Getting a blister or a splinter sucks, especially when you've still got a lot of work to do and don't have the option to stop and baby your boo-boo. For that, there is this poultice, which will sooth your wound and keep you moving forward.
What makes this poultice recipe much cooler is the fact that it's an actual recipe passed down from grandmother to granddaughter, and isn't just the pseudoscientific ravings of a hippie “alternative medicine ‘doctor.'”
While it may not seem like the most logical combination of ingredients, the reason many of these recipes survive the generations is because they seem to work. So give it a shot.
