Homemade Nutmeg Chest Cold Remedy

My dear old great-grandmother, born in 1870's, used a nutmeg poultice for cold congestion relief. I have used it, too, and it works!

Use a piece of cotton flannel, about 1 foot square, and smear lard or goose grease on half of it. Sprinkle generously with nutmeg spice and fold the clean side over this. Heat or warm (I use my microwave today). Pin to your nightclothes over the chest. There is something about its pungency that has given relief for five generations.
