For this congestion rub recipe you will need:

  • 1 Pound Shea Butter

  • 10 RC Essential Oil drops
  • 5 drops of Eucalyptus Essential Oil
  • 5 Drops of Peppermint Essential Oil

To start out, you’ll need a double boiler. If you don’t have one on hand, you could also place a large metal bowl over a pot of boiling water and use that as a make-shift boiler instead.

Place the shea butter and beeswax into the top of the double boiler (or the bowl on top of your pot). As these start to melt, add the oils and mix.  Use a whisk for best results as these need to be well combined.

When it becomes nice and creamy you can remove the boiler from heat and spoon the congestion rub into a glass container for use. Be sure to let it cool a bit before applying, as you don’t want to burn yourself.

When the congestion rub has reached an even temperature you may apply it liberally to your chest, back and the soles of your feet. Applying the rub in these places will bring the most benefit.
