Don't use petroleum rubs, use this instead!

Over the counter menthol ointments are based with petroleum... a by-product of gasoline!! No thank you!! This salve is made with NATURAL menthol crystals that come the mint plant! Combine and infuse that with Eucalypus and Lavender and they work together to clear congestion, relieve tightness in the chest, open airways and relive sinus pressure. It's a petroleum-free alternative to common Vapor Rubs. Rub on chest and breath the vapors deeply. Keep away from eyes. Not recommended for babies or young children.*

NOTE: This product "activates" when it touches your skin. The smell of menthol inside the tin will be subtle, but when applied to your skin, it will amplify!


  • 4 oz round metal tin (3" wide by 1" tall): Net Wt 3.5 oz

  • .5 oz round metal tin (1.5" wide x .75" tall): Net Wt .5 oz (same size as tins in First Aid Kit)

  • Salve Color... This salve is a beautiful creamy white!


My salves are released in small homemade batches after a special (and proprietary) infusion process that took me 6 years to develop! My goal is to move as much of the natural medicinal goodness as I can from the herbs into the oil... and the result is a whole line of salves that have been uniquely currated to be surprisingly effective! In our home, we grab a salve before we EVER pop a pill!

❤ ABOUT MENTHOL CRYSTALS: These carefully crafted crystals are a 100% natural product that originate from cornmint (Mentha arvensis). The high content menthol within the plant crystallizes during a freezing and distillation process. Menthol Crystal vapors promote easier breathing, temporarily relieve nasal congestion, soothe sore throats, alleviate fever symptoms, coughs, headaches, and sinus discomforts.  

❤  ABOUT EUCALYPUTS: This essential oil has wide-ranging health benefits including decongestant, anti-inflammatory, anti-spasmodic, anti-septic, anti-fungal, anti-microbial, anti-viral, and anti-bacterial properties making it a great addition to any vapor rub or salve!

❤  ABOUT CAMPHOR: Camphor (extracted from the wood of the Camphor Tree) is known to offer relief to a congested respiratory system by clearing the lungs and addressing symptoms of bronchitis and pneumonia. It also boosts circulation, immunity, convalescence, and relaxation. It's also known to relieve pain, relieve irritation and is anti-inflammatory, anti-spasmodic and decongestant. 


  • WHAT IS THE SHELF LIFE? The shelf life of the oil in the salve is 1-2 years. However, to enjoy its medicinal benefits the most, I recommend using within a year.

  • HOW MUCH SALVE SHOULD I USE? In general, consider using a "small glop" the size of a pump or two of lotion and apply over the affected area 2-3x daily as needed (use less if it's a tiny area, of course)! In general, a minor topical skin issue will use much less salve than a joint or muscle issue where you are massaging the salve in. See my website or check your product label for specific application recommendations.

  • ARE SALVES SAFE FOR BABIES & SENSITIVE SKIN? I haven't conducted FDA approved clinical trials, so I can't label my salves as "for sensitive skin" or "baby safe." But, I can tell you MANY of my close friends and family use my salves on themselves and their families OFTEN & REGULARLY with great success and confidence. Just like with ANY new skin care product, there is always a potential for allergies or irritation... so test a small area first before using regularly or on a larger area. If you have KNOWN allergies, take note of the ingredient list provided on each label. And, of course, discontinue use if any kind of reaction or irritation occurs. Salves with menthol crystals, camphor, peppermint and eucalyptus are NOT intended for young children and babies.

  • A NOTE ABOUT CONSISTENCY: Depending on the temperatures where you live, your salve will arrive with a general consistency between a neosporin-type oinment and a slightly firm vaseline. Softness of the salve will vary based on your particular climate and seasonal temperature. Since the salve contains beeswax, avoid leaving in a hot car or in the sun to prevent melting. Your tin will be shrink wrapped to prevent any dripping if it does happen to soften during transit. If melting does occur, simply put it in the refrigerator to return it to its normal consistency.

✱ DISCLAIMER... These statements have not been evaluated by the FDA. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN. For external use only. Product use suggestions are informational and is not medical advice. As with any skin care product - there is always potential for allergies. Review the ingredient list & test a small amount on your skin prior to normal use.

Cold & Congestion

Helps during allergy season when I get so stuffy.

Kristin Day
I can breathe!

I love using this at night and when I wake up in the morning. It helps me to breathe easier, not feel stuffed up, and works great!!

It Works!

I have not personally used the Cold and Congestion salve. However, I had two granddaughters that we quite congested and they rubbed some of the salve onto their upper chests and almost immediately they both said, "Ohhh, I can breathe easily again!!"

Cold saver

When you get the sniffles, grab this to help ease cold and sniffles where they start


This works wonderful for me! I put some under my nose before bedtime. It helps reduce the sinus headaches I seem to have every morning

Danielle P
Helped when I needed it most

This stuff is absolutely amazing. Congestion, add a little too your chest and feel the relief instantly. Thank you from when I needed it most!!

Life saver!

I have asthma and this year it has been the worse in 20 years. In November everyone in the house got sick with the flu! It was a killer on me, flaring up my asthma. I could not have gotten through the miserable weeks without the Cold & Congestion salve. It made all the difference!!


I have had a headache all day and nothing helped. I put some of this from my First Aide kit on my temples and across my forehead, as well as across my sinuses. I have no headache at all now. I am a believer!


My little one got a cold this week, usually coughing keeps him up all night, I usually use Vicks, but since I bought this, decided to give it a try….

Works wonders! Smells amazing! And NO petroleum!!!
