For as long as I can remember, Vick’s Vapor Rub has been a medicine cabinet staple item in our home. It instantly opened our sinuses and made it easier to sleep throughout the night. But as I grow older, I’ve started searching for clean, natural alternatives. Here’s a recipe for an all-natural soothing chest rub that you’re in control of! I don’t know about you, but I always take pride in knowing exactly what goes into the products I’m using.
The coconut oil in this recipe serves as a base that will not only dilute the oils and help them smooth on applied areas, but it will also absorb into and hydrate the skin!
The combination of Simply Earth’s Breathe Easy blend, Peppermint oil and Eucalyptus oil is a great nasal decongestant home remedy you can make so you can breathe all day and night!
All Natural Chest Rub
Ingredients (for a small jar):
- ¼ c. pressed coconut oil
- 10 drops Breathe Easy blend
- 5 drops Peppermint essential oil
- 5 drops Eucalyptus essential oil
Simply add the drops of essential oils to your coconut oil and stir until it’s evenly combined. Place your mixture into a small jar and store in a cool, dry place.
This cleaner version of a soothing chest rub is so quick and simple to make! You could make it in the fraction of the time that it takes you to run to the store to grab a less-natural jar of vapor rub.
Say goodbye to stuffy noses!
