Breathing relief

We love this product. We use it on my sons chest and feet when he gets chest congestion to help him breath easier. I also put some in a wax warmer to let the smell get in the air while he sleeps and it really helps him.

Vicks Vapor Rub

At my house we call vaparoo. Both my mother and my husbands mother used it on us when we were small. I use it for myself and my children. It helps us breathe especially at night and when we are laying down and it also soothes sore throats and coughs. Wonderful product to pass down to children.
