- Vicks VapoRub
- Baking soda
Crush the camphor tablet and mix it with the other ingredients until you form a paste, which you should store in a plastic container. Apply the paste on the problematic areas before going to bed and massage in circular motion, then wrap the area with plastic wrap and leave it overnight. Use the method while resting at home or while you exercise.
