Do You Even Want To Believe This?

CJ’s Rant on Vick’s VapoRub

The other day I commented on someone’s page saying that I too was under the weather and listed all of the remedies I’m using to fight off this ick of a cough thing I’ve got and it’s been on my mind again so I had to go back and post this comment a little after the fact……thank you @plotlessone for engaging with me on the cold remedy thing……here you go

      1. I’m back to this thread b/c this has been on my mind….two things actually #1 I’m going to see my dr. on Monday and since I’m combining this “coughing to the point of peeing my pants” thing with my 6 month check up to make sure I’m not getting old too quickly, I went to have blood drawn for a lab workup. After that I stopped at CVS for more Ricolaaaaaaaaa but decided they’re far too expensive and don’t exactly suppress this coughing I’m doing, surely I can make my own, but that’s another story for another day, I was also looking for the old Vicks VapoRub and had to really search for it in CVS…it’s not right out there next to all the NyQuil’s and Tylenol’s and Mucinex’s and the like and guess what – the big jar of VapoRub – oMG, this is even better than in the store – I just checked the price online to make sure I wasn’t pissing in the wind here and telling you that the larger jar of the stuff was over $11 but I just found it online for fucking sixteen fucking dollars….and do you want to know what’s in it? Thought so, here ya go: Active Ingredients: Camphor (4%), Eucalyptus Oil (1.2%), Menthol (2.6%). Inactive Ingredients: Cedarleaf Oil, Nutmeg Oil, Special Petrolatum, Thymol, Turpentine Oil.
        No, you do not need to visit the eye doctor – our parents were rubbing our chests with goo containing turpentine oil and I’ve continued to do so to myself all these years….no more. Sixteen fucking dollars for six ounces of vaseline with a little essential oil and some turpentine…did my grandfather make this in his garage? come on….$16????? I’m back to drinking can you tell????
