In the end, there is a video that will help you with all of the amazing ways you can use Vicks VapoRub.
Here we go:
Reduce Acne & Pimples
Vicks is packed with a few acne-fighting ingredients like eucalyptus oil and camphor. This means that the acne will dry out during the night.
Put a little dab of Vicks on your pimple and leave it overnight.
Toenail or Fingernail Fungus
The VapoRub is equipped with fungus-fighting properties. The major ingredient that will make this happen is called thymol. This is an oil that comes from Thyme.
Just apply Vicks directly on the nail twice a day. Cover your feet with socks during bedtime, and trim the nails until the infected part is removed.
Natural Insect Repellant
It contains cedar leaf oil. This is also known as a natural insect repellant. Rub on the skin or clothes to repel the insects.
Vicks can also be used for your sore and overworked muscles. Take a portion of Vicks and rub it on the acting area. Once you’ve done that, cover it with a warm and dry towel.
Removes Splinters and Heals Smaller Cuts
It contains menthol and camphor. Both of these ingredients have antiseptic abilities. If you want to speed up the process of healing, rub it on the affected area.
Heals Cracked Heels
What a rhyme.
Cracked heels look really bad. It’s even a bigger nightmare if you want to heal them. Maybe the VapoRub is the solution you’ve been waiting for so long.
Spread a thick layer of Vicks on your feet and heels before bed. Massage for 5 minutes and wear socks to lock the moisture overnight. In the morning, wash your feet with warm water.
Repeat until heels are restored.
Soothe Minor Burns
Minor burns can be quickly relieved by applying Vicks.
The camphor and menthol in Vicks can heal the aching elbow. Re-apply until the elbow stops with the aching process.
