This product has great Packaging.  Instructions are easy to read and see how much was to be taken with a very strong smell of honey.  It was very easy to read and determine how much is needed.  There didn’t seem to be any age ranges and so I presume it is Ok for all ages.  What I particularly liked was the fact that it was in a plastic bottle rather than glass as I have broken a glass one in the past and it was a sticky mess.  I can’t complain about anything.  The packaging and bottle was of high quality.  The dose was one 5ml spoonful which worked very well to ease Finn’s cough.  It worked all night as well and so was effective and long lasting. I have to admit Finn is very good at taking medicine.  I was a bit worried he may not like the honey taste but he took it with no problem.  I like the fact that it is homeopathic and herbal as it makes me feel like I am doing the best for Finn.  It also appears to have less colouring and flavourings than other medicines which is a great advantage.  As I know it is effective, it is worth the money.  I will definitely continue to use it as I know it is effective. I hope I can get it in our shops.  I would recommend it to others;  it is a natural product that is very effective. It is a great medicine, in a child friendly bottle which works effectively.

I thought the packaging was a bit dull but liked the plastic bottle;  much safer than glass and a measuring cup was easier to use for toddlers but wouldn’t for babies.  The quality of the product itself was good;  it was easy to use and looked and smelt ok.  My daughter did use it but didn’t seem to like the taste as with other products I have used (this is always personal preferrence).  I like the fact that they have used herbal ingredients in this product.  I think it offers great value for money and would be happy to pay this price for it. I will continue to use this and recommend it to others.  I do think doses need to be adjusted for different ages so they are more effective though.  Amanda Woodall – Kianna 2 Years

Looks good quality product, like that it is natural.  The packaging was fine with enough information though style of it maybe looks a bit dated.  The quality of the product itself was good.  The dosage is fine; 5ml is same as amount of other medicines used.  My son tried it but declared that he didn’t like it –unfortunately he’s not a fan of anything lemon flavoured so I think the lemon part of the product must have put him off.  I do like this; I prefer to give an herbal remedy if it will work, particularly for a cough where most cough medicines don’t do a lot anyway.  Reasonably expensive but would be prepared to pay the amount it costs if it was effective given that it’s a natural product. Unfortunately Alex didn’t like the taste so will not continue to use it.  I will recommend it to others as I like the idea of it being a natural cough relief product and a good alternative to try to other products on the market.  Good concept of natural cough relief,  it didn’t look all that appealing colour wise and unfortunately my son wasn’t a fan of the taste due to his dislike of lemons.
