I hope we all are learning to be more green in our daily lives. I learned that petroleum based product are poisonous to our systems as well as can cause brain deficiencies in children. Why are these products on the market? We all know the famous V**ks vapor rub, even the kind marketed to babies all has as its 1st ingredient as petroleum. Here is a more natural version.
1/2 cup of solid coconut oil
1/8 cup of olive oil
3 or 4 drops of Eucalyptus oil
1 Tbsp of Menthol crystals
Melt coconut oil in small microwavable bowl or jar. Stir in olive oil and eucalyptus oil. Add menthol crystals until melted. Pour into a jar or bowl with a lid. Put in a cool dry place or refrigerator until almost solid. Keep tightly covered. Use just like the brand type rub. If too strong, variate the ingredients.
