Review: The Honest Company: Organic Breathe Easy Rub

The Honest Company's Organic Breathe Easy Rub is the best way to clear a stuffy nose or congested chest without the unnecessary poisons most of us grew accustomed to as children. I have to admit, I was completely skeptical about this kinder, gentler version of the Vick's VapoRub most of us grew up using during cold and flu season. It was always the go-to chest, neck, and nose rub, and even though I have not used it in many, many years, I would probably buy it again had I not known better. But, thankfully, there is an organic version of just about everything, especially at The Honest Company.

This rub is not as strong as its chemical laden counterpart and, frankly, that is just fine by me. That other stuff always burned my nose and eyes. This organic version is gentler and gets the job done without the discomfort. Will it knock out a Stage-5 Mucus Blockade? Probably not. But after using a nettie pot, having some tea, and blowing my nose, a little of this goes a long way and helps keep my passages clear from then on. And most importantly, it's gentle enough for kids. This is definitely worth a try.
