Menthol Vicks Plant Herb Plant Plectranthus tomentosa Live Plant


While you cannot grow your own Vick’s Vapor Rub, you can grow a plant that smells like the product. This plant is called the Vick’s plant or Plectranthus tomentosa. The Vick’s plant is a perennial that can survive in temperatures that drop to around 20 degrees Fahrenheit or USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 9a. It is considered a succulent that can be planted in the landscape or in a container garden. To plant in the garden space, choose a location that is sunny or partially shady. Also, the soil will need to be of loamy texture with a pH that ranges between 6.1 to 7.8. For proper air circulation, space plants every 24 to 36 inches. It also grows well in the house and can be propagated by taking a cutting and putting the stem in a hole in the soil. No rooting hormone needed. Because of the potential for freezing temperatures in your area, this plant will only be shipped between April 1 and October 15. Medicinal uses include putting a few leaves in a pot of boiling water and inhaling the steam. It can also be made into a tea or infused oil and added to balms. Infused oil can also be used as a massage oil for sore muscles.
