    This is one of my “must have” Earthley products!! It has worked wonders on my whole family. Works so much better and ingredient friendly than the Vicks I grew up on. On top of that, it smells amazing too.

  2. Jordan Long

    This is perfect for my kids before bed! We like to use it on the bottoms of our feet at night & my daughter likes to smell it when she first wakes up!

  3. Nevada

    I use this almost daily! I have a cat that i am allergic to, and this is a lifesaver!

  4. Felecia Bordayo (verified owner)

    I used this for my son when he got sick at 6 months old; it helped him to breathe better at night when his nose was stuffy. I am planning on buying more soon (it’s actually in my cart at the moment lol) and would definitely recommend!

  5. esaade (verified owner)

    Easy to apply and smells so good. This is way better than vapor rub

  6. Leilani

    I absolutely love all of Earthley’s products. Our line-up of remedies will soon consist of only Earthley products. The Breathe Well salve is soothing to our two kiddos when they are stuffy. We just rub a small amount on their chests and neck and they both have fallen asleep quickly as it is soothing to their little airways! I love that it works, and is non toxic! Thank you for such great products!!

    I’ve had issues with my lungs since I was a child due to a variety of reasons and I grab with when I’m having some
    Issues breathing, it works fantastically and it smells really good. My dad uses it too to help with his COPD.

  8. HLG (verified owner)

    The salve worked wonders for my asthma prone kiddo this past winter. I applied it to his chest and the bottom of his feet and his airways would generally improve when used consistently. Only complaints are it is oily and tends to stain his socks and shirt and it only comes in a small stick! I would love to see this product in a 2 oz tub!

    Breathe Well Salve works well to help open sinus passages and lungs. It’s effective but gentle. Too many products are very harsh and feel like they try to blast open clogged sinuses. This product does not do that. Another product I always keep on hand.

  10. Laura (verified owner)

    This was one of the first products I ordered from Earthley. My now 4 year old son seems to struggle a lot with congestion in the winter, so this became a nightly routine to put on the salve before bed. My 2 year old had RSV at 2 months old and he also struggles with congestion in the winter. So breathe well salve has been a huge help to us as each winter rolls around. Let’s be honest, I’ve used it on myself and my husband too and it’s amazing how quickly it can clear our noses so we can actually breathe! I love this product and will be sure I always have some on hand every November-April!

  11. Amanda Ramos

    This product smells amazing and works so well. I use it every night before bed because I get very congested throughout the night especially during allergy season. I’m obsessed with this product. Use it on my 3.5 yr old as well when she needs it and works well for her also.

  12. Elia barradas (verified owner)

    I used for my husbands and 9month old when they got the sniffles, it worked pretty good in clearing up the congestion. It helped my son breathe better through his nose.

  13. Amanda Simpson (verified owner)

    Must need for any colds! This stuff is a lifesaver for my family! Especially for breathing relief for my 3 year old, this is wonderful to help him sleep and actually breathe at night. We will never go without this staple.

  14. Michele Lieb

    My husband eats the S.A.D. and is congested often. He loves his Vick’s and other meds. But I convinced him to stick with Earthley for a while. This Breathe Well Salve was his saving grace! He loved it! He’s already made sure we have it on hand bc he knows he will be getting his usual colds again soon!

  15. Coastie Jana (verified owner)

    Another super hero in the cough and cold world. We used this rub a lot back in March when our entire household was sick. It is very pleasant and you can feel it working immediately. Husband approved!

  16. Tara (verified owner)

    Love this stuff!! I love the smell, but mostly I love how it is gentle and has helped me when my chest has been hurting me.

  17. Jennifer Deane (verified owner)

    The smell is delightful & it did help my 1 YO with her cough, however I don’t think it worked as well as Maty’s, which we previously used. I think this is a great alternative for those younger children & babies until it’s safe to use other EOs.

  18. Adu (verified owner)

    Okay I don’t ever leave review for products but… OMG I have to leave one for this. My hubby and little one had a cold and was coughing up a storm at night. I took the stick and rub it on my little one and instantly he stopped coughing. Then my hubby was coughing too so I hand him the stick and instantly he stopped coughing too! Usually he is a none believer of ’natural herbs’ but in the morning he asked what did you gave me cause it worked! Lol. I am excited to for my other products from Earthley! I’m hooked now!

  19. Jessie Leavitt (verified owner)

    This salve is amazing. I opened the package, took off the lid and immediately felt my sinuses begin to clear. It works great for keeping stuffy noses clear over night. Great product.

  20. nperez0627 (verified owner)

    This stuff is amazing! While my son had a cold, I rubbed a bit on the bottom of his feet (sometimes a little on his back too) whenever he’d have a coughing fit and within minutes his cough was gone and his congestion was cleared up. I also love the light scent and the mess-free, easy to use tube.
