Thanks @Lois Winters !! I'm looking forward to trying this.
I saw on Youtube yesterday that castor oil is good for your hair. Just apply after washing, like you would a conditioner, leave on a couple of minutes and rinse. (Just don't accidentally swallow any.............)
Ick. If that stuff still smells like I remember, I certainly don't want it in my hair.
I have no recollection of what it smells like. Maybe I'll skip the 'treatment'.
That wasn't what my grandma used it on me for.
If you get stung by a bee, wasp, etc. put a dab of liniment on it. It will draw the poison out quickly. This absolutely works. I have done that many times. My little Bubba was running across the yard a couple of years ago and fell on top of a yellowjacket nest. He was stung multiple times. I grabbed him up and ran to the house, stripping his clothes off as I ran. He was screaming with pain. As soon as I got into the house, I took the liniment and dabbed it onto the stings. In five minutes, the swelling was gone and he had stopped crying. Then I dabbed some on my stings and in a few minutes, they stopped hurting.
My grandfather once ran a big 'ol rusty nail right through the bottom of his boot and right through the top of his foot. He had no feeling in that foot and could have been walking on it all day.
Instead of getting a tetanus shot, he just soaked the foot in kerosene for an hour.
He didn't get lockjaw.....
I stepped on a nail years ago.
It didn't go all the way through my foot, but pretty deep. Several hours later, intense pain that wasn't phased by OTC painkillers.
I've heard some "old timers" talk about using diesel fuel for the same purpose but I wouldn't try it today because of all the additives being used.
I'm not sure I know what liniment is?
"Liniment" refers to many topical pain relievers to be rubbed on sore muscles. They tended to be strong-smelling and often greasy.
My grandmother used Witch Hazel for sore muscles. That was the worst smelling stuff. You could smell it at the front door before you even went into the house. I think I would rather live with being sore than smell it all day.
@Shirley Martin That doesn't even LOOK like it smells good.
Sometimes the best things in life don't smell good.
