The new inhalers have added wording "1 scented stick". The new aroma is very displeasing and an obvious change from the original formula. Not sure what possessed the company to make the change but it is clearly not a good one.

We want you to enjoy a pleasant scent with our VapoInhaler, so we're sad to hear about this. It may help to know we haven't made any changes to our packaging since 2016 and our ingredients since 2014. You should enjoy a soothing menthol scent, so we'd be more than happy to see what happened along the way. That said, please know we have many processes in place to ensure you only get the best, so we'll be sure to share this with our Quality team. Meanwhile, we hope to hear from you at (800) 873-8276.

i would like to know why the formula changed? with the added Siberian Fir Oil, it makes the inhaler smell very moldy, and very unpleasant to use, PLEASE go back to the original formula, stick to what works, very frustrated about this NON improvement.
