camphor oil

The quality of the oil is good but having to buy six very small bottles in order to get the quantity is silly. Can you sell bigger bottles?

Essential ingredient

Camphor is an essential ingredient with no substitution possible in the balm that I make. I am very happy with the quality of the product and cannot ask for a better.

Great oil

Not as intense as I thought, which is a good thing! Doesn't burn your membranes but still clears a stuffy nose effectively
