I Love the Smell of Vaporub

    Vaporub has a nice smell, but I only want to smell it when I'm not feeling well. It's especially nice when I have a stuffed up nose, it really seems to help start clearing it up!

    Just Like Mom Rubbed On My Chesat

    I am addicted to this stuff.  I even carry a Vick's inhaler in my purse so I can sniff it throughout the day.  It clears my sinuses and just smells so awesome. When I smell it then I am reminded of childhood.

     My first memory of Vaporub is from middle school. For some reason we always had a tub in the house and I discovered that I loved the smell. It was rare that I actually put it on my skin because I did not like the burn. Instead I would untwist the cap and take deep breathes...
