Got Cold?


During a lecture on Essential Oils, they told

us how the foot soles can absorb oils.

Their example: Put garlic on your feet and

within 20 minutes you can 'taste' it.

Some of us have used Vicks Vapor rub for years

for everything from chapped lips to sore toes

and many body parts in between.

But I've never heard of this.

And don't laugh, it works 100% of the time,

although the scientists who discovered it

aren't sure why.

To stop night time coughing in a child

(or adult as we found out personally),

put Vicks Vapor rub generously on the bottom

of the feet at bedtime,

then cover with socks.

Even persistent, heavy, deep coughing

will stop in about 5 minutes and stay stopped

for many, many hours of relief.

Works 100% of the time and is more effective

in children than even very strong prescription

cough medicines.

In addition it is extremely soothing and

comforting and they will sleep soundly.

Just happened to tune in A.M. Radio and picked

up this guy talking about why cough medicines

in kids often do more harm than good,

due to the chemical makeup of these strong

drugs so, I listened.

It was a surprise finding and found to be

more effective than prescribed medicines

for children at bedtime, in addition to have

a soothing and calming effect on sick children

who then went on to sleep soundly.

My wife tried it on herself when she had a

very deep constant and persistent cough a few

weeks ago and it worked 100%!

She said that it felt like a warm blanket had

enveloped her, coughing stopped in a few

minutes and believe me, this was a deep,

( incredibly annoying!) every few seconds

uncontrollable cough, and she slept cough-free

for hours every night that she used it.

If you have grandchildren, pass this on.

If you end up sick, try it yourself and you

will be absolutely amazed at how it works.
