"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."
Mr. Gaby, you're in luck. I purchased some just this past June from Kemps in Claxton. It still works like it did when grew up Claxton.
"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!!!"
