Edgar Cayce Quotes:
"Keep the Icthyol Ointment over those areas where there is the broken tissue, or where there are the irritations."
"In those areas under knees and on hips, where the sores are formed, do keep the Icthyol Ointment."
"The only changes we would give from that being applied would be to use the Ichthyol Ointment on the right limb; that is, the foot, the ankle, the areas where there has been the tenderness by the breaking of those areas that become sore."
"On those irritated places, as on the knee and on the hips, we would continue to use the Ichthyol Ointment."
"... for scratches and itching..."
"This ointment has been a part of my life for over a 1/2 century, and in my mother's family for many, many years previously. It has been drawing out splinters forever. We are so glad to find it again after numerous drug store managers have never even heard of it." - N.M., Elkton, MD
