Vicks Vapor Rub Shower Cubes
Before Christmas Maverix was in the beginning stages of getting Croup. The doctor recommended steam showers and putting a humidifier on while he slept. We use the Vicks humidifier and found that it was super helpful. Maverix has a bath every night as part of his bed time routine so we would run the shower with the door closed for 10 minutes and then fill up the bath so when he had a bath it very steamy in the bathroom. Then I stumbled upon these amazing things - Vick Vapor Rub Shower Cubes. We would put on in the shower when we were steaming up the bathroom and it helped Maverix breath so much easier. You can either use a vapor rub of your choice, or you can use Eucalyptus, Rosemary and Lavender essential oils. I used Vicks Vapor rub for ours! Check out the recipe below.
If you would rather not use Vicks you can also find homeopathic vapour rub, or you can use 15 drops each of the essential oils mentioned above.
