Type Master Tonic into google and it comes up with 2,040,000 hits. Must be something with it!

For years I thought that caster oil was simply used as a medical testing reagent. If I were sick enough to stay home from school I would accept the spoon. If I would not let that spoon in my mouth, I was healthy enough to go to school.

Sounds like one of them "cure or kill" remedies.

My wife used to whomp up some concoctions like that. They didn't always work, but she THOUGHT they did because whatever it was that was ailing me, I'd NEVER complain about it again after I tasted the stuff she mixed up.

Maybe it is related to the old asafetida bag that country folks used to tie around the neck of their kids to get rid of winter ailments.

We had a kid named Fred in my sixth grade class that occasionally had the honor of wearing one tucked down inside his heavy flannel shirts. He also had the honor of sitting right next to the steam radiators that old schools were equipped with. (showing my age, I guess!)

Now, those old radiators were somewhat slow to heat up, but when they finally got going, they put out some huge amounts of heat right next to them. Fred, being a hefty individual, would also heat up and and begin to sweat - emitting a fog of asafetida odor that the Vicks Vaporub manufacturer would have envied.

I never figured out whether Fred"s swift recoveries were from the home remedy or from the sincere prayers of 35 classmates pleading for his swift healing. Either way, he generally recovered within the week and we would allow him to rejoin our lunch table group that was situated far, far away from any radiators!

Now,

I just use a mixture of Zev and hot water. Works every time.

Dad's remedy for any ailment was a big spoonful of blackstrap molasses--same stuff he got in drums to feed the chickens. It stunted my growth, I might have been really big instead of 6'3" & 250# if I hadn't had that stuff.
