Vicks Orally, NOT!  That is one long lasting GREASE and tastes awful. 

I agree, but the "grease" is what lubricates the pain while swallowing - so she says.  

I suppose it makes a soothing vapor inside just as well as outside.   ??? 

 

I never tried it.

>sighhhhh< I was hoping to discover someones secret recipe with this thread. You know: like their great-grandmother would rub their chest with kerosene and wrap their neck with a squirrel.

Does that still work?

Fella just posted on here about some natural seed to clear sinuses.  Fenugreek? or such to make a tee with Honey in it! 

 

 

 

I understand that WallyM has the fenugreek seed. I'll try it and report back when I get some.

Sure does! You have to tape the squirrel in place, though. Otherwise they squirm around.

Crown Royal. It may not get rid of your cold , but you won't care if you have a cold.

I use Buffalo Trace, but you do have to take more of it to get the same result.

Drink it straight. And use whiskey rocks, not ice cubes, for obvious reasons. Don't dilute with water, then you have to drink even more. Don't mix with any soda, that stuff isn't good for you.
