Oil of Wintergreen Cure

An old remedy for muscle aches and pains, this is a member of the salicylate family (natural aspirin) that you can read more about here.  The active ingredient is methyl salicylate which can also be extracted from cherry birch.

Wintergreen oil is quite popular in massage parlors and in Aromatherapy. 

Applied topically Oil of Wintergreen acts as a counterirritant to allevient muscle and joint aches.  Why this works is unclear...perhaps it distracts from the pain, it improves circulation or it acts in a homeopathic matter (by letting your body focus on the vibration of your ailment by introducing a cure with a similar but more focused aspect of that vibration).
