If You Put A Cotton Ball With VapoRub in Your Ear All Night, Here’s The Surprising Effect

Vicks Vaporub, who doesn’t have it at home somewhere? This extremely useful cream has been around for many years to cure coughs and other cold symptoms. Did you know that you can use VapoRub for several of other things besides colds?

1. Earache

When I suffer from a cold the only thing that I use is Vaporub. Even as a child you could smell me from miles away because of the strong scent of the ointment. A lot of people, including myself, are not big fans of the smell but what can you do, VapoRub is just the best remedy to cure a cold.


Now I recently found out that VapoRub doesn’t only cure colds, but it also works really well against earache. Earache can be a sign of an ear infection, but it can easily also be a symptom of a cold. Even if you do everything that your doctor tells you to do, an earache can be very painful and keep you from your daily activities, especially before going to sleep. By putting a little pit of VapoRub on a cotton pad and putting it in your ear you can ease the pain. The morning after you will wake up completely refreshed and without any sign of earache.

Because of the ingredients such as eucalyptus, menthol and camphor, it is useful for numerous other problems. The three main ingredients in VapoRub prevent infections and are anti-bacterial. That should probably explain the magical working of the products. In this list you will find 11 more unexpected uses for Vick VapoRub.
