    Healing Effects of Tobacco Juice

    People in the rural South used to swear by the healing properties of tobacco juice applied to, say, a bee or wasp sting, and to some it still may be the home remedy of choice. Now scientists are catching up with folk wisdom. Recent research indicates that bruises treated with tobacco juice heal 20 percent faster than untreated bruises.

    My mother would apply 'comfrey leaves' to any of mine or my siblings bruises...I continue this practise as nothing works better in my opinion.
