Stuffy noses are no fun! An all natural vapor rub can open the breathing passages, soothe the tissues, and bring relief to otherwise uncomfortable situations. The first time I had a stuffy nose after moving far away from my mom was a turning point in my life. Being away from mom was sad enough, but not being close enough to her so she could wipe some vapor rub on my chest and nose, wipe her hands on a tissue, hand me the tissue to sniff, then kiss me on the cheek was the impetus for the formulation of my Breathe Easy Vapor Rub. Of course, this was many years ago, yet I still make the balm and think of her when I use it. It really helps! As an added bonus, the vapor rub can be used on the feet to combat athlete’s foot fungus.
