Coconut Oil Chest Rub for Children

Update: I now use an oil blend called Sniffleease for my children. This blend is diluted and safe for children to use.



  1. Melt coconut oil over low heat in a small saucepan.
  2. Mix the dried peppermint and eucalyptus leaves with the warm coconut oil.
  3. Turn off the heat and let the leaves infuse with the warm coconut oil for 3-4 hours.
  4. Now it’s time to strain the herbs. If the coconut oil has solidified simply re-heat it over low heat and strain the leaves.
  5. Add essential oils and mix well.
  6. Pour into jar or container.
