The Childhood Nostalgia of Vicks®

My sense of smell is the easiest way to bring back a memory. A scent of a perfume can take me to my grandmother’s house and the smell of fresh tar makes me think of grade school because they always put new tar on the roof in the spring.

One of my favorite scents is Vicks® VapoRub™. When I was a child and had a stuffy nose my mother always rubbed Vicks® on my chest. It’s not that I love the idea of a stuffy nose, but I love the sense of comfort that the distinctive scent brings back.

When my kids were little, I used the rub on them as well, but now that they’re bigger, we use the Vicks® VapoPads. They provide up to 8 hours of soothing menthol vapors per pad!

The holidays and winter take a lot out of us and it’s hard not to get ill. Both stress and cold weather really do take a heavy toll on your immune system. Vicks® Humidifiers are still providing that same sense of comfort and health that Vicks® Vapor Rub always did for me as a child.

The Vicks® Mini Filter-Free Cool Mist Humidifier (in blue, green or pink) provides soothing, visible mist for temporary relief of cough and congestion symptoms. It’s a great way to make sure your child can sleep through the night and I love that it’s filter-free, so there’s one less thing I have to clean.

It’s important to make sure no mold is growing in humidifiers, so the Protec Humidifier Antimicrobial Cleaning Fish, which features a patented antimicrobial, Aqua stat, helps keeps your humidifier cleaner, longer and kills up to 99% of odor causing bacteria.

If you have a year round problem keeping the right humidity level in your home, you might like the Vicks® Humidity Monitor that displays a room’s temperature and humidity level to help provide information you need to control your environment.
