DIY Vapor Rub: Winter Wellness


5 T Coconut Oil
2 T Shea butter
2 T beeswax

1.  Melt over a double broiler for approximately 20 minutes.  (This will fill approx. 2 2-oz jars.)
2.  Carefully add 4 Tablespoons of the melted liquid to a glass jar.  Allow to cool for about 3 minutes.
3.  I encourage you to experiment and try the essential oils that work best for you!  But, here is the combination that I ended up using:     
        20 drops Eucalyptus*
        10 drops Peppermint*
        5 drops Raven*
4.  Stir using the metal spoon.
5.  Allow to cool and attach label

*Not all essential oils are created equally. Most essential oils that you buy in stores are not pure and could do harm if applied topically, breathed in or ingested.  Do your research as to which oils are safe.  I have spent hours upon hours of looking into Young Living and I fully trust their process in extracting essential oils without harsh chemicals or high temperatures.  
There are a lot of essential oils mentioned in this post and most of them come in a fabulous starter kit.  Want to know where to get them?  Follow this link HERE.  Be sure to check it out!
