Ingredients

  • pine needles (yellow pine preferably)

Directions

Just yank a few pine needles off the nearest tree and chew them up. Swallow the juice. It will stop stomach cramps,spasms and hunger paings.

Note: I have no idea how it works but it does and it also covers the smell of cigarettes and tobacco when hunting.

Warning: I was looking at the recipes and noticed pine needles, upon looking at the
recipe I strongly felt the need to add a caution to this recipe; pregnant
women must NOT use this as pine needles will cause "abortion" this also
happens in cows, when they eat the pine needles they will drop their calf's
(dead) within a couple of days if not hours. Please add this caution.

Thank you
