A few weeks ago I requested samples of some of Airborne's new products. I have used their effervescent tablets before but I was curious about the three new products they have now.
The first one I decided to try was the "Hot Soothing Mix" in "Natural Honey Lemon Flavor". The product comes in an easy to open packet and what you will find inside is a fine powder, unlike the effervescent formula which is a tablet. It does say on the back that is to be used by adults and children over 12 years old so I would follow that unless your doctor has instructed otherwise. They direct you to add 6oz. (3/4 c.) of hot water to the powder in a glass, however, you can adjust the amount of water to your taste. You can take this version of Airborne up to 3 times per day with 3-4 hours in between each dose. The powder fizzed as I poured the water in and quickly dissolved. It smelled great, very lemon-y and just a hint of honey. I braced myself for the first sip expecting it not to taste good. It tasted really good! True to the scent it has a strong lemon flavor with an undertone of honey. I could imagine that this would feel really good on a sore scratchy throat!
I love that it is also good for a cold. It has 13 vitamins, minerals and herbs in it. The ingredients are actually not that bad either. In addition to the vitamins, minerals and herbs the "other ingredients" are listed as: Honey Powder (Cane Juice, Honey), Sugar, Natural Flavors, Stevia Leaf Extract. I know that Natural Flavors is pretty vague but it's near the end of the list so there cant be that much of whatever that is. Overall, I am happy that I chose this drink to sip on while I ate my lunch. It warmed me up and I can see myself getting some of this to have on hand in case of a scratchy throat starting!
I'll write up a separate review for each of the other products as I try them. I also figured I would share with you where I got my samples so you can try them for yourself!
