It’s that time of year again!
You guys. I can’t. Check out the differences in the ingredients of these two vapor rubs.
Fragrance: This is catch all term used by the chemical and pharma industries to hide what’s ACTUALLY in the products you’re buying. It could be any number of carcinogenic or endocrine disrupting chemicals.
Turpentine: Y’all. For real? Are we thinning paint or trying to soothe a child’s cough?
Thymol: This is a phenol extracted from Thyme. I’ll give them that one.
Petrolatum: Read also: CRUDE OIL and KNOWN CARCINOGEN. This is not accepted as an ingredient in personal products in the EU...but here in the US? Go right ahead.
Do you see a pattern here? If you'd like a side of infertility and cancer to go with your cold, Vick's is the chest rub for you!
Ok, NOW on to my home made vapor balm.
Organic Coconut oil
Raven essential oil
Eucalyptus essential oil
Orange essential oil
See the difference? I'll take the affordable DIY version made with essential oils and coconut oil any day! I would love to help you ditch the toxins and make this for yourself!
