Homemade Vapor Rub

With winter fastly approaching us; parents are starting to stock up on winter medical items. Vapor rubs are always on anyone stock pile list; well making this item homemade, is fast, easy, and can extend your dollar. This vapor rub is extermely easy, and fast to make. I recommend letting the vapor rub sit a couple days in a cool area before using this. 

Step 1: Gather your ingredients and items for this; you need. Beeswax (8 tbsp), coconut oil (14 tbsp), Cocoa or shea butter (7 tbsp), and about 30 to 50 drops of essiental oils (I used peppermint, you can use whatever you feel is smoothing). {This is doubled recipe so you can store it longer through the winter}

Step 2: Get a pot of water, boiling, and place a container on top that is heat proof; making sure it does not touch the water; add your beeswax and allow to melt. Once melted add the coconut oil, and peppermint. 



Step 3: Place in container to for storage. Allow 48 hours to sit before using.

Here it is done!!
