One of the more frustrating things that we have to deal with in life is when we get sick. In fact, many of us keep medicine on hand in our bathroom medicine cabinet, just in case we end up with a cold or the flu.
When you take a look in the medicine cabinet, you’re likely to see a wide variety of solutions, from all natural remedies to something medicinal for the common cold. There is also something else that is likely in the medicine cabinet or tucked away under the sink, and that is Vicks VapoRub. Once you see what it is able to do, you will add it to your grocery list and never be without it.
Like most people, I knew that VapoRub was able to help with a congested nose or a chest cough. What I was surprised to learn, however, is that it could be used for a wide variety of reasons. Those reasons included everything from potty training a dog all the way to smoothing out stretch marks. This is truly an amazing product.
When you rub VapoRub on your forehead and temples, it can relieve the pressure that is building in the head as a result of migraines.
When you have a cold, put VapoRub on your feet and cover them with socks. Just before bedtime and it can help with cold and flu symptoms.
3. Puppy potty training
Fido may like to pee in the house but he won’t like the smell of VapoRub. Put an open jar where he likes to relieve himself.
4. Stretch marks
When you rub VapoRub on your stretch marks regularly, it helps to smooth out the marks and fade the bright colors.
Take some VapoRub into the woods with you and put it behind your ears, your neck and the joints of your arms and legs. Don’t use harsh chemicals to keep away the bugs, use an open jar of VapoRub on the picnic table.
You can rub VapoRub on your sore muscles. The mentholated ointment can help to relieve pain and increase circulation.
Believe it or not, VapoRub may just finally cure your acne once and for all. Apply it at bedtime to the problem area and watch what happens in the morning.
8. Toenail fungus
This embarrassing problem can be eliminated with some VapoRub and time. Work the salve into the infected toenail along with the surrounding nail bed. Keep your feet uncovered.
If your cat likes to scratch, rub some VapoRub on those areas. You can use a small amount and it will keep them from scratching.
10. Ear ache
When you put VapoRub on a cotton ball and put it in your ear, it can help to relieve the pain. This will not clear up an infection but it will make you more comfortable.
When you have a tick, rub some VapoRub on it. They don’t like it so they will release their bite. If you see a bull’s-eye rash, speak to your doctor immediately because it is a sign of Lyme disease.
