You can use metal tins, or moisturizer container will work as well. Size of your container will determine how much you make so ingredients are listed in parts.



Melt oil and beeswax in pan, add essential oils. Pour into your container. The salve will harden in 10 to15 minutes. If too soft, re-melt and add more beeswax. If too hard, re-melt and add more oil.

Vicks Vaporub works great on sore muscles and dry skin. I used it for back pain. Also great on dry skin on feet, at night rub in and sleep with white cotton socks. Amazing how soft dry spots become. Be sure not to use on open sores.

I too have found alternative uses for Vicks Vaporub. Unfortunately I have Sjogrens Syndrome and it causes my nasal membranes to become very dry and brittle. When applied lightly to both nostrils with a Q-tip it allows my mucous membranes to stay most and comfortable and also leaves a pleasant smell. However, be careful to use sparingly and lightly so as to not inhale or taste the excess.

It's also great for a cough; used on your feet! Rub it on the bottoms of your feet at bedtime and cover with socks. I don't know why this works, but it completely stops a nighttime cough.

I use Vick's Vaporub to stop my cats scratching on the windows & doors as they don't like the smell...citronella oil works well for this too. I find the best natural relief for back pain is using thermal supports from Vicks is also good used as an inhalation if you have a cold.

I tried the Vicks for the Bulldog who licks her feet all the time... worked like a charm. Also, I have Eczema & work in the food industry. My hands are constantly dry & cracking. 4 nights of slathering Vicks Vapo-Rub on my hands & covering with cotton gloves, my dry skin is a thing of the past. I use the Vicks on my hands nightly now. I don't want it to come back!
