Never tried that. I take a shot of whiskey with maple syrup. There's never any left to rub on my feet.You're right .. I've seen that. .. But in general the stuff is good for so many uses.
One thing ... ever have a nagging bad cough that keeps you up at night? .. Rubbing Vicks on the bottom of your feet and putting on a pr. of lightweight cotton socks will work wonders in stopping the cough and letting you sleep.
So do I. It’s my go-to when I have a cold. Slather it all over my chest at night. I don’t use it during the day when I’m working because the smell can be a bit off-putting. So I have a small vial of pure eucalyptus oil and I put a few drops of that on my handkerchief to help keep my nose from plugging up during the day.I have a jar in my medicine cabinet right now.
My mother used it on me all the time when I got sick as a kid, so what do they know?
The main ingredients are camphor and eucalyptus oil.I can't stand the smell of that stuff! If anyone tried to put it on me, they'd be in big trouble. Even as a little kid, it smelled terrible, to me. Good for attending autopsies, I've heard.
