Preparing for Winter with VICKS - Plus Giveaway!

Preparing for Winter with Vicks® – Plus Giveaway!

This time of year with its chilly and often snowy weather makes me really enjoy cozy days at home. I love to wrap myself in a soft blanket and cuddle on the couch with my husband and daughter watching movies. These are the best days!

I just spent last week cleaning and redecorating my living room. It is absolutely becoming my favorite space in my house. We’re not quite done, but the room is coming together nicely. I plan to spend as many winter days as possible in this room both working and relaxing. It’s really important to create an escape in your home; a place where you can create and recharge. I’m so happy to have that room for me and my family now! We’re ready to take on the winter months.

With winter comes cold and flu season. I have a little one in preschool bringing home germs, so I always need to be prepared to fight off the occasional cold and rare flu. As a mom it’s just part of the job to be ready for anything! I was thrilled to receive a Vicks® Winter Wellness Care Package stocked with all the essentials (keep reading to find a chance to win one!). You can find Vicks® Humidifiers and all of these products at

I am crazy about the Vicks® Humidity Monitor! Everyone should get one of these. Did you know that the ideal relative humidity level for your home is between 40% and 60%? During cold months those levels can drop much lower. I always notice when the humidity is too low because my throat gets very dry at night. No fun!

Vicks® cool and warm mist humidifiers are very helpful in attaining a good humidity level in your home which can reduce the survival of the flu virus in the air and on surfaces.

Another important tool to have on hand is the Vicks® SmartTemp wireless smartphone thermometer. You can download the free app that makes it easy to take and track temperature readings for your family.

So many more wonderful products from Vicks® came in my care package including VapoPads, a Protec Humidifier Cleaning Fish (so cute!), and a Vicks® humidifier. Preparing for Winter with VICKS - Plus Giveaway! Preparing for Winter with VICKS - Plus Giveaway!

You can use VapoPads with Vicks® cool or warm mist humidifiers. They come in Sleepytime Rosemary and Lavendar or soothing Menthol scents that last for eight hours.

Isn’t the Protec Cleaning Fish so cute in my Vicks® Humidifier? The fish reduces up to 99% of odor causing bacteria, mold, and algae. All you have to do is drop one into your humidifier tank!

    I love all of Vicks products! I’ve been an avid user since I was a child. I would love to have a new cool mist humidifier as mine recently died. In Florida houses can get dry year around from the a/c and then the heater when we actually need it. I love the humidity monitor too as that would be constantly used. It might help us all in the family who have sinus troubles.
