    I take it with me wherever I go and it never fails me.
    Easy to use, pleasant scent and effectively clears my nasal passages and keeps them moist all night long.

    old standby product

    I prefer Unkers salve but this will work and is a product that I remember from childhood that I liked.

      Comments about Mentholatum Ointment/Topical Analgesic/Aromatic Vapors, 3 oz:

      This stuff has so many wonderful uses! I use it on my lips every night to avoid chapped lips. I love the minty feel. It also helps moisturize skin anywhere, like dry, cracked hands or feet. I put it on small cuts, like paper cuts to help heal it fast overnight. This stuff is also great when you have a cold, it sooths the skin around your nose, and your nasal passages, helping you breathe, without an overpowering smell/vapor like Vick's Vaporub. My kids now love to use it too. I love Mentholatum!

        Comments about Mentholatum Ointment/Topical Analgesic/Aromatic Vapors, 3 oz:

        I have a 3 oz container I have been regularly using for 16 years solely for soothing my chapped lips. I also use it to smooth down my eyebrows. I know it's gross that I've been using the same jar for 16 years (only 2/3 way through!), but it remains just as effective as day 1! I also have eczema, and putting mentholatum on it feels so tingly and soothing, and then my skin doesn't feel as itchy for the rest of the day.

        I use this product on myself and my children when we have coughing and congestion due to a cold. I also use it at night on my lips as chapstick. My lips are never chapped! It also relieves minor muscle aches and pains;(I only use it for that at night because smells like menthol).

          This product has been around for years! My mother used it and I was born in the 1930s. When sinus problems start, placing a little on upper lip to inhale helps immensely. Placing some on face before showering helps same problem. My mother also put some on my chest, placed how towels over it to reliee chest congestion. Old remedies can be the best and least costly!

                  Comments about Mentholatum Ointment/Topical Analgesic/Aromatic Vapors, 3 oz:

                  I can honestly say this product has kept me from "drowning" by C-Pap at night! For all those with sleep apnea who have experienced their C-Pap machine shooting water into their nostrils, "drown" no more! Because the constant blowing of air dries out tender nasal cavities...and because I got tired of having water blown up my nose, I can run my C-pap "dry" if I apply a thin coating of Mentholatum to my nasal cavities before putting on my headgear. Keeps my nose from drying out AND I don't wake up being "waterboarded" by my C-pap! Don't forget to apply to lips while at it. Cannot remember the last time I had chapped lips!

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  I am very pleased with the prompt and reliable deliveries of my orders. Not to mention, my local drugstores have removed several of the health products I use from their inventory (apparently to make room for dime store/grocery merchandise). I am thrilled that drugstore.com makes available a complete line of products no longer available on the local level. Thanks Drugstore.com!

                    Grew up on this stuff - probably why it is still so comforting as an adult! Why can't I find this in the southeast? Drugstores only carry Vicks Vap-o-rub!
