Pinimenthol ® cold balm mild Inhalation
Parents do everything right with the Pinimenthol inhaler when they let their children from the age of 6 inhale. Because the pinimenthol inhaler is built in such a way that no hot water can leak out, even if the container tips over. It is also insulated from the outside and is easy to carry. A 5 cm long strip of Pinimenthol cold ointment (for adolescents aged 12 and over) or Pinimenthol cold balm mild is sufficient for the treatment. Important tip: When inhaling, always breathe in through your mouth and out through your nose, otherwise the hot steam can cause the nasal mucosa to swell.
Inhalation with essential oils
Eucalyptus and pine needle essential oils possess properties that can significantly reduce cold symptoms. Tough phlegm is loosened, making it easier to breathe deeply. Eucalyptus oil also has an anti-inflammatory effect. Essential oils spread particularly quickly in the air. When inhaled, the healing vapors quickly reach the respiratory tract.
Inhalation: The right remedy for every age
A combination of eucalyptus oil, pine needle oil and levomenthol improves cold symptoms in adolescents from the age of twelve and adults. The Pinimenthol cold ointment can be used both for inhaling and rubbing on the chest and upper back. This also applies to the Pinimenthol mild cold balm, which was developed for children from the age of six. The active ingredient menthol was not used here.
