What do you do with oil that can't be refined or used for commercial purposes?

 

Apparently you tell people that it's great for your health. In Azerbaijan's north-western city of Naftalan there is a spa that believes a crude oil bath can cure you of a bunch of things.

 

The local oil is used to treat to cure muscular, skin and bone conditions as well as gynaecological andoily remedy neurological problems. According to a legend, the healing properties of Naftalan's "miraculous oil" were discovered by accident when a camel left to die near a pool of oil was cured.

Anybody up for an oily road trip?
