Description

This is my 25th year making the Great Northern Cough & Chest Balm. And it is my best batch yet!!

Harvested locally and sustainably from Spruce and Pine trees, this healing chest rub utilizes the properties of the whole saps, not just the essential oils as found in mainstream commercial products. These natural Oleoresins contain a broad range of phytochemicals, (healing botanical chemicals), that are renowned for their healing effects on the respiratory system, muscles, joints and skin. Spruce, Pine and Fir, have been used as traditional medicine for hundreds if not thousands of years across a wide range of cultures in the northern hemisphere.

Great Northern Cough and Chest Rub is a penetrating yet pleasantly fragrant Balm that is absorbed through skin and breath. It helps break up and expel even stubborn phlegm, opens breathing passages and promotes a calm mind and sound sleep.

From an aromatherapeutic perspective it is grounding and uplifting. It is calming to the heart, mind and spirit. Not only does it help expel phlegm and ease breathing, but it also facilitates rest and sleep.

Originally formulated for children who would not tolerate the overpowering smell of mainstream “Vaporizers” and rubs, Great Northern Cough and Chest Rub is powerful, but not overwhelming. It works just as well on infants, adults and the elderly.

Here in Ontario, I have access to an abundance of these sap/oleoresin bearing trees. Many, I personally steward and care for. Stewardship in this context means, I take care of the trees, over the years and in some cases over decades, look to their well-being, nurture them and harvest from them. This creates a sustainable and ethical source for high-quality sap and some very rewarding relationships for me.

This is a product that has been honoured with the term- “Wizard Goo by children and adults for decades.

I have prepared this “Cough Balm” since my son was a toddler, 25 years ago. I have been so happy with its effectiveness, that beyond minor tweaks, I still use my original recipe.

PLEASE NOTE: We have changed the labels to accommodate US import policies.
Though the Labels now say “Great Northern C&CB” instead of the full product description, the tins contain the same great product.

If you would like to learn more about how this balm is prepared or would like to make your own chest rub, please see my post-https://apothecarysgarden.com/2020/03/18/how-to-use-pine-and-spruce-sap-for-respiratory-relief/

——————————-What customers have said about this product————————————

“Helped my family get through coughing much quicker than usual.”

“Absolutely love the rub. The scent is not overpowering, very soothing and gentle. Easy to use and actually works.”

“Stellar! Who needs Vicks Vapo Rub? I highly recommend stocking up for cold and flu season. This also works well in a humidifier. Dan’s items are the very highest quaity-on all levels.”

“This is the best chest rub there is. It has cured my ongoing pneumonia by letting me expel harden mucus from my lungs allowing them to heal. Whether you have viral or bacterial pneumonia, or even walking pneumonia…this is it. The key ingredient that other chest rubs do not have is turpentine (pine oleoresin) from pine trees. Turpentine has been used for a very long time for pneumonia until “Big Medicine” took over. Anyway, it takes a while to get it but is well worth the wait and the price paid. If you have any respiratory issues look no further. Great product and store. Thanks a million, Dan. :)”

“Si trabaja!!! La uso frecuentemente con mis nietos.”

    This product is wonderful. Allergy season is tough for me with my asthma but my nose gets blocked quite a bit too. Already just the slight test I did showed how helpful this product was. And the container is super cute. Will buy more in the future.

    I bought two of this balms, as they are handcrafted at place of its origin, and I feel safe buying it for my family from knowledgeable artisans. I opened one, and it has nice balance of invigorating and soothing fragrance. I’m sure this balm will help heal senses of my cov struck parents faster. Thank you 🙏

    This works. My son was struggling with thick mucus for months and we were both losing sleep. Second night using this stuff and he is sleeping with no mucus tying up his nose and throat and waking him up every second. Thank you so much for this wonderful product. I have referred it to a friend already.

    I would not think of going through the winter months without GNCC. It is such an effective product for cough and cold. Almost magical on my grandkids easing their cough/cold symptoms. Please don't ever stop making this beautiful healing stuff!
