Vicks Vaporub

No matter the season, colds and flu are never far away. These diseases are not serious but are accompanied by very troublesome symptoms: fever, runny nose, chills, fatigue, muscle aches ... To help you cue this quickly, think of Vicks Vaporub.

Vicks Vaporub has been used for many years for its therapeutic virtues. Since its discovery by an American pharmacist in 1890, this product has been widely prized to fight against winter ailments including colds and coughs. Until today, it is still used for these medicinal purposes and its durability is the ultimate proof of its effectiveness. Unlike several drugs that survive no more than a generation, Vick Vaporub, has been used for a hundred years.

This product is an ointment with decongestant properties, consisting of camphor, eucalyptus, levomenthol, vaseline and thymol, and also has antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties.

Vicks Vaporub is often used around the nostrils to purify the sinuses and relieves respiratory problems and cough.

But did you know that it is also possible to use it on the feet to enjoy its benefits?

Apply Vicks Vaporub on the feet to fight against the common cold:

Normally, to relieve colds, Vicks Vaporub is often used on the chest, but although it sounds weird, it can also be effective against this condition when applied on the feet.

Let's first understand how this product works. Vicks Vaporub acts as a decongestant because of the effect of the essential oils it contains. The latter cause a vasodilatation which will activate the blood circulation and allow this cream to act on the lungs faster.

What you need to know is that the feet are real ways to act on the blood system. The soles of the feet especially is an area rich in capillaries and blood vessels. When applied to Vicks Vaporub, this accelerates the mechanism of diffusion of the active ingredients of this cream, which reach the blood system faster and arrive faster to the respiratory system.

Although it seems unlikely, this practice is not rocket science. It is a simple method to boost the effects of this product. You should not, however, expect miraculous effects in no time.

Vicks Vaporub will not cure the cold in the blink of an eye but will be very effective in relieving the cough that tends to get worse during the night.

So what is the method to follow?

Before sleeping, apply a generous layer of Vicks Vaporub on the soles of your feet, after having thoroughly washed and dried. Massage slightly by making circular movements so that the product can be absorbed by the epidermis. Put on socks and sleep.

Its effect will be felt quickly. You will notice that your cough has decreased and you breathe more easily.

Caution: Vicks Vaporub is not recommended for children under 6 years of age or for pregnant and breastfeeding women with strong ingredients.

Other Uses of Vicks Vaporub:

To fight nail fungus:

These frequent fungal infections, which affect the nails of the hands and feet require specific treatments to overcome it. But did you know that it is possible to relieve them using Vicks Vaporub?

According to research by the US Air Force and published in the Journal of American Board of Family Medicine, this product is effective in fighting this condition. After recruiting 18 people with nail fungus, who were asked to apply the cream at least once a day, researchers found that 15 of the 18 participants had satisfactory results after 48 weeks. They have all been healed!
