Well, I don't know how or why it worked but it worked. Good old Ben Gay! I put this patch on my neck and it really gave me some relief. It made me remember what used to be in my Mother's doctor bag at home. She only had a few simple and inexpensive items but they seemed to do the trick.
As I thought about this I remembered I have many of these in my own cabinet. I don't remember using them all that much on my own children, but by the looks of these bottles they have been used. Mercurochrome was for cuts, Campho Phenique for mosquito bites, peroxide for open scraped knees to bubble and boil out the germs. And last but not least pepto bismol for stomach aches and bowel ailments. Oh yes alka seltzer, we still use also.
Now if they could just put the scent of lavender in these they would be even better.
Several errands to run and hopefully some lawn mowing to do if the rain holds off, so I am off about my day for now. I hope to remember or have time to do a post about The Fugitive movie I watched last night. Too long of a tale for now.
