Decongest your Chest
The most common use of Skinner's Salve is to decongest your chest and throat area. When applied to the upper chest, it provides excellent relief of cough and congestion symptoms.
Achy Breaky Muscles
Skinner's Salve relieves sore, overworked muscles. It increases circulation and provides almost instant aid. Use a generous portion and apply it all over the aching area. (Be sure to warn your bed-mate.)
Whether you have a cold sore or can feel one ready to start, rub a little Skinner's Salve on the area numerous times a day until the area is clear.You will
be amazed at the effect the salve has on cold sores!
Humidify Your Sleep
Skinner's Salve can be used in special types of humidifiers and vaporizers. Ensure your humidifier has an aromatherapy compartment before using. The humidifier will circulate Skinner's throughout the air and keep you breathing easy all night long.
Paper Cuts and Splinters
To prevent infection and speed up healing time, dab a small amount of Skinner's on any small cut or splinter.
On your tooties
Applying Skinner's Salve to your feet provides nighttime cough relief. Generously rub Skinner's all over your feet and cover them with socks. Within moments your cough will subside, and in the morning you will wake up a new, hacking free person.
Headaches Be Gone
Rub a small amount of Skinner's Salve on your temples and forehead to help relieve headaches. The mentholated scent will release pressure in your head and instantly relieve pain.
Ticks and Bugs
If you get bitten by a tick, apply Skinner's immediately. The strong odor might help get the critter to release itself and stop bugging you.
Go Away Mosquitoes
Skinner's wards off mosquitoes. Apply small dabs of Skinner's Salve to your skin and clothes and mosquitoes will steer clear. If you do get bitten, apply Skinner's to the area and cover it with a Band-Aid to relieve itching.
Get Rid of Nasty Nail Fungus
Rub Skinner's Salve on your toenails if you suspect you have a fungus. Within days, the nail will turn dark, this means the Salve is killing the fungus.
As your toenail grows out, the dark part will grow off and you will have fungus-free feet. Keep applying the ointment over a period of two weeks to fully
cleanse nail beds of any remaining bacteria.
Stop Your Cat from Scratching
Cats are notorious for scratching every hard surface they get their claws on. To prevent Miss Kitty from ruining your doors, walls, and windows, apply a
small amount of Skinner's Salve to these areas. Cats detest the smell and will steer clear. Skinner's can also be applied to your arms and legs if your kitty is prone to scratching you.
Pet Pee-Pee Deterrent
If your dog or cat is not yet potty trained, put an open jar of Skinner's Salve on the area he or she likes to mark as their territory. The smell will discourage them from lifting their legs and wetting your rug.
