That Wonderful Chest Rub!

I remember when I was a child the wonderful feeling of having a chest rub rubbed on right before I went to sleep. Soon I felt the soothing warmth spreading through my chest and throat, and I took deep breaths through my nose as my sinuses opened up. Now you can make your own chest rub that only contains natural ingredients (no petroleum jelly!)

Non-Petroleum Jelly Recipe

 I have been messing around trying to make various face creams for a loooong time. I only could make two kinds. The "too hard" kind, and the "It wont stay mixed together" kind. I finally found one I really like! It has the consistency of a salve or balm, so it's not technically a cream (no water), but I really, really am happy with it. I think this will be my new balm base-recipe for everything else I make.
