THE INFORMERS HEALTH TIPS - BLACK DRAWING SALVE
In this health tip, Tannis from Alberta, Canada shows us how to make a Black Drawing Salve for drawing out splinters, venom from bug bites, stings, infections & boils. It also soothes rashes, itching, pimples & more!
BLACK DRAWING SALVE
• 1/3 C of herb-infused oil. (It's ok to use regular olive oil in a pinch. But consider getting a Mason jar & infuse your oil ahead of time so it's ready for you when you need it.) Additional herbs you could use are Plantain, Comfrey, Calendula & St. John’s Wort in equal measures.
• 1.5 to 2 T organic Castor oil
• 2 to 3 tsp beeswax. The beeswax thickens it for a firmer salve. Use 3 teaspoons if you like it firm. 2 teaspoons if you prefer it softer - like an ointment.
• 1 T Activated Charcoal
• 1 T Bentonite Clay
• About 30 drops each of these essential oils: Clove, Rosemary & Lavender (Only use 100% pure therapeutic essential oils for the best results.)
• Step 1) Combine your infused (or not) olive oil & the beeswax in a double boiler. You can use a pint size (wide mouth) Mason jar & set in a pan of shallow water---about 1 & 1/2 to 2 inches. Set the burner on low. Melt the beeswax into the oil. Once the mixture is all liquid, remove from the heat.
• Step 2) Now add the charcoal and the bentonite clay. Stir well.
• Step 3) Add in your essential oils.
• Step 4) Pour your salve into a jar. (This recipe makes four ounces)
• Step 5) Leave it to set until it's nice and firm - with lids off. If you use a little less beeswax than noted, put the salve in the freezer for about 10 minutes. Give it another good stir & then leave it alone.
• Dab or apply the salve to the area in need.
• Leave on for about 15 minutes then wipe clean.
• You can reapply or leave on longer as needed.
Use drawing salves sparingly. A little goes a long way. Because of the charcoal, the salve will stain.
