Yep. Some advise placing a warm, moist pack or pad over it to enhance the action but I never do that as it works just fine as is. In the horse racing industry it's been used for ages on sprains, inflammations, etc. to get horses back on the track faster. It can even draw infection from wounds. It's pretty powerful on regrowing hair(African American women often use it to regrow damaged hair or gain length on their hair), skin, scales and hooves as well....I got to see that one on my birds here. Also got to see how it worked on an old, gimpy rooster...gave him relief that lasted a long, long time. It's thick and goopy but has no smell, taste or odor. I used it on plantar fasciitis recently and it worked quickly and lasted several days, I've used it on arthritis pain, neurological pain, herniated disc pain, etc. Don't let the medical community hear about us using it for pain...they'll revamp it, rejuvenate the patent and start charging an arm and a leg for it.
