    VICKS VapoRub - INTERESTING
    During a lecture on Essential Oils, they told us how the foot soles can absorb oils. Their example: Put garlic on your feet and within 20 minutes you can 'taste' it.

    Some of us have used Vicks VapoRub for years for everything from chapped lips to sore toes and many body parts in between. But I've never heard of this. And don't laugh, it works 100% of the time, although the scientists who discovered it aren't sure why. To stop night time coughing in a child (or adult as we found out personally), put Vicks VapoRub generously on the soles of your feet, cover with socks, and the heavy, deep coughing will stop in about 5 minutes and stay stopped for many, many hours of relief. Works 100% of the time and is more effective in children than even very strong prescription cough medicines. In addition it is extremely soothing and comforting and they will sleep soundly.

    Just happened to tune in A.M. Radio and picked up this guy talking about why cough medicines in kids often do more harm than good, due to the chemicals in them. This method of using Vicks VapoRub on the soles of the feet was found to be more effective than prescribed medicines for children at bed time. In addition it seems to have a soothing and calming effect on sick children who then went on to sleep soundly.

    My wife tried it on herself when she had a very deep constant and persistent cough a few weeks ago and it worked 100%! She said that it felt like a warm blanket had enveloped her, coughing stopped in a few minutes. So she went from; every few seconds uncontrollable coughing, she slept cough-free for hours every night she used it.

    If you have grandchildren, pass this on. If you end up sick, try it yourself and you will be amazed at how it works.
    DON'T SHUN THIS ONE.. TRY IT THE NEXT TIME YOU GET A BAD COLD. THE ONLY THING YOU CAN LOSE IS YOUR COUGH..

    This was sent to me by my DC who also gave me the "Perfect Binding" tute and that sure works!

    I was a strange kid because I LOVED Vicks. (my kids always ran away when I tried to put it on them).
    I could take a bath in it even today.
    But I'd never heard about rubbing it on the soles of feet instead of on the chest or upper lip.
    I'll have to try it next time I get a cold.

    My husband had a horrible night cough last week. I bought the store brand "Vick's" and told him to put it on his feet before bed and then put socks on. He thought I was nuts (nothing new) but did it. No cough that night! And the next day he felt great. I can't believe this. So wish my mom had known this instead of slathering it all over my chest as a kid LOL
