CIAO is not worth the effort - Don't waste your time writing reviews

I suffer quite often from blocked sinuses and use various methods to help clear and ease breathing when things are bad. Sprays are fine for short term relief, tablets of any kind i only take when i really have to I have used Menthol Crystals in water but lately have found really difficult to find and buy

So found this product one day , I have found two ways to apply and use this one is to dab it onto a hankie or even a few drops on your clothes just under your chin.

Another way is to use it like the crystals, boil some water into a small cup or ramakin and drip a few drops in, after a few minutes the room seems to travel , it an be quite irritating to the eyes if you try to put it right under your nose and sniff or if you put too much drops in.

Its a good sized bottle so can be carried around and only requires a few drops to be effective.

Cheaper to buy a bottle of eucalyptus which your local chemist will make up for you.
