Pine tar extract :
The pine bud contains principally resins and an essence rich in pinene that gives it powerful antiseptic properties.
These general essential properties are focused on the realm of respiration: antiseptic, decongestant, anti-cough, and help to make bronchial secretions more liquid, thus facilitating their expectoration.
At present, the pine bud is used mainly in the prevention and treatment of the infectious respiratory illnesses of winter. In particular, all the bronchio-pulmonary diseases: tracheitis, acute and chronic bronchitis, coughs and head colds, rhinitis, sinusitis, pharyngitis and laryngitis.
Scotch pine furnishes a pine tar – called Norwegian – a semi-fluid plant tar, dark brown in colour, produced by the distillation at low temperature of the trunk and roots.
Menthol was discovered in Japan more than 2000 years ago.
Menthol occurs naturally in the essential oil of peppermint. It is extracted from types of mint rich in menthol, including field mint (menta arvensis) or peppermint (menta piperata).
Menthol has a strong soothing action thanks to its cooling effect and its anaesthetic properties. It is an antiseptic and potent bactericide, as well as promoting expectoration and improving the sensation of breathing
Menthol is a terpene alcohol (hydrocarbon present in natural essences of plant origin), extracted from mint essence. Responsible for the characteristic odour of mint, it has soothing and antiseptic qualities.
When inhaled, menthol is effective in diminishing nasal congestion and coughing in patients suffering from colds, and in reducing the frequency of coughing fits in those with bronchitis, as well as the feeling of suffocation in the chest.
