What's the average size camphor tablet? I found square refined camphor tabs, about one square inch. Is half of that too much? Thanks

Hi Madison,

To get the best effect you should wrap it. Vicks is used as a way to tone skin, but the wrapping is used to sweat the skin which will help reduce the body fat. Of course a controlled, balanced diet and regular exercise are always the best ways to lose fat. Vicks is there to help with saggy areas, especially after dramatic weight loss.
