Blast from the Past Day Two

I know a lot of you love to work out in the garden in the spring, summer and fall. I have the perfect salve recipe just for you. You can make it in your own home with easy to find ingredients. LOL propably not.. might have to look for that rosin!!

Homemade Salve
Melt together 1/2 pound lard.
1/4 lb rosin
1/4 pound beeswax
one ounce camphor.

Melt all items together.. after hot and melted take it from the stove and ad a little turpentine
when almost cold.

Furniture Polish:
These instructions are from the 1800's. Equal parts of turpentine, paraffin oil and apple vinegar.

I don't recommend this one!!! EVER!!!
Can you say tetanus shot???
That is what you should be getting in 2011 :o)

An old Indian Remedy for Lockjaw:
Take a plug of strong smoking tobacco, soak in hot water. Split plug and bind it on the pit of the patient's stomach (he is laying on his back). This will make him sick at the stomach and the jaws will open. If need be, repeat the process next day, soaking the same tobacco and apply as before.

Please don't use these recipes, if they are for ingestion..
They are for entertainment only..

I don't have a clue if they will hurt you.. but medicine has came along way since these recipes have been written out!!!
