As cough and sore throat season approaches, stock your medicine cabinet with the RIGHT natural remedy for the job: this DIY essential oil chest rub! It's an herbal salve or balm that clears up coughs, nasal mucus, and sinus gunk in a flash with healing ingredients. Plus, I've made it easy to mix and match the essential oils so your homemade decongestant can be safe for kids or babies, too.
Stir the mixture every so often until melted.
When fully melted, put a few drops of the mixture onto a piece of wax paper to check the consistency.
Add essential oils: 150 drops total if for an adult, 30 drops total if for a child, 15 drops if for a baby.*

Apply to chest and/or neck area during a cold to help with coughs and respiratory congestion, especially before bed to aid sleep.
