a good day

for me a good saturday almost always involves learning how to make something.  today was a good saturday:  there was a wellness fair at my local health food store and i learned how to make natural vapo-rub.

one-half cup olive or coconut oil
20 drops each peppermint and eucalyptus essential oils
10 drops clove oil
two tablespoons beeswax pastilles
  • mix essential oils and clove oil with olive oil or melted coconut oil in a pyrex glass measuring cup
  • add beeswax pastilles
  • place pyrex in a pan of water on the stove top and heat slowly, double-boiler-style, continually stirring
  • once beeswax has melted, pour into small glass jar (with lid) and cool
rub on tummies and chests and backs and under noses and be well.
