Mentholated Vapor Balm

Mentholated Vapor Balm is an effective rub for sore muscles, or on your chest for a decongestant, rub it under your nose to open sinuses.

½ oz Peppermint oil
½ oz Eucalyptus oil
½ oz Wintergreen oil
4 oz Olive oil
½ oz beeswax, grated
4 drops tincture of Benzoin (balsamic tree resin used as a safe preservative)

Heat the olive oil in a double boiler or crockpot, add essential oils, then immediately stir in beeswax. Test consistency and pour into jar. When cool it should resemble the consistency of Vicks Vapor-rub. Adjust beeswax to get the consistency you like.
