Breathing Difficulties

This could be a lifesaver, always keep Olbas oil and Vicks in your cupboard and also menthol crystal at all times!

If anyone finds it hard to breathe just put 10 drops of Olbas oil or a teaspoon of Vicks in a bowl of boiling water beside them, it helps to stimulate the bronchiles.

Do call an ambulance whilst awaiting the arrival the steam inhalation could be helpful. Also a sprinkle of menthol crystal in the palm of your hands with a little vicks or olive oil can be helpful with the breathing.

Mummy’s tip –

Just rub this across the chest and across the back, the results can be good.

Dental Treatment

Recently I had dental treatment. I was prescribed Antibiotics to take for three days to clear up an infection. The pharmacist dispensed them in a little white box with the doctor’s instructions on the label on how to take the medicine. There was no instructions in the box (literature) about what the tablets were or what side effects if any to observe.

Mummy’s tip –

I say always ask the pharmacist for a leaflet/s so you can read up about what you’re taking. Pharmaceutical companies please supply extra leaflets when small amount of tablets have to be put into small containers.
