I was wondering what 100% natural snake oil mean? Is it 100% bull? Or do snakes really become fat and then harvested?

There are several stories about the origin of that term, but this one seems to be legit.

I use these two types of snake oil in my gem cutting. They are used to lubricate the lap and diamond during polishing. Lol
