Skunk grease as medicine.

I found an article about an item in the inventory of the Wisconsin Historical Society. It’s skunk grease alright. I find it was used by more than one person. It also mentions skunk oil as a remedy. How did the reference to a skunk oil salesman not beat out snake oil salesman? I love this for being one damn weird little item to find in the collection.
