Word! Petroleum Jelly

Word! Petroleum Jelly

Petroleum Jelly

(En español: Vaselina)

Say: puh-tro-lee-um jeh-lee

Don't put this jelly on your sandwich. Petroleum jelly is gloopy, gooey, slippery stuff that's great for protecting dry, cracked skin. If your nose feels dry and itchy from a cold or allergies a tiny bit of petroleum jelly might make if feel better and prevent a nosebleed.
