Mustard plasters


Used for muscle pain, pneumonia. Mustard plasters are moistened with warm water and applied tightly to the skin on the side where the mustard is spread, covering the patient with a blanket, they usually hold 10-15 minutes until burning and redness appear. After removing the mustard, the skin is washed with water, with severe irritation - smeared with petroleum jelly.
In the absence of ready-made mustard, you can cook it yourself: dry mustard is diluted in warm water to a mushy state, this slurry is spread on a cloth, it is also covered with a cloth on top and applied to the body. So that the mustard is not very irritating to the skin and can be kept longer, dry mustard can be pre-mixed with an equal amount of flour (preferably rye), it is good to add a little honey. Mustard plasters are sometimes prepared for children, taking flour 2-3 times more than mustard; and when using ready-made mustard, it is recommended to put it not on bare skin, but through a thin diaper, paper.
