1 to 2 tablespoon flour
water

Directions:
Directions:
Mix the above ingredients using enough water to make a medium thick paste. On a piece of flannel, spread the mixture in the center. Fold so that the plaster is inside the material. Let patient sit/lie with this on their chest just until it begins to turn red. (Do not let it become to red, as this will burn the skin) Remove the plaster and rub area with Vick's Mentholatum. Do the same process on the back of the patient. When you have rubbed the Vick's on the patient, be sure to cover them up well. This is because they are all opened up and could easily become chilled.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Use 2 tablespoon flour and 1 tablespoon mustard for small children. This is an old recipe used for colds and congestion. Can be placed on the soles of the feet but the effect is lessened. THIS REALLY WORKS!
