee got the Universal Oil recipe from a German physician called Dr. Schmeidler in 1928. Leung adopted the ax as his company logo, perhaps as a sign of strength and power. The company is now run by Leung's two sons, Leong Heng Keng and Leong Mun Sum.
For aches, pains, and insect bites, apply a few drops to the affected area and massage gently. For nasal congestion, put a few drops in a towel or handkerchief, hold to your nose, and inhale deeply.
