A few simple ingredients is all you need to make a healing balm at home that can be rubbed over chests, feet, and temples. I’ve partnered up with Mountain Rose Herbs this year to bring you some natural remedies that are good for you and not toxic like a lot of products on the market. Here’s the ingredients you need for this rub, you may even have some on hand already:
- Organic Coconut Oil
- Beeswax Pastilles
- Eucalyptus Essential Oil
- Peppermint Essential Oil
- Rosemary Essential Oil
- Wild Orange Essential Oil (optional)
- A Jar
That’s it! Just a few simple ingredients. All you have to do is melt the coconut oil and beeswax together over a double broiler, turn off the heat, and add in the oils.
I like my rub to be a bit heavy on the eucalyptus so I put about 40 drops in. Start with 20 and go from there until you reach your desired strength.
