Magic Homemade Vapor Rub

Growing up my families homemade rub was a staple in our house for anytime we got sick. This stuff is magic in a little plastic tub. It is similar to vicks vapor rub but so much better. I have had pneumonia twice and this stuff has been the only thing that seriously helps.  Also a little random tip when you are sick put some on the soles of your feet and slip some socks on over that and it helps a ton as well. Here is the recipe

Moms Rub:

2TBSP= 2oz.

2 oz. oil of Turpentine (has to be the oil not spirits or it won’t work)

2 oz. oil of Peppermint

2 oz. oil Eucaliptis

2 Cakes Camphor Gum

Use a knife to sliver the 2 cakes camphor gum into the oil and let it sit for half a day

6 oz. Vaseline

Melt the vaseline on the stove top or microwave and than add the rest of the mixture. Let it sit for the rest of the night.
