The History of Astyptodyne
This odd-sounding product was discovered in 1906 due to an accident in a steam plant. A steam pipe burst and severely injured three workmen in a turpentine plant. In finding their way out of the steam-filled building, one of the men fell into a pit of what is now known as ASTYPTODYNE, which was simply considered as a useless by-product of the long-leaf pine tree.
This man quickly recovered from his burns with practically no pain and little scaring. His co-workers who were carried to the local hospital suffered for many weeks from pain and scars. Intrigued by what happened, a series of experiments with the oil was conducted and it was found to be a natural healing oil.
Why the Name?
The word ASTYPTODYNE not only seems odd, but is hard to pronounce. The manufacturer is often asked why they selected such a hard name for the product. The name comes from three medical words that are beneficial actions of the healing oil.
- ANTISEPTIC: kills germs
- STYPTIC: stops bleeding
- ANODYNE: stops pain
Use as a liniment or athletic rub. Apply freely and massage well several times a day to sore muscles and swollen joints. For all other treatments apply to affected area 2-3 times daily.
Pets: Mix one teaspoon of Astyptodyne with four teaspoons of vaseline and apply three times daily. It has been effectively used on pets, horses, and cattle as a healing agent and liniment. It heals scratches, bruises, sores, reduces swelling, mange, and is a flea repellent.
Do not bandage open wounds or burns.
