Using Some Old Time Remedies To Stop Current Problems -

vicksvaporubVicks VapoRub For Stopping Coughs

Here’s a unique application for Vicks VapoRub.

Scientists found that you can stop night time coughing in a child by putting a generous amount of Vicks VaporRub on the soles of their feet before they go to bed.

Make sure they put socks on. The researchers found that a heavy, deep coughing will stop in about 5 minutes and stay stopped for many hours. It also seemed to have a soothing and calming effect on the sick child allowing them to sleep soundly.

It seems to be the camphor that makes this work. For kids, it is even more effective than very strong prescription cough medicines. This method seems to also work for adults.

So you’ve got a nasty cough that’s making it difficult to sleep?. Try the remedy that your grandma or great grandma may have used.  Keep in mind that the nice thing is you’ll know if it worked in 5 minutes.

If you have plantar warts and you don’t want them cut out, you can use this remedy:  Put a banana in a freezer and then each night cut off a small piece of the banana skin. Put it on the wart and cover it with a bandage. While it will take a while, the wart will come off.  For some moles, use Cold-Pressed Castor Oil and put a bandage on it – change 3 times per day.
