Here is an easy and quick recipe for a DIY chest rub:

Ingredients:

1/2 cup coconut oil (melted for mixing)
20 drops Eucalyptus Oil
20 drops Melaluca (Tea Tree) Oil
10 drops Marjoram, Lavender, or Peppermint Oil

Directions:

  1. Mix ingredients well and place together air tight container.
  2. Since coconut oil hardens at 76 degrees, I keep my rub in the refrigerator during summer and use clean utensils to scoop out. During winter months store in a cool dry place.
  3. If using on children, test a small area of the skin before applying to chest.

Disclaimer: Be sure to research all oils before using. We recommend only using organic and therapeutic grade essential oils. Need more information on how to obtain high quality oils click here!
