Homemade Decongestant Chest Balm


As a child, I remember Vicks Vapor Rub.  Do you?  While I was checking my Facebook page, I found this recipe for Homemade Decongestant Chest Balm recipe that one of my friends posted. So if you are in need of a decongestant, instead of purchasing one how about making your own?

The actual Vicks contains turpentine *(yuck!) I had read somewhere once that Bitter Orange essential oil was a great substitute for turpentine in blends like this. I have added a little to my natural 'vicks substitute' in the past with great results.

I always loved the smell of Vicks. But now that I know that then I do not like it so much. Thanks for the info.
