HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN VAPOR RUB:
Considering how absorptive our skin is and even more so our children’s tender skin, it’s imperative that we are careful what we put on our bodies.
Here is how you can make your own vapor rub cream using organic coconut oil and eucalyptus essential oil. Coconut oil is a solid at room temperature, so measured out 2 Tablespoons and warm it until it is a liquid in a pan(about a minute and a half). Then add in 20 drops of the eucalyptus oil and mixed with a spoon. I like using RC or Eucalyptus Blue. (Make one of each and see which you like the best.) Once the mixture has returned to a solid, it smears on the skin just like any other vapor rub or cream.
