This recipe came from Ilene Pogue who went to nursing college with Aunt Kay (Moms sister, Uncle Nicks wife) She said it was a cure for cough and to stimulate circulation to lungs.
Mix mustard and flour and add enough water to make a paste, spread on flannel and then lay it on chest. It can burn so remove if it gets uncomfortable. You can make it stronger by eliminating some of the flour. Wash chest with soap and water when you take it off. Usually can leave 15 to 20 minutes Kids have more tender skin so watch it.
