Few things are as awful as having to watch your child deal with a cough. Over the weekend, my daughter battled a bad chest cold; I was thankful that she was at least armed with some Mentholatum Nighttime Vaporizing Rub.
When I was little, my mother used to rub our necks and under our noses with vapo rub whenever we had a cold. Today, I rub my daughter's chest and back, and the bottoms of her feet, too. This new rub has a lovely smell of lavender, making it naturally soothing.
While the Mentholatum Company has been manufacturing chest rub since 1889, this year they turned to a panel of moms to find out what they really needed to treat their families’ cold symptoms. The answer was simple, a safe, hands-on solution without the strong odor. Make sure you have a jar in your medicine chest, so you'll be armed and ready the next time a bad cough hits your home.
