This recipe was submitted by Jeanne Riley,  LMT, CPMT of Renewal Therapeutic Massage of Easton.  

Jeanne tells us, “My favorite recipe of all time is not one that you eat.  This recipe you wear.   There is little more frustrating than rushing around during the holidays only to be stopped short by an injury.  This recipe, given to me by my doctor following an ankle sprain, will get you up and running quickly.”


Healing Poultice 

Ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp.    Fresh Grated Ginger
  • 2 tbsp.    Flour
  • 2 tsp.      White vinegar
  • 1              Egg

 

Mix all ingredients until it forms a soft poultice.  

If it is too runny add a little more flour so that it is spreadable.  

Spread the mixture onto a half folded paper towel and wrap the injured area with the paper towel, then wrap the area with an ace bandage.  

Leave on for several hours to overnight.  

For acute injuries, R.I.C.E  first (rest, ice, compress, elevate).

If you are unsure of the extent of your injury or if there is potentially a broken bone, always check with your doctor first.
