What is Mentholatum Vapour Rub?

Mentholatum Vapour Rub is ointment that is easy to use. It helps to relieve congestion so that you can breathe easily again, ideal for those suffering from a blocked nose or congestion in their throat or chest. Mentholatum Vapour Rub clears your airways and eases breathing.


What causes congestion?

Congestion is what happens when your body suffers from a build-up of mucus, otherwise known as catarrh. It usually affects the back of your nose and throat but can also affect your chest and sinuses. Some of the most common causes of congestion include:

  • Cold and flu
  • Hay fever and other allergies
  • Rhinitis (allergic or non-allergic inflammation in the nose)
  • Nasal polyps


How will this product help to clear my congestion?

Mentholatum Vapour Rub uses a combination of ingredients which work together to clear your airways and ease your congestion. These ingredients are:

  • Pure, natural menthol
  • Eucalyptus
  • Extracts of pine

These ingredients naturally clear your congestion, helping you to breathe more easily and relieving soreness.


Can Mentholatum Vapour Rub be used for anything else?

Although Mentholatum Vapour Rub is ideal for those suffering from congestion, it can also be used to ease many other ailments. Some of the other popular uses of this product include:

  • Muscular pain and stiffness
  • A backache
  • Sciatica
  • Lumbago
  • Fibrositis
  • Rheumatic pain
  • Bruises
  • Chilblains
  • Dry, chapped skin
  • Nettle rash
  • Insect bites and stings


How to use Mentholatum Vapour Rub

If you are suffering from a cold, catarrh, or hay fever, rub Mentholatum Vapour Rub liberally onto your chest, throat, and back. Apply 2 – 3 times a day for best results. Alternatively, you can melt one teaspoon of Mentholatum Vapour Rub in hot water and inhale the vapours, making sure not to get too close to hot steam to avoid scalds or burns. This can help to ease nasal congestion and make breathing easier.

You can’t get sick. You tell yourself this every year as you’re stocking up on vitamin C and hand sanitiser gel, you absolutely cannot get sick. And yet you do.

That's why we’ve asked our very own registered pharmacist, Shamir Patel, for some tips and tricks that will help you to make it through the winter months without catching the office cold.

It’s the middle of summer and you’re sniffing and sneezing and, frankly, feeling a bit gross.

But what’s going on here? Have you picked up an uncomfortable Summer cold, or are you suffering with hay fever?

There are a couple of ways to figure out what’s giving you the sneezes and the coughs, so let’s take a look at each condition and how you can tell them apart.

When you feel the effects of the common cold or flu, which you will as there’s no cure and it is contagious, you will be looking for relief from the symptoms. These include a blocked or a runny nose, a sore throat, sneezing, a headache, a raised temperature, or a cough. The good news is, there is a wide range of treatments out there that will help provide relief for these symptoms and help you get over the cold or flu.
