How To Make Vapor Rub

Make sure you like Homestead and Survival on Facebook to be updated every time we find a tutorial for innovative ways you can become self-sufficient on a budget.


Vapor Rub is applied topically to sooth chest, sinus congestion, and help minimize coughing. It’s applied directly to the upper chest and throat (although my grandmother often gave me a small dab underneath the nose). We found a recipe that’s a version of Vick’s Vapor Rub, but contains all natural products and no petroleum, turpentine oil, or other chemicals.
