This 100% natural chest rub with eucalyptus & lavender is the perfect addition to your winter medicine cabinet. Free from petroleum and menthol, it is safe to use on babies as young as 3 months old. Our chest rub combines the powerful healing properties of eucalyptus, tea tree, lavender and frankincense, to gently ease congestion in your little one.
- Eucalyptus – a very popular decongestant which contains powerful anti-bacterial and antibiotic properties. Used for hundreds of years, it is widely accepted as a natural alternative to treat mild respiratory problems such as a cold, cough or bronchitis.
- Lavender – has soothing and calming properties. It is also considered an effective antiseptic and anti-inflammatory.
- Tea Tree Leaf Oil – anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties, making it an ideal ingredient to help protect against congestion caused by colds and flu.
- Frankincense – has remarkable rejuvenating and healing qualities. With antiseptic, astringent, anti-inflammatory and expectorant properties, it is the ideal cold-fighting essential oil.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Massage a small amount onto the chest, neck and back, especially before bedtime.

WHY NO MENTHOL FOR BABIES?
The menthol praised in most chest rub formulations does not break up mucus in the airways as advertised. The smell of menthol tricks the brain into thinking we are breathing easier, but it does not actually assist in clearing congestion. Inflammation often worsens. Certain ingredients are recognised as irritants to the body, causing the body to produce more mucus to protect its airways. In babies and young children this is especially dangerous, considering their airways are much narrower than those of adults.
Whilst we recommend the use of the Pure Beginnings Natural Chest Rub to help your child with congestion, we also recommend the following to assist with nasal congestion:
- Use a cool mist humidifier in the bedroom at night to keep nasal mucus from drying and blocking the nose
- Saline drops may help loosen mucus
- Wipe away excess mucus with soft, dry cloth.
ELLA’S TOP TIP
“Extra moisture is essential in keeping nasal mucus from drying and blocking the nose. A cool mist humidifier in the bedroom at night may help ease coughing and congestion.”

WHAT OTHER PEOPLE SAY
This is the chest rub I prefer to rub on by baby’s chest, back and feet, when he starts to have a runny nose. It helps to keep his nose open and assists with breathing easily. I love the natural ingredients which I believe help prevent worsening symptoms.
WHAT OTHER PEOPLE SAY
I absolutely love this product not only as a chest rub with its subtle fragrance but my daughter is allergic to spider bites and this helps with the itching like majorly. When she has a itch she collects the balm herself to rub on.
WHAT OTHER PEOPLE SAY
My 16 month recently caught her first head cold. She loved the night time routine of rubbing this on her chest after her bath. It smells great and really helped clear her stuffy nose up!
