One has a cold but one mustn't moan. Even when my nose is so red it is making small children laugh out loud and the sun is cracking the flags
Never mind. Lets do something constructively puttery instead. How about whipping up some of the BrocanteHome version of Vicks' vapour rub?
2oz Petroleum Jelly
6 Drops of Lavender Oil
6 Drops of Eucalyptus Oil
4 Drops of Camphor Oil
Melt the jelly in a bain marie and stir in the aromatherapy oils. Decant into a pretty little vintage container (Tiny little pill boxes are ideal) and allow to set.
Breathe deeply now.
