Mentholatum Vapour Rub – Congestion Relief for Kids

Children commonly suffer eight or more colds a year* – and it’s not just confined to the winter months. So it makes sense to be ready to tackle the miseries of congestion and stuffy, blocked noses with a gentle, effective vapour rub which can be used for children aged over 12 months.

The aromatic vapours in Mentholatum Vapour Rub have been helping all the family to breathe more easily for decades.

Mentholatum Vapour Rub works fast to help relieve congestion which can block the nose and sinuses and make breathing difficult. When symptoms are bad a teaspoonful in a basin of hot water makes a soothing inhalant to ease nasal congestion and make breathing easier.

Brand manager Lynn McGinness said: “As parents we all want to do the best for our family and with children commonly suffering eight or more colds a year*, it’s important to have products you can trust ready to ease the symptoms. I always reach for Mentholatum Vapour Rub when my little boy has a cold because I know it will help to relieve congestion and help him breathe more easily.”

Mentholatum Vapour Rub is available in a 25g tube retailing at a recommended £2.10 and a 30g jar at a recommended £2.20. It is available from pharmacies, including Boots stores, nationwide.

Always read the label.
