A bit about Camphor…
Camphor is an age old traditional remedy our grandparents would attest to. Some might recall a little block of camphor being wrapped in fabric and pinned to their chest when they were suffering from a cold as children. This is because camphor has so many healing properties.
Camphor oil is an effective stimulant, which boosts the activity of the circulatory system, metabolism, digestion, secretion and excretion. It also has antiseptic, disinfectant, and germicidal properties, as well as carminative: It is very helpful in giving relief for gas trouble.
It is a very efficient antispasmodic and gives immediate relief from spasms and cramps. The cooling and penetrating effects of camphor oil make it an anti-inflammatory and sedative agent. It is very helpful in curing nearly all types of inflammation, both internal and external. It also relaxes the body and mind while giving a feeling of peace and freshness.
Most importantly, the strong, penetrating aroma of camphor oil is a powerful decongestant. It immediately relieves congestion of the bronchi, larynx, pharynx, nasal tracts and lungs.
The balm is rubbed on the chest, back, or under the feet to ease symptoms of colds, sinusitis and flu.

I was so so happy to find this - I hate using vicks on my son, as it contains formaldehyde and other nasties, but has been one of the only vapour rubs with camphor in it that works. I have even researched and spoken to other parents with the same worries who cannot find an alternative that works as well. Now there is one!! this stuff works like a bomb and isnt too mild or overwhelming, but perfectly soothing. Im telling all the parents I know about it!
