    I like many others use this product when I have a cold/flu. Lately, I've tried it for muscle aches and it works beautifully. It also makes a great sleeping aid. I apply it topically before bed and sleep well through the night. It helps me to relax and fall comfortably to sleep.

    The old Vicks was WONDERFUL!! This new version...they must have changed the formula because it does NOT smell the same, and doesn't seem to have the same benefits as the "old" Vicks. Sad.

        I love it! It's especially great for the kids. I rub it on my toddler's feet while he is sleeping and having trouble breathing (stuffed nose) and put the socks on. Works like charm.

                Comments about Vicks VapoRub Topical Ointment, 1.76 oz:

                I have been using Vicks for years and years and I find it most effective and soothing when my nose is "stuffed up" or I have chest congestion....My mother used it for years, so, I was introduced to it many years ago.
                The smell is extremely soothing also.
