Having a cold is nasty, you just want it to go away as quickly as possible. I feel so sorry for little ones who can’t blow their noses. Autumn’s gets very blocked up and she sounds congested when she’s teething too. I was recently asked if I’d like to try out some Klear-vol for her. These essential oils are designed for children from the age of 3 months to aid inhalation. However, adults can use them too!
Ease of use
Klear-Vol comes in small green capsules, which are NOT to be eaten! They’re very simple to use. All you need to do is snip off the end of the capsule and squeeze the contents onto a tissue or handkerchief. This should never make skin contact, but be secured safely nearby the child. Adults also have the option of squeezing it into a pint of hot water and inhaling for relief.
The capsules contain essential oils. Pine oil, menthol and thyme all work together to help inhalation.
You may think that it might not be that effective if it’s a small amount of Klear Vol on a piece of tissue not directly next to your child. However, the smell is strong and it quickly spreads around the area that the tissue is in. If it’s quite a small room, you’ll be able to smell is in the entire room!
It certainly is powerful enough to help inhalation, easing congestion and helping little ones to sleep easier. Thankfully, I think we’re finally out of the main cold season now. However, my little one gets very bunged up with hayfever or when she’s teething so these are still helpful.
Disclosure: I was sent samples of Klear-Vol to try for the purpose of this review. As always, all views and opinions are honest and my own.
