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.

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

    Can I use coconut oil for this instead of jojoba oil?

    Hi JH! You may want to add a carrier oil to the shea butter, and melt it down before adding in essential oils. Since shea butter is solid, it will be hard to evenly mix essential oils into it, and it won’t absorb as well by itself.

    Can’t I just add the EO to some unrefined shea butter or do I need to use this recipe for best absorption?
