Great for the whole family, I put a drop or 2 on pillows at night and it is calming when one of us has a stuffy nose. The kids like it too which is always good.

This gives me some relief from chronic sinusitis. Probably more useful for a general cold though

I first used this more years ago than I care to remember and was thrilled to discover it's still available. Not only is it a brilliant product for humans but it also works so well for my old cat who suffers occasionally from congestion in his nose. Just one drop on his bedding and he's breathing better :)

Absolutely love this product and wish I had found it years ago. Used to use a chest rub to clear blocked nose or sinus but this is so much more effective. I put three drops on my daughters night gown and she can breathe clearly through the night.

Customer rating:

The best product ever to help with breathing (blocked noses, sinuses, headaches etc). Put a few drops on a tissue and hold it slightly away from the nose and sniff it when needed - you will feel the effect immediately. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Have used it every night for many years.

I have used this for more than two decades. It is wonderful to help breathing when one's nose is blocked. I am never without it . My mother introduced it to me. Once one try's it there is nothing I know that can surpass it.

Customer: Raewyn   28 Mar 2012

Customer rating:

This is absolutely the best product ever for clearing the nose and allows you to breathe freely all night. I found this 30 years in the UK and have never been without it since. Simple to use and extremely effective. Safe for kids too - a couple of drops under the end of their pillow case (so it doesn't get on their face). Highly recommended.

Customer: Denise   09 Nov 2010

Customer rating:

This was recommended to me 6 years ago when i had a terrible cold and was really blocked up, this was amazing it cleared my sinuses and allowed me to be ablw to brethe through my nose! we are never without it now although its been hard to find. a few drops on your pillow at night helps for a better nights sleep when your blocked up. easy to tab a few drops on the kids pillow to instead of something they want to wipe off their face etc
