Kid's Chest Rub
This has been specially formulated for children over the age of 2, to aid the respiratory system and immunity, and contains oils that are known for their anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-septic, anti-inflammatory and anti-infectious properties. This is an all-natural and organic remedy to alleviate the congestion and discomfort from the common cold, flu, fever, coughs and infection. I have chosen to exclude the oils from my formulation that are considered by some leading experts in aromatherapy as dangerous to young children (such as eucalyptus, wintergreen, rosemary and peppermint) due to the high concentrations of 1,8-cineole and menthol components. These oils have been known to slow breathing and cause neurological problems in young children. The Nude Alchemist formulation contains gentler, alternative oils. Properties: anti-bacterial, anti-viral, aids respiration and congestion and stimulates the immune system. Ingredients: cold-pressed apricot kernel oil*, cold-pressed virgin castor oil*, NZ beeswax*, natural vitamin E, pure therapeutic-grade essential oils; cypress, lemon, sweet orange*, marjoram, rosalina, fir needle, spruce, cedarwood*, spearmint* and juniper berry. *certified organic 30g glass amber jar. Application: Rub onto the chest, around the neck, throat and onto the back, especially before sleep. Can also be applied to soles of feet, then left overnight.
