I swear, this has magical powers. I’ve used it with muscle aches and it’s worked where nothing else would. Placebo effect, perhaps, but it smells and feels SO good. My family has used this for years- the entire line of Olbas products, actually- the inhaler, cough syrup, etc. We started with the inhaler, which is small and portable. We’ve had several family members with various breathing issues who swear by it. It clears airways gently but immediately. I use it when I want a little lift, I swear it has restorative effects (just like the salve). I love the smell of it, too, all the Olbas formulas from Switzerland. The salve can be used for either pain relief or to help with breathing. Highly recommended.
