Breck's Dope

Category: Viii Little Foes Of The Trailer

Pine tar 3 oz.
Olive (or castor oil) 2 oz.
Oil of pennyroyal 1 oz.
Citronella 1 oz.
Creosote 1 oz.
Camphor (pulverized) 1 oz.
Large tube of carbolated vaseline.

Heat the tar and oil, and add the other
ingredients; simmer over slow fire until well
mixed. The tar may be omitted if disliked or for
ladies' use.

Breck tells us that his dope was planned to be a counter-irritant after
being bitten as well as a preventer of bites.
