I was suffering from an acute upper respiratory infection and I could find no relief from the deep and persistent cough. I applied the Golden Breath Essential Care Oil directly to my chest and it worked almost instantly. I was able to sleep through the night and the vapors from the salve even cleared up my sinuses. In the morning, there was a noticeable lessening of respiratory congestion. I am thrilled to have a natural option for congestion relief that works so well, so quickly!
