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



  • In a small pan, melt the coconut oil and evening primrose oil.
  • Add the beeswax, chopped up (or in granules) and stir until melted.
  • Add the essential oils and stir to combine.
  • Pour into a 4-oz. glass jar and allow to cool.


I store mine in the medicine cabinet, instead of the fridge, because I want it soft enough to spread on tiny feet.

Good luck and enjoy the benefits of a restful sleep with our homemade vapor rub.
