Cold and flu season hit us hitting pretty hard. Even now that Spring is here, many parts of the country are still dealing with cold weather and snow. But at the first sign of a sniffle, VapoRub or Vaporú, (how our mamas and abuelitas call it) is the go to for many Latina moms. The calming ingredients inside this jar are the perfect remedy to sooth our chests and throats. Abuelita always trusted VapoRub, and Abuelita was always right! Check out how some of our #LatinaBloggers spreading the #VapoLove and sharing their childhood memories with Vaporú.
"I vividly remember that itchy feeling in my throat and that raspy cough. Once the VapoRub touched my throat and chest the vapors almost immediately opened my airways. It was a welcome relief and a calming feeling
"Growing up, my home always had a jar of Vicks VapoRub, or Vaporú, handy. As a kid, I remember my mom rubbing it on at night to help me feel instant relief."
"I clearly remember my mom using Vicks for her headaches... for my gripes, for my bruises... and for a zillion other illnesses. And now that I am a mom I find myself doing the same with my 4 year old."
"When my children are sick, I cuddle with them too. I read to them, bring them hot chocolate, stroke their foreheads, and rub Vicks VapoRub onto their chest."
