An amazingly effective product. When my eldest son was 18 months (in 1968) old he had a severe bout of croup. A very young doctor was called out and told my wife the child needed to go into hospital immediately. My wife (even younger than the doc) burst into a flood of tears, causing the young doc to change his diagnosis to steaming the boy with Friars Balsam. Worked like a charm, that time an every other time needed. Im recomending it to a friend whos struggling to recover from whooping cough.

I cant use the decongestants sold due to having high blood pressure. Friars Balsam is cheaper and works brilliantly but I couldnt get it at the chemists, pleased Ive found it online.
