Our Top Cold and Flu Remedies

by Elyse Hoffman

With cold and flu season in full swing, here are some of our top cold and flu remedies available on beneshop  

1. Vicks VapoRub, Lavendar Essential Oil Chest Rub Ointment (FSA/HSA Eligible)

Vicks VapoRub helps relieve cough symptoms with a calm and soothing Lavender scent. Use it on your chest and throat to help temporarily relieve coughing pain. This is a must-have when the cold strikes our team!

Review: “We use Vicks all the time in my house and it’s just so comforting when someone is not feeling well. When the kids have a cough we put it on their chest and their feet and it really soothes them and helps them drift off to sleep. My grandmother used to put Vicks on me when I was sick as a kid and the scent just brings back those comforting memories. I hope to make my kids feel as comforted as I felt then, when they aren’t feeling good. The lavender Vicks is great because it really helps them to wind down and fall asleep easily. We don’t go a winter without buying a jar of vicks! – Amazon  Customer


2. Ricola Dual Action Cough Suppressant & Oral Anesthetic Throat Drops (FSA/HSA Eligible)

Ricola Dual Action is one drop that offers multi-symptom relief, helping soothe both coughs AND sore throats. Thanks to its liquid center filled with soothing menthol and the Swiss Mountain herbs, this cough drop does it all.  

Review: “We love Ricola dual action—they’re very serious cough drops. I discovered them three years ago during a miserable run of allergies where I felt like I hadn’t breathed through my nose or taken a single breath without coughing for weeks. One Ricola dual action later, I was breathing easy for at least a half hour, and through both nostrils to boot! We keep them on hand at all times for when we need serious relief. It’s hard to find anything but the (awesome) cherry flavor in stores near me, sometimes I can find the lemon, but I’ve never even seen the mint. Now we’ve got a back stock of all three flavors and couldn’t be happier! Amazon Customer

3. Vicks DayQuil & NyQuil LiquiCaps, Cough, Cold & Flu Relief (FSA/HSA Eligible)

We love this dual package for both day and night when cough, cold, and flu symptoms strike. It helps relieve sore throat, congestion, runny nose, and fever helping you power through the day and sleep through the night. 

Review: I had a cold that was keeping me up at night due to frequent coughing. The NyQuil stopped the coughing so I could get a full night of sleep, and the DayQuil kept me from coughing while at work. I’m very satisfied with this product.Amazon Customer

4. Vicks Vap Portable Nasal Inhaler (FSA/HSA Eligible)

It’s easy to use – just inhale the soothing & refreshing Vicks vapors through each nostril and use as often as you need to and you’re good to go. It’s also easy to carry – take it with you in your purse or pocket so you can discretely enjoy the soothing Vicks vapors you need to make it through the day.  

Review: I use these every winter/spring thanks to some good ole cedar in Oklahoma. Instead of going through the work day with Vick’s on my face, I take puffs of these throughout the day and it does the trick! Highly recommended!!” Amazon Customer

5. Vicks CoolRelief FilterFree Humidifier (FSA/HSA Eligible)

The Vicks Ultrasonic CoolRelief Filter Free Humidifier + VapoSteam is designed to quietly provide visible cool, the medicated mist that relieves cough and congestion. The mist helps reduce respiratory and dry air discomforts by increasing humidity levels to help you breathe better and sleep more comfortably.

Review:The first night with this humidifier, my husband slept throughout the night and continues to do so most nights. It’s not particularly warm, but it is not cold air, either. We have used it with the Vicks liquid vapor. We are very happy with this and we both feel that it keeps the air moist and helps our breathing so that we sleep better. My husband washes it every morning and hasn’t complained about it being troublesome to clean, so we’ll say it’s easy to do so.
