    Answering my own post :oops:

    I just checked online... was being a little lazy
    Whilst there is not enough evidence to say that it is safe to take or not, its best avoided whilst pregnant...

    Ignore me for now... :)

    Oh dear, I've taken it a couple of times. Derrrr, I assumed it would be fine. I've got an awful cough and cold at the moment and the pharmasist recommended Olbas pastles and Oil, both have been great. Don't know if that would help you too.

    For colds/sore throats etc, try half a freshly squeezed lemon and 2 teaspoons of MANUKA HONEY (has to be Manuka) in a cup and add boiling water and drink it. It is SO good and the honey has great anti-bacterial properties!

    Posted this on the other thread about colds but thought I would also post here :D
