Natural Vapour Rub Emu Ridge


Do you ever read the ingredients in medicine? Sometimes, the things we trust to use with our family can have some surprising additives.
Our Vapor Rub is natural and made for children, adults can add some more Eucalyptus oil to the mixture to make it stronger.

Please read -From Web MD:
“Turpentine oil is POSSIBLY SAFE when adults use it on their skin or inhale it appropriately. When used on the skin, it can cause skin irritation. When inhaled, turpentine oil can cause spasms of the airways, particularly in people with asthma and whooping cough.

Turpentine oil is UNSAFE when taken by mouth or used over a large area of skin. Turpentine oil, when taken by mouth, can cause serious side effects including headache, sleeplessness, coughing, bleeding in the lungs, vomiting, kidney damage, brain damage, coma, and death.

Petroleum – A recent study showing that the petroleum builds up in the skin and the body isn’t able to process and excrete it, and can even causes our bodies to become more toxic. Petroleum distillates (aka napthas) is linked to lung and mucuos damage.  Studies suggest that exposure to PAHs — including skin contact over extended periods of time — is associated with cancer.  On this basis, the European Union classifies petrolatum a carcinogen  and restricts its use in cosmetics. PAHs in petrolatum can also cause skin irritation and allergies. These product may be cheaper, but at what cost? Scary!! (Info from  David Suzuki Foundation)

I became allergic to perfumes and preservatives many years ago and this prompted me to develop our natural range of products for Emu Ridge.

Our Vapour Rub was specifically made for babies and children as a decongestant for colds and flu. Just massage into the chest area, on the throat, on the back between the shoulder blades & on your feet, its great for sinus relief. Adults can add a few extra drops of Eucalyptus oil to the mixture to make it stronger.

Our Vapour Rub is available directly from our online shop Ingredients: Olive Oil, Coconut Oil & Bees Wax. Essential Oils: Eucalyptus, Peppermint, Thyme & Clove.

Our products are all made in small batches and they are lovingly made, bottled and labelled by hand by a real person. This is Sandra, who made our natural products and skincare for decades. Due to illness we now make most of it here at Emu Ridge and its usually Larry, Tristan or Jude who have made your products.

Do you ever read the ingredients label? Sometimes, the things we trust to use with our family can have some surprising unhealthy additives.

Vapour rub helps with symptoms of a common cold or minor aches and pains of the muscles and joints. You can purchase vapour rub in shops, but many of these products contain toxic ingredients — such as camphor — that are harmful to your health.

Our Eucalyptus essential oil is an expectorant, helping to cleanse the body of toxins, making it great for relieving symptoms of the cold and flu. It has also proven helpful with sinus and respiratory problems.

If you have nothing in your medicine cupboard. You can make a natural alternative, just mix about 10 drops of Emu Ridge eucalyptus oil with 25ml of Olive, coconut or Emu Oil and rub on your chest.
