It’s time for another genuinely unexpected VapoRub hack. Some may see this as a great gospel of the century; however, many (like us) might raise a brow. Control those horse hormones! Any equestrian will mention the struggles of keeping a horse focused when it’s that time of the season and they are looking for some horseplay.
Horses are triggered by the release of pheromones from other horses and can become easily distracted by their impulse to try and start a family. Some equestrians use a light dab of VapoRub on their horses’ noses to confuse the scent of other horses around. Giddyup!
Let nature take its course. This is worthless.
VapoRub has been shown to help significantly in soothing strained and aching muscles after strenuous activity, but there is a chance that it could help prevent strain and everything related to it. This ointment has magical ways, apparently. The cooling effect of the menthol helps keep the muscle relaxed and, as a result, eases the resistance of the workout movement.
The muscle still works to maximum effect but has a bit of help in doing so. The camphor, menthol, and eucalyptus will definitely not count towards any performance-enhancing substances, so all the bodybuilders are safe and secure!
Do you want to take your workout to the max? This is worth it.
Don’t let the snail assail your plants! VapoRub can form an impenetrable barrier for snails. Only use this hack on potted plants. Rub a good dollop of VapoRub on the edges of plant holders and ONLY the holders. Snails will stay far, far away from the menthol scent.
Do not rub VapoRub on any plant itself, including the leaves, stalks, or branches, as this will most certainly cause damage to the plant. A light greasing around the plant holder rim is more than enough to repel any voracious bugs. With this hack, we promise you not even one snail will be trespassing.
Want to get the snails away from your plants? This is worth it.
Dark spots on your skin can pose a real cosmetic challenge. These spots, sometimes splotchy and sometimes looking like a flat mole, pose no immediate health risks, but many would rather they disappear. There are a number of self-aided treatments that try to deal with eliminating them once and for all, and VapoRub is usually featured on the home remedy list.
It is not advised to apply VapoRub over large areas of the skin, as this can cause acne. However, if this is not a risk, then a gentle massaging of the VapoRub into the dark spot may help lighten it. What do you think? Are you planning on giving this a try? Well, don't.
Don't give up on your monthly facial. This is worthless.
The causes of hair loss are diverse, and a number of factors can contribute to thinning hair. According to some sources, if your hair loss is not genetic, there might be some salvation. The camphor is reported to assist with blood circulation. Simple logic dictates better blood flow, which means far happier follicles.
The eucalyptus oil, acting as an antibacterial, can clear the hair pores and encourage new hair growth. Doctors are less convinced, though, and so are we. If this hack were to be so revolutionary, we feel like hair clinics would be going out of business.
