OTC – Thieves Chest Rub

While I have an awesome DIY chest rub recipe, I like that there is Thieves Chest Rub available. It helps tackle seasonal colds and coughs that you can feel in your chest.

With natural camphor and menthol along with Eucalyptus oil and the power of Thieves, rub this on your chest to help relieve coughs, soothe nasal passages, and keep you breathing easily and comfortable while you recover.


It provides temporary relief of coughs caused by allergies, cold, minor throat and bronchial irritation. The aromatic vapors soothe nasal passages.

Plus, it’s plant based and formulated free of petroleum, parabens, phthalates, mineral oil, synthetic perfumes or dyes, artificial colors, preservatives, or GMO ingredients!

AND it has a hands-free application !

Keep calm and just breathe

There are a lot of reasons to be anxious, freak out, or just plain worry. Not that it does any good.

Logically we know that worrying is a useless activity.

  • If you can fix the problem, don’t worry. Make a plan and fix it.
  • If you can’t fix the problem, don’t worry. Research what your options are and go from there.

Either way, don’t worry.

But sometimes, your brain doesn’t get the notice and you need a little assistance in calming down. That’s where essential oils can be extremely helpful.

I couple deep breathing exercises with essential oils that are known to have calming properties to help me find my center when life might have me off balanced.
