folk remedy sick room hints

    For Poison Ivy
    Two heaping teaspoonfuls boric acid dissolved in a tumblerful of hot water, mop on the part affected, let dry without wiping, then apply zinc ointment. Twice or three times a day is sufficient.
    For Ivy Poison
    For Ivy Poison apply sweet oil or moistened baking soda
    For Insect Stings
    Apply weak amonia, oil, iodine, or salt water.
    For a Rash
    One teaspoon of Epsom Salt in half a glass of cold water. Apply freely. For Hives
    Rub the irritated skin with castor oil with the finger tips. Relief is quick, often baby will fall asleep during the treatment. For adults take teaspoonful of flour in a glass of water. Repeat several timess a day until relieved. Hives are caused by too much acid in the blood and flour counteracts this.

These sweets pies recipes are a collection of recipes that I have gathered over the years. If I can remember where I got the recipe from I will try and credit the source. Many origins of these sweets pies recipes are unknown. This was one of my dad's family's favorite cookbook.
