Still Out

vicksSorry to be a bore, but my cold lingered long enough that I couldn’t have enough time to actually smell anything in depth enough to actually write something coherent about it. So next week I’ll be back with a review.

In the mean time, can I just sing the praises of Vicks® VapoRub®? I love the stuff, from it’s cooling properties (great when you have a fever in 90 degree heat) to the fumes that keep the sinuses from getting blocked. That and the green tea with mint I got at Amazon kept the worst of it all at (somewhat) bay.

I’ll post next week; if you want to post your own cold remedies please feel free to do so in the comments.

    Just posting my fervent wishes that you get through this cold unscathed. I had a cold/virus in May that totally knocked out my sense of smell. Two months later, I’m about 40% recovered, can slightly smell my favorites but not sharp enough to smell anything new. I never understood just how much perfume meant to me until now. So — drink lots of fluids, use that Vicks and rest, rest, rest. Get well soon!!!

    Poor you!
    Hope you are feeling better soon.

    I always like to sip hot water with lemon. Or homemade ginger tea (mash up some ginger, steep in hot water, honey optional) when I’m sick.

    Summer colds are the worst 🙁 at least in winter it’s more fun to snuggle and watch DVDs all day anyway..
    Vicks vapour rub is also great as a steam treatment. Put a dab in a bowl with boiling water, put your face over it and a towel over your head to keep the steam in and breathe deep. Just don’t open your eyes or you’ll burn your eyeballs out! 🙂
