Does the idea of using a vapor rub that has petroleum jelly in it, make you uneasy? It does me, so I've been making homemade vapor rub for our family every cold and flu season for several years. You can too.
Vapor rub is great during the cold and flu season, but most is made with a petroleum byproduct and the natural ones cost an arm and a leg. But with a few simple ingredients and just a couple of minutes you can make your own safe and effective natural vapor rub.
A few years ago our son made cribbage boards for each family in our family (if that makes any sense ) out of a large cedar log. I cannot tell you how many times we've pulled them out to play while visiting family. It was such a thoughtful gift.
We have a full tutorial on the blog along with some printable game instructions in case you need a refresher.
