Have your ever wondered what is really in Vicks Vapor that so many of us have or still use when we are stuffed up or have a cold coming on ? Well let me just share what is in it :
The active ingredients in Vicks VapoRub are camphor (a cough suppressant and topical analgesic), eucalyptus oil (a cough suppressant) and methol (a cough suppressant and topical analgesic). The inactive ingredients in Vicks VapoRub include cedarleaf oil, nutmeg oil, petrolatum, thymol and turpentine oil.
Wow !! the only good thing I see good is eucalyptus oil. Do you really want to rub petrolatum on your body..... I certainly don't , not when I can make my own !
Note - that yes some essential oils are not recommended for young children or pregnant women. But if you don't have any health issues and you aren't either of these listed. Check with your health provider and it should be fine to use.
I have used organic oils and pure essential oils to make this wonderful blend to help with your stuffy nose or cold. All you need to do is apply to chest or neck area when needed for relief . Always keep away from heat.
Ingredients: Organic Coconut oil (cocoa nucifera) Pure beeswax ( Vera Alba ), Pure Vitamin E, Pure essential oils of eucalyptus, peppermint, lavender and rosemary.
Comes in a 2.0 oz 56g round tin with lid , always keep in cool dry area when your not using to preserve it.
I know you will enjoy using a all natural rub that doesn't have any harmful chemicals in it, Naturally made sure to make you feel better !!
