How to use Homemade Vapor Chest Rub

How to use Homemade Vapor Chest Rub
  1. This homemade Vapor rub isn't as strong as commercial Vapor rubs. Instead, it goes in gently, with a tingling sensation.
  2. Apply a tiny quantity to your chest when you have a cold or a cough. You may also rub your upper and middle back with the rub. Apply every few hours or so.
  3. You may also cup your palms over your nose and inhale a few times deeply if you massage it into your hands.
  4. Because the oils are diluted in the carrier oils, you can easily use them on children.
  5. Apply a tiny quantity on the bottoms of young babies' feet and cover them with socks if you use this homemade Vapor rub. The essential oils will still be absorbed into their feet and give therapeutic advantages.


  • Essential oils, although natural, should be used with caution. Why? Because they are extremely concentrated and potent. That's why it's critical to utilize therapeutic-grade oils that are 100 percent pure. 
  • Please keep it away from direct sunglight 
  • Check with your holistic healthcare practitioner before using essential oils if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. On babies under the age of six months, use a very tiny quantity and only on the soles of their feet.


Store-bought vapor rubs contain several toxic chemicals and can do more harm than good. Especially since we use vapor rubs on our babies, it is very important to ensure that it is 100% safe for their delicate skins.

Hence, making your vapor rubs at home is always a better option. Use only high-quality ingredients and essential oils like the ones that can be bought at Veda Oils. Say bye-bye to congestion forever!
