OLEUM SENECAE
Seneka Oil.

This oil acts as a stimulant, diuretic, discutient and an expectorant. It is highly beneficial in shortness of breath, consumption of the lungs, coughs, indigestion, chronic rheumatism, sciatic pains, backache, and ulcers of the lungs.

Externally it is principally recommended against pains and aches, paralytic complaints, chilblains, rheumatism, bruises, strains, burns and scalds. It is also a very useful remedy in contractions and swelling of the limbs, ulcers, old sores, lameness, inflammation, St. Anthony’s fire, leprosy, tetters, ringworms, warts, shingles and moles on the skin.

Directions for using this oil.
In internal affections a grown person can take a tea-spoonful on a bit of sugar, in wine or in herb tea. Children can take three times as many drops as they are years old. A dose may be taken every morning and evening.

In pains, aches, paralytic complaints, chilblains, rheumatism, contractions and lameness of the limbs, leprosy, tetters, and ringworms, the affected parts are to be bathed every morning and evening, with some of this oil, before the fire, until a sufficient quantity is absorbed. In bruises, strains, burns, scalds, swellings of the limbs, inflammations, St. Anthony's fire and shingles, the affected parts are to be anointed with some of this oil, with the aid of a feather every two or three hours, or oftener if necessary. Warts and moles of the skin are to be well anointed with this oil, after which a hot iron is to be held near the affected part, in order to cause the oil to penetrate into the skin. In this manner it is to be used every night before going to rest, until they are removed.
