This rub is comforting and effective for clearing stuffiness due to colds and flu. This Balm is great for both kids and infants. The types of eucalyptus it contains are appropriate even for babies. All Things Jill generally recommend topical application from 6 months of age and up. Under 6 months of age, they recommend that a parent/caregiver applies it to their own chest so that baby has the benefit of inhaling it while being held. This is a great alternative to chemical products with a similar purpose/scent.
