  • What users have to say about Vicks VapoRub Ointment

    It was first marketed under the name "Vicks Magic Croup Salve" in 1905, but a family member created it back in 1890, copying the ingredients of French Ben-Gay.

    It works wonders, like opening the sinuses, making sleep possible, and being funny to surprise-smear someone, all with the help of this little bottle.

    The VaboRub helped me with my earache by keeping the cotton ball out of my ear.

    If you use the Vicks Vaporub you can remove the stuck on the henna paste and make it darker on your hands.

    I have been using this product for a long time because it works for me, and I have horrible allergies all year round. I have horrible allergies all year round-so my nose gets stuffed pretty much where I have trouble breathing through my nose, especially at night.



    What is the expiry date?


    It is Oct 2019. I received a jar that expired in 2015, but I don't know if it will last long.


    I was suggested to dissolve "a glob" in boiling water and breathe the vapors to relieve congestion. How much water does it take to make a gallon of oil?


    I used a towel over my head and a pot of 1/2-3/4 full. It worked longer than putting essential oils in the pot.


    Is the bottle glass or plastic?


    The bottle has no expiration date.


    What about the product?


    My Mother and Grandmother used this product on me when I had colds.


    What is the expiration date if I place my order on April 15?


    It will probably be good until sometime in 2020 or later.
