Tips and Techniques on using George Washington Carver's  Peanut Rubbing Oil: Created by Curtis Labs in Detroit, Michigan in 1943

The information contained on this page was created by Dr. Austin W. Curtis of Curtis Labs on how to use the George Washington Carver Rubbing Oil for 20 different aliments.  Dr. Curtis was George Washington Carver's assistant for the last 8 years of Carver's life.  George Washington Carver created the Peanut Rubbing Oil in the 1920's.  However, George Washington Carver gave the formula to Dr. Curtis.  Dr. Curtis said the following about Carver and the Peanut Rubbing Oil: "For the last eight years of Carver's life we worked side by side. Our friendship grew to where we looked upon each other as father and son. I remember when Carver gave me his formula for rubbing oil.  He said, Austin put your name on this rubbing oil and use my picture.  That was the beginning of Curtis Rubbing Oil." Elements 4 Nature was given permission by Natural Health Options to change the name back to the one who created the Peanut Rubbing Oil, George Washington Carver.

Dr. George Washington Carver Peanut Rubbing Oil: Carver's Original Formula

The George Washington Carver (GWC) Peanut Rubbing Oil was created between the years of 1900 and 1910 by George Washington Carver, the famous agricultural scientist who invented over 300 products from peanuts.  After working with his assistant, Dr. Austin W. Curtis, for a couple of years, George Washington Carver named the famous Peanut Rubbing Oil after Dr. Curtis out of respect for him.  Dr. Curtis, a chemist by profession, was the assistant to George Washington Carver for eight years before Carver's death.  Together they studied the peanut and discovered proteins and organic properties within the structure of the peanut that could be used for multiple applications.

GWC Peanut Rubbing Oil was created for people who prefer alternative medication, as a specialty-premium rub that provides deep penetration for minor aches and pains.   GWC Peanut Rubbing Oil is known for maximum penetration to relieve stiffness in joints, joint-friction from bones rubbing together, tight and sore muscles, and restricted range of movement.  These problems require a lubricating rub that penetrates, lubricates and medicates without side effects sometimes caused by non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs often prescribed for arthritic conditions.

GWC Peanut Rubbing Oil is a multi-purpose oil that can be used in a variety of ways, with hot soaks, wraps and direct applications.  Be careful not to exceed recommended dosage for hot soaks where the entire body is submerged.

Caution:  Do not use if allergic to peanuts.  Do not use GWC Peanut Rubbing Oil with heating pads, or in conditions where vascular problems exist.  GWC Peanut Rubbing Oil is for external use only.  Follow instructions on product use.  Avoid contact with eyes or other sensitive areas of the body.  Do not apply GWC Peanut Rubbing Oil to open sores, ulcers or broken skin.  Discontinue use of GWC Peanut Rubbing Oil if redness of skin occurs.  If pain persists, consult a physician for future treatment.
