How To Make A Mustard Pack

My grandma always made this strong smelling “mustard pack” for us grandkids when we had a chest cold. She would make this mustardy mix, place it between to cotton hankies and then make us where it on our chest.
It stunk and got warm while wearing it, but it sure worked!

Anyone have this recipe? (not edible)

    mix one part dried, ground mustard with 3 parts flour [1 Tablespoon mustard to 3 Tablespoons flour or 2 T. mustard to 6 T. flour]. Add enough room temperature water to make a thick paste. Spread this on a hankie or thin piece of flannel. Fold it over or cover with another piece. Put it on a plate and very slightly warm it in the microwave to a skin-comfortable temperature. Lay directly on chest and cover with a teeshirt or jammies. Snuggle down in some covers and stay warm. Check every 10 to 15 minutes until you see how the individual reacts.
