Nessmuk's Dope

Categories: Viii Little Foes Of The Trailer

In giving the recipe for his dope, Nessmuk says that it produces a glaze

over the skin and that in preventing insect bites he has never known it

to fail. This is the dope:

Pine tar 3 oz.

Castor oil 2 oz.

Oil of pennyroyal 1 oz.

Simmer all together over a slow fire, and bottle.

This is sufficient for four persons for two weeks.
