Homemade Organic Vapo-Rub Recipe


We have been fortunate this year to not have cold and flu season strike us!  We hope that you and your family have fought off cold and flu season as well!

It is best to be prepared when it comes to keeping your family healthy!  If by chance, one of you catch the awful cold/flu that is going around, you will definitely want to have this recipe on hand!

We have done away with purchasing over the counter medication for our family.   One of the reasons for making our own personal care products, is the ingredient list on store bought items!  Have you ever read the ingredients to Vick’s Vapor Rub??  YUCK!  We definitely are NOT putting petroleum our family!  With that said, here is our easy homemade vapo-rub recipe!


  • 1/2 C Organic coconut oil
  • 2 TBSP Organic beeswax pastilles
  • 20 Drops Eucalyptus Oil
  • 20 Drops Peppermint Oil
  • 10 Drops Rosemary Oil


  1. Melt beeswax with coconut oil in a double boiler until just melted.
  2. Add the essential oils.
  3. Stir until well combined and pour into small glass jar or small tin.
  4. Use as needed to help sooth coughing and congestion.

There you have it, a simple and effective natural remedy to use during cold and flu season!
