  1. Kristi (verified owner)

    Love that there is a safe alternative to the nasty Vicks we probably all grew up using. The smell is amazing, almost has a calming effect. Helps me sleep and breathe better overall. I first used it while sick and it helped a lot, along with the Cough-B-Gone & Elderberry Elixir. I was expecting this to be a small lip balm size and was pleasantly surprised that it is much larger! A little goes a long way and I like that it does not rub off easily but also doesn’t stain your clothing. Great product to keep on hand and a really great value!

  2. Elly (verified owner)

    I absolutely love breathe well! It got my baby through his first cold. He actually liked putting it on (6 months) and when he was fussy and upset, I would let him smell it, and it would calm him. It is so lovely! Definitely a must-buy if you have children or even to use on yourself for something soothing when you’re sick.

  3. Cynthia Bearden

    Love this stuff. Any time we have stuffy noses this makes it to where we can breathe again. Even use it if we think it could be coming on. I’ve used it for when the husband was sick and his breath smelled like snot so our whole room smelled but put this under my nose and didn’t have to deal with the smell. Works great and doesn’t burn my skin.

  4. Lisa (verified owner)

    I use this on my children, love the ingredients! I also love that it is a stick, so their hands don’t get sticky when applying. Can’t find another product out there like this, great find!

  5. Teri Moore (verified owner)

    This is the bomb! Healthy Vick’s replacement! Not only is it great for under the nose and on the chest when anyone is sick in the family, but my son even brought it to me when I was cleaning up diarrhea from our new puppy lol! It helped tremendously!

  6. Jessi Campbell (verified owner)

    I love using this product on my kids. It works better than anything else I’ve used and is obviously way cleaner than Vicks. My boyfriend and I use it when we’re congested also and its great. I have two in my house and one that travels with us in the diaper bag.

  7. Courtney (verified owner)

    This is a go to for each of my young children (they each have their own) when they have congestion, runny nose or a cough or all of the above. I so appreciate the ease of application and the clean ingredients. I always make sure to have a new one on hand for when one runs out.

  8. Ashlyn

    I really love all of my Earthley purchases, and this salve is no exception! It is a perfect alternative to Vicks that actually works. I used it on one of my children just last week in conjunction with the Cough-Be-Gone tincture when a persistent cough was keeping them awake, and within minutes, my child was peacefully sleeping and woke up with no cough. I highly recommend this product to get your family through the winter sickness season!

  9. Paige Richardson (verified owner)

    I love this like all of my other products I use this at first signs of a cold and it helps with breathing when congested

  10. Alexis (verified owner)

    It’s a great product but I do wish there was an option for a stronger scent for adults. The mild scent is great for small kids but my oldest child, my husband and I all don’t find it quite strong enough.

  11. Ashley Christmas (verified owner)

    Vicks who?

    This Breathe Well Salve stick is actually perfection. Clean, easy to apply and works!! My 2 year old even gets so excited to put it on her feet and chest (mommy’s too) when she’s not feeling great. We have 3 in our house and we’ll never not use it!

  12. Cheyenne powell (verified owner)

    Love this for my babies when they are stuffy! Makes me feel good knowing it’s clean ingredients.

  13. Suzanne Ghattas (verified owner)

    Smells super good. Melts right with your body temp and absorbs great!!

  14. Chaya

    Love this product. I put on my sons foot almost every night after starting preschool to keep his airways nice and clear.

  15. Katie Millar (verified owner)

    This stuff smells amazing! Great for helping to open up your sinuses.

  16. Jami (verified owner)

    We loved this product! I love the way it smells, strong enough to know you’re wearing it but not overwhelming. Also liked the way it’s package so we can apply it in the go without messy fingers. My daughter even enjoyed putting it on herself because of the easy application. Would be awesome if it contained a little more!

  17. Stacey Rogers

    I’m so thankful for this product! I always put it on my sons’ chests and feet when they’re sick.

  18. Ashley

    As a new mom sickness is terrifying. I knew when my daughter woke up sick I needed something on her chest and feet, but I knew I didn’t want to use Vicks. I should have had this on hand, but luckily my chiropractor carries Earthley products. This salve gave me such a peace of mind knowing I was putting natural ingredients on my babies skin. Within 2 days my daughter woke up sniffles free. I have since used this product a second time and I can say it is truly magical! I used it on myself and it works miracles! Thank you Earthley for making such a wonderful product!

  19. C W

    Love love love! We have used this as gifts too! It helps with headaches especially.

  20. Amberlee

    I was growing concerned about using Vicks baby rub on my children with colds but I wanted an alternative. I found this and have been using it ever since. I bring it with us on trips just in case. It helps soothes coughs and congestion and doesn’t have any of the nasty toxic ingredients of Vicks! And it’s a great price.
