chest rub raw

Cold and flu season is coming hard and fast this year. It is time for us to stock up our natural medicine cabinet with herbal allies and homemade treatments to get us through the various illnesses of the season.

One of my go-to treatments when my family gets chest congestion, cough, or cold symptoms is my home made chest rub. This natural chest rub is an easy recipe, made with Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils, the highest quality oils you can find. This safe and effective remedy helps soothe cough and congestion, clears the sinuses, ease spasms, coughing, catarrh, is calming to the senses and helps promote a good night sleep.

I just used this with my son this last week with his cold and it was amazing! His congestion and runny nose cleared right up whenever I used it. It also put him right to sleep. I love this rub!

  1. This is so great, Amanda! I totally need something like this right now since our monkey has his first real cold of his life. 🙁 I rubbed some eucalyptus diluted in coconut oil on his chest and back last night, and although it seemed to work, it’s less than ideal since it’s impossible to store and way too greasy LOL.

    Thanks for this, I’m definitely checking it out and pinning…and sharing on FB 🙂

      Aww poor little dude. When N had a cold a few weeks ago we used this (yes with the eucalyptus and everything) and it cleared him right up! IT works really well. I hope he feels better soon! Thanks for sharing 🙂

      • Aww, thanks! Yeah, he’s a trooper. During the day he’s running around like nothing is wrong – except for his booger face LOL, but at night is when the congestion gets really bad. I’m making a batch of this right now! 🙂

  2. I love this! I’m going to make an extra batch to give out to friends and family at Thanksgiving! Seems like everyone gets sick right around that time and I think it would be a gift well used. Thanks so much for this!

    Great find. I love using vapor rub in the cold season. I just never knew you could make it at home. Thanks!
