Today I’m going to show you a cool recipe on how to make Vaporub in your home.
This is so damn easy that it is almost embarrassing.
- 1/2 cup Coconut Oil ( I use Tropical Traditions but any brand will work)
- 15 drops Eucalyptus Essential Oil
- 15 drops Peppermint Essential Oil
- 15 drops Rosemary Essential Oil
- 10 drops Cedarwood Essential Oils
Put your coconut oil in a bowl and add the essential oils. Get out a fork or whip and mix them together until light and fluffy. If your home is on the cool side, the coconut oil will be quite firm and whipping it up a bit will soften it nicely.
Note that if you have the luxury of time, put the jar of coconut oil in a pan of hot water on the stove and leave it there until it melts.
I did not have the luxury of time so I used my stick blender to whip up the coconut oil and essential oils and was pleased with the results.
When your Healing Vapor Rub is soft, fluffy, and to your liking, transfer it to a small, clean jar and you are done.
That’s it. Were you expecting something more difficult?
How to Use DIY Healing Vapor Rub
Generously rub your DIY Healing Vapor Rub all over the chest and neck area every three to four hours. Also rub some on the bottoms of both feet. If stuffiness is a problem and is making breathing difficult, put a little dab on the upper lip to help clear the nasal passages.
