How to make vicks inhaler?

Have you ever been hit by the flu and wished you had something that could relieve the congestion in your nose so you can finally breathe again? Well, look no further as I bring you this guide on how to make your very own Vicks inhaler from scratch. Yes, that’s right, folks! We’re going to be making our own version of the magical remedy known for easing nasal congestion and providing relief from coughs.

What is a Vicks Inhaler?

Before we delve straight into making this life-saving stick, let’s briefly discuss what it is. The original Vicks inhaler is a small tube containing menthol which helps one breathe more easily when congested. It has become increasingly popular over time due to its effectiveness in reducing nasal blockage caused by allergies or infections.

Step 1: Get Your Ingredients Ready

Now onto the exciting bit – getting our ingredients ready! For starters, here are some things you’ll need:

  • Empty plastic lip balm tubes
  • Menthol crystals
  • Eucalyptus oil
  • Peppermint oil
  • Coconut oil

Make sure all three oils have therapeutic grade quality as they work better than just regular essential oils, and Menthol Crystals are crucial for achieving that signature powerful scent synonymous with Vicks Vaporub.

Oh, before I forget; get ready with warm water because handling menthol crystals require gloves or else prepare yourself for an involuntary peppermint piercing sensation (chaos guaranteed).

Step 2: Prepare Your Lip Balm Tubes

One thing about homemade products – presentation counts! Grab your set of empty lip balm tubes (you can buy them online) and clean every single one thoroughly using hot water prior to use.

Once cleaned properly allow each tube dry out completely or wipe down each chamber properly with tissue paper, whichever is convenient.

Step 3: The Menthol Crystal Melt Down

Now that the tiresome tube preparation has been done let’s kick things up a notch! Insert a handful of Menthol Crystals into an microwaveable glass bowl, add around 1 teaspoon of coconut oil and mix together.

Pop your mixture in the microwave for about ten seconds on high heat.

As soon as you begin to see crystals melting immediately remove from the oven and continue stirring until all have melted properly.

Note: I said one teaspoons because menthol crystals are VERY potent (you don’t want to end up dehydrating yourself). Always start small with any unfamiliar substance before increasing quantity.

Step 4: All About Oils!

This next step involves adding essential oils; these ingredients will give our inhaler its signature scent/vapour sensation. Prepare another clean glass bowl while we explain further:

  • Add approximately two-thirds part Eucalyptus Oil
  • Add roughly one-third part Peppermint Oil
    (These ratios always vary based on preference)

Mix both together gently, ensuring they blend well after which quickly pour them into the dissolved menthol crystal/Coconut oil mix thoroughly whilst still melted until contents turn completely translucent.

Once this is achieved pour each finished liquid mixture directly into already cleaned lip balm tubes using droppers or syringes for precision.

Optional Tip Cover filled empty containers with a clean cloth/handkerchief so liquids can cool off not merely harden super quick before proceeding onto cleaning time-consuming stains later (which become much harder when set).
