Vicks VapoRub is one of the most useful things you can have lying around your home; not because of only its cold healing properties, but because of so much more as well!
VapoRub has so many uses it will blow your mind. So next time you have some extra, don’t throw it out and see if it can help you in any of these situations!
Keep bugs away by spreading some of the VapoRub behind your ears. Bugs hate the aroma of eucalyptus, a compound in VapoRub. A little will keep them away!
Dogs also dislike the smell, so putting some on the area where they keep wetting inside will make them stop once and for all.
People also swear by VapoRub being able to heal stretch marks.
If you have a migraine, apply some to your temples to ease the pain. If you have neck pain, apply some there too! The menthol helps soothe muscles.
If you have pimples of zits, VapoRub can take care of them for you. A little dab on the red spot will dry it out overnight.
You can also cure toenail fungus with this stuff! Just apply overnight.
Like dogs, cats also hate the smell of VapoRub. A little application where they might be scratching will ward them off.
If you have an earache, stick a cotton ball with VapoRub in your ear, and seal with with some tape. This will reduce inflammation and help it heal.
You can also use VapoRub to safely remove ticks. Instead of trying to grab them and possibly bursting them and causing infection, apply some of the ointment and they should release themselves.
If you have a cold, spreading some of the ointment on your feet can help relieve symptoms even faster because your feet are the number one medication absorbents!
