Yaa Mong Keeow


Recommended Posts

Not sure if this should be in Language or the Health forum so I put it in General.

Had a local lady give me a massage a while back and she used a balm on my shoulder that she called 'yaa mong keeow'

ยาหม่องเขียว Basically means 'green balm'.

I told her I liked the smell so she left it with me in an un-labled container, she probably buys it in bulk and decants it as needed.

Eventually I ran out of the stuff so next time I was passing the chinese 'raan kai yaa' I bought a couple of jars.

Translating the label at home I discovered the main ingredient is 20 grams of เสลดพังพอนตัวเมีย which according to my dictionary means the phlegm of a female mongoose.

Sounds gross but it works.

I just wonder how angry you have make a female mongoose before she spits in a jar for you.:bah:
