Store-bought Vapor Rubs are full of nasty carcinogenic chemicals such as turpentine, petroleum and many more. You want that stuff no where near your body! Here is how to make a natural decongestant Vapor Rub!

Eucalyptus essential oil  is great for your sinuses. It increases the amount of oxygen that your respiratory system absorbs, which then improves your circulation and gives oxygen to all cells in your body.

Peppermint essential oil helps to clear your passageways by stimulating your cold receptors. It can also regenerate and restore your immune system and will initially give you a cooling sensation, but soon the menthol in the oil will warm your skin.

Ingredients:

Or if you don’t have these two e.o, just use:

Method:

  1. Place the beeswax, shea butter and olive oil in a heatproof glass jar/jug
  2. Place the jar in a water bath and allow everything to melt
  3. Once melted, allow the mixture to cool down for a lil while
  4. Add the essential oils and stir well
  5. Pour the mixture in a small jar and use whenever needed!
