Friends, here is my testimony short and sweet. When
it comes to personal hygiene, beautification and even personal
needs; there’s nothing handier than a tub of lard.
Yes, the all natural gloss and lubrication of rendered pork fat
has served many a young lass well into adulthood and beyond. You
fellows out there have long benefited from it, too! Lard
is everyone’s beauty secret. And it smells yummy,
Just look at this list of uses:
Hair Conditioner and Dressing
Deodorant—a fragrance that is pleasing to both man and beast!
Hand and Body Cream
(why do you think they call it “makin’ bacon”! Sooeee!!)
Ointment for wounds and burns
All purpose seasoning
Dog training aid
Take it from me, when it came to beauty and personal needs,
Granny and Paw didn’t fret! Ain’t nothing can’t
be helped with a spoonful or two of pure lard.
