I don’t know about you, but I hate being sick. If you were to take a look in my medicine cabinet, you would see a variety of all-natural remedies for everything from an earache to the common cold. After learning about what VapoRub can do, I’m adding it to my bag of tricks.
Like many people, I knew that VapoRub could be used to help with a cough to chest congestion but I was shocked to learn about all of its uses. Not only can you use it to help keep you healthy in a number of ways, it can also be used for other things, such as potty training a puppy or fighting stretch marks.
The following are our 11 favorite uses for VapoRub. I’m sure you will find it to be quite enlightening.
Rub VapoRub on your forehead and temples.
Use a small amount of VapoRub and the mentholated scent will help to relieve pressure in your head.
Rub VapoRub on your feet and put on socks
If you are dealing with cold and flu symptoms, rub some VapoRub on your feet and cover them with socks before bedtime.
3. Potty-Train a Puppy
Keep An Open Jar Where The Dog Likes To Pee
Dogs and cats don’t seem to like the smell of VapoRub and will avoid an open jar.
4. Stretch Marks
Rub VapoRub Directly on Stretch Marks
Reduce stretch marks but rubbing VapoRub on them. It helps to tone down the bright colors of the marks and helps them to fade.
5. Bug Repellent
Rub VapoRub Behind The Ears, on the neck, arms and leg joints
Don’t spray harsh chemicals on your body, use some VapoRub to keep the bugs away. You can also keep an open jar on the picnic table to keep them away as well.
6. Muscle Pain
Rub VapoRub onto your Sore Muscles
The menthol in this ointment can help with sore and aching muscles. It helps to reduce pain and increases circulation.
VapoRub may just be the miracle acne cure you were looking for. Apply it to the area where acne is a problem at bedtime and watch to see what happens in the morning.
8. Nail Fungus
Rub VapoRub on the affected toenails
Toenail fungus can be an embarrassing problem but VapoRub may be the answer. Work the salve into the infected toenails and the surrounding nail bed. Allow your feet to stay uncovered
9. No More Scratching
Use VapoRub where your cat likes to scratch
If your cat loves to scratch, VapoRub can keep them away from those areas. Apply a small amount to the area where they like to scratch.
Rub VapoRub on a cotton ball and put it in your ear
There is nothing worse than an earache, but a little VapoRub on a cotton ball might help. Put a small amount on the cotton ball and put it in your ear for a few hours, several times daily. It won’t clear up an infection but it may help to ease the pain.
Rub Some VapoRub on the tick
Ticks do not like VapoRub, so applying some directly to the tick may get them to release their bit.
Of course, if you see any type of bulls-eye rash, it is best to go to your doctor, as it could be the sign of Lyme disease
