Recipe For Eucalyptus DIY Chest Rub for Kids
DIY Chest Rub Supplies Needed:
- Small Plastic or Glass Jar with Lid
- Organic Coconut Oil
- Small Mixing Bowl
- Young Living Pine Essential Oil
- Young Living Peppermint Essential Oil
- Young Living Eucalyptus Essential Oil
Instructions on how to make your All Natural Eucalyptus DIY Chest Rub:
First grab all your supplies and head to the kitchen. Grab your coconut oil and measure out 1/2 a cup. Place that in the bowl (I just grab a spoon and eyeball it so if that’s your thing, go for it!). Now, the next part is a little tedious but it must be done…take your fork and whip your coconut oil. You want the final consistency to be fluffy. You can more than certainly grab your electric mixer and whip the coconut oil that way but I find that it doesn’t take that long to do it with a fork. *If you do choose to use your mixer, keep it on a low speed.
Once your coconut oil is whipped nicely and has that light fluffy consistency, it’s time to add your essential oils. Drop 16 drops of eucalyptus essential oil and 7 drop of pine and peppermint essential oil right on top of the coconut oil. Fold in the essential oils and place in your jar. The consistency of the coconut oil mixture should stay fluffy if you keep it in a cool place. *If it does get warm and turn into a liquid, no worries! It works the same.
Your Eucalyptus DIY chest rub is ready to use. When your child has a cough/congestion, grab your rub and simply rub a little on his/her chest, on neck and also on the bottoms of feet. This can be done a couple times a day.
