This is a simple ne555 timer IC based multi vibrator breathing effect . The LED blinks like we breathe we can control the breathing time using potentiometer on board. It works on 5 volts DC to 9 volts DC.

The working of this is simple that the n e 555 produces a frequency or a signal which then activate a general purpose NPN transistor which bank switches on and of the LED . The breathing effect is produced due to the charging of a capacitor which turns on the emither collector path for a short amount of time until the capacitor gets drained.
