How to use Chesty Rub:

For children age 6months+

What’s in Chesty Rub?

Organic ingredients of: coconut oil, beeswax, lanolin, castor oil, lavender oil, lanolin alcohol, menthol, eucalyptus oil, carnauba wax, vitamin E, cedarwood oil, nutmeg oil, wild crafted murunga (kakadu plum), bach flower remedies: white chestnut, clematis, cherry plum, rock rose, love & hugs.

The good stuff:

Organic Coconut Oil

We only use unrefined, raw, organic coconut oil. Like coconuts themselves, coconut oil is rich in many proteins. These proteins keep skin healthy and rejuvenated, both internally and externally. Proteins also contribute to cellular health and tissue repair.  Coconut oil is a brilliant moisturiser for all skin types, especially dry skin and is safe for babies and kids making an excellent nappy and skin cream. It also speeds up the healing process of bruises by helping to repair damaged tissue, it penetrates deeply and is nutrient rich. Also amazing to use if your kids have knits!!  We adore coconut oil for its therapeutic activity and use it as a base of many of our products.

Organic Beeswax

We only use natural unbleached organic beeswax. Beeswax has a number of benefits for the skin, including an anti-inflammatory action that helps to calm and soothe. It forms a protective barrier on the skin to guard against irritants and lock in moisture.  Unlike ingredients made from petroleum beeswax doesn’t suffocate the skin and won’t clog the pores. It is excellent to use for skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. I have chosen to use organic unbleached beeswax for its skin healing properties. It’s also antibacterial and soothes tender skin! Bees are amazing and are in great danger around the world. Bees are not harmed during this process of the removal of the wax. We adore and respect our bees!

 Natural Vitamin E  

We use Vitamin E not only for its amazing skin benefits but also because it acts as a natural preservative and stops our formulas from going rancid. Vitamin E helps normal red blood cells, muscles and other body tissues to grow and remain healthy.  It stimulates the immune system, helps block lipid peroxidation in cells and tissues, and can alleviate allergic reactions and help heal scar tissue. You will see Vitamin E in a few of our products as we love how it makes our products feel on the skin.

Organic Carnauba Wax

Carnauba wax is a vegetable wax obtained from the leaves of a Brazilian palm tree (Copernica cerifera) known as the “Tree of Life.”  Carnuba Wax is known for it’s beautiful hydrating properties increasing moisture in the skin as well as naturally protecting it.

Organic Lanolin

Lanolin is a natural and organic substance that is mainly known for its moisturizing effects on the skin. It provides a smooth barrier which protects the skin and is a natural emollient.

Organic Lavender Essential Oil

We are obsessed with organic lavender essential oil. We feature it in almost all of our products because it benefits almost every body system.  Lavender essential oil smells divine and is an excellent tonic for the nervous system soothing and relaxing and supporting healthy nervous tissue function. Brilliant for anxiety, migraines, headaches, depression, nervous tension and emotional stress.  Lavender is one of the three essential oils which most powerfully stimulate the growth of healthy new cells – Tea Tree and Neroli are the others. Lavender has numerous active constituents but above all, it is primarily the balancing and normalising action of the oil which makes it so beneficially versatile.

Organic Menthol Oil

Our beautiful menthol oil smells incredible and medically it’s used to clear sinus congestion, help headaches and support the respiratory system. Also really good for nausea and fever and we love it in our chesty rub.

Organic Cederwood Oil

A beautiful warm woody essential oil designed to give comfort known for it’s support of the respiratory and nervous systems.

Organic Eucalyptus Essential Oil

This oil has many healing properties and has been used in epidemics and infectious illnesses for thousands of years. It’s particularly known for its effective expectorant properties and is amazing for coughs, colds and respiratory conditions.

Organic Nutmeg Essential Oil

We use beautiful organic nutmeg essential oil for it’s calming and sedative effect and is a known sleeping aid. Nutmeg oil can help relieve muscle aches and pains, swelling and inflammation within the body.

Wild Crafted Murunga (Kakadu Plum)

This miracle of nature is from the Kimberleys in Western Australia and is a potent, natural wholefood source of Vitamin C and a beautiful emollient designed to soothe the skin.

 Homeopathics/ Bach Flower Remedies

Bach Flower Remedies are a safe and natural method of healing discovered by Dr. Bach from 1920 – 1930’s in England. They gently restore the balance between mind and body by casting out negative emotions such as fear, worry, and indecision, which interfere with the equilibrium of the being as a whole. The Bach Flower Remedies allow peace and happiness to return to the sufferer so that the body is free to heal itself.

