Organic Chest Balm

Organic, 100% pure, Therapeutic Quality Essential Oils

Chest Balm


Best organic decongestant boosting and cough suppressing essential oils commonly found in Vick’s Vaporub infused in a soothing organic beeswax base in place of toxic PETROLEUM jelly and turpentine! During periods of congestion, our bodies cry out for the time-tested support of camphor acting as a cough suppressant and topical analgesic, aided by congestion-busting eucalyptus oil and menthol. Our Chest Balm intentionally carries on Vick’s trusted tradition in a modern, healthful way.

Vicks Vaporub has been a trusted cold remedy for over 100 years. Yet modern science identifies petroleum-based personal care ingredients as endocrine disruptors linked to cancer and autoimmune diseases. Enter the Heirloom Apothecary Chest Balm, a fusion of ancient wisdom with modern science to produce an untainted alternative to Vick’s Vaporub.

All our products are free from, harmful chemicals, toxins, synthetic fragrances/colorants, hardeners, or chemical preservatives

Product Care

To avoid heat and light that can degrade any oil over time, we recommended that you keep essential oils in a cool, dry place. Kitchen and bathroom cupboards can work well. Our cobalt glass bottles allow for protected everyday usage. Storage away from direct sunlight is always recommended. Best when used within one year of purchase.

How to Use

  • When congestion grips your head, ears, or chest:
  • Rub a layer of Chest Balm on your chest and neck only. Loosen any clothing around your chest and throat so that vapors can rise to your nose area.
  • For ear congestion, rub in a “V” in front of and in back of the ear (outside of the ear cartilage).
  • Drape a warm, dry cloth over your head to trap the vapors while sitting upright or standing.
  • Repeat, if needed, up to three times in a 24-hour period.
