Last week I had the misfortune to catch my son's cold. Whatta thrill!!! I had to miss a girl's night out that I had been looking forward to for awhile. I stopped in at my mum's and right away she handed me a bottle of Vick's Vapo Rub and told me to rub my throat and chest. After my visit I wrapped my neck in a scarf and headed home. That evening I doctored my son and myself applying the Vapo Rub liberally to our throats,chests and under our nostrils. I had a wonderful sleep and was able to carry on almost as if I didn't have a cold. On the morning of day two, my congestion was pretty much gone and now I totally recommend the Vapo Rub to all my friends. Mum used ii on us 30years ago and it worked and now I am using it on my children. That is a good product in my books!
Used this when I was a child, and use this on my children now. I rub it onto my kids chest, back, and on the bottom of their feet to help open up their nose, and relieve chest congestion. Best stuff I have ever used, and can always find it at a decent price!
We all know how beneficial this is when one has a cold and congestion. I rub it on the chest and neck when I need it and put a tiny dab under my nose. Works well BUT what most people don't realize is that if applied to the heels, it works absolute wonders.
Staple in our home. Grew up with it and use it all the time at first sign of sore throat, plugged nose or cough. Works like a charm! Thanks mom lol. I have recently learned of new uses for vapo rub but haven't tried them yet.
I used to be addicted to this stuff and I would put it under my nose every night. It just made me feel so much better and I could breathe good. It is perfect when you are congested.
Works wonderfully for stuffy, congested noses! I have to say I really do dislike the smell, but I'm willing to overlook it when I have a cold because it's so effective.
Been using this since I was a kid. Works wonders. I always feel a bit better the next day, after applying this on myself the night before.
I've been using this product for over 40 years you just can't go wrong with the original!
Works amazingly! Nose feels so fresh and clear afterwards. My only issue is that it doesn't last very long :(
I LOVE Vicks when I am sick. I find it very soothing on a tight chest. My son also loves it on him when he isn't feeling very well. After we put it on his chest and back he is usually asleep within a half hour. I find it helps soothe his cough a little but, but not mine.
