What's the benefit of rubbing it into your shins?

What does it do then and how?

I always thought it was just for the muscles, to help warm them up.

I ran out of red stuff ages ago :headache:

I imagine it would have anti inflamitory purposes.
Applying balms to the muscles like red heat etc. doesn't actually warm the muscles. It brings blood to the surface of the skin as your skin has a slight reaction to the chemicals. You can only warm muscles through activity.
