    WHAT IS VICKS VAPORUB?

    Vicks Vaporub is an ointment which contains menthol, eucalyptus and camphor which together provide a 4-in-1 relief from symptoms of cold and flu.

    Menthol and camphor help to ease a cough. Eucalyptus and menthol help relieve nasal congestion. Eucalyptus also helps relieve catarrh.

    Vicks Vaporub should always be used at the first sign of a cold to get maximum benefit.

    HOW TO USE VICKS VAPORUB?

    Adults – rub liberally over chest, back or throat. Cover whole area for maximum effect. Wear loose night clothes to allow vapours to be inhaled easily.

    OR

    Place hot (not boiling) water in a suitable bowl for inhalation. Melt 2 teaspoons of Vicks Vaporub into the bowl of hot water. Keep sufficient distance from mixture to avoid burning of the face by the vapours. Inhale for 10 to 15 minutes.
