Turnip Poultice

Source: Papers On Health

Part of a raw turnip is grated down to a pulp. As
much of this is prepared as will cover the inflamed part. It is put on
next the skin, and covered with a soft cloth. All is then tied nicely
up in another cloth. In violent inflammation of the knee joint, this is
a most valuable soothing application. Placed on discoloured and
shrivelled skin, it is marvellously curative. When applied, the patient
must be thoroughly warm. This warmth must be maintained while the
poultice is on, as it has a powerful cooling effect.
