I haven’t blogged in three weeks. Some of the reasons include the preparations for Ziggy’s preschool graduation and Zander’s baptism, which both took place a little over a week ago. But another reason was because 4 out of 6 of us in the family (Ziggy, Zander, hubby and myself) got sick with the flu.
It’s so hard when several members of the family gets sick at the same time. It’s even harder when us moms get sick because our tendency is to still try and take care of everybody even while we’re not feeling well. That’s exactly what I experienced during the past two weeks. Luckily though, there was this product we got to try for the first time that helped alleviate the symptoms of our cough and colds. It’s called Euky Bearub.
Euky Bearub is a officially distributed in the Philippines by Koofty Enterprise Inc. It’s one of the products of Euky Bear, a trusted health brand in Australia, that has been providing all-natural products for almost 40 years.
Why We Love Euky Bearub
Euky Bearub is an award winning, all-natural eucalyptus chest rub that helps relieve the symptoms of colds. We Hubby, Ziggy and I got to try it within the past two weeks and we love it for the following reasons:
1. It’s all natural.
The ingredients of Euky Bearub include Eucalyptus oil, eucalyptol, menthol, camphor and rosemary oil. Eucalyptus oil has traditionally been used to relieve the symptoms of respiratory disorders for more than 160 years. It is a volatile aromatic expectorant, which means that it produces vapors that have an expectorant action (similar to those in chesty cough medicines) when exposed to heat. Expectorants make the body’s mucous secretions thinner and more watery, breaking down congestion and making it easier to cough up. Eucalyptus oil is also a natural antibacterial and antimicrobial and its aromatic nature is thought to have therapeutic benefits, too.
I love all-natural products, especially when it’s for my kids to use. As much as possible, we limit the use of any product that has harsh chemicals. With Euky Bearub I know that it will be safe for us to use.
2. It can be used by the whole family.
Euky Bearub is suitable for kids at least 2 years old as well as for adults. Euky Bearub may be used on babies as well but it is not recommended to be administered directly on the skin. Instead you can put some of the ointment on a tissue to be placed near the head of the your baby’s bed or cot. Always consult your doctor first though when it comes to using this for babies.
For pregnant and breastfeeding moms, you’d be happy to know that Euky Bearub is also safe for you to use. This made me really happy because I’m still breastfeeding Zander. It sucks to get sick while pregnant or breastfeeding because you’re not allowed to take the usual medicines. For instance, when I was sick recently, I was only allowed to take Vitamin C tablets to be on the safe side. Lucky for me I already had Euky Bearub then and it really helped give some relief for my cough and colds.
3. It’s a multi-use product.
Aside from relieving the symptoms of colds and congestion (as a chest rub or inhalant), Euky Bearub can also be used to help ease the itch and sting of minor insect bites. It can also be used to massage into muscles to relieve muscular pains from flu, rheumatism, fibrosis and lumbago, as well as sprains and strains (after inflammation has settled).
4. It’s very handy.
Euky Bearub is available in a handy 50 gram tube that you can easily place in your bag and take with you wherever you go. Application via the tube is easy compared to those that come in ointment pots. Just squeeze the right amount from the tube and you’re good!
5. It’s effective!
I can say that this product really works in clearing a stuffy nose, soothing the throat and easing cough. It also helps one breathe easier and sleep better. But the best thing is that although it is considered mid-strength or stronger than the usual “baby” chest rubs, it is still very gentle on most sensitive skin.
Don’t just take it from me though. This product is actually award-winning, having been an Australia’s My Child Excellence Awardee from 2013 to 2015.
Euky Bearub costs only Php 400 and is available in Rustan’s, Mothercare and Hobbes & Landes branches as well as in several mom and baby stores. For a complete list, click here. For more information about Euky Bearub and other Euky products, visit www.eukybearphilippines.com.
