Harvested locally and sustainably from Spruce and Pine trees, this 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). 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.
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.
I have access to an abundance of these sap/oleoresin-bearing trees here in Ontario. Many I 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 enriching relationships for me.
This product has been honoured with the term- "Wizard Goo by children and adults for decades.
I have prepared this Great Northern Cough Balm" since my son was a toddler, 27 years ago. I have been so happy with its effectiveness, that beyond minor tweaks, I still use my original recipe.

Great for congestion issues without being camphor heavy.
Highly recommended for coughs
I first used this when recovering from Covid, the cough from which was going on and on. It certainly helped and decreased the violence of the coughing.
I'm currently using it on a cough which it is clearing up rapidly.
Always keep some around for as and when needed.
It has a really pleasant "Clean" smell, in my opinion.
I am 76 so presumably in the Elderly category mentioned above

I'm so happy put to find the chest rub even from pine trees. Not hot like other salves.

This is a collection of aromatic materials mentioned in the Old & New Testaments and in ancient Egyptian texts. I often get asked to translate biblical plant names and source the materials they mention. They are all here in this collection.
