Last week, I bought him VICKS Vapor Rub from Mercury. But since I am pregnant, he had to apply VICKS on his own chest. It didn't really fully work. Perhaps, it needed my magical healing touch.
I read somewhere that you can't use Vicks on newborns. So to be safe, I don't touch it. I'm paranoid that way. Blame my OCD.
After our fight last Wednesday night, where I lectured my husband about Math while he was coughing, I felt the need to make it up to him.
I asked him to take a shower while I prepared my Euky Bear "Healing Kit".
Euky Bear is a popular Australia brand that offers soothing natural remedies –from steam vaporizers to inhalants, natural cough medicine and the famous Euky Bearub chest rub.
My Euky Bear Healing Kit includes the following:
1. Euky Bear Steam Vaporizer
2. Euky Bear Cleaning Tablets
3. Euky Bear Inhalant
4. Euky Bear Chest Rub
After my husband finished taking a bath, I asked him to go to bed. I applied the Euky Bear Rub on his chest. EUKY BEAR RUB IS SAFE FOR NEWBORNS AND PREGNANT WOMEN.
When I was done applying a generous amount on his chest, he said a mosquito bit him inside the car (I don't know why there are mosquitoes inside his car) so I also put some Euky Bear Rub on his mosquito bites. The Euky Bear rub is versatile!
Then I turned on the aircon and prepared the Euky Steam Vaporizer.
How to Use the Euky Bear Steam Vaporizer? VERY EASY
1. Put 2 cleaning tabs inside the vaporizer.
The cleaning tabs will prevent the accumulation of the mineral deposits inside the heating module. This will help your vaporizer live longer. When you buy a vaporizer, you get a free bottle of these cleaning tablets.
2. Put 2 cup full of the Euky Bear Inhalant.
I sometimes put more depending on how strong I want to eucalyptus smell.
3. Fill the Euky Bear Vaporizer with water.
Make sure you stay within the limit. There is a line outside the module
4. Turn on the Vaporizer.
Here's the best part,
You don't have to directly face the Vaporizer to inhale the steam, the same way you normally would if you use an inhaler or a nebulizer.
You can go to bed, sleep soundly and the steam will just work its magic.
By 10 pm, my husband was sleeping very soundly. As I watched him sleep, I was overwhelmed with guilt. Here's a man who loves me very much and works hard for me. I should be his "healer" and his "comforter".
Sometimes, because of ambition and greed, I forget my role as a wife. It's good to be reminded. And if you want to be a good wife, well, you need to have your own version of a healing kit.

You can buy Euky Bear from Rustans, Hobbes and Landes. But if you are like me, who refuse to drive and deal with traffic, you can buy online at www.milkandhoney.ph.
I bought my vaporizer and inhalant online from @milkandhoney.ph because I now have this fear of crossing the street and being squished like a grape.
