An Ode to Iodex Crystal

Larry is always bringing some pharaceutical from Mexico. When I began to complain about my two joints in my first fingers aching he gave me several ointments to try. Unguente in Spanish. Then came a green jar of Iodex Crystal. Rub it on the joints, smells like Vicks Vapo Rub, and instantly my nagging nightime ache was gone...for hours.

Recently looked it up and found it was almost 100 years old, a staple of households around America. Cost five bucks in Mexico and twenty in America. They have a brown bottle version which Larry likes, and its OK but just not as immediate as the green. Sadly we have not been able to resupply the green jar and I am cast upon the brown one. It works better than my 30 dollar jar of Austrailian Dream.

The active ingredients do not seem like they would ease joint pain, and it also advertises itself as an aid to heal bruises, but I am a big fan of this stuff. People are complaining that they have changes the formula but the Mexican version is just great. Thankful for little helps with issues of aging.
