Black Drawing Salve and Comfrey & Calendula Salve / Balm Set
Our Black Drawing Salve and Double Duty Salve are the basics in our medicine chest. You will receive one tin of each in the size of your choice. The drawing salve can be used on stings, splinters, boils and bug bites. Use a cotton swab to apply salve to affected area and then cover with a bandage. Reapply every 4-6 hours as needed. Ingredients: Olive Oil infused with Goldenseal, Castor Oil, Beeswax, Redmond Clay, Activated Charcoal, French Lavender Essential Oil. You will notice that this formula is made with thick oils. That is because you want the clay and charcoal to sit on top of the skin, not soak in. It is because they are porous and will soak up all of the excess fluids coming from the wound. This formula also does not contain any 'healing' herbs. The reason for this is that you want to take care of the infection / splinter / stinger before the skin starts to heal. Otherwise you may end up with an abscess or boil. Once the Black Drawing Salve has done its work, you can then apply our Mom's Marigold Salve or our Double Duty Duo calendula and comfrey salve. The Double Duty Duo salve is handmade in small batches. We use high quality (food grade) Sunflower oil solar infused with Comfrey leaf and root. Then we add our calendula/olive oil solar infusion and beeswax. This is the go to salve in our house when the boys get a boo-boo. This salve can be used on scrapes, abrasions, sores, and cuts. Just use a cotton swab to apply to affected area and cover with a bandage. Apply as needed. We believe in making small batches as needed in order to ensure that our customers are always getting the freshest product possible. All of our infused oils are solar infused.
