It’s winter, and that means one thing: colds. But this woman has revealed how she used a candle warmer to fill her house with Vick’s Vapor Rub to help ease her family's cold symptoms – and others are trying it.

One word sums up this hack, "Genius." @NurseNunci

But many have pointed out that you can follow this hack instead of melting down a jar of Vicks because you don’t want to pay for an actual Vicks-infused candle or Vicks diffuser. You can purchase a candle warmer for under $10 and then use that to melt some of your favorite Vicks products into oil.

"Vicks makes a plug in diffuser with refill strips .I use them every time my kids get sick. It usually works for the house lol." @Ashley C

If you're like some folks, you'll want to use this right away. "Terrific idea, I’m going to try this ASAP." @J.Rai

If there's one thing we know about life as adults, it's that sometimes we need a little break from our busy days—especially when things get stressful or overwhelming here and there (and even more especially when things get stressful). 

So if one day feels especially rough after coming home from work, try lighting some candles around the house with Vick’s Vapor Rub mixed into them—it'll help lift spirits while providing relief throughout long-term symptoms such as coughing and congestion (which makes sense since Vick’s Vapor Rub contains menthol).
