How can I make an old-fashioned mustard poultice to clear up bronchial and chest congestion?
Combine four parts linseed oil, one part mustard flour, and enough lukewarm water to make a paste. (Use six parts linseed oil for a child’s poultice.) Place a piece of muslin on your chest and cover it with the paste. Do not leave the poultice in place any longer than about 20 minutes.
