We are now in the depths of winter.
Our Saarinen Organics Chest Rub is a warming and comforting blend of essential oils to help you relax and breath deeply. My daughter says “it’s like a warm hug” with an uplifting aroma of our Australian bush.
I blend our Chest Rub with local low heated beeswax, certified organic olive oil and certified organic essential oils of Eucalyptus, Rosemary, T-tree (Cajput), Rosalina, Peppermint, and Lavender.
Furthermore, you can put these essential oils into a burner to help with the winter blues.
The following are extracts from research on essential oils.
Happy reading from Kay Saarinen.

“Eucalyptus works as an expectorant and helps cleanse your body of toxins and harmful microorganisms that can make you feel sick.” From Dr Axe.
“Rosemary essential oil is known to relieve respiratory disorders such as whooping cough, asthma, sinus infections, and bronchitis.” From Doctors Health Press.
“Tea tree oil has been found to exhibit protective activity against bacteria, fungi, and yeast, according to a 2000 study from a German research team (3). These microbes can cause inflammation, which depletes the immune system and leads to symptoms including coughs and congestion. Fortunately, tea tree oil contains antimicrobial, antiseptic, and antiviral properties. It’s a great essential oil for sore throats, coughs, and bronchial congestion.” From Doctors health Press.
“Peppermint is an essential oil best known for its antiseptic, antiviral, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antispasmodic, and expectorant properties. Peppermint is a common treatment for sinus infections, respiratory infections, coughs, colds, and sore throats. A study published in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology in 2010 (2) suggests that the antispasmodic activity in peppermint oil helps relieve coughing. The menthol in peppermint oil is thought to calm and soothe sore throats, while also relieving coughs by thinning mucus.” From Doctors Health Press.
“Lavender is one of the most common essential oils available. It’s especially useful for respiratory disorders and symptoms such as colds, influenza, coughs, and sinus congestion; it can ease breathing problems when phlegm is trapped within the sinuses and lungs. Apply a few drops of lavender oil on the back, neck, or chest for relief.” From Doctors Health Press.
“Rosalina essential oil is an excellent oil for upper respiratory tract congestion and infection, particularly useful with small children. It is a gentle expectorant with anti-infectious properties because of its 1,8 cineole chemical content. This essential oil is extremely gentle on the mucous membranes as well as the skin.” From Still Point Aromatics.

I’ve been using Saarinen Organics for the past 8 years, all their products are amazing. I love thats it’s all natural local and Kay makes each product herself, I know what’s in it and it’s safe for my kids with no chemicals. Her calendula cream is awesome with her chest rub having an amazing smell and her face creams are so glorious to put on, once you’ve used her products you’ll never use anything else again.

I recently bought a pot of chest rub and love it, more effective than vicks and without the chemicals that I was intolerant to. I already have others lined up to by this product as well.
