Little One (LO) and I have a monster cold, we had attended a baby sign language class and spread their germs to LO. Although, I loved seeing him play and make friends, these two little girls had goobery noses and was coughing everywhere. Sad to say this mother of the year did not realize it until it was too late and now we are both sick. A few days later when I reached for the baby vicks, I noticed that I only a few more uses left, we went to the store only to find that they did not carry baby vicks at all. I searched on amazon for Baby Vicks and Matys, but the problem was that I needed it now, not seven to ten business days later.
Then, as if lightening had struck me, I thought…. Why don’t I make my own baby Vicks?! So I quickly searched the web and tried this recipe
What you will need:
Lavender Essential Oil
Peppermint Essential Oil
Eucalyptus Essential Oil
Add about 4 tablespoons of coconut oil to your container. Some have complained about the runny consistency of this, I didn’t mind it at all, in fact I like to even better. But if it bothers you, you can do 1 tablespoon coconut oil and 3 tablespoons Vaseline.
