AC. You should def do some Youtube . "Shoein' and Shootin' , the breeze, that is"
According to my daughter who is a pharmacist (BA in science), liniments only work on the skin creating a tingly or heat, or cold effect, no liniments over the counter penetrate into muscles, none, doesn't exist. Yes this effect makes the muscles feel better however. Absorbine horse strength liniment active ingredient is menthol, with some enchincea & few other herbs thrown in, the rest is rubbing alcohol. So no worries even if osmosis did occur, there is nothing in it that would hurt you. I love using this stuff just as a nice wash, rinse for a sweaty horse as it makes my hands feel all tingly. It's good stuff.
