Thera Wise Natural Decongestant Rub .. safe for pregnancy, baby & children.
Many over the counter vapor rubs contain petroleum along with other nasty chemicals (and some ingredients you can't even pronounce). Soothe away the aches and pains of congestion with all natural, plant based formulas that are paraben and petroleum-free (and safe for the whole family). Then you can really sigh with relief (and breathe through our noses to do it!).
Thera Wise Natural Decongestant Rub is a natural alternative to petroleum-based synthetic decongestant rubs. Petroleum based topicals are generally incompatible with human skin. Although they provide excellent barrier properties, they fail to allow the necessary respiration of the skin tissue that is required for healthy functioning and repair. As well, Petroleum tends to strip the skin of it's natural occurring oils that are vital in the protection and balance of skin tissue. Try rubbing in Thera Wise Vapo Rub made from botanical extracts to help your healing process from within. This soothing formula doesn’t make your nose burn when smelling it, and it doesn’t leave you with sticky skin (so you can leave the house after applying!).
Thera Wise natural decongestant rub is made with therapeutic plant oils such as peppermint, eucalyptus and thyme. Use as supportive therapy for coughs, colds, nasal and chest congestion. All Thera Wise products are paraben and petro-chemical free.
Is Thera Wise VpR Vaporizing Rub safe to use on toddlers/children?
As you can imagine, the mama behind Parenting By Natue is as picky as picky can be when it comes to what she will use with her own children. Yes, you can definitely use Thera Wise Vapourizing Rub for toddlers/children as a healthier alternative to the many over the counter ointments that contain petroleum, turpentine, EDTA etc. VpR uses pure essential oils and bio-active plant based ingredients. Their kid friendly formula does not contain harsh, strong smells, and ensures children will be more receptive to the application. The application is not sticky, greasy or staining which, as a busy mom, is a real bonus. There's no need to change the bedsheets in the morning or shower off the residue before heading out. The ointment is absorbed quickly into the skin, leaving on the vapours of the healing essentials oils behind to work their magic.
How to Use Thera Wise Natural Decongestant Ointment
For children over the age of 1.5 years, apply Thera Wise to the chest before bedtime or during the day to help with breathing and clearing of the nasal passages.
Avoid placing VpR Vaporizing rub around the nasal area for children under 1.5 years or age as the decongestant properties can cause an excess of mucus that may block the nasal passages. The NoseFrida has been found to be a very effective solution for this symptom. For children 1.5 years and under, we recommend applying Thera Wise Natural Decongestant Ointment on the bottom of the feet and placing socks over top, in addition to a small amount to the back (upper torso). When use with the NoseFrida nasal aspirator, your little one should find relief. Not recommended for babies under 8 months.
