DIY Menthol Chest Rub With Essential Oils

Here’s what you need to make DIY chest rub

  • 1/4 coconut oil (solid)*
  • 2 tbsp. almond oil*
  • 1 tsp. beeswax*
  • 1/2 tsp. menthol crystals
  • 25 drops eucalyptus essential oil
  • 25 drops fir needle essential oil
  • small jar

*These items are included in the BIG BONUS BOX.

How To Make Your Own DIY Chest Rub

Using a double boiler (or a microwave using short intervals), melt the coconut oil, beeswax, and almond oil together.

I like to fill a small pot with about 2″ of water and place a metal bowl over the top of the pot – works great as a DIY double boiler!

Remove the liquid mixture from heat and add in 1/2 tsp. menthol crystals.

Add Eucalyptus and Fir Needle essential oils and mix.

This smells AMAZING!

Carefully pour your salve into a jar.

Allow your chest rub to cool down and harden – mine took about 10 minutes. 

Once it has cooled, place one of the gorgeous sticker labels that come in the recipe box on your jar’s lid so you know what is in the jar!

How To Use DIY Chest Rub

To use your homemade chest rub, use either a spoon or your fingers to grab some of the chest rub from your jar and apply it to your chest.

This essential oil chest rub is so soothing, smells great, and works great at relieving congestion symptoms (in my experience).

It has a shelf life of one year and is considered generally safe for ages 10+.
