Cough, cough, sneeze, sneeze…. It’s this tie of year again, oh jeeze!
And if you caught this cough and sneeze and even start to strongly wheeze, I must recommend this herbal balm which will ease your ailments and make you calm.
NICI’S WARMING CHEST BALM (for children and adults over 3 years)
(makes about 100 ml)
4 Tbsp almond oil
1 Tbsp bees wax
1 Tbsp shea butter
1 Tbsp cocoa butter
30 drops eucalyptus (100% essential oil)
10 drops rosemary (100% essential oil)
10 drops thyme (100% essential oil)
10 drops tea tree (100% essential oil)
In a large jar glass mix everything except the essential oils. Place into a Pot with boiling water and wait until everything has melted. Take the glass out of the water bath and let cool for 5 minutes. Now stir in essential oils, stir and rather quickly fill into designated containers. Let cool and close with a lid.
In case of a cold with stuffed sinuses, cough or congested nose rub a teaspoon large amount on your chest and a little under your nose before sleeping. It will help you sleep and sleep is the best medicine…as my mother always says!
P.s.: I wouldn’t use this for babies because they can react sensitive to high doses of essential oils. I will try to find a recipe for the little ones as well. So, stay tuned!
