VICKS VaporRub .. WHO KNEW!!

VICKS VapoRub - INTERESTING

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 soles of your feet,
cover with socks, and the 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 chemicals in them This method of using Vicks VapoRub on
the soles of the feet was found to be more effective than prescribed
medicines for children at bed time. In addition it seems 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.So she went from; every few seconds
uncontrollable coughing, she slept cough-free for hours every night she
used it.


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

DON'T SHUN THIS ONE.. TRY IT THE NEXT TIME YOU GET A
BAD COLD.
THE ONLY THING YOU CAN LOSE IS YOUR COUGH..

    I'll try and remember that for the next time I get a cold. The plus is it probably softens your feet too!

    Who knew? I'll have to get a fresh jar & try it out. (the one in the medicine cabinet was there when I moved in 24 years ago - probably out of date by now.) emoticon Thanks for the tip, Joan.
