Vaseline is a brand of petroleum jelly which was created way back in 1872 from the US by a chemist named Robert Cheesebrough, who realized that it had several different potential uses. Since then, it has become a go-to product all over the world. Now, it is a household name – and it’s not uncommon for people to maintain either a huge tub in a cabinet or a little, travel-size pot in a purse or a pocket.

Most people think of Vaseline as relieving dry, chapped lips – so much so that the company has even released special pots aimed at lip care through the years. However, what many individuals are unaware of is how many other things Vaseline can be used for – from putting imperfections around the home and removing stains to enhancing your appearance and even healing ailments.
