It’s fall! So it’s time to do more things to keep above the wellness line. Among these things are being religious about taking our probiotic (Young Living’s Life 9), applying thieves essential oil multiple times a day, taking thieves vitality internally, and using this natural vapor rub.
Store bought vapor rubs contain an ingredients that are considered carcinogenic, man made forms of menthol (synthetic fragrance is real bad for ya), and petroleum jelly which was first found at the bottom of oil rigs. Not necessarily something that I want to slather on myself. If you don’t know, you don’t know. People do the best they know how. I grew up using this stuff .🤷🏽♀️
Thankfully there is usually a natural and healthier alternative to mainstream products. Annnnnd another win is no plastic waste! I have been trying to be more aware of the waste that we produce. We generally don’t eat out of or drink out of plastic because of the health risks anyway, so its a win for us and a win for our earth.
So without further ado…
You will need:
Coconut Oil (as your base, which also happens to have tons of benefits in and of itself)
Raven Essential Oil (a great respiratory and immune support blend)
Lemon Essential Oil (immune supporting, excretory system supporting)
Eucalyptus Essential Oil (helps support respiratory function)
& Tea Tree Essential Oil (an oil that is known for cleansing)
4 oz. Mason (or other canning) Jar
If you are not yet a member with Young Living, I am your plug! Go HERE to get your kit now.
Measure out 4oz of coconut oil
I just scooped mine into the mason and then transferred it over to a bowl for mixing
Add 10 drops of each oil (depending on your preference)
Use a metal whisk to mix
Mix until all contents have been blended together well
Transfer back to mason jar and allow to harden
Apply as needed 🙂
I hope you enjoy your final product! Let me know what your thoughts are and how yours turned out. I can’t wait to hear from you!
