Item #210: Miller's Snake Oil - An Agreeable Liniment

Made even more agreeable by the total absence of snake.

The label confesses that it instead contains Camphor, Turpentine, Coal Oil, Carbolic Acid, Cassia Oil, Eucalyptus Oil and Menthyl Salicylate.

All of which have been found to be more soothing to the joints than the rancid renderings of rattling reptiles.


Miller's Oils were a drugstore staple from the early 1900's through the 1950's.
