Today I woke up craving the smell of croup ointment and not just any croup ointment...I really really want some Daniel's Croup Ointment*. At first I was confused by this bizarre craving until I realized that I could breath and was catching a cold (my first one of the year...yeah.).
Now that I think about I like to smell of it when ever I am sad, depressed or I am need of comfort. It invokes memories of being taken care of and loved it and always makes me feel better. This may be why I also love the smell of eucalyptus and menthol.
To be honest its a weird thing to like the smell of...I almost enjoy being sick. Almost.
It does so much for such a little jar. But I am out of my croup ointment and had I settle for Vick's Vapor Rub. Which helped me clear up the sinus problem but didn't give me the over all feeling of well being.
I really need my dad to visit and bring me some more.
*As far as I know Daniels Croup Ointment was created in a small town in Idaho and unless you order it online you can only buy it at the drug store in Malad Idaho.
