Chicks Vapour Rub.

All-natural chest rub. Simple, yet effective for cold and flu to relieve a stuffy nose with the overpowering scent of eucalyptus oil gently messaged into the chest. It is also amazing as a natural deep heat alternative to help soothe sore muscles. 

To get the consistency just like petroleum jelly, I make a natural version that looks and feel just like Vaseline.  Castor oil and beeswax have a symbiotic relationship. When heated the beeswax is whisked into castor oil until the jelly-like consistency is achieved. This mixture provides a protective barrier to the skin, holding in moisture and helping to prevent skin irritation. 


Here is why you should get this and avoid Vaseline (petroleum jelly) at all costs.

Petroleum jelly is a byproduct of the petroleum manufacturing process. Yes, petroleum as in petrol. The raw materials in petroleum jelly (what you smear on your skin) were actually discovered on an oil rig in 1859 – it was found building up in the machinery!
 A chemical that is hard to dispose of, so clever corporations have processed it into a skin product and sassy marketers have convinced consumers to buy it. 

Petroleum jelly has the unique ability to absorb into our skin and lock itself into place in between cells in our liquid barrier. Manufacturers of the stuff will tell you this creates long-lasting, smooth skin. But truth be told, petroleum jelly has no moisturizing properties. Instead, it acts as an impermeable barrier to the skin. Sure it will lock in whatever moisture is underneath it to give your skin the appearance of being moisturized, but it will also lock in any dirt, sweat, or bacteria that exists. This barrier will also deter any added moisture or beneficial ingredients from other products to reach the skin. Also, since petroleum jelly is not water-soluble, it does not easily wash away, which means it can build up in your system over time. 

Do not fear! Here is an alternative product... beeswax! Your skin will love it and is a much better product to trust for your long-term health at a very affordable price.
