Is that Eau de Eucalyptus Oil we smell? This is an interesting hack and one that might need a few trial-and-error tests. Smear a tiny bead of VapoRub onto the wrist and then spritz with your chosen perfume.
Use as little VapoRub as possible, as the menthol will mess with the original perfume smell. The petroleum jelly will cause the perfume to stay moist and not evaporate as quickly as it would on bare skin. Test this out extensively so as not to arrive at your date smelling like VapoRub.
For any VapoRub hackers who may try this quick-fix out, we suggest that you time it accordingly so as not to smell like a walking jar of Vicks! VapoRub is excellent for moisturizing the skin, and the skin on the scalp is no different. If your scalp is dry and itchy, a generous slathering of VapoRub could reduce some of the symptoms.
The moisturizing effect of the petroleum jelly could get to work right away and prevent further dandruff and dead skin from snowing down. This is best done on a day not leaving the house or right before bedtime.
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 equals 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. Maybe keep that deposit for a wig!
Ward Off the Warts
Warts occur when a simple virus finds a comfy spot and causes an excess of keratin to grow, trapping fluid and causing a painless yet uncomfortable and unsightly growth to form on the skin.
Numerous VapoRub hackers attest to slathering the wart in VapoRub and wrapping it. Some people even tend to use duct tape for this purpose! Warts are persistent critters, so the wrapping will have to be changed once to twice daily over a period of about a week to be effective.
Let Pets Eat in Peace
Save the ants! And the hassle of dealing with wasted pet food. Pets that are fed outside always have to contend with opportunistic ants seeking food. Pet bowls can swarm with the critters in a matter of minutes if leftovers are in the bowl.
Make sure your pooch has leftovers by rubbing VapoRub on the outer edges of the bottom of the bowl. The smell will repel any curious ant and also prevent them from walking up the bowl. Do not rub the VapoRub on the top edges of the bowl. The smell will be too strong for your canine companions.
