Homemade Vapor Rub

Here is a basic recipe to help clear your nose if stuffy.  You can add Essential Oils if you want to bump up your rub.

2oz Beeswax (2 bars)
4oz Carrier Oil (Apricot, Rice Bran, Grapeseed, etc) (or 1/2 cup)
1 TBSP Menthol Crystals (or to suit)

Use a scale or the we've broken down for easier use.  You can either use a double-boiler or a 2c pyrex measuring cup and the microwave (this is now dedicated to making homemade salves) in 30 second bursts.  You want to melt not cook your recipe!

I melt the beeswax about half way through then add the menthol (they do take awhile to melt) crystals using a popcicle stick I mix then add the carrier oil and microwave are warm then mix well.

You can now add essential oils to enhance the rub or just pour into 2 3oz jars or 3 2oz jars.

Essential Oil ideas for adding:
50d AB Protection Blend
10d Eucalpyus Oil
10d Lemon Oil
20d Peppermint (Wintergreen or Spearmint) Oil
10d Rosemary Oil
10d Cedarwood Oil
10d Copaiba Balsam Oil
10d Pine Oil
10d Cinnamon Oil
10d Clove Oil
10d Grapefruit Oil
10d Frankincense Oil

ALL the above oils can be used alone or in tandem or congestion. 
Use no more than 50 DROPS for the above recipe!
