Beat Your Cold Naturally

Blog Wellness

When I was a kid my mom always used to rub vapor rub on my chest at the very first sign of a cold. The distinctive, effervescent scent and feel has been something I’ve longed for in a natural form for far too long. She always did keep me healthy and kept my cold’s at bay, but over time I’ve learned that most conventional vapor rub’s contain petroleum, petrolatatum, parabens, mineral oil or all of the above as their most active ingredients! No way!  I’ll skip putting petroleum on my skin – thank you!

If you don’t follow me on instagram or Periscope [whacha waiting for, friend? =)] you might not know – I just had surgery. Oral and nasal surgery, in fact.  Without anesthetic. Yup.  I’m nuts.  It was Ouch. Many, many days of uncomfortable. And that story belongs in a totally different post. 😉


I’ve spent most of my days right here lately, waiting for this whole thing to pass.

After just a few nights of sleeping on the side of my face that wasn’t five times it’s normal size, I was waking up to super stuffy nostrils as well as a raspy voice. Oh no, I realized, I was getting sick!  Having someone (and their medieval torture devices known as medical instruments) in your nasal cavity will do that to you.  But I already had my solution! I immediately reached for my Maty’s.



Maty’s All Natural Vapor Rub and Maty’s Organic Cough Syrup couldn’t have come into my life at a better time!


Maty’s Vapor Rub is a natural, petroleum free, non sticky and made of absolutely effective herbs, essential oils and butters to treat colds, coughs and even aches and pains! I love the beautiful synergy of medicinal herbs like eucalyptus, wintergreen (my favorite!) and peppermint, as well as sunflower oil, shea butter, and healing castor oil.  I apply it directly under and into my nose and can feel 100% safe about the super simple ingredients. It also works immediately, which I love! If you have dryness or nasal issues brought on by allergies, cold dry weather, or a cold you will want to give this a try!  I use it on my chest at night to keep the cold at bay and it worked in just a night to clear my symptoms up completely.  Pro Tip: Use this on achey muscles as well for immediate relief!


I also grabbed the Maty’s All Natural Organic Cough Syrup.  This powerhouse’s ingredients also impress me immensely. Check them out:


Most cough syrup causes drowsiness and sometimes even irritability. Not this time!

Maty’s worked right off the bat to combat my scratchy throat and stopped my irritation and the cough I really didn’t want! It also doesn’t taste like nasty cough syrup. Although I am a pro at taking healthy-tasting tonics, I can imagine you can chase this with your favorite beverage (a tea is perfect if you’re fighting a cold) if you really need to. I love the side effect free qualities!



Just a few days of using my Maty’ products and I am cold-free, healthy and so happy to share my experience!

I hope they help you, too.

with love,
