Add the coconut oil, shea butter and beeswax to a microwavable glass jug or a double boiler.
Melt, while stirring and mixing well.
Add the essential oils and pour into containers.
As I was using this on my kids, I used: 10 drops eucalyptus, 5 drops rosemary, 5 drops lavender, 10 drops peppermint. For a stronger version for adults, you could double the amount of drops of essential oils.
I poured some of my vapour rub into a small round tin and some into small lip gloss containers for easy use. I find these little sticks can be put into my handbag and rubbed on the children's feet when needed.
Store in a dark, cool place for up to 12 months.
If you are looking for a quick and simple recipe that requires no heating, why not try this: 1 TBSP coconut oil, 5 drops eucalyptus essential oil, 5 drops peppermint essential oil and 3 drops lavender essential oil. Mix well in a glass jar.
