Last year, I was introduced to Maty's line of health products. These all natural products are a safe alternative to toxic ingredients found in many OTC cold meds. Their line currently contains Baby Chest Rub, Kids Cough Syrup, Cough Syrup, Vapor Rub, and Breathe Better Nasal Ointment. Maty's was nice enough to send us the Kids Cough Syrup again this year & they had great timing – everyone came down with a cold right after we got it. When we aren't sick, we still use Maty's (and homemade elderberry syrup) as an immune booster during Flu (vitamin D deficiency) Season because its made from natural ingredients that safe for every day use!
After learning about the ingredients in Vick's Vapor Rub, I threw out the ones we had on hand. Vick's “works” by tricking the brain into thinking airflow is increased with the cool sensation caused by the menthol. Placing Vicks under the nose (doesn't everyone do that?) can actually cause severe respiratory distress in some children as it increased mucus production, the last thing you want when dealing with inflamed airways! Maty's baby chest rub is menthol & petroleum free, relying on herbs such as Dill, Eucalyptus, and Lavender to help your little one breathe better & feel comforted. The adult version is great for my husband & myself. He seems to catch at least a couple colds every winter and is a bigger baby than our boys when it comes to being sick (Sorry honey, but its true!) so I like to keep him stocked with products that work well for him, especially since he's normally at work & unable to grab things without spending a fortune.
Because we have been so blessed, with every purchase you make, a donation is made to Vitamin Angels, a vital organization committed to reducing child mortality by distributing crucial dietary to underprivileged children around the world. At Maty's we believe “you don't pay love back; you pay it forward,” and we hold that tenet central to our mission.
I was provided with 1 bottle of Maty's Cough Syrup free of charge in exchange for my honest review. All opinions and thoughts are my own.
