I’ve had common cold symptoms for about a week now. For whatever reason, this cold is refusing to leave my body. I’m not looking for sympathy. I’m writing to tell anyone else who has chest congestion to drag your sick self to your local drugstore and pick up a box of Puffs Plus with Vicks. These tissues aren’t going to rid you of your sickness, but they make it so much nicer to deal with. The minute I opened the box and smelled the familiar Vicks scent, I was hooked. I didn’t even have to blow my nose at the time, but I took a tissue out, put it to my nose and breathed in. It was immediate aromatherapy. My nasal passages actually cleared a bit. In addition to the Vicks scent, the tissue is so soft and gentle on the nose, which really makes a difference when you’ve blown your nose for the 20th time of the day. These tissues just don’t allow for a red, chapped nose.
Hopefully, those of you reading this aren’t sick. But if you are, trust me on this one. It’s worth getting out of your jammies for. Now that my cold has circulated throughout my family, everyone in the house is walking around holding tissues under their noses. My only gripe is that now I have to try to figure out who in my family is actually sick and who just likes the smell of the tissue! J
