  1. This works, but it comes in a patch form now…Salonpas!

  2. My great-aunt Mattie would bring us home-made camphorated oil regularly. The last one I remember was in an old SevenUp bottle with a cork in the mouth of the bottle. That stuff would knock bronchitis out in about two minutes well as keep any living thing with a nose about 10 feet away from you!!!

  3. Salonpas patches and the heating pad are my two best friends!

  4. Modern medicine does not have all the answers, so I willing to give some of this a try

  5. Does anyone know where you can still buy Camphorated Oil. My grandmother used that on me when I had an earache. Worked like a charm!
