    This is a product no one in my family can live without. Anytime someone has sinus problems, cold, sore throat, ear ache, etc. - we grab "the green tin". Can't say that it "cures" the problem, but it usually takes the pain away immediately. Not something that you want to use just before going out, as the smell is kinda' strong; but really could not live without it. Also, be aware that when you use it near your eyes - they'll water.

    My dh used to laugh at me when our boys would tell me about some pain and I'd say to get "the green tin" - then he finally tried it and now he uses it and tells our boys to get "the green tin" 8^) Also, recommended it to a friend whose son has sinus problems and he loves it too.

    Good but burns skin

    It does clear stuffed nose and relieves coughs but I had bad burning sensation on my skin and had to wipe it off. I don't know if I will be able to use it...Read complete review

    It does clear stuffed nose and relieves coughs but I had bad burning sensation on my skin and had to wipe it off. I don't know if I will be able to use it on my kids because of it.

      I use this product as a chest rub, lip balm, and for arthritis pain in my hands, feet, shoulders, and hips. It works very well, smells great and contains almost all natural ingredients. It's a little geasy, as most balms are, but you just cover the area you are using it on! i love it!

        I ordered this product for my parents. They are both in their mid 70's. My father called me and sked me to order him 2 of them. They have used this product for a long time. A lot of people like using this product but, they just don't know where to purchase it locally. They called me to let me know that they had received the order. Thank you Shirley

            I have used this product since I was a little kid and the Watkins man came to our farm house to sell his wares. I use it for small cuts, insect bites, sore muscles and in my nose at night to keep it moist.

              I have been using this product since birth I believe. When I have a cold or congestion I put it on my chest and under my nose and it reminds me of when my Mom used to do it when I was little.

                After shower/bath apply to chest area cover with towel/heavy cloth can feel it begin to tingle and helps make me go to sleep (when I have an oncoming cold or cough). I like it better than Vick's product.

                      Mostly lip balm, but also for mosquito or spider bites, or other itching, low-grade burns, bruises, which prevents them from turning blue.

                        This product was recommended after I had back surgery by an elderly relative who has used it for years. It gave some relief that I did not expect. What really surprised me was when I used it for a terrible headache by rubbing some on my forehead. I had taken acetaminophen 3 different times with not relief. Within 20 minutes after putting some on my forehead, the headache was completely gone!
