Tar Heel Cure


Author(s):
Abstract:
Verlee discusses the history of Astyptodyne, a product that has been around for 102 years and one that has long been a staple in the medicine cabinets of generations of North Carolinians. The medicine was discovered by accident in Wilmington in 1906 and has only one ingredient--pine oil. However, what happens to the oil between the tree and the bottle is a closely guarded secret. The medicine is said to cure everything but a broken heart.
