DIY Vapor Rub

Have you ever had trouble breathing? I think we’ve all been there and agree that it is no fun. Many commercial products can help with this issue, but they have other unnecessary chemicals that take away from the benefits of their product! Lucky for you, we created a DIY Vapor Rub! It will help open up your sinuses and allow for easy breathing!

I love that I know exactly what I am putting on myself and allowing my body to absorb! It is also super easy to make which is always a plus!

Breathe Easy Essential Oil Blend

Breathe Easy Essential Oil Blend is a combination of Fir Needle, Cedarwood, Frankincense & Myrrh essential oils. It clears up your nasal passages super well!

Olive Oil

Olive oil by itself can be beneficial for your skin! But it’s purpose in this recipe is to allow the essential oils to dilute and be safe to apply to your skin!

DIY Vapor Rub

This recipe is safe to use with children 10+. If you want to use with children younger than this, have a lower dilution rate. Check out this handy dilution chart we created for topical use. 

This recipe is not recommended for use in close proximity to your pets as the essential oils may cause irritation.

Never ingest any essential oil, even if it’s generally regarded as safe. For more information on why we don’t ingest essential oils, check out this blog post
