Homemade vapor rub

Natural Cures & Prevention
If you're looking for a chemical and petroleum free chest rub to relieve breathing and aid in sleep, look no further. This is so very simple to make, is gentle and soothing, and works a treat.
2 tablespoons grated beeswax
Half a cup of olive oil
30 drops eucalyptus oil
30 drops peppermint oil
10 drops lavender oil
5 drops tea tree oil
After grating your beeswax, add it to a bowl or jug double-boiler style on a very low heat.
Add the olive oil and allow the beeswax to melt into the oil, stirring occasionally (this process will take 6 - 8 minutes).
Once the beeswax has melted, take off the heat and allow to cool slightly then whisk in your essential oils.
Pour the mix into a dry storage container and allow it to set.
Use as you would whenever colds and flu hit the family.
This remedy is not suitable for pregnant women, or children under 2 years of age. Eucalyptus oil in particular, can cause dangerous neural reactions in babies and toddlers.
