DIY Vick's scented wax for colds Melt unscented wax candle, pour into ice cube tray, add 6 drops each of eucalyptus, peppermint and rosemary essential oils. Allow to harden. Pop out and store in containers. Melt in warmer when someone has a cold in place of rubbing Vicks on.
Use candle wax before spray painting to give that worn look.
If you wake up with a sore throat, and begin to feel a cold coming on, mix hot water, 2-tablespoons honey, 2-tablespoon vinegar, dash of cinnamon, and 2 tablespoons of lemon juice, mix well, and drink, you will feel better within the hour! ...because I'll do anything to not get sick!
my mom does this-Cleaning fruit - fill sink with water, add 1 C. vinegar, mix. Add all fruit and soak for 10 minutes. Water will be dirty and fruit will sparkle with no wax or dirty film. Great for Berries too--keeps them from molding. I do this with strawberries and they last for weeks!
When toddler or baby is stuffed up from a cold, this is an amazing way to give them relief throughout the day or as they sleep add a table spoon of Vicks and a table spoon of water to your scentsy or any warmer, bam simple and easy and effective.
