Vicks VapoRub and Sore Muscles

By Safety Mom

Late February and March are probably my least favorite times of the year.  It’s really a big tease from Mother Nature.  Just when you think the snow is out of the way and we’re home free another storm rolls in.  I easily could have given up my gym membership this year with all of the shoveling and “ice breaking” I’ve done.  I’ve had muscle aches in areas I didn’t even know I had muscles!

One thing I learned this season is that Vicks VapoRub isn’t just for kids’ colds like I used to assume.  I recently learned that I can use it on my sore muscles as well. Now,

I swear by Vicks VapoRub for everything and at night before bed, I use it on all of aches and pains. It doesn’t have that burning after effect that so many other muscle creams have and the smell is soothing instead of overpowering.  It can be used on my kids’ sore muscles too. Vicks VapoRub has Menthol and Eucalyptus Oil, which helps soothe sore muscles and increase circulation. Rub a little on before bed and you’ll wake up feeling as good as new!

  1. If you have problems with chapped hands, apply the Vicks cream once or twice a day, and your chapped hands will heal. Just be careful to keep your hands away from your eyes, because it is a medicated cream, and can cause your eyes to burn.
