Natural Vapour Rubs Versus Toxin filled Vapour Rubs

Natural Vapour Rubs Vs Other Toxin Vapour Rubs

It is that time of year again when the coughs, splutters and sniffles grace our bodies…

 So when the common cold hits and you want an all-natural toxin free alternative to the ‘other ‘commercial toxic filled brands there is hope! At The Well Store we stock both natural and organic Vapour Rubs that won’t harm you and leech harsh chemicals into your body. They are even safe enough to use on the little ones in the family.

The Well Store believes that if we are educated in what goes into products we use and how it affects us – especially in the long term, we can and will make informed choices for our health and wellness. So I have put together a quick guide explaining the benefits of using an all-natural Vapour rub versus the other toxin filled commercial brands.


'Other' Brands

These ‘other’ commercial brands which we will leave unnamed are filled with petroleum or Turpentine Oil to relieve the congestion of common colds to help you breathe easier. The fact is that our body absorbs everything we topically apply onto our skin, so there is NO need to use products filled with Petro – Chemicals, when there are options that are completely toxin free!

At The Well Store we have done the research for you and found effective, all natural Vapour Rubs that will work just as well as the ‘Other’ commercial brands but with the added bonus that they are toxin free, safe for you and the whole family to use.

Simple As That Vapour Rub

Simple As That is an Australian company that produces Vegan, Gluten Free and Pharmacist formulated Vapour Rubs created with 100% natural ingredients to give you relief and aid congestion, inflammation and stuffiness. Created with gentle ingredients such as the buttery base of Shea, Coconut Oil and a concentrated blend of pure essential oils which are all known for their anti-bacterial, antiseptic, antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties, this blend will assist in easing the symptoms of the dreaded cold and help you get a restful nights sleep.

This gentle formulation is suitable for all skin types and can be used before bedtime and when needed throughout the day. To use just massage a small amount onto the back and chest.

 Simple As That Baby Vapour Rub

This product is the same as the original Simple As That Vapour Rub but has been formulated at half the adult strength to be gentle enough to be used on the delicate skin of a newborn. The Simple As That Baby Vapour Rub is a natural blend of essential oils that will ease the symptoms of a cold whilst helping your little one get a sound nights sleep.

This can be used 2 – 3 times per day and before bedtime. To use, gently massage a small amount onto your baby's chest and back.



Badger – Aromatic Chest Rub

Another amazing natural Vapour Rub that really works is the Badger Aromatic Chest Rub. This is a 100% natural Certified Organic solution to help ease colds, coughs and congestion. The soothing and cooling ingredients of Eucalyptus, Rosemary, and Tea tree oils assist in decongestion to help you breathe easier and get a restful nights sleep. This product can be used as a chest rub and also as a steam inhalant. The Aromatic Chest Rub is safe and effective to use on the whole family. It is made with only Certified Organic ingredients including Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Castor Oil and Beeswax. To use, rub directly onto the chest or for a more concentrated smell it can be applied to the nose and lips. It can also be used as a steam inhalant, put half a teaspoon in a pot of hot water and breathe in the steam.

Thank you for this informative read. I was wondering if these toxins were also found in the liquid form that is used for the vaporizer machine? Is there a non-toxic brand available?
