Natural Alternative of Vicks

I decided to make my own vapor rub containing natural essential oils that contain complex compounds that not only knock out symptoms but can also help the body heal itself.

Here’s a recipe that is simple, safe, and that works for people of all ages. The essential oils deliver a soothing feeling while giving off an aroma that helps to open up the respiratory system and help improve the ease of breathing.

Homemade Chest Rub



¼ cup olive oil
½ cup coconut oil
¼ cup grated Beeswax
20 drops peppermint essential oil
20 drops eucalyptus essential oil
Glass jar


Pour all oils into a jar.
Place a saucepan with 2 inches of water over medium-low heat.
Place the jar in a saucepan and allow oils to melt. Stir to combine.
Once combined, allow to cool slightly and add in essential oils.
Pour mixture into metal tins or storage containers and allow to set.


Store at room temperature so it is soft enough to rub on the feet, chest & spine. Rub as needed, every 3-4 hours on the chest or soles of the feet. (cover feet with socks afterward).
