Comments

"Unfortunately, it appears that Kemp's Pharmacy has stopped selling Eupinol. Two years ago, I was told that I bought some of the last small bottles of this great product. I agree with the other comments about some of it's benefits. What's more, it was a family treasure and my Mother always had Eupinol available for scrapes and bruises - for children and adults. I hope someone will tell me that Kemp's is bringing it back."
"I am trying it on poison ivy, has anyone used if for that before? I think the bottle I have is 20 years old at least, but still smells nice and strong."
"still use this product. I find it in Claxton, Ga where I grew up. that is the only place so far that I have found it. I love it and still use it for cuts, scrapes, bug bites, etc "
"this amazing anesthetic is still available from kemp's pharmacy in claxton, georgia. . .it takes the itch out of mosquito bites almost as soon as it is applied. . .i love the smell. . .pine and eucalyptus!!!"
