    Vapor Rub- ok/primal? (not to eat)

    Not sure this is the right forum for this question but not sure where else to post it.

    What are thoughts on using vicks vapor rub when you have a bit of a cold/flu and are congested and coughing? Seems to offer some mild relief and loosen up some of the congestion.

    The listed ingredients: camphor, menthol, and eucalyptus oil all plant derived and do not seem to be overly processed.

    I think you're overthinking this primal thing...
    lol

    If it makes you feel better, use it. Get some rest, too. For pete's sake, drink some bone broth!

    Grok didn't have Walgreens!

    Really? Is Vapor Rub primal? Is the computer you typed that question with primal? Use the damn Vapor Rub. Pretend it is herbal scented animal lard or something.

    Seriously. If you break a leg and need surgery to reset it, pain killer is not primal but I don't think you'll say no to it. Use the damn vaporub. I limit my primal lifestyle to what I put in my mouth (no dirty jokes, please )

    Use the %$@& vapor rub. If you're so inclined, once you're feeling better, make your own.
    Most people don't realize how much energy it takes for me to pretend to be normal.

    If I wanted to listen to an asshole, I'd fart.

    Fer fuck's sake. If it makes you feel better, use it. God knows Grok would've if he could've.

    It's unanimous. You're overthinking things. Use the vapor rub.

    Why don't everyone jump down the OP's throat at once! Its a legit question. Symptoms are your bodies way of getting well and are integral to the process.

    That said we use vicks vapor rub for the kids, but draw the line and will not use cough syrups or decongestants. Vicks gives plenty of relieve without being a suppressant of the innate immune response.

    Maybe this shouldn't have been worded as "is it Primal"....but still worth answering.
