Vapour patch containing essential oils helps to aid gentle decongestion in children with blocked noses

DUBLIN- 13 September 2017 Colief®, expert in baby health, has announced the launch of the Colief® Breathe Easy Patch, a gentle decongestant patch which can be worn on clothing or bedding to improve breathing and ease nasal obstruction, particularly at night. Single use and easy to apply, the Colief Breathe Easy Patch contains a formulation of essential oils including eucalyptus, peppermint, lemon and rosemary oils to aid decongestion and help to ease the discomfort of colds.


“One of the main concerns of parents using essential oil products to ease decongestion is the risk of irritation to the skin, particularly in young children,” said Dawn Kelly, member of the Colief Expert Panel and former health visitor. “The Colief Breathe Easy Patch attaches to nightwear or bedding, minimising any risk of irritation and ensuring the oils remain at a safe distance from children’s airways and delicate skin.”


Babies and children often suffer from colds because their immune system is still developing[1], and decongestants such as eucalyptus oil[2] can relieve the blocked or runny nose experienced by many children. Clinically tested to last up to eight hours, the natural essential oils in Colief Breathe Easy Patch alleviate nasal congestion and reduce discomfort.


Sharon Skelton, General Manager Europe, Crosscare, said: “As experts in baby health, we are constantly talking to parents to ensure we can meet their needs, and we are excited to launch the Colief Breathe Easy Patch, the latest addition to our range of products for young families.”


The Colief Breathe Easy Patch is suitable for use in children over the age of three, and is available in stores for RRP £5.95 for a pack of six.
