  1. Growing up my mom would also make noodle soup, we ate oranges and saltine crackers and drank seven up when we were sick. In my teen years I’d swallow honey and wash hot tea down too for a sore throat. Vicks was a big help for us too. Magic when couldn’t breathe. My father I remember always pulled it out for us. I also use it now. 🙂 I haven’t tried on the feet with socks, that sounds cool.

    • ah… honey is a huge one in our house as well. It was so important to help with my asthma because I would cough a lot and it would soothe my throat. 🙂 I think it’s always great to have some old memories of things to help with ailments. Try the feet with socks… it helps especially when having a cold or coughing…helps the boys sleep through thenight.

      • My throat would swell so bad during those times, I learned it from an exchange student. 🙂 I liked it better than my aunts version of just mixing the tea and honey in a cup and drinking it. The honey felt like it coated my throat and then the tea following just felt more soothing. Yes 🙂 Will do try thank you! 😀

    Wow, my parents used to use this on me, and it always felt so comforting!

    Wow, blast from the past! I haven’t thought of Vaporub in years!

  4. I haven’t used Vick’s in years but just thinking about it returns the scent memory. Every time I got a cold or the flu, there was my mom with her cobalt blue glass (yeah, I’m that old! lol) jar of Vapo Rub to rub me up, pop me in a flannel nightie and tuck me into bed. Hot chicken soup, 7-Up (in the old school green glass bottle, of course!) and apples to follow.

    Okay, now I’m misty and I want my mom. 😀

    We love Vicks! My kids always use it when they get colds.

  6. I felt I could smell this reading your article. It does bring back memories.

    I used to hate when my mom pulled this out (mainly because my pjs would stick to it) but you can’t beat if when you’re all stuffed up and feeling terrible.

    When my son is sick, this is all I’ll use! It helps so much at night!
