My Backwoods Grandma never shared her "Remedies", passed away many years now. She boiled Tea and Tobacco Leaves to a thick paste and added Pine Tar but all other ingredients is unknown to me. She'd dip Cheesecloth strips and wrap my neck and put me to bed with a pot of water on the stovepipe and a bunch of quilts. Next morning, Pneumonia, Bronchitis and/whatever ailed one was gone! The concoction stank to high heaven. Anyone else know what Louisiana Folks used?
