Bringing your Abuela's Vicks Remedy to the 21st Century

-


"Ponte Vicks hija, y ya se te va la tos!" growing up hispanic teaches you that Vicks is the cure for about everything!  There are several memes to prove it, here's my favorite one:
So when my baby got sick this halloween what was the one thing that popped into my head? Vicks! They make Baby Vicks but Camila's cough was so bad I didn't have time to go to the store so instead of putting it directly on her, I used my Scentsy!

 I'm pretty sure I've seen this on Pintrest but I can't find the pin anywhere, luckily it was such a good idea it got filed away in my mind.

To do this at home you will need: 

-Vicks
-Scentsy (or any other wax warmer like this one at Target)
-A small spoon
-Patience

If you're like me and already have a wax warmer at home filled with dry wax that you haven't used in a while then some patience will be needed to melt the wax! If you are also impatient like me you'll need to do this:
 1. Grab a pan and turn on the stove!
2.Once the stove is hot take only the TOP part where the wax is held
3. Place in pan until all the wax melts (For me it was  about 5 minutes)
4. Grab an oven mit and remove the plate from the pan CAUTION IT WILL BE VERY HOT!!!



Vicks + Scentsy = Magic

1. Plug in that cute little wax warmer
2. With a little spoon scoop desired amount of Vicks into the your warmer (I put 2 scoops to start off)
3. Let it sit there and wait for that signature aroma to fill up your room
4. Reminise on all of your child hood memories of you Ama putting Vicks on your chest and telling you to rest.
Camila finally stopped coughing & got some rest

That's it! It's a super easy way to get rid of you & your babies cough! Let me know how it works for you.
