  • Procter & Gamble lists the following active ingredients in Vicks VapoRub: camphor (4.8 percent) menthol (2.6 percent) eucalyptus oil (1.2 percent)

    It also contains several inactive ingredients that may be responsible for some of its popular uses:

    cedarleaf oil.
    nutmeg oil.
    petrolatum.
    thymol.
    turpentine oil.

    You could try special nonmedicated rub for babies 3 months and older, called Baby rub.
    This product contains fragrances and aloe in a petroleum jelly base but does not contain camphor oil. The blend is dubbed as a “soothing ointment” that contains fragrances of eucalyptus, rosemary, and lavender.