The Bach Flower Remedies are made from wild flowers and are safe for the whole family including pets and children. There are no known side effects or allergic reactions.

Rock Rose for terror and panic

Cherry Plum for irrational thoughts

White Chestnut – to cam the mind of worrying thoughts.

Love and Hugs

This is without a doubt our most important ingredient in every one of our products. Our beautiful hand blended Chesty Rub is filled to the brim with love and hugs and designed to promote and enhance the health and wellbeing of your family.

    Not just effective for the kids!
    I had a little dry, irritating cough recently and immediately after I applied some chesty rub on myself, the cough settled down and I was able to relax enough to fall asleep. Even my husband has used with immediate benefits! Goes without saying that the kids also get amazing results!

    I remember HATING the smell and feel of Vicks as a child, but this smells just divine and my girls love it when I put it on them. The pot is smaller than I was expecting but a little goes a long way so it should last ages.

    Love it! Omg it smells so nice and my 2 boys can’t wait to get it on, we are currently using it with the Sleepy Head balm as they have been a little unwell and its really helping. Usually when they have a cold they cough on and off all night but this time since we started using Chesty Rub they haven’t been coughing at night. Also my 4yr old falls asleep within 10 minutes of going to bed when he has both on

    We use the chesty balm on my boy when not well, on the weekend he got a bee sting, the hand began to get very red, I rushed him inside washed his hand after removing the stinger and I applied some chesty rub on it! It was magic! The redness and pain Was gone with in mins!!!
    So not just a fantastic product when he has the flu, which by the ways works brilliantly but there is other amazing uses for it.

    I recently ordered chesty rub in preparation for winter and not only two days after it arrived, my 2 year old developed a cold! We started using it straight away and rubbed it on her chest and soles of her feet at night. Her sniffles were gone by the end of the next day. The smell is lovey, and I feel happy that this product is not harmful for her at all.

    My kids have had been sick since last season. Wanted to try a non toxic and gentle rub to ease their coughs and blocked noses at night. Kids are asthmatic and have allergies and chest rub doesn’t irritate their skin or ‘burn’ like big brands.

    Love this as an alternative to the other Chemical laden Chest rub creams on the market. So happy to have a product that I’m confident is assisting to clear my kids airways not congesting them further with nasties. Beautiful texture and scent, not too strong smelling but 100% effective for clearing the nasal congestion when used on chest. Would love to rub on my kids feet but they both laugh hysterically and wriggle too much causing a little too much excitement before bed (Trying to offset with using Sleepy head) 😉

    Absolutely LOVE the Chesty Rub!! After Being sick with the flu for nearly 2 weeks and spending over half of each night awake coughing, I ordered the Chesty Rub which arrived within only a few days of ordering. I started using it the night I received it and was able to sleep without any coughing!! Best of all only a very small amount was needed to get such an excellent result (although I did have to explain this to my nearly 5 year old after he covered the whole top of his feet, half way up his legs and his chest with it)!! He now asks for it to be put on everyday he’s at school which I totally LOVE! Thank you for such an amazing product that I can’t recommend highly enough!!

    My sons are autistic and it’s a fight to use the usual store bought vapour rubs, they react to the heat & the smell.

    We purchased the Chesty Rub not knowing what to expect in honesty as we had such bad experiences with shop brought chest rubs, they flared our 3 sons excema and their asthma up, we decided to try the Chesty Rub after reading it had no chemicals in it and what an absolutely amazing product it has been. With 3 sick boys and hubby it has helped them breathe better at night , it eases the coughing within 10 minutes and as a mother it feel so good knowing its all natural oils that im putting on my families skin. Our only regret is not finding this product sooner , thank you so much!

    I have had a long run of my children getting sick and yes yet another one today. I have put this lovely Rub on my sons chest for a good night sleep. He was coughing earlier and I had put a bit on his throat and his cough didn’t come back. He loved the minty smell….Love it so far….and loving all the goodness in your products. I already feel like a better mum.
    “Time for a rant”………. Im just sick of depending on the chemist shelves items that are meant to be helping us but slowly poising us and our kids. Thank you, you clever little chookies, good stuff…. Your products are in my house for good. Hooray!!!!!
