Do you know you can enhance the color of henna applied on your hands by rubbing Vicks VapoRub on it? No, we’re not at all promoting the product but we just could not help from sharing with our readers all the amazing things that this wonder product can do. And I am not claiming all this just out of hearing it from anybody random, I have actually tried this for myself and yes it worked well.

Vicks VapoRub is not only for curing blocked nose and sore throat. It’s a multi-purpose soothing balm for curing many of the ailments you never thought of before.

Stretch marks are a real pain, mostly for the aged people and pregnant women. The primary ingredients help in getting rid of stretch marks with ease.
