How does Unker's work?

Unker's Therapeutic Products use natural ingredients to provide relief from aches, pains, colds and coughs.

How does Unker’s work?

Pain Relief

Unker's is a topical analgesic, meaning it works by temporarily blocking pain signals from reaching your brain. This can help reduce the severity of pain caused by arthritis and joint pain, backache, muscle soreness and more. Unker's also contains menthol which is known to have a cooling effect on the skin and may provide additional relief from minor aches or pains.

Colds and Coughs

Unker’s contains camphor essential oil, a natural decongestant and cough suppressant. When applied topically on the chest, it can help relieve cough and cold systems for a good nights rest.


What are the uses and benefits of Unker’s?

Pain Relief

Unker's Therapeutic Products can provide relief from various types of pain, such as arthritis, joint pain, back pain, and muscle soreness. For pain relief, apply Unker’s Rub topically to the painful or sore areas.

Sports Recovery

Unker's Therapeutic Products can be used to help soothe sore muscles and promote faster recovery after physical activity, making it a popular choice among athletes and fitness enthusiasts. For sports recovery, apply Unker’s Spray for highly concentrated relief on sore muscles and joints.

Cold and Flu Relief

Unker's Therapeutic Products can provide relief from cold and flu symptoms, such as headaches, body aches, and congestion. For cough and congestion relief, apply Unker’s Rub to the chest and bottoms of the feet (and then put socks on) before bed. Our Unker's Spray is 100% natural essential oils, so you can put 10 drops in a vaporizer for an aromatherapeutic effect.

Relaxation Massage

Unker's Therapeutic Products can be used during massage to provide a relaxing and rejuvenating experience. Dilute several drops of Unker’s Spray into your massage oil for relaxation and pain relief.

Headaches and Migraines

Eucalyptus and Wintergreen have been studied for their effects on headaches and migraines. Apply a small amount of Unker's Roll-on to the temples and base of the neck. Be careful to not rub it your eyes. If you do not have the Roll-on applicator put a small amount of Unker's Spray on your finger tips, and rub it into the same areas. Wash your hands thoroughly after.

Arthritis Relief

Unker's Therapeutic Products can be used to provide relief from arthritis pain, making daily activities easier and more comfortable. Unker’s contains menthol, camphor, and eucalyptus, which are known for their anti-inflammatory effects. For arthritis relief, apply Unker’s Rub or Spray to inflamed joints.

It's important to note that while these products may provide temporary relief from the symptoms of inflammation, they are not intended to be used as a substitute for medical treatment. If you are experiencing chronic or severe inflammation, it's always best to consult with a healthcare professional for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment plan.
