Have you ever tried this? My Mom has always sweared by Vick's vapour rub for many yrs.?
My Friend shared this with me and thought I would ask if you have ever heard of this or tried it?

I WANT TO KNOW DOES THIS REALLY WORK???


LET ME KNOW!!!
Subject: Vick's Vapor Rub
Great idea! Hope it works! TRY IT THE NEXT TIME YOU GET A BAD COLD.

During a lecture on Essential Oils, they told us how the foot soles can absorb oils. Their example: Put garlic on your feet and within 20 minutes you can 'taste' it.

Some of us have used Vicks Vaporub for years for everything from chapped lips to sore toes and many body parts in between. But I've never heard of this. And don't laugh, it works 100% of the time, although the scientists who discovered it aren't sure why. To stop night time coughing in a child (or adult as we found out personally), put Vicks Vaporub generously on the bottom of the feet at bedtime, then cover with socks. Even persistent, heavy, deep coughing will stop in about 5 minutes and stay stopped for many, many hours of relief. Works 100% of the time and is more effective in children than even very strong prescription cough medicines. In addition it is extremely soothing and comforting and they will sleep soundly.

>Just happened to tune in A.M. Radio and picked up this guy talking about why cough medicines in kids often do more harm than good, due to the chemical makeup of these strong drugs so, I listened. It was a surprise finding (Vicks Vaporub generously on the bottom of the feet at bedtime) and found to be more effective than prescribed medicines for children at bedtime, in addition to have a soothing and calming effect on sick children who then went on to sleep soundly.

My wife tried it on herself when she had a very deep constant and persistent cough a few weeks ago and it worked 100%! She said that it felt like a warm blanket had enveloped her, coughing stopped in a few minutes and believe me, this was a deep, (incredibly annoying!) every few seconds uncontrollable cough, and she slept cough-free for hours every night that she used it.

If you have grandchildren, pass this on. If you end up sick, try it yourself and you will be absolutely amazed at how it works.

Yes it typically works well. I have tried it on children I babysat for, my two little cousins, and even myself. My mother has done it and my sister as well. It worked for all of us, so give it a try!!

Vicks works, but in conjunction with over the counter meds as well, not all on its own.


john r
my mother used to put it on the chest and neck areas of us kids and put a t shirt on before bed- it cut the cold and sniffels down by 70 to 80 %

Yep, Vicks works! Very good stuff for a cold, definatley put on chest, behind ears , above lip and bottom of a stuffy nose and bottom of feet. Works wonders!


madsmaha1
My daughter told me about this the other day... I'm dying to try it, although I don't want me or anyone I live with to have the cold/cough!!!

I will have to try this.


Ava
We tried this on my little niece but it did not help her at all. Maybe we just didn't put a thick enough coat on? I have a bad cough so I will try it myself tonight. Thanks. Knowing it worked for someone makes me willing to give it a try.

I prefer Mentholatum instead of Vick's Rub, but it is sometimes hard to find at stores. My grandmother swore by Mentholatum.

Never heard of that! But its interesting


angelr1790
It works great but for a chest cold, I rub it on my chest. If you do this be very careful not to go outside with it on you,You can get really sick.( like flu,phenomena) Make sure to wash it off before going outside if you have to go. But it does work,a vapor mist is good when using Vick's


mrphaka
will give it a try!


Blow at High Doe
I heard the same thing from my wife last week, honestly I thought it was just another "old wives' tale" (no pun intended).

Sounds like a good suggestion for Mythbusters to me.

I will definitely try it the next time I get cold.

Yes this works. It is the recommended treatment for toenail fungus too and a bunch of other things.
