We are constantly doing a lot to support our healthy immune systems.  We eat fermented foods, take elderberry syrup, eat lots of green veggies and take Juice Plus.  

Awhile back, I was on the hunt for a salve with soothing vapors that I could make at home.  Besides, I have been on the hunt for non-toxic recipes or products to replace the ones that were in my cabinets!  I found lots of recipes online so I figured it was something I should try out.  

Does the thought of removing chemicals from your home seem daunting to you? Don’t sweat it. In just 5 days you can be well on your way to a toxin free home! Grab your 5 easy steps here!

Anyway, for my family, I put this homemade vapor rub on our feet at night, covered with socks.  Love it!


Natural Homemade Vapor Rub

  2. 1 tbsp. evening primrose oil or other carrier oil such as olive oil or sweet almond oil
  3. 2 tablespoons beeswax

  1. In a small pan, melt the coconut oil and evening primrose oil.
  2. Add the beeswax, chopped up (or in granules) and stir until melted.
  3. Add the essential oils and stir to combine.
  4. Pour into a 4-oz. glass jar and allow to cool.
  1. I store mine in the medicine cabinet, instead of the fridge, because I want it soft enough to spread on tiny feet.
