DIY Vapor Rub

This is such an easy recipe! And a great way to get the benefits of this respiratory system support without all the chemicals. Most store bought vapor rubs have harsh chemicals such as camphor, petrolatum, and turpentine (yes, you read that right!). Stick with the all-natural version and you can feel good about putting this on your kids. We will be keeping this on hand for cold and flu season.

Even though I have lived in South Texas for a very long time, every year I long for the feeling of fall we had growing up in Kansas. We don’t have much of a fall here and it doesn’t happen until about late October so I have to manufacture it!

My son is really too old for playdough but I thought I would give it a try anyway. The idea of playing with squishy playdough that smells like apples and cinnamon was just too big of a draw for me. It seemed like a bit of a stress reliever too. A great addition would be Essential Oils. Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil smells amazing and supports immunity. Save this recipe for Christmastime and sub out the Cinnamon Bark for Peppermint Essential Oil. What a great gift for kiddos too!

Thanks to Kimberly from Natural Beach Living for sharing this taste of fall and fun with us!

When I started hearing more and more about antioxidents lately, I thought I better look into what all of this means for living a healthier life.
