Homemade Vapor Rub

Cold and Flu season is in full swing this winter so it’s a good idea to have some vapor rub on hand. I used to use Vick’s Vapor Rub until I realized it had petroleum in it. Nasty! (We use non-petroleum  jelly also.) I decided it couldn’t be too difficult to make my own, so here we go. I was going to simply mix my non-petroleum jelly with a few drops of eucalyptus oil, but  wanted a slightly different texture. I decided to work with beeswax to achieve a thicker result. My homemade vapor rub cam out prefect. I love the texture, and it smells just like Vick’s. I have yet to try it, thank goodness, but I’m sure it will help relieve those little stuffy noses.

You will need:
1/4 c. Almond Oil
1Tbs. Beeswax pastilles
10 drops eucalyptus oil
10 drops peppermint oil

Method:
Melt the beeswax with the almond oil. Add essential oils and pour into an airtight container. I used little glass jars I bought at the health food store. You could use any mason jar, or tin you have on hand. Rub on little feet and chests to relieve congestion.
