Every year there is a peak winter period in Australia where there are endless occurrences of cold, cough and flu symptoms. In fact this season some individuals are experiencing these symptoms for longer time frame and are not recovering from this for almost 8 weeks at a stretch.
We at Aroma Magic Australia did a fun activity of making our own small little individual size natural vapour rub. Why to go on putting chemically derived vapour rub on your beautiful and precious skin? When you can make your own small little pot of natural vapour rub within few minutes. Easy, Safe, Simple & most important natural.
Here is a simple and quick recipe which we made with Aroma Magic essential oil range and the menthol relief from this vapour rub is amazing.
You will require the following:
- 15 drops of essential oil for scent You can mix the following essential oils: eucalyptus, peppermint, rosemary and lavender.
-1/2 cup of coconut oil
-1-2 tablespoons of beeswax pastilles, candelilla wax or palm shortening (you can also make the vapour rub without this, that is what we chose to do :-) )
How to make the vapour rub:
- Melt the coconut oil until warm and in a complete liquid consistency. Let it cool for few minutes.
- Add any combination of drops of essential oils (from above list) according to personal preference.
- Stir with a disposable spatula and pour in a small air tight container. Label with date made.
- Let the oils cool and set for few hours.
(See the pic attached for the end result. Also when using pure essential oils always dilute the oils in a carrier oil like we have done here before applying).
