All the essential oils in our Throat and Chest Balm are natural decongestants, making this Balm exceptionally versatile. There is no need for hot water and towels, and no need to worry about pasting yourself with petrochemicals.
Eucalyptus is used by the Aborigines in Australia as a natural decongestant in 'blue-gum' leaf poultices. Tea Tree, Wintergreen and Peppermint are all well-known scented decongestants, with Tea Tree also having strong anti-bacterial properties.
Throat and Chest Balm is very easy to apply and works immediately to relieve congestion. Just rub a little between your palms and inhale. Alternatively, it can be applied directly to the throat and chest. If required, it can be made milder by mixing with a little of our Bee Balm.
Caution: Take care around the eyes and do not use on broken skin. Not recommended for use on children under the age of 1 year.
