Eagle Medicated Oil

68 posts in this topic Register to Ask a Question

There's a pharmacy at 152 Bui Vein that has Eagle oil that is imported from America. Those of you that are coming to Vietnam for Tet may want to save a little space in your luggage and pick it up here . It makes a great gift fot Tet and is 69K VND for a large bottle -vs- 45K VND (or less) for the Singaporean version. I paid $5 a bottle in America, so it's actually a little cheaper. That's assuming it's not fake of course!

I tried to convince my wife that she didn't need to bring it over. :bonk:

-moved to Vietnam regional forum

Sorry about the misplaced post.

All of the stores here have had the other kind that is made in Singapore. They sell authentic medicine at this shop, so I'm pretty sure it's real. May be kinda' hard to convince a native Viet that though.

I believe it. The stuff seems to be ingrained in the culture.

I'm handing bottles out at work this year. Tet seems like a good time to kiss a little a$$. :D

My wife uses the stuff it seem for everything. My eyes were red and swollen from pollen and she placed a drop in my eye. The stinging was so bad that I actually started yelling to stop. I asked her to never do that again. I had a cut this last time home that she cleaned and started to bring the bottle out to use and I got up and ran away and wouldn't come back until she put it away. She got me anyway when I was taking a nap.

I've seen it used for everything but food seasoning!! :jest:

For car sickness: under the nose.

For headaches: on the temples.

For fever: temples and earlobes.

For hangover: under the nose, on the brow.

For coughs, on the neck.

For aches and pains: on the spot

For fun: anywhere else you can think of! :jest:

Gawd, my house reeks of that stuff! :angry:

I agree with Mr. Saigon. I think it must be deeply ingrained in their culture. VN people seem to think that smelling like a bucket of cleaning solvent means you're antiseptic, and therefore repelling the little gremlins that are making you sick. Personally, I don't think aromatic oils are useful for anything other than clearing your sinuses and chasing small animals out of the room. :wacko:
