What is Vicks VapoRub?Vicks VapoRub is an over-the-counter ointment that treats congested areas of the nose, throat and chest. The rub is composed from Camphor, Turpentine oil, Levomenthol and Eucalyptus oil; renowned ingredients that help ease symptoms of colds, coughs, chest infections etc.
Ingredient effectsIt's worth noting the benefits of Camphor, Turpentine and Levomenthol as separate entities. Camphor comes from the bark of the Camphor tree. Camphor has many uses and is especially good as a treatment for skin conditions and swelling.
It's even been used to treat heart disease. Similarly, turpentine oil comes from the Pine tree. We usually associate it with cleaning agents that can remove tough substances like paint. As well as acting as a great decongestant, it is a very effective pain killer when used on the skin as it soothes problematic nerve, muscle or joint conditions. Levomenthol is the full name for menthol which is taken from mint oil. It can really help ease pain, swelling and blocked noses and chests. Menthol is an ingredient that can be the foundation base of most cough mixtures sold over the counter. It's no surprise then when we continue to come up with new uses for Vicks VapoRub which contains all three super oils.
