Homemade all natural Vapor Rub

Diva has been sick for more than a week now. We've made 2 trips to the urgent care and have a prescription for an inhaler and steroids.

Unfortunately, she still has a nasty cough.

I wanted to put some Vicks on her chest to help this evening, but I didn't have any at home. What I did have was some eucalyptus essential oil from a failed spa experiment a couple of months back. I decided to make my own vapor rub. Here's how:

1 teaspoon coconut oil
8 drops eucalyptus oil

Mix together in a small dish and apply just like you would the store bought stuff.

If you like, you can use a hot water bottle to help speed up the absorption.

Within 15 minutes, Diva was sleeping soundly on the couch. I guess she likes the stuff.
