Saving compress

Osteoarthritis of the knee joints, during exacerbation there are very severe pains.
Heating pads help a lot. And no wonder — because the warming compress causes a prolonged expansion of blood vessels,
Increasing the flow of blood to the skin and deeper lying tissues, which contributes to the resolution of the inflammation and acts as an analgesic.

To make a compress is not difficult:
A piece of cloth, folded several times, is moistened with a previously prepared medicinal solution. The moistened tissue is applied to a sore spot. On top put cellophane, which should be more tissue and completely to close it.
Cellophane is applied a thick layer of cotton wool or a woolen shawl.

And now about a medicinal solution for a compress. We tried many recipes, but settled on one, the most effective in our case:

Take a tablespoon of honey, dried mustard and vegetable oil.
All mix and bring to a boil. Now the mixture is ready, it needs to be put on a double layer of gauze and make a compress, but it needs at least one and a half hours to keep it on the affected joint.
In the intervals between the compresses, we rubed fir oil into the heated joints. Thus, the inflammation could be removed very quickly.
