FOR A SORE CHEST. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 23 March 1912
FOR A SORE CHEST. An excellent remedy for a sore chest, a persistent cough, or any condition that needs a gentle, steady irtitation is a mustard .plaster, made to be worn not for a few minutes, but for days at a time if needful. It is made with mustard and lard, in the propor tion of one of mustard and . two of lard, being careful of that measure of lard. Rtub these thoroughly to gether, and spread on a piece of mus lin cut out in the neck, like a child's bib, and large enough to cover the whole region of the lungs. Cover this with another piece cut in the same manner and run a threadn round the edge to keep the mustard from falling out after oil has been absorbed intc the skin. Tie it around the neck by means of tapes at the ruiper corners, and wear it twenty-four hours, and so on as long as it may Ie needed. This plaster never blisters if properly made, and is an excellent application for a sensitive skin that will not bear much irritation. It should he covered on the outside with...
