Vicks Vaporub in Nose?

Has anyone tried putting a dab of Vicks Vaporub inside the nose to relieve nasal congestion?

MY nose is blocked at night, and I can't breathe, and I have poor sleep function.

Has anyone tried putting some inside the nasal passages?

I know it's not recommended because Camphor, one of the active ingredients is toxic if absorbed by the body.

Is there a way to make a home made Vicks Vaporub without the Camphor?

Re: Vicks Vaporub in Nose?

I wouldn't, the camphor and menthol would burn like heck.

I have found that if I irrigate about an hour before bed, that helps a lot. When it's really horrible, a bit of Afrin works well, too.
