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!

Natural Chest Rub Recipe


1 x bottle of fractionated coconut oil

10-15 drops eucalyptus essential oil

10 drops peppermint essential oil

10 drops tea tree essential oil

10-15 drops lavender essential oil

Glass dish

Spoon for mixing

Glass jar to store chest rub (a sealable lid is best to keep the chest rub fresh)


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. Store at room temperature - will last for a year.

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.
