Help Care for your Guests with this DIY Get Well Kit

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Chloraseptic® for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

Why does it always seem that your body knows exactly the worst time to get sick? I have seen a lot of posts on social media this winter about friends getting sick while on vacation or visiting family and friends. There is little worse than this in my opinion. One of my friends even spent the whole holiday laid up in bed at her in-laws.

On one hand, it is personally frustrating. After all the time spent preparing for the trip and the money spent, too, it can be quickly ruined by a bug that comes out of no where. Your trip is possibly ruined and you can’t even recuperate in your own bed. On the other hand, you can’t help but feel like a nuisance to your hosts. It is not like they were planning on acting as nursemaid that week.

As someone who has played the role of both patient and nurse, I love offering this DIY Guest Get Well Kit. I believe in making a small effort to make sure my guests are comfortable. Normally, this includes a fan, an extra blanket, the WIFI password, etc. However, since playing the role of patient myself more than once, I considered expanding my guest kit.

I am the type of person who tries to “suck it up” when she is sick. This is so NOT true when I am home alone with my husband. Then I am a big baby. However, if I am out and about, I don’t want to ruin a fun dinner party because of a headache or skip out on an outing because my throat hurts. At the same time, I also don’t want attention for it. I want to PRETEND I feel fine; not have people ask me every few minutes if I am okay.

So if I am staying over and get a headache, I want to be able to discreetly take some medicine before heading down for dinner or I want to be able to put a band-aid on if I accidentally cut myself without bothering anyone else. THIS is when I truly feel comfortable.

Obviously not every situation can ever be prepared for, but I find that this Get Well Kit helps to make sure my guests have everything to be comfortable – even if something goes wrong. Here is what I like to include:

  • A Nice Message or Cute Card
  • Magazines (in case they are stuck in bed)
  • Kleenex
  • Everyday lotion 
  • Lotions and shower gels with intentional scents (for energy, for stress relief, and for sleep)
  • Anti-Bacterial Gel (I prefer pretty scents from Bath and Body Works)
  • Gum and Hard Candy
  • Thermometer 
  • OTC allergy meds
  • OTC congestion meds
  • Ibuprofen and acetaminophen
  • Chloraseptic®

Do you use Chloraseptic®? We always had Chloraseptic® in the house when I was growing up, and I still do to this day. It is tied as the #1 pharmacist recommended sore throat relief brand, but it is the only one I will use.

Let me tell you something about me – I am HORRIBLE at having a sore throat. It is my least favorite thing to be sick with. Constantly being in pain every time I talk, eat or swallow drives me crazy, so I immediately turn to Chloraseptic®. I honestly don’t know if I would function without their products.

I always turn to the sprays first because they immediately dull the pain. My all time favorite is the Chloraseptic® Max Sore Throat plus Coating Protection. This is the spray of all sprays! It also comes in my preferred flavor of Wild Berries and has the special nozzle to better target the back of your throat.

Then, I like to carry the lozenges around with me in my bag. They have a great variety, including ones that are meant to target both sore throat and a cough. Plus, there are sugar free options, and I know that is probably important to some of you!

You should check out the Cold & Flu Tracker to see how your area is holding up this season as well as the $1 Chloraseptic® Coupon. Plus, the Chloraseptic® Facebook shares great DIY ideas and funny posts to get you through your week.
Is there anything else you would add to your Get Well Kit? OR is there anyone you could send this to? It would make a great care package for a college student or friend who lives too far away. If doing that, considering throwing in some saltines and microwavable soup!
