Vicks VapoRub has been trusted by generations of parents to help relieve colds and congestion, so their children can enjoy a good night’s sleep.
When gently rubbed into the chest and back, the essential oils are released, helping to clear the passages, promote easy breathing and relieve sore throats and coughs due to colds. VapoRub can also be melted into hot water and inhaled as a steam.
Next time your little ones are full of cold, kiss and help them feel better with the gentle, effective goodness of Vicks VapoRub.
