Natural and conventional remedies for colds and flu are most sought out during the winter months. Since I opt for a more natural approach to health and wellness, I don’t use any of the over the counter cold and flu medications on the market. However, I still want relief for my little ones. Vick’s VapoRub has long been a popular choice for parents who want to ease cough and congestion or aid sleep. Several years ago I discovered a more natural product that is as effective as Vick’s but without petrolatum, which has been banned in Europe due to it’s potential as a carcinogen. Nature’s Baby Organic Ah-Choo! Chest Rub is available for purchase through Amazon if you’re ready to make the switch! Here are the ingredients of each, if you dare to compare!
