I don’t know about you, but I grew up with a strong love for Vicks VapoRub. I’m so happy to be partnering with this amazing brand today, to share how this love goes back generations with in my family. I’m Puerto Rican and Cuban and if you’re like me, you had a Grandma who loved to use VapoRub with a passion. It was a joke around that house that if you came down with any ailment, my Grandma would say put some Vicks on it. She was very much like the dad in the movie My Big Fat Greek Wedding.
Since both my Grandma and Mom raised me, it’s been instilled on me to be the same way. When any of my family members has a cough, we always immediately reach for the Vicks VapoRub. It’s a must have to rub on a chest when nighttime coughs just won’t quit. Vicks VapoRub starts working instantly, so when my family is sick we trust it to get them feeling better right away! It has never let me down yet. Tea, hats, and Vicks VapoRub are my get well staples.
I do the same thing for myself when ever I feel sick. I always make sure my head and hands are always covered, (I always have cold hands when I get sick for some odd reason) and I climb into bed with a hat on (yes I have emoji hats), sometimes gloves on, and I rub some Vicks VapoRub on my chest. There’s a special connection I feel to my own Mom and Grandma when I use my VapoRub. It always reminds me of them. From the nostalgic smell to the memory of my mom rubbing it on my chest when I was sick, Vicks VapoRub has been a household staple for years.
There is something about the smell of Vicks VapoRub that always makes me feel better. It not only reminds me of my childhood, it always soothes my cough. I always keep it by my nightstand and our family turns to VapoRub (the #1 Pediatrician Recommended Rub) to help quiet stubborn coughs, all day and all night when the kids are sick.
