    Tried and true

    The smell and effects of Vicks Vaporub always remind me of having a cold or flu as a child and my mother would rub some onto my chest and back. Even after all these years, my family and I like to have a jar on-hand. We've also used it on mosquito bites since it relieves itching.

    One of my go-to remedies

    This product is a miracle, why? Because it still has effectiveness even 2 or 3 years down the road! It still smells the same and still gets rid of any headaches or stomach aches I or my family members may have.

    Must Have!

    Grew up on using and loving Vicks Vapor Rub.

    Smell is not overpowering, it helps relieves our stuffy nose and open up our airways, also great for massaging into sore muscles.

    Great for making you feel better when sick

    When I was a child, my parents would always apply this rub on my chest and under my nose. I would always be fussy because I dislike the smell. However, now, as an adult, I recognize how helpful this product is when your sick ; it opens up your airways, stop you from coughing and promote better breathing despite being sick. I still do not like the smell but I definitely use it when I'm sick!

    Cold & Flu Season

    Vicks Vaporub Topical Ointment has been in my house my entire life growing up, my parents used this "back in the day" and we continue to use it today. It's affordable and the rub takes effect right away allowing you to fall asleep quicker with a cold.

    don't leave home without it

    I take Vicks vaporub with me every time I travel. It prevents my nose and throat from getting dry and scratchy, especially on airplanes. I also use it daily during our dry winter months.

    works so well!

    I think this is most peoples go to for relief when they are sick and congested! I know it's mine. It's inexpensive, starts to work right away, and you can easily find it in the medicine aisle at any drug or grocery store. Someone told me to put it on my feet at night when I go to sleep for extra relief and OMG it works so well! Everything is absorbed through your feet so it makes total sense that this would amplify the effects of vapo rub! Awesome product and I love that it is topical and not a pill or drug.

    this is always in my medicine cabinet and I use it every time I am sick, It relieves congestion and helps with a sore throat and sinus pain. I also put it on my chest with a hot water bottle.
