My go-to ointment

My wife bought a tin of Watkins ointment from her cousin, Gwen Bailey a good few months ago. When we both contracted Covid 19 last year August this Watkins ointment in the green tin was my go-to ointment to help me open my chest and assisted with my and Wifey's breathing. I believe that it played a significant role in our recovery. Praise God for Watkins ointment.

Menthol Camphor

I was raised in this since childhood use it for variety of ailments. Seemed to have been stronger camphor smell in the past. Still my no. 1 ointment.
