Aches, Pains, and Stuffy Nose? Zim's Can Help and We Have A Giveaway


Cold and flu season is in full swing in our part of the country, and I know it is in others as well. It looks like for the foreseeable future it will be here for a while yet too. It's not fun and we all look for ways to feel better. One thing that is always reliable are the good old fashioned and proven remedies!

Zim's has several products that really help deal with the aches and pains that come with colds and flu as well as the stuffed up nose and chest congestion. The nice thing is, that both of these remedies have been around for a long time and really proven themselves to be very effective.

Zim's Max-Freeze is something I really love having around. I not only get the wonderful aches and pains with the cold and flu, but I have aches and pains that tend to hang around all the time. Max-Freeze really helps me deal with those. It's super easy to use and provides a cooling sensation that utilizes a topical analgesic formula to deliver temporary relief to aching muscles and joints. It's formulated with naturally-based ingredients including aloe, arnica, Vitamin E and tea tree oil, so you can feel good using it knowing there isn't a bunch a junk in it that could harm you in other ways. Max-Freeze is available in gel, roll-on and spray applications. My favorite is the roll-on.

The really nice thing is that although when you initially put it on it has that ever familiar smell that similar products have, but the smell doesn't linger. As it is absorbed in your skin it goes away even though it keeps on working for a long time. You don't go around smelling like your medicine cabinet!

Zim's Advanced Vapor Rub is something I will turn to for all kinds of things, but mainly for stuffiness and chest congestion. It works, plain and simple! It's an all-natural, petroleum-free formula that temporarily relieves cough due to the common cold. I have found over the years that it is good to apply it to your chest and then lay a soft cloth over it, like flannel. But I also love using it on the bottom of my feet. I really can't tell you the reason why it helps from there, but it sure does!  

It can also be applied to sore muscles and joints for relief from minor aches and pains. One of my friends loves to use it around her nose to help combat the struggles she has with allergies. When she uses it and goes to a new place, she doesn't suffer from the affects of her allergies as much. It comes available in a jar or a tube with an easy-on, no mess applicator, which I really like.

Zim's is something I highly recommend keeping available in your medicine cabinet at all times. Both of the products can be used for a number of things and you can rely on them!
