  • Hey!!! You Have Any Menthols?

    We sure do!!! But not the smokable kind.  The kind that I am talking about this time is the kind that will help to cure what ails you.  Remember when your grandmother had that one salve that was go-to for whatever problem you had?  If you had a cold, she would rub that salve on it, give you a kiss & sent you off to bed.  If you fell down & skinned your knee, she would rub the same salve on it, give you a kiss & sent you off to bed.  If you were failing in school, she would rub that salve on your head.  If you had gotten your heart broken, she would rub salve on it & so on & so forth.

    In my family, that salve was Vick's vapor rub.  It seemed like every adult female member of my family had a secret stash and was already to rub its menthol vapor-ey goodness into child chests at the first sign of a cold, give a kiss & send us off to bed.  Then, almost magically by morning we would be cured (or so it seemed).

    Re| Store Bath Soak is inspired by that fond menthol memory.  It is chock full of the menthol that according to Livestrong, can relieve the symptoms of a wide variety of respiratory ailments pertaining to:

    • Congestion
    • Asthma
    • Colds
    • Flu
    • Bronchitis

     

     

    Menthol relieves the symptoms by thinning the mucous & expelling it right on out of there. The article also states that menthol can treat intestinal gas problems, alleviate headache pain.  So, maybe my grandmother was more ingenious than she was given credit for. 

     

    If you are looking for a cruelty-free, vegan option bath soak that is full of the congestion relieving menthol, then Re | Store Bath Soak is your only option.  It is also contains eucalyptus, ginger, & blue chammomile ( which will take your blues away & lull you off to sleep).
