DIY Essential Oil Vapor Rub

It's pollen season. My boy's nose is all kinds of stuffed. And I need a topical solution when allergy meds aren't cutting it. Sound familiar?! Here's's a non-toxic form of a vapor rub, you can make right at home and know every last ingredient, plus you can pronounce every word ;). Just saying!

Enjoy! And share with a friend.

Ingredients: 1/4 cup Coconut Oil 1/4 cup Olive Oil or other Carrier Oil 1 heaping TBSP Beeswax 30 drops Eucalyptus Essential Oil 20 drops Peppermint Essential Oil 15 drops Rosemary Essential Oil Jar or Tin for Storing


  1. Fill a medium sauce pan 1/2 way with water. Heat on medium-high to boil.

  2. Place a glass pyrex bowl with a spout in the water and add your oils (coconut, olive, and beeswax).

  3. Allow oils and wax to melt, then remove from heat and add essential oils.

  4. Mix.

  5. Place into a 4 oz jar and allow to cool.

  6. Seal.

  7. Enjoy!

Happy DIYing,
