Growing up with a Dominican mom, I learned at a very young age that Vicks vaporub is the "cure all" of life. Yes, it's intended use is to suppress a cough but it can also do a number of other surprising things.
Here are 5 ways to use Vicks Vaporub:
The most known use for Vicks Vaporub. Apply some to your chest and feet to help get rid of a cough and breathe easier.
2. Sore muscles/Body aches
Not only is it made to sooth a cough but it is also intended for sore muscles and body aches. Think of it as how you would use Icy Hot.
I almost forgot how good this works until I used it the other day. I had a beastly breakout on my face and applied some Vicks vaporub on it overnight. The next morning it was gone!
Rubbing this onto your temples and forehead can relieve a headache. The scent of the menthol will help release any pressure and that headache will be gone.
5. Nail Fungus
This one I didn't know about until recently and had to share it with you. Get rid of nail fungus by applying the vaporub onto your nails for 2 weeks. Once the nail grows out, it should be as good as new.
Do you know of another use for Vicks vaporub?
Is there another "cure all" product that you use?
