Treating the symptoms of a cold is really easy if you take an over-the-counter product. If you are not a fan of using store bought medications like vapor rub, then a homemade solution is the best alternative. There is an easy way you can use to make natural vapor rub at home.
Essential oils are essential ingredients that are used when making a natural vapor rub. They are found online at sites like Amazon and at most health stores. A double boiler will be used to melt and to blend all of the ingredients.
Coconut Oil (Virgin Variety) – ¼ cup
Bees Wax – 1 tablespoon
Eucalyptus Essential Oil – 25 drops
Lavender Essential Oil – 10 drops
Pour your natural vapor rub mixture into a small glass jar or another container like a lip balm jar. Once the mixture has cooled and hardened, then it is ready to use to treat the symptoms of a cold.
