Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product ! I received Mentholatum Original Ointment in exchange for my honest review. Upon receiving it, I didn't have a cold and I was concerned about posting a review for a product that I hadn't tried. Upon reading the packaging, I discovered that I could also use this for muscle stiffness and soreness. That I do have. I rubbed some on my legs and neck before bed (too much spring raking for me). Amazingly, it had a nice warming effect and did relax those stiff muscles. As and added bonus it opened up my sinuses and I got a great night's sleep. I love the fact that it has 100% Natural Active Ingredients. Thanks. It's a keeper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful product The Mentholatum ointment has been a Great product that our family has been using for 3 generations now. I put a tiny bit on my pinky and smooth it in each nostril. It opens up my sinus passages and helps me breathe through the night. It's very effective and I use it every night. I'll be passing it along to my children too. It's a nice, natural way to feel refreshed and breathe better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good side effect I used this product to massage my aching shoulders the other day. It melted into my skin instead of staying sticky and messing up my clothes like other ointments. After a few minutes, I can feel a cooling and soothing sensation where I applied the ointment. And surprisingly, the refreshing smell of the product on my shoulder helped my stuffy nose breathe easier

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A very diverse product I thought I would only use this when sick but it turns out this product can be very nice and soothing to use at any time. I would compare it to Vic's Vapor Rub but much more pleasant. I sometimes get allergies and putting this product above my upper lip really cleared up my sinuses. I never look forward to getting a cold, but this will defiantly be a go to product when that happens!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product that has Many Uses! I've always loved this product. For a while I had thought they stopped making it since my local store doesn't carry, but then found it online. There's so many uses! I like to use it on my feet before bed, put on those socks and wake up to soft feet... They'll smell good too. I also use it as lip balm in a pinch whenever the store is out of my favorite softlips flavor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite!!!! I have used a topical analgesic rub for years, this one is by far my favorite though!!! It just clears up any sort of chest congestion I am having related to allergies or a cold. It's the best!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect ointment I love Mentholatum Ointment. I have this soothing ointment with me everywhere I go, as I use it daily. It has a pleasant fragrance that is not too strong to apply on the skin. It opens my nasel passage with its aromatic vapors. I like the perfect combination of camphor and menthol, and that it is made of 100% natural ingredients.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it I have nothing but good things to say about this product. It is an awesome product. It can be used in so many different ways. I applied a very thin layer under my nose and I rubbed some on my chest when I had a stuffy nose and some congestion. The vapor it released helped me sleep through the night. I also used it when I had minor back pain. The pain didn’t completely go away but it gave me some relief. I like that it has 100% natural active ingredients. I have already recommended this product to family. I will purchase in the future.
