DIY Homemade Vapor-Rub

  • 1/2 cup olive oil, coconut oil, or almond oil
  • 2 level tablespoons of beeswax pastilles
  • 20 drops eucalyptus oil
  • 20 drops peppermint oil
  • 10 drops rosemary oil
  • 10 drops cinnamon or clove oil (optional)

Melt the beeswax with oil of choice in a double boiler until just melted. Add the essential oils (use half the amount for a bay version or dilute with coconut oil before using). Stir until well mixed and pour into some type of container with a lid to store. Use as needed to help soothe coughing and congestion. Note: can also make with the herbs instead of oils by infusing the oil with 1 tablespoon of each of the herbs in a double boiler over medium heat for two hours.
