Other uses for Vicks VapoRub

Vicks VapoRub comes in a small handy tub and the substance is akin to petroleum jelly. Because the ingredients are relatively inexpensive to manufacture it doesn't cost much to buy. Considering we stuff our medicine cabinets with single cures for all ailments, it's worth noting that we might already have all we need already. As the three key ingredients are already in Vicks VapoRub, the combination can treat all kinds of health problems simultaneously. For instance, dabbing a small amount on the temples can reduce a tension headache. Aching muscles respond well when it is smeared on the skin or added to a hot bath. It's a wonderful moisturiser and can heal cracked skin and if you happen to get an insect bite, sting or small cut or graze, it helps draw out impurities.

Often the pain is brought on by excess wax gathering in the canal or it could be a symptom of a really bad dose of flu. Dipping a small wad of cotton-wool in Vicks VapoRub and placing it in the ear overnight can help alleviate pain. It's also a good remedy for infected toenails. Simply rub the solution into the nail and the fungus will disappear over time. Insect stings and bites won't be as common if you smear Vicks VapoRub on the skin as a prevention remedy. They don't like the smell or taste so they're more inclined to leave you alone. If you do suffer an insect attack it's great for calming the itchy aftermath.
