I’ve spent most of the week with a cold. Not fun at all in summer!

I can’t stand the smell of store bought vapour rubs. I think it brings up too many memories of being sick as a child. I loooooove the smell of eucalyptus though so have made my own rub.

I have some in a little tub but also filled some lip gloss tubes so I can use it under my nose easily and keep in my handbag.
