How to Make Your Own Natural Chest Rub - ECO. Modern Essentials

July 20, 2018 1

Winter can be a trying time for our immune systems and as the weather cools down, many of us are struck down by the dreaded cold or flu. A great way to ease chest and head congestion is by using a chest rub. Many store bought chest rubs contain nasty chemicals that can have a negative impact on your health. We've developed an all natural recipe that you can easily make at home, safe to use for the whole family.

Ingredients & Tools



Directions

  1. Add the coconut oil into glass mixing dish
  2. Add essential oils
  3. Mix together in bowl until everything is combined
  4. Scoop into clean jar, with air tight lid (make sure jar has been sterilised beforehand by soaking in hot water and tea tree essential oil)
  5. Allow mixture to re-solidify in room temperature or for easier use, just put in fridge until hard
  6. Store at room temperature - will last for a year. Please note: remember that coconut oil will melt in the summer so store in the fridge.


How to use

Rub on chest, back, neck and bottoms of feet.



Cautions: Do not apply on broken or sensitive skin, eyes, around mouth or anywhere directly on your face. Always do a patch test first.
