Vapor Rub

Seems like everyone I know has a cold right now.  I found a great recipe on crunchybetty.com for a homemade vapor rub.

Ingredients:
2 tsp beeswax (grated)
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
25-35 drops of peppermint essential oil
15 drops eucalyptus essential oil
10-15 drops rosemary essential oil

Melt the beeswax and olive oil together until smooth in a double boiler (or I used a Pyrex measuring cup in a pan of water). Stir well with a whisk. Continue whisking while adding the essential oils drop by drop. Transfer to a small lidded container. Store in a cool, dry place for up to a year. 

Use just as you would the store bought brand.

Love and peace,
