Autumn is officially here and that means that cold & flu season could start peeking it's head around the corner at any moment. Prepare for the winter months ahead by making your own Breathe Balm (homemade vapor rub) so that you'll be ready whenever you or someone you love comes down with a cold.
This recipe uses all natural and cruelty free (vegan) ingredients. Camphor granules together with essential oils of eucalyptus, fir needle and peppermint, create a soothing decongestant for your chest and stuffy head.
Using a double broiler, melt the coconut oil, olive oil and carnauba wax together. Then stir in the camphor granules and essential oils. Once combined, pour mixture into 4oz tins.
Set aside to harden. Carnauba wax takes approx. three days to harden fully, so be sure to wait to use your Breathe Balm if you can.
