Mustard Plaster Recipe

A folk remedy for relieving chest congestion due to colds. Caution: Discontinue use immediately in case of allergic reaction. Dried Mustard

1 tablespoon dry mustard
1/4 cup flour (for adults) or 6 tablespoons flour (for children)
Lukewarm water

Sift together the mustard and flour in a medium-size bowl. Slowly add just enough water to make a paste. Spread the plaster on a piece of muslin big enough to cover the chest area. Place another piece of muslin on top.

To use, make sure the skin is dry, then place the mustard plaster on the chest. Check frequently and when the skin begins turning red, usually after 10 to 20 minutes, remove the plaster. (Do not use for more than 30 minutes at a time). Rub the area with petroleum jelly to hold in the heat. Use the plaster twice a day until the congestion clears up.
