Have a tub of Vicks Vaporub lying around the house but never seem to use it? Well, it’s time to take it out of the cupboard and put it to good use. Here are some surprising ways that you can use vapor rub, as brought to us by YouTuber JewelsyCakes.
1. Reduce acne and pimples
Vaporub features ingredients such as camphor and eucalyptus oil that dries out the acne overnight. Just dab a little bit of the stuff directly on the pimple and leave it overnight.
2. Nail fungus
Thymol is an ingredient inside vaporub, an oil that comes from the thyme plant. Apply Vicks to your nails twice a day should you think that your nails have been infected.
Cover your feet with socks at bedtime, and continue to trim the nails until the infected part is removed effectively.
3. A natural insect repellant
An ingredient in the rub called cedarleaf oil is a natural insect repellant, so apply it to your skin or clothes to repel insects.
4. Aching muscles
Vicks can be an amazing relief for sore and overworked muscles, and best of all its almost instant!
