Medicine Cabinet Must-Haves

This post and giveaway are brought to you by Mentholatum® Nighttime Vaporizing Rub

What’s in your medicine cabinet? Most people stock commonly used items right up front: thermometer, lotions, bandages and ibuprofen. And, toward the back you may find a jar of chest rub that’s been around for years. Now there’s a reason to give chest rub a spot in the front row.

The Mentholatum Company talked to consumers to find out exactly why chest rub wasn’t a go-to cold relief product. Dissatisfaction with the fragrance was a major complaint. Users wanted a product that would bring relief for coughing and chest and muscle aches, but with the added benefit of a pleasant smell. New Mentholatum® Nighttime Vaporizing Rub was formulated with the soothing scent of lavender to address these concerns.

People have been claiming the therapeutic benefits of lavender for thousands of years, and herbalists value it for its calming and soothing properties. Its name comes from the Latin word lavare, meaning “to wash,” but its uses go far beyond the act of cleaning. Today you’ll find lavender as an ingredient or fragrance in many popular products.


Launched this month, Mentholatum® Nighttime Vaporizing Rub contains the scent of natural lavender to help provide restorative rest to those suffering from coughs and mild muscle aches associated with colds—making it a particular favorite of parents looking for relief for sick family members.

Mentholatum® Nighttime Vaporizing Rub is the first chest rub specifically formulated for nighttime use. Its lavender scent will help you relax and fall asleep, and its maximum strength cough suppressant, which lasts up to eight hours, will help you stay asleep. This is a powerful combination of relief and restorative rest. A medicine cabinet must-have? We think so.

  1. My little gal recently had a high fever. We use cold ice packs to help bring it down before giving her meds. And of course lots of cuddling helps.

  2. I like you on Facebook

  3. I make chicken noodle homemade soup for them. I give them medicine and a wash rag to wipe their face off. Also have them lay down with comfortable pillows and blankets in their bed.
