Chop 100g mature eucalyptus leaves and grate 10g of fresh ginger(no need to peel). Place in a heatproof bowl with half tsp ground black pepper, add 200g petroleum jelly (vaseline) and mush them all together.
Cover the glass bowl and place over a pan of boiling water (like melting chocolate), leave for 1 hour, making sure that the water doesn't boil dry.
Turn off the heat and strain the mixture - easiest way to do this is through muslin, so that you can really wring out as much of the mixture as possible. Stir in 20 drops of peppermint essential oil. Bottle in small wide mouthed jars.
This is excellent for blocked sinuses and head colds, rub on to chest and throat, especially before bed.
TA, if you have a Facebook account or Twitter or any of them newfangled things, and you enter it on your profile " then the appropriate symbol appears.
They should link to that account. Shelley's Facebook one works OK " or it would if she typed it in correctly
Never knowingly underfed
TA yes I have a facebook a/c. The reason it didn't link from here to it was because I had put a . between my first and surnames which doesn't marry up with my facebook identity but I have now deleted my facebook details from my csh profile.
I have reached an age where my train of thought often leaves the station without me...
