You know that gooey stuff called vicks vaporub? Well it's been my family's best friend in past winters.
But I really don't like the idea of slathering petrolatum and synthetic camphor all over my girls' little bodies.
So here is my new, natural alternative.
|Eucalyptus Chest Rub|
1 part beeswax
4 parts oil
10-15 drops Pure Essential Eucalyptus oil
Melt oils and beeswax in a double boiler (I used a metal bowl in a saucepan (: )
The tricky part is getting the right consistency. I use the same beeswax for all my recipes so I know the consistency it creates. (not all beeswax is the same) You will have to experiment with this before you get it perfect.
Add your Chest rub to a container and you have a convenient and natural companion for those not-so-fun congested nights.
