you can use a homeopathic version of Vicks,
Homemade Vapor Rub
- Oil (Use extra virgin oil for a liquid rub; coconut
or palm shortening
for a solid rub)
- Essential oil (I used eucalyptus, but peppermint would also work well. Consider using a mixture of the two.
1. Place a small amount (approximately 2 Tbsp) of oil in a small container.
2. Add essential oil to desired strength. Start with 5-7 drops and add until the mixture is the strength that you desire. I just rubbed some on my sonís chest and increased the strength until it started to work.
