It could have been used to help assuage symptoms of colds and flu and other ailments. It may have also been in a formula with other oils such as chamomile, marjoram, orange, thyme, oregano, lemon, juniper, fir and other plants. Whatever was indigenous to the area was employed. It was normally used in a pot on the open hearth and simmered, and also was good for getting rid of some of the aromas that were inherent before the advent of septic systems! They were also used in mattresses and on floors to help mitigate any unsavory odors that may arise.
