The Best Way To Apply Baby Chest Rub
When you think of vapor rubs, that robust scent of eucalyptus comes to mind. You probably recall being sick and your mother slathering it all over your chest and even adding a dab under your nose. But is that the best way to apply it to your baby?
Although it seems to be effective, what if there was an even better way to apply a chest rub? A way that may be more efficiently absorbed into your system and definitely more comforting and soothing for your baby.
Have you ever tried to put it on the bottom of their chubby little feet? Here’s why we think it’s the best way to apply your Maty’s Baby Chest Rub.
Applying Baby Chest Rub To Your Baby’s Feet
Although chest rubs (or vapor rubs) are most commonly used on the upper chest and throat area to relieve congestion, putting it on their feet is a better way to apply; it’s more relaxing and also gets those hard working aromas into their system quicker by using reflexology.
Reflexology is much more than your everyday foot massage. It’s an ancient Chinese holistic practice that involves rubbing and applying pressure to specific parts of your feet to induce a healing response. Depending on where you apply the pressure on your foot, a different body system gets stimulated.
By massaging Maty’s All Natural Baby Chest Rub into the pads of their upper feet (which connects to the respiratory system), you are not only rubbing immune boosting essential oils into their skin which enters their body, you are stimulating their respiratory system that will help relieve their cough or congestion. It will also soothe them right to sleep. Who wouldn’t want to fall asleep with a foot massage?
A Few Added Bonuses:
- Quicker Absorption: The pores on our feet are thicker than anywhere else in our body which allows for substances to absorb faster and reach our bloodstream quicker.
- Extra Soft Skin: The natural oils of the vapor rub will help soothe and moisturize the skin on their little feet.
- For Any Age: While Maty’s All Natural Baby Chest Rub is suitable for ages 3 months and up (score!), you can also use our All Natural Vapor Rub for littles that are over 2 years old.
We hear from customers all the time who swear by applying our rubs to the bottom of their feet, but massaging it in will help to alleviate a cough or cold symptoms even more. It’s a win/win for the whole family!
