Where can I find Sulfur and Cream of Tarter Wafers? I took them as a kid and never had any problems with bug bites and ticks and we played in the woods every day. As I got older I never had acne. I wanted to have my daughter try it, but can not find them. They were a little flat wafer about the size of a quarter and chewable. The taste was not bad at all....and a somewhat sweet. Can someone help me find this product if it exists?

I found this recipe but it does not include the cream of tartar. Let me know if you locate something. As you said, they were wonderful!

• Mix 1/8 teaspoon of powdered sulfur with a little honey or molasses
• Take this mixture once a day for a week in early spring.
• The next week take it every other day.
• The next week take it every three days.
• Thereafter take the mixture once a month through tick season.

Just an FYI

Sulfur is related to ingredients found in certain antibiotics, so peoplewho are sensitive to sulfa drugs might have a reaction to eating sulfur. Because of its antibiotic properties, women can develop yeast infections from ingesting too much sulfur. Also, those sensitive to sulfur might develop diarrhea from ingesting it, so even though the amount Jo mentions is tiny, go slowly

I took them frequently most of my childhood and never had any problems with sores, acne, or problem with misquitoes. I played outdoors every day and we lived in a very woody area. Never remember getting mesquito bitten. I was told it was a blood cleanser as well.

I found out that McKesson made the wafers. I contacted them and they no longer make them and don't know anyone that does.

Anytime us kids started to get a boil our Mom had everyone take some for a week and that cleared any outbreak completely up for a year or two. Hiding this wonderful wafer seems to be by large drug companies that want to charge gigantic prices for other crap that doesn't work. If I can't find them before long, I'm going to start experimenting adn make my own. I can still remember their taste adn I guess I'll go by that!

The pharmaceuticals have control of everything...makes me sick to my stomach. It is all about money. They don't care about our health. I also remember the taste and there is nothing like it. Let me know if you decide to make them. I would be interested in what you used.

Leigh, I checked the DewsVitamins site you linked to but couldn't find the product listed on there. Also their search doesn't seem to be working. Anyone else have any luck there?

I was looking forward to trying the Red Arrrow wafers from Dews but unfortunately, they contain an artificial sweetener (Sunnett).Can't imagine why they've adulterated a natural product this way--very,very disappointing!
