I made this rub last week, before I left for my visit to Uganda. It’s inspired by that time I thought I might suffocate in the shower. No joke.
Having a cold is totally not the end of the world. It’s only the end of the world if you think it’s the end of the world, or if you’re trying to eat peanut butter while your nose is out of order. That’s a disaster.
The only relief I could find this cold season was in the shower, waiting for the steam to work it’s magic on my clogged sinuses. That takes some minutes…. long minutes to stand there scalding your skin thinking of other possible remedies you could coax from your medicine cabinet. This is likely when you suggest that I purchase a humidifier, to which I reply ‘MEH sounds boring’. Sorry.
We made lip gloss a few months ago! Couldn’t we use those same ingredients to make a homemade minty vapor rub to spread on our chests and perhaps not be mouth breathers for the rest of our lives? The answer is a resounding YES! So here.we.go!
