How to Make a Mustard Plaster

by dawnzlight

This is a short video that shows me making a mustard pack for treating chest congestion.

What you need: 1 cup flour, hot water, 2 tablespoons dry mustard and a cloth.

Mix flour and mustard well, add enough hot water to make a spreadable paste. Spread paste across clean towel and fold.

Lay the plaster across your chest for about 20 minutes or until the congestion breaks.

Lung Congestion

My three brothers and I grew up out in the Country, where you couldn't run to the Doc, every time you wanted. I just know it even cured us of every type of lung congestion one could get.

I cant thank you enough for this recipe for a mustard plaster. My mother did it when we were kids but she is long gone. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

We have always used equal amounts of dry mustard powder, baking soda and flour and added warm water to make a spreadable paste to apply on clean cloth and then applied it to chest. We find that the duration of its strength is about 15 minutes. Watch for redness as a plaster can burn if left on too long.

One time a friend made a mustered plaster for a respiratory cold that had gone down into my lymp glands. It went across my neck at the throat..but left it there all night and I felt 100 percent well. I had a fever and it was gone too.
