Winter Wellness Vapor Rub
No one likes dealing with seasonal illness and congestion, especially kids just starting to enjoy some time off school. Having a soothing Winter Wellness Vapor Rub on hand when it hits makes for a quick recovery so we can get back to all of the holiday and winter fun. Sweet almond oil, beeswax, and shea butter make a smooth, balm-likeconsistency that is easy to apply and allows the essential oils to be easily absorbed into the skin. Peppermint, spearmint, eucalyptus, and lavender essential oils combine to create a soothing yet invigorating aroma that may help to break up congestion, clear the sinuses, and ease pain and inflammation.
- 3 oz of Sweet Almond Oil
- 1/2 oz of Beeswax Pearls
- 1/2 oz of Unrefined Shea Butter
- 20 drops of Distiller’s Edition Single Batch Peppermint Oil
- 20 drops of Distiller’s Edition Single Batch Spearmint Oil
- 20 drops of Eucalyptus Essential Oil
- 20 drops of Lavender Essential Oil
Add beeswax and shea butter to a heat-safe bowl and place on top of a pot with a few inches of water in it. Bring the water to a boil and stir until fully melted. Remove from heat and stir in sweet almond oil and essential oil blend. Pour immediately into your container of choice, metal tins or small shallow jars work best. Allow to cool and harden for several hours before using.
To use, gently massage a small amount of product into the chest to ease congestion.
