Homemade Chest Rub
Always consult your doctor before use or intake. I am not a doctor or medically trained physician.
We are still in the cold and flu season and while I have nothing against modern medicine and we use medicine when needed I prefer to keep chemicals to an absolute minimum. So one thing I can do is replace over the counter items for symptom relief with my Young Living Essential Oils, Juice Plus+ and other chemical free items. While I love the benefit of chest rubs, the chemicals…not so much. So I used a fabulous trifecta of oils to create the same thing minus the icky stuff – Lemon, Eucalyptus, and Peppermint. These are great for the Winter and Fall Season!
- ¼ cup coconut oil
- 8-10 drops Eucalyptus essential oil
- 8-10 drops Lemon essential oil
- 8-10 drops Peppermint essential oil
- Stir coconut oil and essential oils together until very well mixed. You can do this by hand with a spoon or spatula, or with a hand or stand mixer.
- Apply to chest, below nose and alongside nose- take care to avoid eyes. I also suggest putting this on the bottom of your feet and then slipping on some socks – trust me!
This rub is safe to apply as needed throughout the day.
I recommend storing in a glass jar like a small mason jar because lemon will break down plastic and release toxins into your mixture. This mixture will melt in hot temperatures, I keep mine in the bathroom and it has only softened very little.
