When I was a little girl and I had a cold or flu, I always remember my mum using Vicks to help clear my nose and ease my cough, it’s one of my fondest memories, my mum taking care of me.

Any time I would get a cold or the flu, my mum would give me warm water with a little lemon juice, she would give me a nice warm bath, apply some Vicks VapoRub to my back and dress me in nice warm pajamas, she would then tuck me into bed and I would feel much better, it’s those little memories that make my heart melt whenever I think about my mum.  I can always remember the scent of Vicks when my mum would twist of that cap, I knew I would instantly feel a little better.


Now that I have my own children, I want to nurture and care for them the same way, it’s horrible when your kids gets sick, they are so small and cuddles can only help so much!

When my oldest son or daughter has a cold or the flu, I follow a bedtime routine just like my mum did with me, except instead of water with lemon, they love a cup of apple juice and some chicken noodle soup before their nice hot bath, they also love a hot water bottle!

My kids love to feel safe, warm and comfortable, using Vicks has been passed down from my generation to theirs, it’s my favorite type of remedy to help ease aches, pains, coughs and help with those little stuffy noses.


Vicks VapoRub works pretty much instantly, from the moment it’s applied and it really helps give the kids a better sleep when they are sick. There are lots of solutions out there but Vicks VapoRub is a brand I have trusted for many years, it has never failed me when I have been sick!

It doesn’t just work for kids, it works for the whole family, because it is a topical cough medicine with medicated vapors and helps suppress a bad cough.

I don’t really like to switch medications because some cause jittery side effects and drowsiness and if Vicks VapoRub is used as direct it’s unlikely to cause any of these effects, I personally have only experienced comfort from using Vicks.
