In this season of H1N1 and all other sorts of yucky bugs, I thought I’d share a recipe shared with me several years ago. It is your basic old fashioned mustard plaster. (and in case you are wondering…it’s safe for children too!)
10 level TBSP of flour
1 level TBSP of dry mustard
Mix with enough water to form a paste.
Put olive oil on your chest area and then spread the paste on top of that.
Cover with a towel and go lay down and relax. (I prop myself up on pillows so I can breathe easier.)
Leave on for 15 minutes or until skin starts to turn pink (prior to the 15 minute mark). Rinse with mild soap and water. Repeat up to 2 times per day.
It does start to burn after a bit, but nothing unbearable. However, DO NOT try to leave it on any longer than 15 minutes!
We are all finally well here! Praise the Lord! But, I know so many others who are still suffering through with various bugs.
I must admit I am more wary of being out and about in public places than I can ever remember being in years past. So, before leaving me a comment, please be sure and wash your hands thoroughly. ;o)
