TJz Balm™ Organic Night-time Topical Pain Relief Balm & Jaw MoisturizerBuy Now
Until now, OTC topical pain relief drugs have contained ingredients that are too harsh to put on the delicate skin around the jaw, neck and behind the ears. TJz™ has discovered a way to create an effective topical pain relief balm with cosmetic properties to soften and soothe sensitive areas around muscles and joints. The hands-free massaging applicator helps to relax the muscles and joints and deepens the pain relief effect. Our organic lavender may help you get more ZZZ’s! Learn more on our How To Use page.

An OTC, also known as an over-the-counter medicine, is a nonprescription drug that you can buy without a prescription. OTCs are safe and effective when you follow the directions on the label and as directed by your health care professional. In the U.S., the manufacture and sale of OTC substances are regulated by the Food and Drug Administration.
Our formula is made with organic jojoba seed oil, known at nature’s best moisturizer. Jojoba seed oil is similar to human skin oils. Its use can trick the skin into thinking it has produced enough oil and thus balances oil production, without promoting acne or other skin problems. Jojoba seed oil is an antimicrobial, helping to prevent the growth of bacteria on the skin.

Natural USP Menthol (2.4%)
TJz Balm™, like other topical pain relief medications, is thought to work due to the “Pain Gate Theory”. You feel pain when nerve receptors send a signal from the point of pain to the spinal cord and then to the brain. The cold sensation “counter irritant” caused by the menthol blocks the nerves that signal pain, so you feel a cooling sensation instead.
Our formula creates hot, cold and tingling sensations when applied to the skin, which inhibits pain transmission from the sensory nerves. It also contains a natural form (wintergreen leaf oil) of salicylic acid, an anti-inflammatory medication, which penetrates the tissues beneath the skin and reduces swelling at the pain site.
No, do not mix topical pain relief products with heat. This can cause the formula to be absorbed into the bloodstream too rapidly.
TJz Balm™ was invented in 2018 and brough to market in 2020 by a mom-son duo, nutritional biochemist from Cornell University and an engineer from Columbia University, whose family suffered from joint and muscle pain, particularly around the jaw, in an area called the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). Waking up in the middle of the night with jaw clenched and teeth grinding, they created a natural topical pain relief product that works.

The joints on the two sides of the jaw are called temporomandibular joints or TMJs. TMJ pain is related to pain in the TMJ joints and also related to tight muscles surrounding the TMJ joints. TJz Balm is a topical pain relief medication for joints and muscles that was formulated to be effective, yet beneficial for the delicate area around the jaw, neck & behind the ears.
TMJ disorder develops from problems with the fit between the upper and lower teeth, the jaw joint, and the muscles in the face that control chewing and moving the jaw. The improper functioning of these jaw muscles and joints causes TMJ jaw pain and other symptoms when opening and closing the mouth or chewing.
Bruxism is a different condition than TMJ disorder that can also have a negative effect on the proper functioning of the jaw and cause jaw problems. Those who suffer from bruxism grind their teeth and clench their jaw usually at night, and often during stressful times. Many are unaware that they do this. When left untreated, it can lead to jaw pain, worn-down tooth enamel and chipped teeth. Bruxism can also cause TMJ headaches and TMJ earaches. TMJ disorder can cause bruxism or vice versa. Bruxism can cause or even worsen TMJ disorder. Dentists recommend wearing a night guard to protect the teeth. However, night guards do not address the jaw pain or underlying conditions.
Yes, TJz Balm™ offers topical pain relief to the muscles and joints, while wearing a night guard / mouth guard protects the teeth.
