This "snake oil" was sold as such but the ingredients do not include snake oil. The bottle clearly states: "Contents. Mustard Oil, Pine Oil, Petroleum Oil, Paprika, Camphor Gum, Oil of Wintergreen." It was sold by "C.F. Sams" in "Durham, N.C." and is contained in a generic screw-top prescription bottle. "Recommended for Corns, Bunions, Toothache, Head and Chest Colds, Sore Throat, Cuts and Bruises, Arthritis, Headache and Sore Feet," it was called "Old Fashioned Snake Oil. World's Famous--Double Strength."
