10 surprising uses of Vicks Vaporub

Vicks VapoRub is an ointment that’s been used for decades to relieve coughs and other symptoms of the common cold. We probably all remember a time when our mom or grandmother used this product to provide relief when we were congested or had other problems with colds.

But how many of you know that you can use it for more than cold relief? Vicks VapoRub has a lot of other beneficial uses that might surprise you. Want to get more out of your container of Vicks VapoRub?

Check out these 10 alternative uses.

1. Works as an insect repellent

Try using an open Vicks VapoRub jar to repel mosquitoes, flies, and other insects. It’s perfect when you suddenly run out of repellent or you have left it at home.

2. Takes good care of your feet

Before going to bed, apply some Vicks to your heels, especially to the cracked and dry areas, and put your socks on.

 Make sure you’re using old socks because the next day they will have a super strong menthol smell. In the morning, wash your feet with cold water, use a pumice stone to scrub away dead skin, and then apply your regular foot care product.

 Keep doing so every night, and soon you’ll see some noticeable results

3. Reduces stretch marks

Rub some Vicks VapoRub on your stretch marks, and in just 2 weeks you will see that they gradually become less visible

4. Relieves earache

Here’s one simple way to relieve an earache: put a small cotton ball with Vicks VapoRub in your ear, and leave it there for a few hours until you see your doctor.

 Remember: although this method does help relieve ear pain, it doesn’t cure the infection itself. So it’s very important that you consult your health professional as soon as possible.

5. Brings noticeable results on your face

Apply a thin layer of Vicks VapoRub to the problem areas (acne, pimples, etc.). Leave it overnight, and clean your face in the morning. Be persistent, and you will see positive changes very soon.

6. Relieve headache

Some of the headaches you might experience throughout the day can result from stress or tension.

 To get some relief from the pain, apply a bit of Vicks VapoRub on your forehead and in a few minutes, you’ll notice you feel better.

7. Repel mosquitoes

Most types of mosquitoes seem to dislike the strong smell of Vicks VapoRub. This ointment helps keep insects away to avoid getting bitten, and it also treats the bites you already have.

 Just apply VapoRub when you’re in areas with lots of mosquitoes or simply rub it onto any existing bites to take the sting out.

8. Chapped lips

From an aesthetic point of view, chapped lips are not attractive – but they can also be a sign that something’s wrong. To exfoliate dry skin and hydrate your lips, all you need to do is rub on a little Vicks VapoRub whenever you notice they’re dry

9.Fat Burning Cream

Vicks can help you reduce your fat and cellulite, especially in your stomach and legs area when combined with camphor, baking soda, and a bit alcohol.
 Apply the obtained cream in the desired area and cover with a black plastic strip. Do this at home, work, or before your exercises.
