Homemade Decongestant Chest Rub - 1 TBS vaseline (or coconut oil if you're freaky about petroleum products). Add several drops (7-10) of eucalyptus oil until it is the strength you desire. Do yourself a favor and mix in a disposable cup with a popsicle stick. Stuff is impossible to clean off of a spoon or measuring cup.
Homemade Vapor Rub- make your own vapor rub with only 3 natural ingredients. It is so much safer for your young ones and it doesn't contain all of those nasty chemicals like store-bought versions do. -10-15 drops of essential oil for scent (eucalyptus, peppermint, rosemary, lavender, any combination, etc.) -1/2 cup of coconut oil or olive oil -1-2 tablespoons of beeswax pastilles, candelilla wax or palm shortening (it can be made without it, but it won’t be as thick.)

Homemade Vick’s Vapour Rub Recipe... I made this tonight but substituted the beeswax for soy wax to make it Vegan. It works SO WELL. I've slathered myself in it tonight and my sinuses are comfortable for the first time in a week. I've put it on the soles of my feet, with socks on top, for an extra boost to my immune system tonight.
