It’s Vick’s VapoRub, and most of us have a jar in our house. Typically, this topical cream is used to treat congestion caused by the common cold. However, it has far more uses than meets the eye. Made of eucalyptus oil, menthol, camphor, and other calming agents, Vick’s VapoRub can treat a variety of problems.
For instance, VapoRub can be used to repel bugs and other animals while you are out touring or hiking. The strong scent will deter bugs from coming your way. Moreover, you can rub it on sore muscles or other pain areas, and it will provide a sense of comfort and relief from the pain.
