Vicks VapoRub uses Eucalyptus Oil, Menthol and Camphor as active ingredients. It provides effective multi-symptom relief from aggravating cold symptoms when used in either of these two ways:
1) As rub on massage for temporary relief from dry coughs and muscular aches due to colds. Vicks VapoRub contains cough suppressants.
So if you want your loved one’s dreams to remain undisturbed, gently apply Vicks VapoRub on chest and throat before bedtime.
2) As medicated vapour to relieve nasal congestion. (For 6 years and above).
Add 2 teaspoonfuls of Vicks VapoRub in a bowl of hot (not boiling) water and inhale the vapours to clear blocked nose and ease breathing difficulties.
