Chest rub recipe

chest-rubHere is my recipe for my favourite home-made chest rub.  I modified it from a remedy I found for whooping cough.  I have used it frequently on my daughter and myself with great results in soothing an irritating cough and clearing congestion.  NB: It shouldn’t be used on children younger than 3 years old.

4 drops of Lavender oil

4 drops of Tea Tree oil

2 drops of Thyme oil

2 drops Eucalyptus oil


Add it to 20mls of sweet almond oil (carrier oil) to rub it onto your chest and back.  Adding a few drops into an oil diffuser or a warm bath also works a charm
