Soothing Muscles and Relieving Coughs with Less Mess {Mentholatum Review}


My oldest daughter is running cross-country this year. We love going to the meets and watching her try to better her time. We live in Michigan. The chill in the air is just noticeable enough to wear a heavier jacket and soon, a scarf and gloves.

The weather was pretty chilly a few days ago for one of her meets. She was running hard and by the end of the race, she had worked herself into a bit of a coughing fit. Between the cardio exercise and crisp autumn air, my sweet girl was having a hard time catching her breath.

Once we arrived home, I pulled out my Mentholatum No Mess Vaporizing Rub. I received this item to try and review for you. There was no time like the present to see if this 100% natural product lived up to what it was made for.

My daughter looked kind of down when I brought her into my bedroom. I helped her take off her hoodie and applied some Mentholatum to her chest, neck, and back. Now, in a perfect world, I would've had her shower and get her pajamas on so she was nice and clean before I rolled on this vaporizing rub, but she was so exhausted and spent, that I just let her relax for a little while before I rushed her to the next thing. My daughter asked me what I was doing, and I told her that this would help her feel better. She calmed down a bit and then said, “Oh, that feels pretty good.”

Now, my precious first born loves physical touch. She is old enough now that I sometimes forget how important it is to give her a long hug each day and occasionally brush her hair for her. She cherishes those things.

So here I was rolling this Mentholatum on her when I realized that this probably was not just going to assist her breathing, but feel pretty good on her muscles. The Mentholatum roll-on applicator makes the product completely mess-free. As moms, we are always washing our hands. It was nice to have something that rolled on and kept my hands from getting oily (or in this case, sweaty.)

My daughter laid down and took some deep breaths. She fell asleep on our bed until dinnertime.  Truthfully, I think her favorite part about the whole thing was how the roller made the experience feel more like she was receiving a massage. Since my daughter is older, I used a little more pressure when pressing it into the strong muscles of her back, and it provided some sweet momma love to her at just the right time.

Here are a few quick facts about Mentholatum:

·      It is maximum strength cough relief

·      Safe for use on children ages 2 and up

·      Relieves aches and pains of muscles and joints

Thankfully, I don’t have any sick kids right now, but I am bracing myself for the cold season soon to arrive. I am thankful that I have this item in the hall closet and on my nightstand for those nighttime coughs and sniffles. I am ready to roll (literally!)

Here's my nightstand. I am ready, whatever the hour, for a coughing son or daughter. Did that just rhyme?

Really, as a mom, you need whatever tools you can get your hands on to make your job easier. You have a lot on your mind. You have a lot on your hands! This is a practical and effective product to keep in your home.

Enjoying the crisp air and reveling in one less mess,
