Vicks Vapo-Rub on Feet to STOP the Coughing!

Great, Great Idea that really works. Before bedtime wash your child's feet and apply a thick layer of Vapor Rub to feet ((generic brand works just as good)) and cover with socks. It is no longer recommended that you apply it to the chest of children, so this is a great safe alternative. Has worked like a charm for my kids and the next time I have an annoying cough I plan to try it out myself!

For adults: Peppermint Schnapps (Our own Lucy makes a great batch!) added to coffee or hot cocoa works wonders for a cough and/or sore throat...

Please let us know if you have any great tips to ease or ward off colds this winter season!

  1. Hm, I don't have any sure-proof way to ward off or keep away a cold, but I've had a sore throat/cough this whole week and one of the things that really helped was (like you mentioned) hot cocoa. Definitely eased the pain (plus, it tasted pretty darn good - win win)
