Bengay: Latinos LOVE bengay. It was developed in France by Dr. Jules Bengué (hence, thename). And introduced to America in 1898. It heals many of the dolorcitos Latinos suffer from. It is an analgesic heat rub that relieves swelling, soreness, muscles, and joint pain. It stinks like hell, but it works wonders. Feels hot, then cold, creating a warm, yet chilling effect. Giving one numbing sensations. Don't underestimate the power of Bengay.
