Here are three DIY natural winter wellness recipes using essential oils you gotta try! These will help keep you healthy and moisturized during these cold, dry winter months. One is a body butter, one is an immunity roller bottle recipe, and one a vapor chest rub.
3 Winter Wellness Recipes
The first of the three winter wellness recipes is this Vapor Chest Rub. It is so super simple to make and use! Use anytime you feel like you're coming down with something and it can even be used during exercise to help open up your lungs and sinuses. Apply it to the chest and spine, but do be careful with coconut oil because it can leave oil stains on clothing. Make sure the coconut oil is rubbed in really well before putting your shirt down. This is also safe to use on children!Print
Vapor Chest Rub
A super simple recipe for a vapor chest rub, like Vick's!
Put all of the ingredients in the jar and stir until well combined. If the coconut oil is cold and hard, heat over the stove or in the microwave until softened.
Rub on your chest when you feel a cold coming on or need help breathing. It can even be used before and during exercise to help while your heart rate is up and you're breathing fast!
The second of the three winter wellness recipes is this luxurious body butter recipe! I've been making and using this recipe for years! It is so luxurious and creamy. It's perfect for dry skin and places like the heels, elbows, knees and other very dry spots.Print
Luxurious Body Butter Recipe
A creamy, buttery, super moisturizing body butter recipe that looks so good you might want to eat it! Perfect for dry, cracked winter skin.
Melt everything but the essential oils in a double boiler on the stove on low heat, stirring frequently. Once melted, remove from the stove and refrigerate for 45 minutes or until it hardens. Remove from the fridge and while with a hand or standing mixer for five minutes.
You can make a makeshift doubler boiler using one smaller pot inside of a larger one. Put a cup or two of water in the larger pot. You can also heat the ingredients in the microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring in between each one, until melted.
The third of the three winter wellness recipes we are making today is this Immunity Roller Bottle Recipe. Making your own essential oil roller bottles is SO easy and it makes it much simpler and easier to use your essential oils for your health. This recipe will help you stay well during the winter when it feels like everyone around you is dropping like flies!Print

Combine all ingredients in the roller bottle. Done! Roll on the spine, chest, bottoms of the feet and/or sinuses as often as needed. To stay well, roll on the bottoms of the feet and spine morning and night and run your diffuser with Thieves or Raven in it while you sleep.
