About the ingredients:
Eucalyptus Essential Oil: Eucalyptus oil may be helpful in relieving sinus congestion and also in chest congestion. The active ingredient in eucalyptus oil called eucalyptol helps to control coughs by reducing inflammation and clearing congestion from the airway. Eucalyptus essential oil functions as an expectorant, helping to cleanse the body of toxins which can be helpful in relieving cold symptoms.
Peppermint Essential Oil: Peppermint essential oil contains menthol which helps to relieve respiratory and nasal congestion, sinus trouble as well as the common cold and cough. It is a powerful expectorant and decongestant which helps to clear congestion and inflammation from the respiratory tract.
Rosemary Essential Oil: Rosemary essential oil helps to relieve congestion, cough, colds and flu symptoms. It has antispasmodic properties which help to relax the airway passages. Rosemary is also a natural antiseptic which is helpful for respiratory infections.
Copaiba Balsam Essential Oil: Copaiba balsam has been used by tribal medicine men in Brazil to treat chronic bronchitis as well as coughs and colds. It is a powerful decongestant, anti inflammatory and expectorant helping to relieve coughs and congestion due to colds.
Fir Needle Essential Oil: Fir needle essential oil is helpful for treating colds, coughs and joint pains. This oil also purifies the air helping to provide an infection free atmosphere.
Pine Needle Essential Oil: Pine needle essential oil helps to ease headaches by reducing toxins in the air. It is a natural decongestant and expectorant (it helps to loosen and then eliminate phlegm). By reducing the amount of phlegm in the respiratory tract, pine allows the body to fight off the infection faster which may reduce recovery time.
Lavender: Lavender has antispasmodic effects which help to relax the airways. It can help alleviate respiratory problems like cold and flu, cough, bronchitis and sinus infections.
Calendula: Calendula is a strong skin moisturizer and is known to stimulate physiological regeneration and skin healing.

This herb has a high amount of flavonoids, which can help reduce inflammation and thereby speed up the stages of healing.
