Mmm… Moist heat…
I learned several new words thanks to this ad!
Fomentation: the application of hot moist substances to the body to ease pain.
Also, the action of instigating or stirring up undesirable sentiment or actions.
Poultice: a soft, moist mass of material, typically of plant material or flour, applied to the body to relieve soreness and inflammation and kept in place with a cloth. Also known as a cataplasm or plaster.
Thermophore: a device or apparatus for retaining heat, used in therapeutic local application.
So what’s a thermophore? For fomenting, d-uh!
