Vicks VapoRub is effective during headaches, cold, cough, congested nose, and chest and throat staidness. But what you didn’t know was, there’s a lot more Vicks can do.
It is one of the most popular decongestants used.
Here are some amazing uses of Vicks I bet you haven’t heard of.
#1. Sinus Headaches
Place some Vicks under your nose and inhale deeply. The menthol in Vicks will calm your headache.
#2. Ease acne
Vicks can help clean your skin, all you have to do is apply it on your acnes a couple times in a day. It will dry out the acne and sooth the infected area.

Rub Vicks VapoRub on your neck, inner knees, elbows, and behind your ears. If you want to keep flies away, open the Vicks bottle. In addition, this is the best eco-friendly trick.

Rub some Vicks to your windows, walls, and doors, and your cat will stop scratching.
