Pleasant smell. Inhale 1 tsp. in boiling water for respiratory problems, like colds and asthma, but use a bowl you don't care about. Friar's balsam is very sticky and no amount of scrubbing will remove it. The U.S. Army uses friar's balsam to treat foot blisters. It stings, but allows you to keep walking.

I was having a lot of pain with dry, cracked and bleeding skin on my thumb. I used several OTC topical antibiotics to heal my thumb and nothing worked. I read several reviews how Friar's Balsam not only disinfected, but also pulled the skin together on open cuts to aid in healing. Within 3 days, I noticed a significant improvement and my thumb was healed within a week. A great product and Well.ca had my order to me in 2 days. I will continue to shop at Well.ca - very satisfied!
