Gentle Back Rub Essential Oil Blend for Kids with Coughs and Colds

by Andrea Butje on January 24, 2019

3. January 2019 Content - Youtube Title -Gentle Back Rub Oil for Kid Cough and Colds  -  600 x 900 Roman Chamomile and Balsam Fir just hate to see kids suffering.

If there is anything they can do to help, they want to be right there. (I can relate . . . it is not easy seeing kids so uncomfortable!)

And since these two friends have become masters at soothing coughs and colds, they decided to create an essential oil blend to help kids in this way.

This is their favorite Back Rub Essential Oil Blend for Kids with Coughs and Colds (there’s an adult version below, too!) Roman Chamomile and Balsam Fir teach parents to use this blend for kids who can’t stop coughing, who are sniffling or have stuffy noses, or who feel achy and sore all over because they’re sick.

Here’s the essential oil blend . . .

Cough & Cold Back Rub Blend for Kids!

  • 1 oz (30 ml) jojoba (Simmondsia chinensis)
  • 3 drops Balsam Fir essential oil (Abies balsamea)
  • 3 drops Roman Chamomile essential oil (Chamaemelum nobile)

Make this blend in a 1 oz (30 ml) glass bottle. Combine the jojoba and essential oils, shake gently, and you’re done!

This essential oil blend is perfect for kids with coughs and colds who are at least 5 years old. You can massage it gently into their backs. The drop count is adjusted to be safe for children, so you can feel free to use it as needed. It really can help clear congestion and calm those spastic coughs that don’t seem to let up.

And the aroma is so comforting! It’s warm, floral, a bit fruity (like warm apples), and foresty.

Some kids are used to their medicines not smelling so great . . . how wonderful that this one smells good!

Would you like the adult version, too?

Cough & Cold Back Rub Blend for Grown Ups!

  • 1 oz (30 ml) jojoba (Simmondsia chinensis)
  • 9 drops Balsam Fir essential oil (Abies balsamea)
  • 9 drops Roman Chamomile essential oil (Chamaemelum nobile)

Make the adults’ version of this essential oil blend in the same way as the children’s versions. Just combine your ingredients in a 1 oz (30 ml) bottle.

One thing I love about this blend is that it’s made in jojoba, which has a very long shelf life. It is technically a wax, not an oil, and it doesn’t go rancid.

That means the blend’s shelf life depends on your essential oils. I talk more about this in the YouTube video below, if you want to learn more.

Roman Chamomile and Balsam Fir’s mission to make the world a “cough and cold” free place is underway! Next up . . . try this body oil with Balsam Fir and Black Spruce!
