Olbas has extended its well-known and loved range with the launch of its NEW Breathe Easy Patches, offering a quick, hassle-free and easy to use solution for easy breathing, whether you’re at home or travelling.
With 6 individually wrapped patches per pack, Olbas Breathe Easy Patches are simple to apply to clothing or bedding, providing a comforting aroma that lasts up to 8 hours to help little ones rest easy.
Leading GP and expert for Olbas, Dr Roger Henderson, says to help little ones fight a lingering cold, try these simple tips:
- Ensure your little one gets enough sleep – it’s the body’s natural way of recharging its batteries. So, if your child starts to feel under the weather from congestion or a sniffly nose, help their body to recover by getting more sleep.
- Encourage them to not touch their face. The cold virus is often carried on the hands and then enters our body through our eyes, nose or mouth. So, minimise the risk of catching a cold by washing their hands regularly. To make getting rid of germs more fun, sing a song such as ‘twinkle twinkle little star’ whilst rubbing their hands together vigorously with lots of soap and warm water.
- Keep them active! Physical activity gives the immune system a boost, so try to encourage light activity such as walking the dog or going out for a bike ride, to help ease symptoms of congestion and sniffly noses.
- Decongestants such as Olbas can also help ease symptoms of a blocked nose. Alternatively, if you are on the go and your little ones suffer from symptoms of a cold then Olbas Breathe Easy Patches can help ease these away. Place these patches on clothing or bedding at a distance of at least 30cm from the face and preferably near the chest.
