my grandmother swore by this stuff....I distinctly remember the smell b/c she would cover her hands in it every night before bed....after putting the pink foam curlers in her hair of course..why in the world am I thinking of mentholatum, you may ask?...I'm stuffed up with what is most likely the office cold...or bird flu...and I took a shower last night with one of those fizzy shower soother tablets and it struck me how much it smelled like mentholatum...I'm not sure it helped me breathe but I enjoyed the flashback ;)
