Everyone has heard of Vicks VapoRub but this commercial product is not always ideal with a history of even aggravating respiratory problems instead of treating them.
We have shared our tips and concerns on using Vicks VaporRub in an earlier post
along with a recipe for homemade chest rub.
But now we have found a less complicated recipe
And here it is:
- One tablespoon spoonful extra virgin coconut oil.
- Three drops lemon essential oil. (Our own Lemon Essential Oil is 100% pure and natural and of the highest quality. It is cold pressed from the peel of California lemons.) Lemon oil is such a favorite essential oil with its wonderful qualities and its fresh citrus aroma.
- Three drops eucalyptus essential oil or...
- An alternative for children under the age of ten years) three drops of melaleuca oil.
Mix all ingredients together and rub into your chest and upper back as needed.
