    I have used mustard for burns for a long time, and it really does work!! It cools the burn, and relieves the pain.  My mom also swears that it’ll prevent blistering, but I’m not sure about that.

  3. Enough that its embarrassing….

  5. Ha! Glad I´m not the only one. ;0)

  6. I not going to say how many I had at one point but I do give a lot if my groceries away to family at Christmas and its taken me a couple of years. Any way I got down to my last 3 jars and started to panic even though I only go thru 1 jar a year lol. Lets just say there was a sale and I´m ok again :))

  7. I have used mustard covered with a gauze overnight to remove a boil under my arm and on my leg. The boil came to a head and busted and healed shortly there after.
