OK For Kids Breathe In, Breathe Out - DIY Chest Rub

August 22, 2016

Breathing should be the easiest activity we do, to the point where we don’t even have to think about it. But sometimes, we have our bad days and breathing becomes a laborious chore. That’s why we've created Breathe In, Breathe Out, so your kids can take a deep sigh of relief and get back to what’s important to them. You can pop this blend in the diffuser, in a personal inhaler, have your child inhale it straight out of the bottle, or use it topically for quick relief. They’ll be thankful they can breathe with ease, and you will be too.

Breathe In, Breathe Out DIY Chest Rub

When kids come down with congestion, sometimes there’s nothing better for them than a comforting chest rub. In fact, we’ve found it to be one of the most effective ways to get our children back to health. Fortunately, salves are not only easy to use but also incredibly easy to make. You can use this recipe to make any essential oil infused salve, including our OK For Kids Breathe In, Breathe Out blend so you and your family can breathe again.

What you need

2 oz Jojoba oil

1 oz Beeswax

Double boiler

4 oz Tin

15 drops Breathe In, Breathe Out

How to

1. Melt beeswax in double boiler on low heat. Remove from heat and stir in Jojoba oil.

2. Add Breathe In, Breathe Out, and pour into tin.

3. Put in refrigerator. Once hardened, rub onto child’s chest and give them a warm cup of cocoa or tea to sip while this salve does the trick!

    Hi Barbara! Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We’ve since changed the text. Not sure how this made its way in there!

    Is the Sweet Marjoram different from that used in the Aches and Pains blend? Aches and Pains notes the ingredient as OK4Kids Sweet Marjoram.

    Hi Angela! Try a blend of 10 drops Cypress, 10 drops Spike Lavender and 10 drops Sandalwood in your humidifier. You may also want to check with the humidifier manufacturer to ensure your device is compatible with 100% pure essential oils.

    Hello, are you able to use any of the respiratory or breathing blends during pregnancy? I’ll be using it in a humidifier or aromatherapy only. Thank you

    Hi Chloe! Coconut oil can be used in place of Jojoba.
